My mom. I’m thankful for how I was raised and loved. I miss her very much. Happy Thanksgiving everyone:)
Life. I’ve been working in a tissue bank for one month now and everyday I see someone who has died and their last wish is the gift of life. Our bodies truly are vehicles for our souls. Seeing photos of the donor knowing just 24 hrs ago they were alive really makes one appreciate that you never know when your time is up. I commit to not taking life for granted and I’m a organ and tissue donor.
When I wake up grateful I feel blessed and a smile happens.
Gazing up at the stars always fill me with wonder. Human anatomy fills me with wonder. Nature fills me with wonder.
I can continue to practice gratefulness, enjoy the little things, and appreciate those I love to savor more of my life.
I think assuming the absolute best about everyone leads one down the wrong path – no one is perfect, you have to earn trust, and people disappoint people. It’s a set up for disaster. There’s a reason you’re supposed to trust your gut instinct.
Letting go of anger/resentments changes one’s mindset-stress dissipates and peaces arrives. It’s not healthy or good for your body. It’s a process for sure.
Easy question for me – the person I have underestimated was my ex. It teaches me that just when you think you know someone and trust someone with everything, you can be dead wrong about them. It also teaches me not to hang onto number values – 6 yrs is long, 20 yrs is long, but nothing is set in stone. Funny, I thought today’s question was going to have to deal with nature based on the word for the day, lol.
My job, my family, my home and pets are sufficient in my life right now.
What a great surprise for her!
translation: To savor life more I can be more present, practice gratitude, fully accept things as they are. You could practice mindfulness and meditate to train your body and mind to savor life experiences more.
