DSC_7213

I hope the past two months have been going great for you. I decided to put them (Jan and Feb) together, because it might be fun. First, I watched a show where Regena Thomashauer spoke about this excellent practise/tool for motivation before you start your meetings. You simply state a brag, gratitude and a desire. I loved it so much and have decided to take it up. It basically highlights the inspirational qualities you possess.

I brag: The beauty of our country, which I keep discovering every day. Despite everything that’s been going on. It manages to offer therapy.

My gratitude: a loving and supportive group of friends ad family who keep me going and encourage me to make my dreams come true

I desire: To keep doing what I’m doing, learning from challenges and embracing change

Regena stresses how we’re so afraid to boast lately and the value in knowing your strengths, what are your brags, gratitude and desire this month?

Making:  Dinner plans in advance for some lovely friends, on the 31st March at Faze 2. Should be good… Should be fun! It’s a farewell dinner though I’ve never learnt how to properly say goodbye 🙂
