Real life isn’t always going to be perfect or go our way, but the recurring acknowledgement of what is working in our lives can help us not only to survive but surmount our difficulties. — Sarah Ban Breathnach, author of Simple Abundance
I’m loving compiling and sharing these wonderful gratitude quotes with y’all.
Okay, I took a deep self-loving breath and here we go:
People come to Sue for…her perceptions and ability to see what might be holding a person back and his/her negative patterns, her sense of humor and enjoyment of games
People thank Sue for…Her creativity and great cooking and follow through and love
Sue is known for…Dedication and commitment to her friends and family, perseverance and the way she takes care of herself, for being competitive, for being very smart, her recent (like some years) ability to apologize after she has been prickly about something, for being quick witted.
What’s really easy for Sue includes…being smart, being able to stay on food plans she thinks will help her
What Sue downplays about her gifts includes…her ability to change from a self-destructing person to one who values herself and life
Sue forgets that she is a role model to many about self-care, about the ability to change, about looking at yourself honestly but also with love and compassion
From your posts this week, a sampling:
From Kim: I am grateful for spending the last hour doing the things that clear me and leave me feeling spacious ease around time. I have reviewed my schedule, gone through my emails, caught up with my friends and got my dinner plan in place.
From Barbara: asking for what I want and knowing I may not get it (that’s high-level gratitude! I know this from experience)
From Belinda: I am grateful for finding two ripe strawberries in my garden and enjoying eating them.
From Amanda: Snuggling in bed “late” on a Saturday morning with sleeping baby and husband
Hooray for gratitude shared!
