gratitude wednesday 8/27

I am a grateful woman. I am blessed with creativity and a love for beauty that I can see, hear, smell and taste.

I am grateful that my dream this morning was only a dream. In this dream, I was getting loaded in my hula class, popping pain pills (like I used to). So loaded that I didn’t participate in class. And in this class my teacher got disgusted with the unpreparedness of the students and he too walked out and stood in the rain for the rest of the class time. When I walked back in everyone was streaming out and I was told that kumu had dismissed us all and was very disappointed in us. I am so grateful that I am clean and sober and present and that I do much of what I set out to do these days; certainly a million times more than I did when I was using. I haven’t had a dream like that in a long time. Wow. Relieved when I awoke, for sure.

I am grateful for finally getting the tires rotated on my car. And grateful that it only took a few minutes. $15; one task handled. I think I moved that item on my calendar for about two months; glad I got it done.

I am grateful that I took the time to send Kumu a birthday note by email. And that I told him about doing hula in the soda aisle at Berkeley Bowl yesterday with a classmate who happened to be there. Funny-looking I’m sure; I wasn’t going to let the opportunity go by to review the steps and movements I had forgotten. Glad Robin was put in my path yesterday; another lovely coincidence. [Coincidence—a remarkable concurrence of events or circumstances without apparent causal connection. Apparent being an important word here. I don’t need to be able to see the connection to know it exists.]

I’m grateful for surviving a slow period in my businesses. Summer’s ending. Time to gear up again is just around the corner. And I am kinda sorta enjoying this time.

I’m grateful for bills paid and knowing what’s up with my finances.

I am so incredibly grateful that my witch sisters said they would accompany me when I visit Rose and one maybe two are actually available this weekend. What a gift! What a healing gift.

I am blessed. All is well. All is well. All is well.

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.
