Thanksgiving Gratitude: Be Grateful for Who You Are Right Now

To all the single women out there reading this post:

Thanksgiving GratitudeHas anyone told you lately that you are really wonderful? Do you know that about yourself? It’s completely true. From the top of your head to the tip of your toes. Every single drop of your being is magnificent. Let me say it once more:

You are wonderful!

So, what’s your reaction to that? Did you push the idea away, thinking “That’s not really true”? Or could you soak in the praise, knowing how valid that description of you is?

As your dating coach, I sure hope your reaction was the second one!

Thanksgiving Gratitude – Serve It Up!

This Thanksgiving I am spending time giving serious thought to what I am grateful for in my life. While I do feel gratitude for some things, this year I am making a bigger effort to look at more parts of my life. Last week I focused on the people who surround me. This week, I decided it was time to focus on what I’m grateful about me.

Forget that Humble Pie When it Comes to Thanksgiving Gratitude

Whether you believe it or not, you are special – a unique human being with a personality as individual as a snowflake. You share your presence with those around you, have your own way of looking at things, and make a contribution to the planet. You may be a full time mom, a grandmother, an aunt or sister, a career woman, a volunteer, a good friend, an assistant. Perhaps you are good at math or wonderfully creative.

And you have special gifts to make a man happy too. Maybe it’s the way you whisper a man’s name, text or email, support his vision, remind him of appointments, cook delectable meals, massage his shoulders, laugh at his jokes, help him feel masculine, share your love or make him smile. So whether or not you are in a relationship – you have much to offer.

Appreciate Yourself Just as You Are

Right now, please take just one minute to appreciate the amazing woman you are, just as you are right now. In this moment, celebrate what you have achieved and what you bring to the party of life. Breathe in the glory of your being, humanness and spirit. You are made with God’s thumb print and deserve to love and appreciate yourself like no other.

Self Love is the Basis of All Love

As I often say to my dating coaching clients, self love is the basis for all love. So, this Thanksgiving holiday as you scurry in the kitchen to prepare a big meal, or go to another home and bring a special dish, please take time out to remember to give thanks for who you are today. When you learn how to treat yourself right, others follow in your footsteps.

I Appreciate You!

And I’m sure there are so many others who do as well. But most importantly, take note of yourself. Love yourself. Be grateful for everything you have right now, all that is going right and for all the lessons you’ve learned so far.

When you take the time to appreciate yourself, even if it’s just for a few moments, you allow your energy to shimmer and shine. You start to sparkle with self love and become so much more magnetic. Your power to attract skyrockets. And you’ll feel happier and more optimistic about what is still to come

Have a very Happy Thanksgiving Holiday

Wishing you love,

Thanksgiving Gratitude



Dating Over 40: Arielle Ford Adds Gratitude to Law of Attraction Work

I’m still thinking about some of the wonderful speakers I heard during the Soulmate Summit. One in particular stands out – Arielle Ford. She is the author of  The Soulmate Secret: Manifest the Love of Your Life with the Law of Attraction.

The Soulmate Secret

For me, one of the most interesting things I learned was how many other women and dating coaches used the Law of Attraction (LOA), like I did, to when dating over 40 to find love.  But Arielle had a twist to the usual format that you hear.

Typically, with LOA, you get specific with what you want. I have my dating coaching clients think about the qualities they are looking for in a man such as intelligent, honest, affectionate, generous in spirit, athletic, healthy, etc. Then I ask women dating over 40 or dating after divorce about the quality of the relationship they desire. Is their relationship with the right man easy, fun, respectful, comfortable, spontaneous, loving, soulful, etc.?

Next, the process requires determining the end result which is how you want to FEEL. Because, it is the emotional end result that creates the vibration, working like a beacon to call in the one you want. You do this by matching the vibration of what you want so that “like attracts like”.  That is the very essence of how LOA works. Emotions are powerful energy generators and all energy has a pattern or in other words, a vibration!

So, to attract love, you must spend time FEELING what it will be like. But you have to FEEL it right now, today, as if its already happening. As if its REAL. This is exactly what I did and I can tell you that the process did work. 

Arielle added one more step. And this makes so much sense but I never did this part. Arielle has you imagine how grateful you are for finding the love you want. Express your gratitude to the Universe, God or powers that be in the moment you imagine being with the right man for you. You could say a simple “Thank you” or extend your statement to more fully express your gratefulness.

What is so smart about adding this step is that it further promotes your belief that what you are imagining IS TRUE. So true, that you are already grateful! How’s that for elevating your vibration? That will do it. It deepens the feeling and makes the emotions more real. Very savvy Arielle. And taken from many spiritual practices. The idea of expressing gratitude for all that you have is basic to most religions and spiritual practices.

When you choose to work with me as your dating coach and startpracticing the Law of Attraction to MANifest your mate, I highly recommend closing as Arielle does with a bit of gratitude. Whatever way you want to do this is fine. Let’s see if that speeds things up. But even if it doesn’t, you can never go wrong feeling grateful for all that you  have and all the good that is coming your way.
