Sparks Of Creativity And The Gratitude Game – Day 59 of The Pollyanna Plan

Day 59, Reason 59: Today I am thankful for The Gratitude Game, which has helped to rekindle my creativity.

After a better night’s sleep, the world seems a much brighter, happier place today. I feel refreshed, recharged and ready to continue on my journey towards good health and happy, joyful days.

Last night, I came across a blog post, entitled “Gratitude’s Got Game” by Jennifer Flint – The Aura Reader. It describes an exercise designed to stimulate the Law of Attraction, which really inspired me. So, today, I decided to give it a go.

As I went about my morning, I made a conscious decision to give thanks (out loud) to the items I was using. It sounds a little crazy (or a lot crazy,) I know, but once I started, it really helped to clear away the cobwebs of yesterday.

I began by thanking my toothbrush for keeping my teeth clean and healthy. Next, I thanked the safe, clean water I drink and wash with. Then, my warm, comfy bed, my wardrobe full of clothes and the nourishing food I eat.  I could continue, but I’m sure you get the picture. I genuinely felt extremely grateful for all the inanimate objects in my life and it was the perfect way to start the day.

As my mood continued to lift and soar, I turned my attention to an item I’m in the middle of making to sell in my online shop. I’ve been meaning to finish it for a while, but I haven’t felt well enough. When I’m unwell, it feels like my creativity drains away, but this morning, buoyed up by the Gratitude Game and with my health improved slightly, I set to work.

I also had the energy to sort through a big box, kindly given to me by a family friend when she moved abroad, and was amazed to find it stuffed full of craft goodies. I discovered beautiful beads, jewels, sequins, ribbons and materials and I even found the perfect fabric to finish off my item. As I delved into this box full of treasures, picking up and admiring all the beautiful items, I felt my creativity begin to spark and rekindle. I imagined all the wonderful things I could create and feel excited and eager to get started.

    I’m very happy to hear that my little gratitude game was helpful to someone, and I’m very interested in the positivity project this blogger has started. It’s called the Pollyanna Plan (one of my favorite books from childhood), and part of the yearlong goal is a fundraiser for children, which seems like a worthy cause if ever there was one. Have a look if you get a chance! 🙂
