First by recognizing it. Then I think by allowing it to live and be exactly who it is. My cat her “catness,,” my neighbor her difference or similarity to me. Live and let live.
My 94-year-old aunt. I suspect she (and/or) my cousins lied to me. And I took action based on that belief. Seeing this great question prompts me to say that I could be wrong. Thanks team for it!
Jesus (and I’m not a Jesus person, per se.)
Yoga video on YouTube?
Fear, for me it’s always fear.
I had that today: a friend tried to make me feel guilty for an “omission.” I didn’t accept blame for it. I’m glad I didn’t. However she is sorely challenged in ways I can’t imagine. It’s hard to be her, I think. I feel compassion, but by the same token I won’t be used by her anger.
Still trying to do this.
Oh so many who are keeping our society functioning during this challenging time.
In Brother David’s own words, which I think of often, “Problems push toward solutions.”
Hmmm…not quite sure I get the connection, but here goes: I am an addict in recovery and every single day I am SO grateful for that fact that it enables me, perhaps, to act with courage when I’m scared. As Jackie said, gratefulness “gives me a solid foundation.”
I took my 3-mile walk today and it was glorious: sunny, windy. Heaven on earth to me; where I feel closest to God and me.
Sleep to me is the pinnacle blessing.
The picture of my first grandniece Anne, born Jan. 13, in her Cardi B t-shirt, laughing!
Lately when I’m feeling dissonance (either internal or external) I try to be grateful for it. My experience hasn’t shifted so far, but I believe I’m on the right track!
Early morning and about 5p. The sun!
Yesterday I went to Walmart Grocery to pick up my order…sign of the times!
Well, it’s gonna be gray here today, so it won’t be that glorious sun and wind that I treasure. But there is beauty everywhere. God, that I relish it!
So beautiful, and the blessings were a little surprising (imprecision, humility, departures.)
Love, relationships, living beings (human and not.)
Goin’ in to work today (it’s healthcare.) Glad to help. One of my tasks is to alert the office managers that we have toilet paper for them to pick up!
My parents. Their devotion to work (too much, but that’s another story.) I worked in community journalism for many years, just like them.
I’m currently considering the possibility of full-time work after many years away, and am using this time now to turn my life over daily to Spirit for guidance.
