How often do you truly express gratitude for everything you have in your life?
The sheer act of expressing gratitude sends out a signal to the Universe to send you more things to be grateful for.
Embracing gratitude not only helps you focus on the here & now, but it also makes you appreciative of all you do have in your life right now.
We spend so much time wanting & wishing.
Well, how about just being thankful & grateful for today & what was in our life today.
Instead of wasting energy complaining about what you do not have, spend that exact same energy on what is currently in your life that you are appreciative for.
If you have a thought that is leading to lackful thinking or a complaint, stop yourself in your tracks & replace it with a thought that is appreciative, grateful, or thankful.
The more appreciative you are, the more you attract that positive flow into your life.
If you don't believe me, just try it for a couple of days.
I guarantee you will at least feel a little lighter, less weighed down by all those negative thoughts.
Here is something else you can try.
Keep a gratitude journal. I do this myself. I write 10 things in mine each night before bed. Then I write out some affirmations. I essentially fill up the whole page each night. Sometimes I have to scribble in the sides to have room for everything I want to say to myself.
If 10 things seem like too many, write 5 things you are grateful for. Try to list different things each day.
The point is you are acknowledging these things you are grateful for each day.

Instead of picking out a group of people to whom our kids can turn to when they are in trouble, such as police officers, we need to simply & openly teach children how to know where to turn.
They have to be trained to use their own intuition about people & use it in conjunction with the information that we have provided to them.
Predators can easily gain the trust of a child, instill in them a feeling of security, & often lead them astray by convincing them that they are mature enough to make their own decisions.
That is why we need to teach children, starting from a very early age, the vitally important information to help them take the power away from the predator.
*Children need to be aware that predators can & will approach them in broad daylight, & on the internet, anywhere at anytime.
If we can instill in our children the need to be completely aware of their surroundings on a much higher level than we generally do, then it's a start.
If we let children know at a young age that people older than them cannot always be trusted, that someone may try to talk to them about things like secrets & special friendships & that children need to tell on them, then we are making some progress. If we explain openly & honestly that there is nobody that can be crossed off the list of people to follow the rules about, then we might just get through to them.
Kids are resilient. They are smarter than we think. Giving them the tools to protect themselves at an early age is wise because it will come naturally to them as just another lesson in life.
I want to help you, as parents, educate yourselves & your children about these predators.
Without education, we will fail our children.
