31 Days: Gratitude for Blogging


Blogging has increased my appreciation of and connection to my world. 

And I'm not talking about the social media world....

I'm talking about my world.  

I notice the beauty around me so much more. I notice details

I notice how things connect and fit and flow
I feel so much more present and alive just through this process 
of expressing my creativity.

I love the process of making things...
the excitement of generating ideas ~ "imagineering"! 
...the joy of carrying out that idea! 


I love how the creative right brain and logical left brain 
merge 
as I must be attuned to breaking down each step along the way to explain a project in an article or post.



I LoVe taking photos as part of the creative process. 
Photography and formatting for the blog can be more time consuming than making the projects, but the result is highly satisfying to me. 

Bringing it all together weaves a symphony of the creative and logical sides of my brain in an oh-so-satisfying way!

Sharing it with YOU, making connections, and hearing your feedback is icing on the cake!

Of course, maintaining a balance with blogging is also really important in order to be present in all areas of your life. Some weeks I do better than others. How about you?

...

I am grateful for the opportunity blogging gives me to use both my creative and logical-linear capacities.

I am thankful that in using my talents and gifts, my appreciation for the beauty around me grows.

I'm grateful for the feedback, friendship and encouragement you give me.







How deeply might your life be enriched  
after practicing 31 Days of Gratitude?

I couldn't agree more Christina!
As I read what you wrote I started to think about how many times since I started blogging, the things I've learnt (and still do!) by doing so have helped me in some other areas and aspects of my life. I wasn't a disorganized person to begin with, but having a blog schedule made me realize how much efficient one can be and I have applied that to work and study with remarkable good results. It is amazing (and it's bad that I say so myself, but still) how much my photography skills have improved. I no longer rush into it, I really try to think of the composition and visualize the final outcome beforehand and now I'm 100 times happier with my shots than ever before.
There's so much possitive that can be said about blogging and how much it can affect our lives in a good way that a comment just isn't enough! Thanks a lot for sharing your thoughts on this, it makes me happy that someone else out there fells quite the same about it. xx

Christina, this is such a great post. I'm basically a shy person, so blogging has helped somewhat in that area. I just like to connect with people who have similar interests.
I'm thankful for you and your linky parties!

Thank you for sharing what you love with me and the world. I look forward to your blog in my usually busy busy day. Your seemingly unending ability to create inspires me and the gratitude practice has been sooo helpful for me this week in particular.

Being you really can change the world. :)
