Forsyth Park – day before my birthday and I’m grateful!

park april 9One of the prettiest places in Savannah – the Fountain in Forsyth Park!

Today we shared gratitude and appreciation for one another for taking the time to come out and BE GRATEFUL!

I’m so Grateful for taking the time to make this happen.  I love all of the stories about how all of us are feeling a surge of positive energy in our lives … and how we handle whatever challenges may come up during in our lives.   Knowing we are not alone really makes a big difference.  We are not alone.   We are one.

We are here to love … and so grateful that We do!

Looking forward to the next 22 weeks of Gratitude!

 Next week is Whitefield Square!

I am grateful for stepping away from the political discord that is driving us apart and sending Love & Compassion Vibes out whenever I see ANY political lawn signs – – seeing it from the eyes of spirit is much different.

Magic Passion Love & GratiDudes!

It just warms my heart that there are so many humans who are sharing positive energy!! Its more opportunity for more people to feel good!! It’s all about allowing humans to feel good – cuz if we feel good THEN we’ll care more .. CARE MORE TO TAKE CARE OF THE PLANET AND THE INHABITANTS ON THE PLANET!

As I continue on my 100 Day Reality Challenge – it is my intention to add to this blog every day — and some of these blogs I will share what cool people are doing …for example:

“Surrender”
By Brad Morris
http://www.facebook.com/l/fe2a7;www.TheGratiDudes.com

I used to drink and smoke to get me high;
But deep down inside I just wanted to die.
My heart was filled with sadness and anger;
When I looked in the mirror I was seeing a stranger.

No purpose, no plan, just observing from the side;
I was scared of my future, there was no hope inside.
I had no confidence in myself or humanity;
I thought we were screwed, excuse my profanity.

Many relate to the stories I share;
Havin life so tough, almost too tough to bare.
But something inside told me things would get better;
So I prayed to God and chose to surrender.

Like a light turning on in the darkness of night;
My heart opened up, my world became bright.
I could suddenly see what was infront of my face;
Everything started to fall into place.

Day-by-day things slowly improved;
The more I forgave, the more energy I moved.
Miracles appeared everwhere I turned;
Life began to make sense, with the more I learned.

Everyday I prayed for guidance from God;
I’d never prayed before, at first it felt odd.
I was amazed to see the answers come through;
As my life transformed, my faith in Him grew.

I was starting to realize who I really was;
I was more than a human, I am an extension of God.
When I had this revelation, I just wanted to share;
But people thought I was crazy, they just sat there and stared.

Why didn’t they believe me? I knew it was true.
I guess it was an indication there was more inner work to do…
So that’s what I did, inwards I went;
I learned to meditate, many hours I spent.

Little by little people started to believe,
As they witnessed some of the things I achieved.
They’d ask me, “Brad, what did you do?”
I’d tell them, I found God within, and you can too!

Do the same as I did, meditate and pray.
Be patient, accept yourself, take it day-by-day.
Just watch, you’ll see, things will definately shift;
The more you love yourself, your Spirit will lift.

You’ll rise, you’ll overcome the problems from your past;
And stick with it, because the results will last.
I know you’ll soar, you’re gonna fly;
You won’t need drugs, you’ll be naturally high.

Be positive, have faith, keep your mind on track;
Focus on your goals, don’t ever look back.
Forward is the only direction to face;
And take your time, this is not a race.

You’ve got your whole life, and the ones after this;
Which means there’s so much time to follow your bliss.
Accept where you are in this time and space;
With all that you’ve thought, this is the perfect place.

As long as your always taking baby steps forward;
Your Spirit’ll be happy, you’ll be rewarded.
So forget the past, let go of the dark ages;
We’re all born to lead, we’re meant to be Sages.

Stand up straight and choose to be strong;
There’s no screwing up, you can’t go wrong.
We all have the power to turn our darkness to light;
To have Peace within, you must stop the fight.

So choose so now, and do it here;
Surrender to God and have no fear.
From this point on, your life’ll get better and better;
Because you said YES and chose to surrender.

I’m happy for you and all the people you’ll empower;
As your life transforms like a blossoming flower.

body parts

A few weeks ago – I woke up with the birds singing and sun shining…walked outside and sat on a rock next to a little creek. Began to write in my journal – those morning words that can sometimes clear out your head from the dreams of the night and prepare you to LIVE your DREAMS for the day.

I began to look at my hands and my feet – parts of my body that I like and don’t like – won’t tell you which because it doesn’t really matter to you or me.

I know I want to love all of my body and so …like a TRICKYDAME – I find ways to trick myself to loving myself and low and behold you realize it’s no longer a trick and it’s real. I photographed what is real and it felt good.

Gratitude is Magic!

I am grateful – words can not express the gratitude I have for my choice to put my intentions to my passions which has allowed me to experience and create magic in all areas of my life all the while to be receiving more love from so many people including myself.
