I’m very grateful for so many things in my life, for health, family, fitness, faith, and the opportunity to learn something new every day.
I am having a difficult relational time with a colleague in work, however rather than getting down about it, I‘m aiming to build personal confidence and resilience through being grateful that I can live and learn from this experience.
Working in hospitals during Covid time it has inspired me that I can see kindness in some people’s eyes (when staff are gowned and masked up) it is their eyes and voice that we look to for compassion and support.
I never feel alone when I think of Jesus and God being with me and us, I’ve felt supported so many times from simply thinking of this and asking for help. I feel very grateful for this.
To rest is wonderful, I wish I rested more than I do. Long working hours across 6 or 7 days and a difficulty switching off mean that I don’t give my body and mind enough time off. I’m so grateful to be a great sleeper, perhaps just not enough. I’ve started a bedtime meditation for 15mins and rarely get past 10 ?
Perhaps an unusual fear, but I fear being insincere. I am striving to be authentic in my feelings, my words and actions, to display a genuineness in how I lead my life for others. I am grateful that this learning time is helping me to reflect on this in a positive way.
I’m a morning person, I love the quiet of 5-8am, I am at my most reflective, aware and attitude of gratitude during these hours (especially at weekend when I less have to prepare for work). Both feet on the ground, I’m listening to the wind outside, feeling grateful that wind creates energy for the day and night.
I’m thoughtful today of people who have difficulty breathing and when I go out on my run shortly, I’ll be conscious of my own breathing yet, how lucky I am to have clear lungs, to pray for those who don’t, that they may have courage and receive support when they struggle with their breathing
Just to relax, eyes closed, thinking on my breathing helps me to connect with gratitude for the simple (yet vital and most important) things
Thank you Serafina, you are very kind
I share this fear of yours Betsy, I have a very busy working life and it bumps against my ability to fulfil my family life responsibilities. I fear the impact of making poor decisions about how I use my time. On a positive, we are aware of this fear and seeking to respond appropriately. Best wishes
Bless you Sarah, and every best wish going forward, your little story is inspiring for those who face darkness in their lives. I have been very fortunate to have good physical and mental health throughout my life, so I try to listen and learn from others and hope that should change happen for me, I will remember how people like you have gotten to a better place.
