There are times when it is necessary to maintain distance in a relationship; when it is dangerous to body or mind. It is important to protect oneself when someone in a relationship poses a threat.
Our grandson is a budding movie director. He was invited to a big event that showcased young directors like him and their movies. He had a perfect time until he tried to fly home, and of course the airlines were cancelling flights and he couldn’t get home. What happened was amazing–the festival directors comped him a room and he was able to spend the last night of the festival being recognized and saying goodbye to all the people he had met. A beautiful experience of receiving.
Be in the moment!
I can meet people where they are. No need to judge, or wish they were different. I have a two week trip coming up to another country and I plan to be as present and accepting of differences as I can, including my traveling companion!
I am glad for the many times I was able to help someone, which is what I believe to be my life’s purpose. Those memories do sustain me.
Remembering to breathe is the most important action for me to take when I am stressed.
By continually finding ways to be of service to those who need help. Given today’s political climate, I suspect there will be many opportunities.
The sun is up, the birds are singing and the tree outside my window is alive with color and a gentle breeze. What could be more miraculous than that!
I am grateful for medical insurance so my husband can go to the doctor today. I know so many do not have this “luxury.”
I would say my husband. He happily putters around the house (we are retired) and seems to always be busy doing something. He appreciates good food and loves to watch movies; he prefers staying home to going out. He is an introvert so this lifestyle suits him. I, on the other hand, am an extrovert, and he is happy for me to go out and be with friends as often as I want.
Children playing and laughing–it makes me smile every time!
All of the wonderful people in my life, and in the world. I also want to mention Liz Cheney, as she courageously defends our system of government this week.
I love being retired. The freedom to set my own schedule–or none at all–is a blessing.
I value peace of mind. Everything flows from there.
A friend of a friend has now become my friend. We have discovered that we are “simpaticos”, very much alike in how we think and process things. It has been a delight and a comfort.
Really, anytime. Tune out the noise, and listen to my inner promptings. This has been a wonderful discovery for me.
So true, Samuel. Thank you for this reminder.
I live in rainy northwest Oregon and I rejoice when the sun comes out!
