Today, here are just a few of the infinite number of blessings in my life that I am choosing to appreciate in this moment.
I am grateful that I don’t have to think about my health all that much which gives rise to the risk of taking it for granted. I do not. I feel very blessed indeed that I am strong and healthy and emotionally robust.
My peace and quiet
Peace and quiet is my No 1 need so that I can be spiritually nourished and ready to do my work. Despite living in London, I am grateful that mostly my neighbours and I peacefully co-exist and find the patience and good judgement to turn a deaf ear to the occasional infringement.
I am very lucky indeed that I have work I love with business owners and creative entrepreneurs and that increasingly we are all moving in a direction which is as much about having a wonderful life as it is about the single-minded pursuit of profits. Variety is the spice of my working life and I am so thrilled to draw to me fabulous people who work in a variety of different markets, professions and niches.
The sanctuary of my home
Because I live in London my home is small, but it is also perfectly formed and clutter-free and it meets all of my needs. It includes Mitsy the cat, the Abundance Shed, a comfy cosy bed, hot and cold running water, a washing machine, a shower, a big garden, central heating and WiFi. How does it get better than that?
It’s very jolly to be able to see the lighter side of life in any moment. Either you’ve got one, or you haven’t. Fortunately I have and it has steered my very nicely through some of life’s trickier patches.
A business that allows me to experiment
Right now my current favourite experiment is with inviting clients to Pay What You Want. Fab.
A Kindle full of reading material
What riches! A huge amount of books on my Kindle, and the ability to carry my entire library with me on each and every trip.
A chance to write every day
And express myself on this, my blog. And a writing desk with a view of the garden.
London on my doorstep
Everywhere in this beautiful city is only a very short drive for me as my home is very central. I love driving, especially round town. And it is lovely to see the sights (again, without taking them for granted) and enjoy them so close at hand. Never more than twenty minutes to anywhere I want to go.
My Creative and Curious Brain
I’m never bored.
In addition to my Kindle, I love my laptop for work and my iPad for leisure. I appreciate having the answer to every question at my fingertips which means my curiosity is always satisfied in a heartbeat, or pretty much always anyway.
Ocado and Amazon
All my needs are met without the need to ever visit a shop. Bliss.
Cinema and TV
Some wonderful drama but increasingly I notice I learn the best stuff from watching real people do real things or talk about their lives. I learn stuff which is useful for my clients and stuff which is useful for my own life guidance. And I am moved and inspired.
This Wonderful Weather
The apparently endless summer of 2014, days and days and days of sunshine, my very favourite thing.
Friends and Family
Love and support and good times.
A Nespresso Machine
A quality cup of George on tap; going to reward myself with one now.
What are you appreciating this Sunday? There’s so much it’s difficult to know where to start – and stop!
