“An attitude of gratitude, opens the portals to a richer, more abundant life”

Last week, seemed to be a non stop flow of financial worries, disappointments, and unnecessary quarrels.  Everything came all at once, or I magnified something that’s resolvable, to something that seemed to be a reoccurrence.  I began to get these intense migraine headaches.  Taking painkillers to ease the pain and help to fall asleep.  I decided at that time, to continue to read anything positive, to give me hope, in the midst of the cloudy days.  Last night, as I laid in bed, reading The Motivation Manifesto (I know I’m still reading it), I came across the chapter on “The Path of Gratitude”.  It’s not like I haven’t read testimonials on how showing gratitude, even in the midst of troubled times, can bring about joy, but I’ve never really, truly, practiced it.  In the darkness of my room, with only the reading light, to shine on the pages of the book and the pounding of the rain falling, outside my window, I began to dig deep down inside, to find anything that I was thankful for.  I referenced all of my gratitude to things that occurred, last week.

I’m thankful for this alone time, to be able to read this book

I’m thankful for this quiet time, to be able to hear the voice within

I’m thankful for my mom who gave me money, when my account was overdrawn

I’m thankful for my friend Marie, who is a constant reminder of what a friendship, truly is

I’m thankful for Marie, for getting me out the house, and paying for my lunch, when I didn’t have the money to buy my own

I’m thankful for life, because I am blessed to be alive

I’m thankful for these days of struggle, to appreciate the better days, when they come

I’m thankful for the guy in my life, who messages me good morning when he wakes up, and good night, before he goes to bed

I’m thankful for the gift of knowledge, that allows me to read, learn, and stay informed

I’m thankful for the gift of drive, that allows me to go after anything, I put my mind to

I’m thankful to Oniyah’s father, for opening up doors of opportunity for me

I’m thankful that he and I can argue and talk to one another, less than 24 hours later

I’m thankful for my daughter, who comes to me and gives me a hug, and reminds me of what unconditional love, truly is

I became so overwhelmed with emotion.  Quickly, any pain I felt, went away, allowing the flow of love and appreciation, to bring itself in.  I began to cry and couldn’t stop.  The feeling kept me awake till the early morning hours.  It’s unlike any feeling I’ve felt in a while.  It truly showed me how blessed I am.  It made me realize that when you move into a direction, of finding your personal freedom, the universe, truly does work in your favor.  Your vision becomes clearer, hurdles seem to be less strenuous, negative people disappear, making room for genuine individuals.  I now understand the power of gratitude and how it can transform an individual into truly being appreciative of the blessings, no matter how small, it may be.



On my blog, “Pieces of Patty”, I wrote about synchronicity and I how it’s been so strong, since I had my daughter.  The frequency level has been its’s strongest, this year and I rely on numbers and signs to lead me to the direction, for which I shall go.  Today, I saw 555, at 5:55.  I don’t usually see that number.  I often see 111, 1111, 222, so I decided to look it up, to get a better understanding, of its meaning.

“Angel Number 555 tells of significant and necessary changes happening in your life that have been divinely inspired and guided.  These changes will bring about long-awaited circumstances and results and will fully align you with your true divine life purpose and soul mission”

I’ve learned to understand the importance of change and that we all need it, to bring about growth to carry us through our journey, in life.  Lately, I’ve been reevaluating my circle, whether it be friends, family, and associates.  For the most part, I’m very content, with the people in my life, but there are some people, that I truly feel, need to either be held at arms length, or removed entirely.  I have so much respect and admiration and love for those that are closest to me.  But I realize that some aren’t capable of doing the same.  And realizing this hurts.  I’m a very sensitive person, though my outside appearance and outspoken ways, may say differently.  When I feel like I can’t trust you, or your love for me isn’t genuine, I begin to remove myself.  Seeing 555, made me realize that it was once again, time to do some cleaning, and reevaluating.  It’s either I accept people for who they are, or tell them, they have served their purpose and go our separate ways.  I’m not one, to stay in unhealthy relationships, for long.  My happiness means so much to me, that I’m willing to disconnect myself from anyone or anything, that threatens to take it away.

“Angel Number 555 is a message from your angels that it is time to let go of the old that is no longer positively serving you.  Trust that they will be replaced with better.  Release old doubts, fears and perceived obstacles, and if feeling any fears or confusion, ask for support and guidance from your angels.  Know your angels are with you, always”

Your vibe attracts your tribe, and we may not realize that though we may not behave in the same manner, their vibrations affect you too.  If my true divine purpose in life, is to be surrounded by those that are moving in the same wavelength as me, I’m more than willing to make it happen.  It took me a long time to leave an unhealthy relationship, which I didn’t know I would have the strength to do, but I did it, but I’m much happier than I’ve ever been.  You have to truly believe the you are deserving of all good things.  It’s not given to a select few, but to EVERYONE.  It doesn’t matter what you may have done in the past.  I always felt like good things didn’t happen to me, because I was being punished for things I did in the past.  So not true!  It’s until I began to truly love myself, is when I realize that I’m worthy and deserving of love.  The fear of being alone has kept so many of us stagnant in unhealthy situations.  I find my greatest strength in silence.  God talks to me constantly, in silence.  Allow yourself to be open and willing to love yourself more than you are willing to love anyone else.  Let go of the illusion of fear, and allow the angels to guide you.
