Definiteness of purpose is the starting point of all achievement.W. Clement Stone
I was listening to Les Brown’s “The Power of Purpose” on Audible and he spoke about the importance of keeping your commitments to yourself. That’s when I realised that I had not being as disciplined as previous years in keeping my commitment to be grateful for something everyday. So here I am, seeing it through because I want to. Because it brings me joy and a sense of awe at all when I think of all the things I can be grateful for, both big and small.
🌼Today I am grateful for so much. A wonderfulChristmas spent with family. The means to purchase the one gift that my son really wanted. Safe travels to and from my sister’s place. My family’s health which allowed us to spend Christmas together. This time that I have to myself because my son unexpectedly ended up spending his holiday with his dad’s family. My neighbours for the wonderful impromptu conversations. I have so much to be grateful for. Thank you God🌼
I didn’t really take any pics this Christmas. Below is a collage of the only pics I took. I lived in the moment and completely forgot about my phone and it was just awesome. The pudding was a traditional Christmas pudding that my late mum used to make for us every single Christmas. This was the first time I made it and, thankfully, it tasted just like hers. I was so glad and very grateful to be able to bring an element of the Christmas she created for us into our celebration yesterday. For my efforts I found a R5 in my pudding. 😁😁
