2012 is the year of being "I am" living in the moment and being thankful for something each and every day. Hoping you will join us and expand this blog with your gratitude of the day and that together we will all live a much more positive and thankful life.

Today is a gift you see it only comes around every 4 years so I thought instead of my usual photo I would just leave you today with these few words of wisdom from  Dr Sue Morter and wish you all a very joyful, happy, healthy, successful and grateful day.

“Begin With the IN in Mind  

You mean the “end in mind?”  Nope!  The IN.

When we focus on the End only, we get all attached to how it’s going to look when we meet our goals, when the project comes to fruition, and when the trophy arrives.  We get convinced that this is the way it has to be.  We do whatever it takes to make it happen and we ‘try’ hard.

But have you by any chance noticed that it doesn’t really happen that way all that often?  Doesn’t turn out quite like that?   

Or doesn’t last even if it does come about?
Better to focus on the experience that you will have rather than the outcome.  Better to feel the feeling that would happen if it landed even better than you dreamt of.  That’s where the magic happens!  Better to ‘have it’ rather than ‘want it’.  Have it on the inside.  On the IN-side.

Begin your endeavor with the IN in mind so that you build a better relationship with the part of you that will actually do the manifesting in the first place. Yup – Success comes FROM you, not TO you.   

Focus in people!”   Dr Sue Morter

I am so thankful today for nature. It is truly amazing that from something that looked as though it was dying suddenly springs new life. Not only did Nature put on new growth in this Clematis at the end of it’s season but an unusual second flowering as well with not 12 flowers as in it’s first blooming but a further 18 new buds which are starting to open and will produce an amazing show.

The ability to share a beautiful beach with a lone hang glider just above, the beauty of the great coastline of Australia offering many kinds of beaches from crowded and popular ones to quiet and isolated ones. How thankful we all should be for the gift of such beauty around our land.

Even the seagulls agree Perth, Australia is paradise each and every day. WOW how lucky are we to live in this beautiful part of the world, how incredibly grateful am I that we made the move and now live in freedom each and every day enjoying paradise and bringing up our families here in safety, THANK YOU AUSTRALIA.

Today I was walking through the shopping mall and I heard John Denver singing “Rocky Mountain High”  I was reminded of what a priviledge it is to have been in the Rocky mountains, to have experienced them in all their glory, their awesome size and beauty and for this, today and each day I am constantly thankful. The ability I have had to experience this world in all its glory is an awesome experience and one for which I am constantly grateful.

I am so grateful that I am able to see the world through the eyes of a little boy, the excitment, the adventure, the experience, the wonder of all that is around me. We found this delightful peacock feather it was almost as big as him and gave him great joy swirling it around the room and having it towering above him. The pleasure and fun of being a child. and experiencing all the things around you for the first time. Love it, Live it, Be it, I am.

Well, well, well after planting a small passion fruit plant about a year ago, lovingly watering it, yes and chatting to it!!! finally it is now covered in flowers which will become a good crop of fruit. I am so thankful for the ability to plant and grow all the fruit and veges that one wants, the universe provides the sun, rain, energy, new life and all else that is needed for a plant to thrive.

Unusual cloud structure over the hills in Perth, maybe we are in for a storm. Today is 49% humidity and 36 degrees of heat and as my family and friends would know I am sooo happy.  I am truly grateful for hot sunny days with humidity as it reminds me of Durban which was my home so many years ago.

“It is always the little things that make a profound difference” Are you making a difference today?

YES it is true I still live in paradise! WOW, we actually do have the most beautiful beaches and I am so thankful that on a hot and steamy day like today I am able to go down to the beach and swim in this cool pristine blue water. It is a choice so why not chose to enjoy and be grateful for all that you have?

Today I am very proud to say that I have become a partner with B1G1, a venture of generosity and giving, creating a better future for all. I am grateful for the fact that I was invited to this presentation, that by my being there  I have given 87 children access to water and that by my partnering I will continue to give from all my continued success. “Because businesses have the power to change lives” WOW
