Consciously Thankful

This world is filled with intentional wrongdoing and harm and perhaps some started out unintentionally. How willing are we to rectify our wrongs, especially once we become conscious of our actions and deeds? My mind is filled with these thoughts as I read and hear people talking about evil, immoral and inhumane world-wide happenings.  I was further reminded during one of our church services about our conscious and unconscious actions. With these thoughts I was forced to do some introspection, and I wondered how willing am I to correct my unconscious wrongs when I became aware of it.

I’m writing this blog as we approach our thanksgiving celebration church service. I further do introspection as to how I can do better and show gratitude. I’m especially thankful for my willingness to work on my shortcomings. Thankfully there is time to rectify the conscious wrongdoing into conscious good. The importance of appreciating others can only but make me a better person. Showing gratitude is as rewarding as receiving it. Small gestures of appreciation can make someone’s day. Alongside humbleness is kindness which is free to give and can be shared at any time. If anything, just be kind.

Happy Thanksgiving.

“The world has enough beautiful mountains and meadows, spectacular skies and serene lakes. It has enough lush forests, flowered fields, and sandy beaches. It has plenty of stars and the promise of a new sunrise and sunset every day. What the world needs more of is people to appreciate and enjoy it.”

Living Life Consciously

Many things occurred in 1972, but perhaps the most notably, 1972 was the longest year in the history of recorded time, outlasting other years by a whopping two seconds. Read more on this here https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/why-1972-longest-history-003323744.html. I was wondering why there’s so many people I know, heard or read of that’s turning 50 this year. Perhaps it’s because I’m one of 5 cousins turning 50 this year! That’s a lot of us, right? This reminds me of when I got a new car and suddenly I notice all the cars with that exact colour and model like mine on the road. Maybe it’s something like that…

My thoughts further wonder as I do introspection, becoming aware of myself and the world around me. I’m conscious of my faults and I’m encouraged to making my years count instead of counting the years. I know that I don’t have a perfect recipe for life, but I know that I can always practice and strive to live life consciously.

Live your life consciously and honourably

Live purposefully and become the greatest version of yourself

Live to express and lighten the load of living through laughter

Live a life filled with care and kindness

Live in joy and a love for life every single day

Please share some thoughts on living life consciously.
