Unfortunately I think I tend to dwell more on my weakness after being challenged and rarely acknowledge the strengths of character that help me to grow, learn and move on.
They remind us of the joy of living in the moment.
A smile and a listening ear.
My chance visit to an amazing doctor 6yrs ago who diagnosed my lupus….. Many people struggle for years before getting a proper diagnosis.
Helps us to stop, recognise and appreciate every aspect of our daily lives. A gratefulness moment upon opening my eyes each the morning and last thing at night has really made a difference for me.
Unconditional love… I have lots of friends but true friends love and accept me “warts and all”
Knowing you can truly be urself in their company.
I have lost friends, all younger than me, to cancer and unfortunate freak accidents. These friends remind me daily how precious and unpredictable life can be and help me to grab the moments. For this I am truly grateful.
Given what’s happening in the world right now..
Every day is a gift.

They have made me appreciate the calm and weather the storms, knowing that they will pass.
I am trying to build up my self esteem and confidence to find and follow the beat of my own drum rather than constantly feeling the need to adjust my dance to follow the beat of others.
I am really trying to learn to hold myself. Until I learn to hold myself with love how can I hold others.
Sites like this that I visit daily. They help me to stay on track by reviewing my life. Thank you.
My head wrecking teenage daughter, who finds me a total annoyance, needs me now more than ever. A very difficult stage in parenting nowadays

By firstly practicing self compassion and by learning to love myself
I feel awake, alive yet calm n centered.
Patience, unconditional love, appreciation and selflessness
