Every day as soon as I put my feet on the floor I recite my gratitude’s. I recite “I am truly grateful for _______ because______” finishing with a thank you. I do this every morning since I bought the book “Magic from Rhonda Byrne”. Also, when I go for my walks or driving in my car I love reciting my blessings. It makes me feel appreciated it for the little things I have.
I have been teaching my granddaughters to be grateful and they sound adorable when they recite their gratitude. One of them was grateful for having an ice cream cone and the other was grateful for receiving a toy.
When I feel depressed, it gets a little more difficult because my head begins to spin and I can’t find the right words. However, I keep reciting my gratitude’s until I begin to feel better.

It bothers me when someone meddles in my life thinking they know everything. They seem to be their sole purpose in their lives. I’m sure each family knows someone who loves to do things like this. It seems they’re not happy with their lives and they need to stick their noses in somebody business. My mother uses to say that such persons are “those who don’t eat and they don’t let anyone else eat”. I didn’t understand the quote until later on. However, I will not allow them to dictate my life.

Since I stop being on social media it has been fantastic. I’m relax and enjoying other things. I get tempted to peak on my phone or computer once in a while. However, I will get used to it and it won’t control my life. It was causing emotional stress and it wasn’t fun anymore. I’ve time to write daily filing up pages in my journal with positive thinking and working on my stories. I’m sure I will be back and then I will eliminate those friends and family and they would not have control of me.
Plus, I’ve begin with my spring cleaning and planning to start planting in my garden. Taking this break has helped with my depression and also with my type 2 diabetes. I don’t feel overwhelmed. I didn’t realize how much energy I’ve waste with social media. I’m listening to more music, reading more than usual, and writing every day. I can’t believe I’m walking and feel more relaxed. I know everything in life has a limit and I was overboard.
I’ve to let go what makes me feel unhappy like losing my mother years ago plus not having the help of my siblings with our dad. Yes, I need to let it go and heal my soul.
