Counting My Blessings - 05.22.16

Home Inspector with Complete Home Inspections, Inc. TN Lic#050

    Because I have been focused on the business, I have not been posting much here on ActiveRain. Yes, virtual relationships are great and I really appreciate the support from my ActiveRain friends. However . . . virtual friends are like virtual money and my participation here in the rain has not produced income. Therefore, I must focus on what provides income for my team and family.
    Last week, I was able to have a visit with my brother Bobby. We have not seen each other in over 60 years. I set no expectations and it turned out wonderful. We have been in constant communication almost every day before our meeting and since and I am grateful.
    I am grateful for all the business and relationships that I have been forming over the past month. I am learning much.
    I am grateful for my life. Every day I learn and every day presents new opportunities.
    I am grateful that every day I have been given. Before I get out of bed, I have run through a list of things I am grateful for. The Universe loves a grateful attitude. Every day, I write a minimum of 5 “I am statements”. i.e. I am a loving, caring person and folks love me.
    I am grateful for all that I have learned over the past several weeks in BOLD. Although I will have to review my notes many times over, it has made a huge difference in my life.
    In short, I have much to be grateful for. Health, prosperity and growth. I am just happy to be me.

And that my friends, is my 2¢’s worth for this evening.

Your two cents are worth a million, Michael. Remembering to be grateful for all we have can take practice, but it's what makes life the most rewarding.

Good morning Michael. I like the term, "Virtual Money", hard to spend for sure and truly has no value at all.

Hi Michael.  That was a million dollar blog.  Meeting your brother after 60 years gave me goose bumps reading that.

Michael - that's a lot of good gratitude. I can't even imagine what you felt when you met up with your brother after 60 years! I pray you will have more quality time together with Bobby and all the people whom you need in your life right now, especially with those who really, really need you, and you don't even know it!

God bless you!

Hi Michael --- I was just thinking about you today and hope you are doing well. That's pretty incredible to meet up with your brother after so many decades and it sounds like you were able to reconnect in a positive way.  

I understand what you say about the power of this place on a virtual level and the only place virtual money may grow is on trees.  You seem to be firmly based in reality and that's a good place as it being grateful.  

To good health, happiness and success.
