I am just grateful to be alive.
Offer a kind word, and watch my attitude. I have grown confident in the competence gained from life experience. I forget that not everyone has had the same blessing and that I need to build people up.
Those that question my thoughts and what I am feeling and why. They help me get to what is below the surface to challenge my societally imposed attitudes. Very important.
I don’t remember responding to this question. The stars that appear are different to each situation. More than anything, it takes life experience to know you will get through whatever comes our way. That is everything.
I don’t know. For me it isn’t gratefulness that deepens compassion, it is life experience. Because I have survived much I can identify with almost anything. Lol ife is not easy.
The pandemic has brought my childhood traits back into focus. Meaning, I grew up to 6th grade without a TV in the house and pretty much made my own entertainment. Doing it again now.
As I don’t know what is best about me I cannot respond to this. I know I have drive and discipline and I used that alot in college 2008-2014. But otherwise nothing comes to mind.
I have already done my Wim Hof breathing to strengthen my body against the virus. Then I will do language study and play pickleball. Also some meditation before pickleball. Through all of it will be thought watching to guard against complaint and criticism, turning instead to gratefulness to be alive and healthy.
We cannot do what the daily word suggests. We cannot drop our boundaries and open ourselves to abusive people. There are certain people I simply cannot be nice to. As for carrying enduring love. That would be my father who passed 40 years ago, and an elderly friend of mine.
With kindness and compassion.
I have already grown it through a life of great difficulty. Life is a series of one circumstance after another teaching us to keep getting up. Some learn it faster than others. It depends on ones temperament.
This is a tough one. I suppose it would be reflected in those activities I make time for throughout each day and week.
Whatever presents itself. Perhaps extending a kind heart toward whoever wins the election here in the US.
I do. Self forgiveness is the hardest thing in the world.
It depends on who I am speaking to and what the interaction is about. Most interactions are very general. But that is where awareness comes in. When an opportunity comes up, speak to it with the whole heart and mean every word. Withholding words is sometimes the best way to speak.
The picture of that big spider was not appreciated. I was attacked by a terrantula once. I won’t forget it.
Music. Sunshine and clear skies no matter the temp. The carefree nature of children at play.
It would keep me humble. However, there are circumstances for which we bear no fault and the key there is to find what we can be grateful for.
So very much. I started my gratitude journey. Read massive numbers of books to review on my blog. Started my blog. Started my language study via Duolingo. Got involved with Letters Against Isolation. Joined a gym through Silver Sneakers. My son reconciled with me. Enjoyed profound amounts of sunshine. What more could a person want?
Peace is present right here on this site. It is present in me every time I meditate. Peace is a sense of quietness that is right here inside us. We must allow it to pervade our little worlds and connect us to each other.
I have no partner either but do have adult children and siblings.
