Being grateful for the small things is the extension of my inner healing path.
To enjoy the simple pleasured life offers everyday. During the lock-down, we are home bound, so I enjoy that I have a safe and warm home, with everything I need. I once heard, if you sit still and take stock of your life now, would you be satisfied to life like that for the rest of your life?
My answer is a definite YES.
That people are reaching out more, and show casing their talents. I suspect life is going to be quite different after this lock down. And that in itself, gives me hope.
I am doing #HuisKonsert video’s on Facebook, If you’d like to have a look. You can find me with Marykekie.
I have read a lot about ‘loving yourself first’, so I am on that journey right now. Doing what brings me peace, balance and happiness.
But in this – reaching out to others – even just to make them smile, brings me happiness. I’ve started making short videos where I sing and loading them up to Facebook, and the response I’m receiving is good. So, in tending to myself, I am also tending to others.
I greet the world with amazement. Everyday brings something new to be thankful for.
I enjoyed a lovely sunrise at the Sculpture Park a while back. Also Clarens which is an arty town in South Africa, and Danabaai.
Roof over my head, food, coffe, tea, rusks … my kamera, talents and peace.
My father, but I’m not ready.
Yellow for happy smiles, yellow Daisies, yellow antique clocks and the brightest yellow for my sun and stars.
My grandchild … when she says “Hello Granny”, my heart just melts. Then my oldest son, my voice of reason. My best friend, Lindie .. my rock.
All the other friends and family..
Flowers, animals … sereneness, peace … just the feeling of existing in a world much larger than me. So many opportunities and new things to explore. I see light at the end of the tunnel.
I am afraid that the diagnosis of bipolar 1, will stop me from reaching my dreams. I’m questioning if, what I want is real, or is it depression or mania speaking. I just don’t know … and now, I am unable to do anything.
If love could read our minds, love would say: ‘You are overrating love for others.’ Love would tell you to love yourself as you would love the ‘big love of your life’.
To be kind, giving, forgiving, loving, patient with yourself and spoil yourself as you would others.
Love would say … love to live, but don’t live to love.
Learning to get to know the new me, after severe loss, heartache and doing the inner work. My sanity matters the most to me.
Strong boundaries and learning to say no without having to explain yourself.
My freedom and inner peace is sacred to me … I will not allow anyone to disturb it, ever again.
Healing comes from inside. So, if I am grateful for all things in my life (even the not so good – as it is a lesson to be learned) I can gradually change my negative outlook to a more positive outlook, therefore, increasing my vibrations and send out healing light to others.
Really dig into my writing and do another 5% on my life coach course.
I am at a stage where I feel so vulnerable and confused really. There are people I want to shove so far away that I could never find them again, and then … I want to gather them to my heart and just hold them there forever.
But I think I’ll just keep on with my inner work to shine brighter and then maybe distances will sort itself out.
Rain is magical to me. The way it cleans and sustains. It is raining right now, and I am enjoying it tremendously. Stood in the rain until I was drenched.
Anna – you did not annoy me. I’m glad when someone is glad to see my icon. I’m glad to see yours as well.
