My inner child who I allowed into my life a couple of years. He was the source of my pain and suffering for a long time. It was not until I recognized who he was, let him into my life and promised to be there for him and protect him, that a change within myself happened.
Playing my guitar and learning how to play. Looking up at the night sky and seeing the vastness of the universe with all those points of light . Watching and hearing a family of blue jays that have made a nearby cedar their home.
By actively setting time aside for it. Going outside and enjoying nature that god has provided. By focusing on it in a present mind and being grateful for nature’s wonders and offerings.
I can sit and be still with myself first thing in the morning when I wake up and silence is present. I have been focusing as well on practicing to be still and listening to those who I am interacting with. My anxiety has interfered with this and at times my “monkey mind” takes over. With my continuous meditation practice and learning to focus on the present things are getting easier..
You are strong. You are worthy. You are lovable. You are awesome because there will only ever be one of you.
My perspective of how I see things and my reactions to it changes. Sometimes we only view things how we believe they should be without looking at other perspectives.
I tore my meniscus about a month ago. It’s healing nicely and mostly due to the help and extra help that my wife has done for me. She has been my support.. I am also aware of the daily acts of kindness observed on this forum. The love and support others show each other who are going through difficulties. Gratefulness.org has been a personal Godsend for me.
Living in the now by focusing on what’s happening in the moment. Just finished my morning meditation and enjoying the experience of tranquility, positivity and looking forward to the new day which begins. Gratitude graces my heart
As everyday, I make time for silence when I wake up early and the sun has just started to rise. The silence allOwns me to concentrate n my mediation and self reflection without interruption..
With my bedroom window at night, I am graced to the sounds of birds chirping at 4am . They are announcing a new day, new opportunities for me.
I’ve grown by letting myself become vulnerable to my wife telling her things that she was not aware of and by expressing my feelings. This is creating a better bond between us.
Playfulness in practicing my guitar and playing my music learning an art is a lifelong adventurer where individuals can always improve and have something to express their skills and emotions to others
Forest Gump.. I’ve watched it at least 5o times.. the memories of growing up during those times, the music and the meaning and lessons learned by Forrest.
People change over time and being in a long term relationship means evolution and learning to accept those changes with gratitude and love. By doing so love flourishes when acceptance and support is Present and learning to let go of the past.
Right now when I do my daily meditations, journaling, reading these questions and lighting the candle. And oh yes, sipping my coffee as I listen to the birds singing and watch daylight dissipating the darkness signaling a new day, new opportunities!
Living in the present and accepting what is going on now no matter what happens prevents disappointments, what ifs or what might happen from entering the equation. We can’t change the past and often we can’t control what will happen especially when others are involved.
By accepting myself and others for who we are even though we might not agree. By providing love compassion and support to all and being there for them and ourselves. Starting each day with reflection,, Gratefulness and acceptance
Gratefulness opens my heart to others, allowing empathy, love and understanding to arise and settle within my soul
A new day, a new beginning..knowing what it is being alive and appreciation life itself
As they say “music soothes the savage beast.” I also find that listening to music is like time travel. . A certain song takes us back to a specific situation or happening. This is why music is wonderful for those with Alzheimer’s..
