I have asked a few people what does it mean to them. Strangely enough it has a completely different meaning to each individual. This is what I know about gratitude…
IT’S A MAGNET FOR MIRACLES.
It’s a supernatural tool that once found will propel you and others into a space beaming with new revelations.
1. In every circumstance look for the gratitude
2. That becomes a habit
3. Habit begins to retrain the brain
4. Brain creates happy hormones (dopamine)
5. Pass on the happiness to others
Practice it. Create a GRATITUDE jar. I have noticed it changes the colours I wear, my posture, my smile, the lines on my face.
I sense people with GRATITUDE. They walk into a room and instantly the vibe shifts. It flows from them, just like dark energy does. It’s light to carry and will energise the owner. Seek it. Speak it.
So as I dig deeper into the mixed world of gratitude I uncover something about myself that leaves me glum. I realise I project so much love and gratitude for others and outward things that I never stopped to be grateful for myself.
I’m so critical of me. Fat arms, no dedication and discipline for exercise, swear too much, drink too much, stress too much, impatient and the list goes on. I struggle to believe a compliment and with all I have overcome and achieved (bucket loads) I have never stopped to think sh&$ you are brave.
So in this moment with you here, I acknowledge and proudly say to myself. I’m grateful for you Sonya.

This Tuesday, some of our very lucky staff members got to spend the day “working” on the set of the Firefighters Calendar Australia shoot for next years calendar!
Starting the day bright and early we had to make our way to Mount Nathan to meet some firefighters for the Firefighters Calendar Australia shoot… We thought we reached our destination! Oops! We ended up in someone’s house before realising that we were in the wrong spot!
Not to worry, the day was soon saved when we re-grouped and it wasn’t all bad… we walked onto the set to find this:
Well 2015 has been kind to me personally and to our Eco Tan team.
I really hope our loyal customers have blossomed and thrived in 2015. Just a few quick highlights!
At the age of 49 my family and I moved in our first house that we built. To begin with we had a small pool ? In the extreme heat of QLD! Given this, we are going to truly enjoy our first summer in 10 years. This house was on my vision board for 8 years.
Personal Highlights in 2015
After being a single mum for the past 7 years, to now living with Gary (who has been in our lives for the last 5 years) the compromise has been interesting! Poor bastard doesn’t know what all the screaming is about. We scream when we are excited, sad, mad whatever. We love noise. That’s why we built him a man room with a dirty big telly.
