Been thinking a lot lately about gratitude, and how difficult it seems to be for us to express that. I know I've had a lot of problems doing lately. And maybe that's because of the situation and place that we are in life? Or is it just that we're not taught to express it

Anyway, I decided to change that and do an experiment to see if I can Re:Program my Brain to make it come naturally. So here's how I'm going to do it: Every day when I write in my journal I add post where I put the thing I have felt gratitude for that day. It's not necessary the big things, it can be a small thing, but just put it out there makes me have a feeling of completion.

I will also practice it when I met friends and family, just to let them know that I'm grateful for having them in my life. One day, they may take up the Gratitude Routine (I call it that) and they may change their lives and others.

So what are YOU grateful for and/or want to express gratitude for today

During the years I have been creative, maybe to a point where my brain never rested just to get all that creativity down. Maybe it was music, or ways to make work better and easier. But the general theme is that my mind never rested, until three years ago when I gave in to it, and let my brain rest. In fact I let my brain rest until 10 months ago, when I got my cat Esther. She opened me up, and maybe only two weeks after I got her my creativity started to bloom again.

The rest was probably necessary for my brain to recover and make me want to be creative again. From the outside it doesn't show but there is a change going on, and I'm not sure where I will finally land this time. I'll let you know when I know!

I hope that I could live like this! :)

I used to summarize my year at this time of the year, just to see what I had accomplished but for now, I'm settling for just taking notes of the year to come instead.

So what's in it?

Next year it's an election year here in Sweden, although to me it seems that it just was one. Like many with me, we hope that there will be a change, not so much politically as in the attitude in the political establishment. my opinion is that the political establishment has totally lost contact with how normal people have it, and they're making decisions that have no ground, in reality, most of the times. And the sad truth is that we probably will NOT see any changes happening. So what can we do?

Be The Change!

It might seem strange but we can't ask for a change to happen, we need to be the change ourselves. Because if WE don't want to change how can we ask THEM to change? Look within and take notes on how you can change, and improve before you demand changes of others. It's not easy to really examine how you can change, to make to change happen around you.

As I previously already discussed here, I'm not making any new years promises, so that option is out. And I suggest you do the same, think instead of how YOU can change to BE the Change!

Lets' own the change and Be IT!

Good Bye 2017 and Welcome 2018 The Year Of The Change
