2018 Week 20: Moment Clicks

download

Your task for Week 20 of a Lighter More Loving You is to take MOMENT CLICKS!

This week take 5 photos of MOMENTS of your life that you may have missed if you hadn’t been given this assignment! 

A flower, sunset, spider web, clean sink, muddy shoes, giant pile of laundry!

Whatever the five are, is up to you.  YOU are living YOUR life.

I could be helpful and say take photos of…

  • things that bring you joy
  • things you find beautiful
  • things that bug you
  • people or animals you love
  • your favorite room in your house
  • funny things
  • sad things
  • and on and on

…but I’m not going to, though you are welcome to use those as a spring-board.

Truly, just take a quick photo of a moment you may have missed if you hadn’t been asked to take 5 photos this week of your life! 

Share your photos with us!

Cheering You on to a Whole MOMENT NOTICING Heart,

Barbara

Checking In for Week Eight of a Lighter More Loving You!

Your Task this week was to WRITE DOWN YOUR TREASURES.  How is it going?  Are you thinking about getting that journal, about writing your treasures down or are you doing it?

There is so much power in BEING GRATEFUL.  Type THE POWER OF GRATITUDE in your search engine and read or be reminded of the power of thankfulness.  There are even scientific studies that have proven that GRATITUDE can:

  • open the door to more relationships
  • improve physical health
  • improve psychological health
  • enhance empathy and reduce aggression
  • help people sleep better
  • improve self-esteem
  • improve mental strength

HAPPINESS, JOY, CONTENTMENT and PEACE are also byproducts of Gratitude.

So many of us are searching for more happiness, joy, contentment, and peace!  We make it so complicated when all we need is to be aware of our TREASURES and note them!

Next to Forgiveness, Gratitude is your most powerful agent to a Lighter More Loving You!

Rallying You to a Whole Documented Treasures Heart,

2018 Week Eight: Write Down Your Treasures

images (3)

Your task for Week Eight of a Lighter More Loving You is to Write Down Your Treasures!

I love to journal.  It hasn’t always been that way. I’d resolve to journal everyday and 2 weeks later, lots of blank pages!  I didn’t like the thought of writing down my crazy mind, especially with the fear of someone reading it.  BUT writing down MY TREASURES was one of the ways I became a regular journaler and sold on the therapeutic powers of writing.

What are “YOUR TREASURES”?  

Nothing you’ve not heard before.  YOUR TREASURES are what you are grateful for.

Search for signs of My Loving Presence as you journey along the path of life.  Look for the little pleasures I have strewn alongside your pathway–sometimes in surprising places–and thank Me for each one.  Your thankfulness will keep you close to Me and help you find Joy in your journey.  –Sarah Young, Jesus Always Devotional

PLEASURES in this quote turned to TREASURES for me:

Look for the little TREASURES strewn alongside your pathway…and give thanks for each one.

Each day I pen in my journal,  “Grateful for these Treasures on my Path…“.

Did you keep a Gratitude Journal in the past but the practice has fallen away?  Encouraging you to return to that practice!

Do you do this but only in prayer or silent, spoken words?

Have you thought about doing this but never got around to it?

Encouraging you to treat yourself to a fun shopping trip to find a journal that you absolutely love…and a new pen!

  • Write down 3-5 “treasures” each day.  If this is all the journal keeping you ever do, you will find it transformative.  

  • Try to write 3-5 DIFFERENT TREASURES each day.  Expand how you see things!

  • Keep your numbers running and see if you can get to a certain number by the end of the year…i.e. 500 Treasures.

  • Write down the things you might not see as TREASURES and find the lesson or piece of wisdom you gained from it. 

This week WRITE OUT YOUR TREASURES!

Rallying You to a Whole Treasure Seeking Heart,

Barbara
