Words On Gratitude: How to Express Gratitude

Words on Gratitude Series

As I continue with this series I found myself asking what I was going to discuss this week. A memory came to mind. This was actually a few years ago now but I still remember it like it was yesterday. I was about twenty-one years old and I’d finally moved out of my parent’s house.
I moved in with my sister and this experience has caused me to grow and learn so much. One thing I learned is how grateful I am to have my sister. I love all my siblings and appreciate them for different reasons. This particular sister comes to mind because I remember expressing gratitude to her early on in our living together as housemates.

She let me move in to her house. This time was challenging for me and I’ve grown so much since then. One thing that I desperately needed at the time was a better home environment. I needed to be around someone who could understand me more, someone that I had more in common with and could learn positive things from. Moving in with my sister has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made at this point in my life.

I remember giving her a thank you card just telling how much I appreciated her support. I don’t even think she realizes how much I needed this at the time and honestly how much it’s meant to me this year to be with her. I’m tearing up a little bit just thinking about how much I needed to be in this environment with her these past few years. I love my sister and am I grateful to have her and all my family and friends.

When was the last time you showed someone gratitude? How can you show someone gratitude? I challenge you to dig deep and think of someone that you are having a difficult time with right now and explore how you can express gratitude to them (think about the lesson you are learning from them and not about the negative aspects of your experience with them).

Until Next Time,

Every Door Is a Door. Walk Through It.
-Kimmy B. (Me)
So what does this mean? This is in reference to the idea of the door or window of opportunity. I’m currently searching for a holistically better job. In the process, I’m not accepting no. If some one says they’re not interested, I ask them if they know someone who is. That person who’s not interested may be the person who introduces me to the person who is. Every door is a door. Walk through it. Leave no stone unturned.

Until Next Time,
Kimmy B.

Words on Gratitude: The Affects of Gratitude

I think about the affects of gratitude on my life in relation to getting out of debt. I have so much to be grateful for. I have no space for anything else. Anything being negative thinking. Sadness about my situation. Feeling tired. I can honestly say that I am very happy. My circumstances don’t control me or my feelings. Each night I say at least 3 things I’m grateful for before going to bed. Try it and see how much more positive and prosperous you’ll become!

Until Next Time,

You can’t shake hands with a clinched fist. — Golda Mier

Growth is what comes to mind when I reflect on this quote. You can’t become prosperous if you don’t allow new experiences and people to enter your life either. It’s alright to be protective of yourself, especially if you’re focusing on personal growth. Don’t be too protective though because you might scare away the very opportunity you’ve been seeking!

Until Next Time,

Post: Impatience is the Enemy of Prosperity
Comments: The title of this post says it all. If you want to live prosperously and get out of debt, you must be patient. You can’t be quick to spend money or take it out of investments that seem risky in the moment. Money is something that takes time to grow and manage. It’s a process that takes thought and patience.

Comments: Need a new car? Got a leaky roof? Don’t skimp on important things. Pay the money because it will say you money in the long run. Why plunk $500 down a car that will only last a few months? This is an interesting perspective that makes sense. Think about your what you’re buying and how much it will really cost you. Read here.

Until Next Time,
