Sunday, January 03, 2010 - This Week's 'Moment of Gratitude' and THREE giveaways!

Living in Gratitude

On Sunday's, 'Today's Moment of Inspiration' becomes the weekly 'Moment of Gratitude'. While I do still live in Gratitude each and everyday, I decided to change this feature to a weekly to allow a full week of Inspirational messages and focused breathing meditations. New Year/New Gratitude! Can't wait for all the new opportunities that 2010 will present to me to be grateful for!

This week, I am grateful for:

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - For being blessed with the health to usher in a New Year with the ones I love by my side! Casa de Butterfly was filled with gratitude to be able to ring in 2010 with hope, laughter, music and optimism! I hope you all had a safe New Years Eve, a happy New Year's Day and that each and every one of you are blessed with the best that 2010 has to offer! How did you ring in the New Year? What, if any, are your resolutions this year?

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - I am grateful for Ascending Butterfly's wonderful sponsors who are helping to ring in this New Year with GREAT giveaways!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - I'm also grateful for Ascending Butterfly's wonderful readers. Many readers missed the gratitude feature, and we are happy to say it's back! And even more tickled that you all noticed! :-)

What are you grateful for today? I'd love for you to write in and share what you are grateful for this week. The more you say it, the more you speak it, and the more you live in gratitude, the more you will find reasons to be grateful for. So join me on this journey of gratitude and inspiration. And you can post here daily (even though my list will be posted weekly).

Remember, attitude really does determine altitude.

Make sure your entry or your profile have your email address!

Just a helpful Reminder: How to Follow Using Google Friends Connect:

Please look to the upper right hand side, where the follower pictures are. (Note the number of followers before you start this process)

1) press the follow button - the google pop up wizard will open, this is not an ad and your pop up blocker will not block it

2) tick the option that reads 'follow this blog publicly' once that button is selected, hit follow again - it should now read 'you are now following'

3) if the follower count went up you know you did it succesfully, if your profile has a picture, that picture will be the first one on the left side. If your profile doesn't have one, it should still be searchable on the members list. (Remember, following a blog, does NOT subscribe you to receive emails, you have to subscribe separately to do that, you will not receive emails for following)
