To welcome something takes an openness: an open heart, spirit, arms, mind, etc. To sincerely welcome something also includes a good dose of enthusiasm.
What we focus on grows. What are you welcoming and what would you like to welcome in if you could not hold yourself back? Hmm…?
Ready, set, write!
My entry tonight may look like this:
I welcome into my life right now:
2. Opportunities to write and get paid for my writing.
3. New friends!
4. Freedom to live life on my terms
5. Abundance: good food, good relationships, good projects, good financial prospects
Have a blessed evening, friends.
Thinking of the many blessings in our life is a guaranteed feel-good activity. Keeping a gratitude journal helps us to focus on what we are thankful for on a more regular and consistent basis.
Today, this is what my gratitude list would look like:
I am thankful for:
Your turn-what are you grateful for today?
Note: a nice book that I have owned for many years to keep a gratitude journal is The Simple Abundance of Gratitude by Sarah Ban Breathnach. At the start of the book she has a list of 150 often overlooked blessings. There is plenty of room for each day of the year to write down what you are thankful for. I started mine back in 1998 and keep adding entries each year in the side margins or wherever I can find the space. It is fun to reflect back on the richness of my blessed life during its many varied stages and experiences.
Have a blessed day. I am thankful for all of you, dear Warm Milk Journal readers!

Here at the Warm Milk Journal we aspire to live the most fulfilling lives by day and sleep restfully at night.
I just love the Fall season and I think this season is the perfect time to work on these goals. As a kid, Fall was about new fresh beginnings: a new school year, new school supplies, new clothes, a new age (I am a September birthday).
As an adult I can appreciate so much more about this season such as:
As we fall back an hour this weekend, let’s enjoy the abundance this marvelous season has to offer us.
