Today is the second preparation day. Yesterday, you thought a bit about why you care about gratitude, what it means to you, why you would like to spend 40 days engaging with it, and perhaps you even wrote about what you would like to accomplish.
Today is the day you commit. This is where you tell the universe that you are serious. You are serious about what it takes to integrate higher levels of love, joy, peace, and good will into your life–through gratitude. You are serious about change, about becoming, about evolving into your best/highest self.
It is less important what words you use, how long you spend thinking about it, or how much you write.
It is more important to feel it, to go within to your own motivation, your own initiative, and claim the vision that you have for yourself of who you truly are, who you are remembering, who you are becoming. This is yours. Write your truth of commitment to your Self.
I declare, with great enthusiasm, excitement, and absolute joy of life, that I am committed to letting Life know how grateful I am for It. I commit to increasing my awareness and understanding of the presence of Life, which is already mine, and to expand my presence of Life through gratitude for It! It is my intention to maintain a constant awareness of the Life that animates me, which I experience through my consciousness– through my awareness. I commit to remembering as often as possible every day to be thankful for the Divine Grace that sustains me.
I am committed to contemplating the Guiding Thoughts for at least 5 minutes each day, and to writing my response.
I dedicate this Journey to Oneness and the Unity of All Life. May each step I take serve to uplift all of humanity; may my thoughts, words, feelings, and actions be a vehicle through which Divine Grace may enter the world to love and serve all life.
