A-Z Blogging Challenge: KISS Gratitude

Let’s KISS away this  4th A-Z blogging challenge with a little gratitude.

First up we have the letter A – and Arlee Bird, founder of the A-Z Blogging Challenge.

Thank you Arlee.  I stumbled upon your A-Z just after I’d started blogging again.  It seemed like a good idea to participate, to give me an incentive to write every day and you were a dedicated visitor, reader and commenter.  There have been times when I’ve felt you were the ONLY reader – other than my mother.   So thank you Arlee.

I’ll post a little gratitude everyday except Sunday – following the letters of the alphabet sequentially.  There’s nothing like a little gratitude to make you feel better deep inside.   You know the place I mean…it’s the same place where you feel the smile.   Try it – smiling that is – and see if you can locate the place inside your being where you feel that smile, and feel the powerful, happy energy radiate outward from there into the world.

Yeah, I like gratitude and smiling.  Thanks Arlee.

Here’s an audio track for you to listen to while you travel the A-Z

    Love the idea of posting gratitude each day for the blogging challenge. It’s something that hadn’t crossed my mind. Looking forward to visiting throughout the month to see what all you are thankful for.

      Hi Amanda – I was stuck for a theme and need something really straight-forward and simple because I have a final project for school due on the 15th! Not a good time to A-Z!

    Thank you, Alison. I guess a thank-you is valid even if it comes late.

  • Leeks ‘N’ Lentils
      Oh Yeah! The simplicity of this dish allows the flavours of the leeks and shiitake mushrooms to blend beautifully. It needs nothing more than salt and freshly ground pepper.  I thought about adding tumeric or fresh herbs, but loved…Read more ›
  • Today’s Whole Foods+
    Just like you, I used to cringe at the idea of  meal replacement shakes.   If anyone suggested them to me, I’d wrinkle my nose in disgust and say: “I only eat whole foods.” I only ate whole foods till I…Read more ›
  • Bean-stuffed Baked Squash
      Since releasing 55 pounds of toxic fat with my cleanse and fat-release system I’ve been taking a different approach to whole foods meals.  Where I used to be a big pasta eater, it’s pretty much been eliminated from my diet.…Read more ›
