I am grateful for numerous things, too many to count and it would be impossible to list them all. Just waking up to a new day and being part of a family, friend circle, workplace, community, city, country, planet is reason to be grateful. The message of today is a wake up call and reminder to truly appreciate every moment.
I have a host of medical issues but continue to take my body for granted and don’t treat it well. I’m fighting a couple of auto immune conditions plus eczema plus degenerative disc disease (lower back issues). I feel bad for even saying it as I dont want it to sound like I’m complaining. I know that so many people have medical conditions much much worse to deal with. But I do neglect myself. I need to do things to bring my immune system in balance. I realize that I need to love my b...
I have a host of medical issues but continue to take my body for granted and don’t treat it well. I’m fighting a couple of auto immune conditions plus eczema plus degenerative disc disease (lower back issues). I feel bad for even saying it as I dont want it to sound like I’m complaining. I know that so many people have medical conditions much much worse to deal with. But I do neglect myself. I need to do things to bring my immune system in balance. I realize that I need to love my body and look after it as there are no spare parts to take over if something fails altogether. I am very grateful for this question today, it’s the Universe’s way of reminding me of what I need to do.
I’ve been holding onto anger and irritation towards myself for a long time. I cant seem to achieve the goals I set myself and I am constantly annoyed with myself. It would be freeing to accept myself as it is and to let it go.
I am grateful for the beginning of the voice of consciousness, mindfulness and gratitude that is taking birth within me. I am very grateful for this new beginning and hope and pray that this tiny seed continues to grow.
I would be in a constant state of awe, humility, gratitude and peace.
In moments of awe, I realize that our Creator who created such magnificence also created me and I feel gratitude. In those moments I also realize how tiny I am in comparison to the bigness and vastness of our universe and cosmos and I feel humbled.
I have more than enough to satisfy my needs and my wants. In addition, I have resources, opportunities and options. I have family, love and friendship and a fulfilling career. What I lack are some of the gifts of the Holy Spirit i.e. Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Fortitude and Knowledge. The more mindful I become and the more I come to this wonderful site, the more I realize how Blessed I am and how I need to give back and develop these key virtues.
I think being grateful for life’s journey is the first step and cherishing (truly enjoying) is the second step. If I am grateful for my life, I can learn to cherish it. If I am not grateful, I will not cherish it. I am truly grateful for my life, but this question makes me ponder about whether I truly enjoy everything I do or do I just go through the day rushing around treating life like a ‘to-do’ list?
My aspiration is to do something for myself today, that my future self will be thankful for. Investing in myself today, by eating better, being a better person, being less judgmental, ,being more patient, being more loving, being more caring. My aspiration is to do this everyday and my future self will benefit from this change. It is very hard and nearly impossible though.
By never giving up, by staying on course, by doing my best and leaving the rest up to God. And then by accepting the outcome whether it was something I desired or not. Today’s message about going with the flow and not resisting the currents is another good way to build resiliency.
Right now my eczema is driving me crazy. All over my face and itching terribly. I am trying to remember that ‘this too shall pass’. I suppose this is a round about way of saying that we should live in the present and lean into every moment fully, because whether it’s a good moment or a bad moment, it will pass. If it’s a good moment, enjoy it as it may not last. If it’s a bad moment, have patience because it will pass. Happy Friday wonderful community.
To love and serve unconditionally and without expectations of reciprocity.
(1) I could and should connect more deeply with individuals I have a strong relationship with as I tend to take these relationships for granted.
(2) I could and should connect more deeply with individuals who I have difficulty with and step into their shoes and understand their position more than I currently do.
This is a good question. I have lots and lots of room for improvement here.
