I am growing in my ability to bring focus to the things that I am grateful for. I look forward to learning from others.
Today I can live more gratefully than yesterday, by remembering to do it ! This website helps gratitude to stay in my awareness.
I put a sign on my wall that says, “Remember to be grateful.”. It sounds so simple, but this visual reminder helps a lot
Good Morning Everybody,
I have finally gotten my computer to allow me to enter, “The Gratitude Lounge,” again.
I am grateful for my talents: art and poetry. I am grateful for a safe and quiet apartment, and I am grateful for the many daylight hours of June .
Have a nive day!
Well, I have a lot to offer to the world. I am an artist, a poet and a very good listener.
The very first thing that comes to mind, is children’s art, ; especially the younger ones. Their capacity to be in the moment and use colors, shapes, “wrong” perspective, floating objects or people. Purple trees. Green faces. Wild objects in non-matching scale. That art exudes joy.
I like Richard Rohr’s way of looking at growth. Thank you.
Yes, it is a good thing. I actually had a neurologist tell me that it initiates a change in the brain! Amazing how that can happen. I call it “Half-smile.”
P.S. I have been trying to get involved in the gratitude lounge, but my computer keeps bumping me off and goes black. I am not ignoring anybody, and trying to resolve this problem.
I am only now exploring the second session. Due to interrupted Internet service, I could not participate until now.
Wholeheartedness, to me, means not feeling self-conscious and being engrossed in my talents. It also means sharing my gifts.
Obstacles to Wholeheartedness are feeling unsafe, not having compassion for myself, and isolating myself.
Some health issues can be overwhelming, and I shut down sometimes. It is hard to live wholeheartedly when everyday tasks are difficult, and there is stigma attached to a particular illness.
I continue to try my best. I am grateful that it is June; my very best month of the year.
Be gentle with yourself. It is quite natural to go through many types of moods and thoughts, as you grieve. I am so sorry to hear that your mother died. Everyone grieves differently. It is okay not to smile right now.
My best friend died in December. The pain comes in waves now, for me. I just take one day at a time.
