I attempted going on a 7 day mental cleanse on Thursday March 1st, 2012. For this mental cleanse I could only think positively, and if I did have a negative thought, I would have to erase the thought and replace it with something positive immediately. If I failed I would have to restart the cleanse for another 7 days. Since starting:
-My dishwasher broke and sounded like a chain saw was let loose in it
-My 5 year old car that has never broken down died in Stanley Park in the dark while I was parked illegally
-My dog peed all over my bed including my pillows, blanket, pyjamas, and copy of dog weekly. I am not sure how he managed to pee everywhere on my bed. He has never done this before.
Let's just say I had to keep restarting my cleanse. It then dawned on me I am always looking to the future for happiness and never appreciate the moments I have RIGHT NOW! I am so lucky to have all the things I have in my life. And rather than writing down the things I am grateful for I have started taking pictures. So from today I am going to start a 365 day challenge to take a photo of what I am grateful for every single day!
COZ LIFE IS FREAKIN AMAZING!
