gratitude wednesday 5/21

It’s sunny, warming up again, and I am so so so so grateful that the ceiling fans will be installed on Friday. I am committed to the vision that these fans will change my life and increase my comfort. And so it is!

I’m grateful for what looks like a new client — an executive coach — with a slate of projects that will be fun. And for our lovely lunch in a restaurant on Solano in Albany. And for the invitation to her monthly full-moon party Saturday night. Nice!

I’m grateful for my leisure walk up and down Solano. A few minutes window shopping in Matsu, a Japanese bedding and tchotchkes store. Nice gift to myself; a little leisure.

I’m grateful for my Tuesday market day. Lhasa Karnak for herbs. The farmer’s market for cherries, apricots and veggies. More fresh veggies out of the garden here. Abundance. Delicious abundance.

I’m grateful for knowing whom I do not want to have as a coaching client. I did a sample session with a woman yesterday and it is clear that she is not coachable. Bless her heart. I’m glad to know this and not to chase after clientele who are not right for my practice. Who are not accountble. Who are mired in addictions.

I’m grateful for my spiritual practices and for cuddling into bed and settling down to my rest with a smile on my face and peace in my heart. Blessed be.

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.
