The people I express gratitude are thankful to hear it and I am happier because o get to enjoy their happiness too.
To recognize that we are all human and we all have the same basic needs. We all should be treated equally and like we matter. The mental health of all would be much improved!
When my son was born at 23 weeks I cried and wondered ‘why me’. But then I reframed me thinking into ‘why not me, why anybody’ and started to think about things to be thankful. This thought switch kept me sane and positive (enough)!
I’ve asked for gifts to enjoy nature- paddle-board and cross country skis. Both gifts have helped me to embrace our beautiful peaceful outdoors!
Right now after Easter and another big meal- I feel like I’m growing in width😉
But in reality everyday is a chance to grow and learn something new. I try to keep my ears open to learn from others daily!
Stress that causes tight muscles. Want to do more but sometimes the stressed out muscles hold me back.
My mom taught me to enjoy the little things, even when life is tough there is always something good.
Enjoy the little moments, for one day you will look back and they will be the big moments.
My family is near me, it is beautiful outside my window. Beauty is everywhere!
I fixed someone’s bell and polished it up- they were appreciative!
I have a family I love, a job, a house, friends, my health, and so much more. I am truly fortunate!
A smile and a wave- makes my day every time!
Fear- fear of failure, fear of not thinking I’m good enough, fear of success- plain old fear
Just recently I’ve realized many people just want to be seen. When I make a good effort to visit and connect I see so many people light up. This has taught me to greet everyone while being as friendly as possible.
I need to do this more. When I’m curious I usually have fun learning and trying to solve a problem.
My life has turned out very little like I imagined yet it is a wonderful life and I adore most moments and am thankful it didn’t turn out like I imagined!
If I were to die I would regret all the ‘messes’ I left behind. It would make life a little more difficult for those who would have to take over for me. I really should spend time getting my life organized.
A girl who talked to me. Her brother told her she shouldn’t talk to strangers. She said that’s not a stranger that’s a girl😊.
Different memories on different days make me laugh!
I usually feel content when I’m with my family or outside in nature. Two gifts that I absolutely treasure!
The best thing that had helped me in times of grief is remembering all the good in my life. This has not always been easy, but be thankful for the good things has often helped me refocus my mind!
