The clear blue sky over my garden where a white butterfly is dancing around the last of the summer flowers. The hundreds of fuschia flowers that hang like earrings from the bushes and the soft breeze that’s making them tremble. The beauty of this view from my window never ceases to give me joy and peace.
Take moments through the day to just be in that moment. Be fully in the moment and feel the peace in that space. Even just one conscious breath brings me calm and balance.
Me too, Pilgrim and Anna. Having my children has just been the most wonderful experience. Watching them grow and develop into confident and caring adults has been everything I hoped it would be. And their love and support through my many years of illness is just wonderful.
Expressing gratitude to someone makes them feel valued and happy so in turn they will feel gratitude and the world becomes a kinder place 🙂
Dear Kat, thank you so much for sharing this with us. It sounds like quite a powerful way to deal with life’s frustrations. I’m going to give it a try!
When I consider nature, it’s abundance, beauty and diversity, it blows my mind!
Watching the birds having a bath and a drink in the stream that runs into a pond just outside my patio doors.
Feeling the soft, warm fur of my dear old cat as she lies next to me, purring.
Lying in my comfy bed.
I’m having problems with the care company who provide my daily care right now. It’s testing my patience and my ability to be assertive. I have been left not knowing who is coming, when, or for how long and the manager has made herself unavailable. Some of the carers are lovely and I don’t want to have the upheaval of starting again with another company. I’m old and tired and just want a quiet, simple life!
My true nature? Well, I am a tiny bit of all there is, all that exists in this vast, amazing space. I try to be aware of that as much as I can as it fills me with awe and wonder and joy. Life is hard, painful and difficult and there are times when I’ve had quite enough of it, thank you very much. But what an experience! Those experiences are what have shaped me and made me who I am. And as long as I am alive I can go on learning and evolving into my true nature.
I am lying in my bed with the patio door open as it’s warm and sunny. It is quiet and peaceful and I can hear the gentle trickle of water from a stream that runs into a pond, which is surrounded by colourful flowers and buzzing bees. Birds are coming and going, bathing in the stream and I am safe, loved and have everything I need.
This moment is all we truly have. Everything else is either the past or the future, held or worried over in the mind. To sit with this moment, just as it is, is beautiful and I find great peace there.
I am grateful for questions that really make me think about my attitudes and perspective on life.
Wishing everyone a peaceful day.
My spiritual growth
Sense of humour
Love of all nature
Strength of character
Ability to be a good friend
Sense of justice
Stay in that comfy bed and get well soon, Journey x

Hang in there Shaun. Here’s a hug to help you along 🤗
You make a very good point. Sometimes we just expect more from someone than they can live up to and we are left hurt and confused. I hope you can find a way through this and find a place of peace again. With love x
