About mid-week the days start to flow together for me. I often find myself checking the calendar to confirm the day and date.
I like realizing it is Wednesday, I think Wednesdays are nice.
They offer a sense of accomplishment, we made it through the first two days of the week and the weekend seems within reach, and a sense of completion, there is still enough time to finish what “needs” to be done before the weekend arrives.
All in all, Wednesday is not a bad place to be. Hope you are enjoying yours.
I am using mine to follow-up on last Friday’s post. I mentioned then that I would explain my choice of the word “gratitudinal” words, so . . .
For me,”gratitudinal” as in Gratitudinal Thinking reflects 4 ideas:
I know I am not the first or the only one using “gratitudinal”, but from the moment I said it to myself – before I ever read or heard anyone else use it – it rang true to me and I still carry those good feelings in my heart and head each time I hear it.
Gratitude – Being aware and really noticing and noting the good
things in my life.
Attitude – That awareness has allowed me to create a much
more positive attitude.
Latitudinal – By giving myself “enough scope or leeway for some
freedom of choice, action, or thinking” (Encarta Online
English Dictionary), I discovered following my bliss is a
perfectly logical and realistic option. (More about bliss in
April – bet you can’t wait.)
Longitudinal – And, what I was looking for then, and am experiencing now,
is consistent “development over a period of time”
(Same Dictionary), gratitudinal thinking provides long-lasting
rewards – I like that.
I also like making-up words.
And, I always feel better after reviewing the good things in my life.
Next week we will add another dimension to this practice – writing and savoring your three-things a day, which will really knock your socks off – not the doing it, none of us really wants to do any of this stuff at first, but the fact that it all works so well.
I will explain it all. The Who, What and Why.
Meanwhile, if you haven’t already, check out my Page tabs above the photo.
I have been busy updating them.
Thanks, see you on Friday.
