gratitude friday 1/25

It’s important to acknowledge how grateful I am, to make fleeting thoughts concrete, to own spiritual progress.

I am grateful to reframe an old guilt as an opportunity. Because, no matter what my thoughts were that led me to take the action I did, I look back and see that my what happened led to good good good. Wow. How nice to get to a lighter place about the past.

I am enjoying coaching my new client. Her enthusiasm lights me up as well.

I am in a place of acceptance today. No longer fighting or judging what is. No longer punishing myself for the state of my health. Not quite loving the dis-ease, yet. But not hating it either. Open to the teaching.

I am so grateful for hula. For skills being acquired. For the community.

I am grateful to make plans to socialize with family. Arranged big dinner out for Rose’s 21st. Invited B&A for dinner for her birthday in March. And invited Barbara for lunch next week so I can hear all about her trip to Israel and about our family there. Unusual for me, new behavior, to be the planner and to be calendar-aware. Feels pretty good.

I am grateful for getting out among people. How precious it feels after being housebound so long.

I am grateful. I am healthy, vibrant, alive. Life is abundant. Business is good. God is everywhere. I am whole, perfect and complete and so is everyone I meet. And so it is.

I’m a barely tamed hippie, sage, seasoned, sarcastic (not all the time any more, but still). I’m a mom, a daughter, sister, a neighbor, and a friend. I’ve been on this meandering journey — like you, probably — seeking a better connection to and experience of peace, harmony, and fun in every bit of life. I’m single, quite good at it, and mostly love it. I’m here for the conversations I get to have with you, which these days center on exploring the mystery and beauty of life, work, health, aging, and creative expression.
