{Charlie’s Gift Perspective}

Each of us has a certain perspective on the events which happen in our daily lives. All our past experiences cause us to see the things which happen as ‘good’ or ‘bad’ in some cases. It’s really interesting that two different people can have the same experience and one person can see what happened as a positive experience and the other as a negative!

Whether you see what you are experiencing as good or bad, there’s a gift from the experience. Today we are focusing on good times and the gifts we receive from them. While it’s not true for everyone, typically my good times involve having fun! It could also be a deeply spiritual experience, or even one that was dangerous or exciting.

The gift in good times is often the connection I’ve made inside myself. I see something beautiful about the experience which also shows me some aspect of myself that I might not be recognizing. I honor the gift by reflecting back, energetically expressing my gratitude and reconnecting with gifts that show up for me in this reflection.

Finding the gift in ourselves

So, for today’s challenge the invitation is to contemplate a time in your life that you had an experience which was a truly a great one. Once you’ve identified that event, ask yourself a few questions:

  1. What made the experience so great?
  2. What did you learn about yourself through the experience that was so amazing?
  3. What part of that experience still lives inside you, which you can honor as a gift you’ve received and are grateful for?

 

Simple ways to be grateful for our gifts. And of course, you don’t have to stick to our calendar – you can be grateful for anything that comes along today. This is just a prompt.

I’d love to hear what you are honoring today and how you are doing it. Check in with us and leave some comments.
