Living gratefully, a day at a time.
As Kristi said on Zoom “practice takes practice.” I just took a few minutes to draw a spiral and start writing. I am more a word artist than a visual artist, so the visual practice brought a different sense of connection. Wonderful activity. Thank you!
Beautiful writing and story Elizabeth! Thank you! You took some vulnerable leaps and look where you landed. I appreciate that you didn’t attach expectations to your vulnerability, you accepted whatever the outcome might be. Write on!
From the careful handwriting of an 11-year-old writing a poem to enter into a local contest, to the recovering alcoholic who turned to a gratitude journal at the suggestion of a friend over 25 years ago, putting pen to paper has been such a meaningful and regular part of my life. Sacred ritual indeed. It is undoubtedly one of the most healing and transformative practices to define my life. What a treasure!
Fabiana–thank you for capturing the life and legacy of this wonderful poet so well.
Thank you Amy! The little things in life that unfold just when we need them–synchronicity indeed. It amazes me the connections that can happen when people share gratefulness and genuine vulnerability. Blessings to you on your journey.
Thank you Allyson! And generosity lends itself to an open mind and heart, which allows more gratefulness to flow and more energy to build. As I age, I appreciate this source of energy more and more.
Thank you Sieger and I wish you the best in answering your heart’s call. Little steps can lead to big awakenings. Onward!
Thank you Ed! Sharing gratefulness is one way we can stem the tide of isolation. “Be present”
is the key. Thanks for that reminder.
Thanks Sheila! I never could have imagined the profound changes in my life either.
Thank you Karmit! I so appreciate this path of living gratefully and where it can lead.
