Hi Christina. I AM young at almost 60, and feel it in relative terms. Thank you for reminding me. Yet it is true that many people feel old at this age. If I am still alive in 10 years, I will surely write the blog again, and hope that my perspective will remain the same. My intention will be to remain grateful for all that I can be, knowing that the balance will be in my favor right up till my last breath…and perhaps beyond.
I love what you say Sieger, “By acting like this, the day becomes MY DAY!” What a beautiful way to feel empowered in the Universe to which you belong.
Thank you so much for your very generous praise, Mary Agnes. I am so grateful to have been able to offer you something that you will treasure again, and may it continue to serve you well. Blessings to you.
Thank you dear Pilgrim. Thank you.
Thank you so much Sheila. It means a lot to me to know that these words are meaningful to you! XO
Nicos, you always surprise me and surprise me not! Thank you for your wonderful comment and example. As I say above, there are many ways to hold this question, and I love imagining that our continuous appreciation for all things on which our lives depend is of great benefit for all involved. Certainly our solar system! And our precious home planet and all of its extraordinary gifts, above most all else…
Thank you Nancy for your wishes and for knowing what truly matters; the inside stuff. And no matter the condition of the outside, what a gift that we get to have a vehicle through which to be alive, experience life, and share love!
Thank you, bringer of many miracles, Pear. Blessed by you always…Kristi
Elizabeth – Happy 90th birthday and bless you for your Big Ageless Spirit! You are one of Br David’s peers – and he is another example of someone who keeps his childlike wonder and playfulness close, to great results. You are an inspiration!
Big, grateful thanks to you Sheila and keep being an inspiration! Taking nothing for granted surely does make for a miraculous life. XO
THANK YOU Rhonda! You are a great inspiration, and a grateful living practitioner for sure. Many blessings on your robust and generative life, and thank you for sharing your story with us!
Beautiful awareness, and a beautiful way to share it with others! Thank you Cintia. How blessed your students are. If only our educational system focused on teaching this kind of gratitude…We are glad that YOU do!
Thank you GT. Caregiving is indeed a perfect example of something that we can see as a privilege if we frame it as such, and not simply an obligation. And you are right that it is one of the most sacred of opportunities, often not offered recognition or due value in our society. Thank you so much for sharing this example with us.
Thank you for sharing this Sheila, and for staying with the learning. This “Obligation” practice is meant to be a heart-opening re-frame. We are glad it was meaningful to you, and hope that many others will also find it to be so…
Please do let us know if you come to this area to see the collection. Some of our Network for Grateful Living staff are nearby and would be so happy to meet you at the Archives and take you on a tour!
Thanks for your comment KC – I am thrilled that you found value in my elucidation of gratefulness and you are so right that we need to be patient and kind with ourselves to change the course of our lives, All well wishes on your journey and many thanks for traveling with us!
Dear Ose – how lovely to hear your thoughts, and thank you for sharing them! I love that you can see this training as a way to help “serve the whole” for indeed, we are more available to love when we are headed in a direction that sees the good and can respond to the opportunities that present themselves to us. This is something very hard to do when we are on that negative train…With appreciation for your consistent presence…
Gargi – Thank you for going towards the oasis that awaits you. It is always available, even if sometimes it is an effort to turn ourselves around. It is worth it, and you are in great company, and a beautiful part of the human family and our community. Stay committed…
Blessing you Anna – for your kind praise and more so for your commitment to your own practice of self awareness. Thank you for being part of this community. Keep on…
Carol – Wow. Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful story with us, and for your being so courageously, lovingly present to see and hold the gifts of your life. Your sharing here is very moving, and I know that you will inspire others with your tenderness. Many, many blessings to you and all your companions…
