Life, in all it’s forms, is awe-inspiring. The more I get to see, mostly through TV, the more amazed I am. And for us, as humans, to have the awareness and intelligence to be able to appreciate, experience and, somewhat understand some of it, is such an exciting privilege.
The love and support of my friends and family and remembering that this, too, shall pass.
By accepting the situation I find myself in and seeing that my perspective is absolutely unique. No one else is having my experience. How I deal with things will have outcomes that are mine to deal with and by looking at things from the standpoint of gratefulness I will have no regrets ?
My care worker has just accidentally smashed my favourite mug. But I am so grateful that I have other mugs to use and that I have access to clean, safe drinking water along with abundant food of my choice, a safe home and people who care about me.
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.
Wise words, Kevin, thank you.
Aww Michele! That is so heartwarming. Thanks for posting this, I’m going to share it. xx
Dear Antoinette, I understand your suffering. I too get migraines that go on for days and it does grind you down doesn’t it? I hope this one will soon pass and it will be a long time before the next monster.
Love and hugs ((xx))
