I am grateful that I am talented in the art of clearing emotional garbage for my SimplyHealed clients! It is so rewarding to work with someone and help them clean up the crap they've been dragging around with them, to help them move on to a more positive life!

Today I got to spend a few hours with my Transitions client. I love that I am compassionate and have the freedom of time to spend two hours a week with a senior who lives alone.

I also am grateful that my client is interested in ideas and open to learning new things - our time together is so fulfilling!

Follow Through

I love that I now follow through with things and no longer procrastinate! It feels SO good to just get things done!

Our new interim minister started this fall and I've been attending just about as many services as I can since he came. I even joined the choir, which means that on the Sundays we sing, I sit through both (almost identical) services!

Well, this morning as I came in the building carrying the 15 tablecloths I washed from the Thanksgiving Fest Event, just about every other person I passed greeted me by name, before I was even able to put my name tag on! Now I know what it feels like to once again be connected to my church community. It has been a long six years without that connection and I'm so grateful to have it in my life again.

I don't know that this post is really within the assignment, but I am grateful for my ability to make these connections. There! I made it fit!

My Business

Today I am super grateful for my business and my ability to attract amazing people to my business. I love getting to know wonderful people through my work.

Today is Black Friday - the beginning of the Christmas shopping frenzy. I'm grateful that I don't have to participate. I'm grateful that I shop locally when I do shop and I grateful for living in a place where this wasn't an event!

Today was a long, wonderful day full of people, service, fun, food, connecting...

I got to the church at 10:30 to help with set up for our Fest Event, after waiting for what seemed like forever for it to get that late! I was at the church until about noon, came home and make another dish for the potluck, then headed back to the church at 3:00 to start cooking gravy and potatoes. In the kitchen until 5:30, then enjoying wonderful food (love that we have both vegan and gluten-free sections at our potlucks), conversation, games, and a tad bit of clean up before heading home at 9:30.

It was a marathon of a day, but oh so satisfying!

So in light of what this day brought, I am grateful for my endurance. I was pretty much full of energy up to the end. I even volunteered to bring the big stack of dirty tablecloths home to wash - one and a half loads today, the rest tomorrow!

Powerful Intention

Wow! I've really learned how to use my powerful intention in my life. Today after dropping Stephanie off for her early morning flight, I was faced, once again, with heavy rain and extra heavy holiday traffic.

Each time it looked like it was going to slow down I said an affirmation about traffic flowing freely where I needed to go and it just would!

I'm a Good Driver

Today, driving Stephanie up to Portland to catch an early morning flight tomorrow, I'm very grateful that I'm such a good driver. The conditions where pretty terrible - raining cats and dogs with holiday traffic thrown in for good measure!

Even with the less than ideal conditions we made it without any problems.

Working on Self

I'm grateful for the time I take to work on myself and be a better me. Part of that is doing exercises like this where I delve into what I appreciate about myself. We can all use a little more appreciation in our lives and I believe it is important to give ourselves what we need. That's why I buy myself flowers and chocolates when I want them!

I am grateful for living an authentic life. I'm not perfect, and I don't want to be. Sometimes I slip, but I am always striving for my mission: Living a life of gratitude and authenticity.

I am Happy

I love that I'm a happy person. When I look around and see so many people who just don't get there, I'm especially grateful for my disposition!

Night Owl & Early Bird

Today is the last day of school for a week. I usually stay up pretty late and I'm oh so grateful that I'm not able to sleep in - I truly wake up naturally around 6:30 in the morning most mornings!

I'm actually only able to sleep about six and a half hours a night and I wake up perfectly rested and I'm energized all day! A lot of that has to do with the doTERRA supplements that I take each day, since before I started them, I had to sleep a full eight hours a night, but I can honestly say that I'm grateful to my body for reacting as it does to the supplements!

Deal with it!

I had to tell some workmen that I wasn't happy with the work they had done while I was away last week. They came to fix it, but weren't really able to fix it all that well. I'm grateful I was able to express my disappointment while being kind and not making them feel horrible. I do hate to deal with stuff like this, but I did it!

I always hate paying someone to do something I could have done better!

Letting Go

Today and Steve and Bekka leave for California, I am grateful for my ability to let go. To allow others in my life to go and explore without my need to manage, control, or be there. Wishing Bekka well in her championship competition!

Today I am grateful for my ability to be and remain centered. That is all. That is enough.

SimplyHealed has been such a gift this past week! Today I get to put into practice what I've been learning with a client I've been seeing for almost two years. I KNOW this healing session will stick and have lasting affects unlike my other work.

Today I am so truly grateful for the gift of healing. I have the ability to heal others (well, truly they heal themselves, but I have the ability to clear the congestion that is preventing them from healing!).

Today was the first day I ever recall being "called to prayer". As I was waking this morning, I had the overwhelming need to pray, and it was very, very specific. I felt completely called to pray for the living prophet of the LDS church to receive word from God that their stance on marriage equality be revised.

Later today, unknown to me earlier that morning, our church service was on marriage equality!

For some reason I feel that my prayer will be answered, I guess that's faith. I don't expect that it will be answered today, but I feel strongly that it will be answered soon.

I am so grateful for my new-found spirituality and my ability to be open and accepting of such diverse beliefs.

Immune System

Today I am ever so grateful for my Immune System and its ability to fight off bugs. I was feeling like I was really getting sick and with some Essential Oils and some SimplyHealed, I completely avoided actually getting sick.

Friday, November 11, 2011


Today as my Simply Healed training finishes up, I'm grateful for my ability to understand concepts and put them all together to get the whole picture.

Thursday, November 10, 2011


Today, after many days in Utah eating food I don't normally eat, I'm ever so grateful for my body's ability to process foods and pull nutrients out of food that seem to be so lacking! I'm also extremely grateful for my healthy immune system that is still holding after so many days on the road.

Today I am grateful for being open to my new friends and open to hearing what they want to share about their religion. I ended up touring both the St. George Tabernacle and the visitor's center of the Temple today with a few gals from my class.

Tuesday, November 08, 2011


Today, as I start my Simply Healed training, I am grateful for my ability to fully appreciate others. Sitting in the front row (center), I am grateful for my natural tendency to give speakers positive feedback as they are speaking.

Sense of Adventure

Today, as I venture off to St. George, UT, I am grateful for my sense of adventure. I love that I am willing to set off on my own and go learn new things.

Sunday, November 06, 2011


Today, as I drive kids around, take kids shopping, wait for kids at various venues, go get stuff kids forgot, I am grateful for my infinite patience. I am more patient than most people I know and I feel that is a gift I give others around me.

Saturday, November 05, 2011


Today I am grateful for the knowledge I have of Essential Oils and my ability to help others through this wonderful gift!

Friday, November 04, 2011


Today I am grateful for being aware of the beauty around me. I went on a hike with some friends and was astounded by the beauty of Autumn.

Today I am grateful that I make the commitment to connect with my GUTS sisters every month and dig deeper inside alongside these wonderful women.

GUTS Challenge - Self Gratitude

On our GUTS call this month, we were given the challenge to write something about ourselves that we are grateful for each day of November. Not something external like a roof over my head or anything like that. Something about ourselves we are grateful for.

If you are willing, play along! You'll be glad you did!
