Living on Purpose- Dec 24, 2019 -
Maybe you aren’t looking ahead past Christmas like I am right now, but I am already gearing up for New Years’. Along with that comes New Years Resolutions and I just realized we don’t often stop at the end of the year and look back to see what we have accomplished thus far.
So I am going to do that right now. This is my Thankfulness list. It’s my accomplishments. It’s my dreams coming true and it’s my adventures. To live life like this is important to me. It’s how I’m living life on purpose.
Confucious says,” The more man meditates upon good thoughts, the better will be his world and the world at large.”
I hope this encourages you to make your own list of accomplishments to share with the world.
I am an avid reader of Bella Grace Magazine and one of the many positive actions in their Field Guide is making personal lists of gratitude and positivity. They have inspired me in this way to make my own list for 2019.

Do you see a theme in your own list? What do you place importance on? Maybe it’s dancing in your kitchen with the kids or watching them take their first steps. Small dreams and big dreams coming true all need to be celebrated.
That is precisely why I made this list to celebrate.
I hope you find joy and peace as you look back at your own many accomplishments. Would you be brave and share them too?
I hope so lovely friend. Thank you for reading along and following this crazy, fun, journey with me.
Until Next Year,
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year
