What are you grateful for today?

Recommended Posts

I am grateful for having wonderful friends that always check on me.  I am grateful for strength and knowledge that is given from others with no return expectations.  Thank you for clean air, sweet food, nutrition and wellness.

Today I am thankful for the strength to be able to decide to take care of things and myself first and foremost.  I am grateful for the sun today, it has been cloudy with snow and rain.  I am thankful for grandchildren, because they always make me smile.

I am grateful for waking up to another wonderful day to take advantage of time spent with family.  The weekends are wonderful when not working.  Thank you for the memories.

In this moment I feel grateful for nourishing food, my health, and my body's wisdom. I've recently come to realize there is a link between chocolate and headaches for me, which makes me feel thankful that my body sends subtle messages to let me know when something is too much for me - when it needs to be balanced out in some way.

Thankful for  making mistakes.  (Not intentionally)..

Before?  I used to see mistakes/missteps/"screw ups" through the eyes of society:

he or she is "imperfect", "flawed", "less than", or even worse, shall i say it? "human"..😮

Now i see the mistakes as something i can learn from, laugh at myself, grow, and understand/connect with others.

Today I am grateful for an understanding family.  For the beauty of spring. for my dog Teddy.  I am grateful for relatives.  For the fresh air.  For a new awakening in the world.  I am grateful for health and my Facebook Hive.  

The wind today for air in the house.  The awakening happening right here at home.

Good day,

Today, I am grateful for my partner,  the fact that I have paid employment during COVID 19, and my daily mindfulness practice.

Today I am grateful for the birds I hear singing.  Our dog that keeps me company.  For flowers that remind me of my son who loves flowers.  I am grateful for Sean and this group.  I feel a real part of the community.  Sometimes a community takes on its own vibe with only certain people.  Not this one.  We are all here for one thing and it flows.  Thank you everyone.

Good morning,

@Paige PIlege, I agree that this community has a special vibe because we are all walking a similar path. 🙂 Today, I am grateful for my partner. I am also grateful for the opportunity today brings to make a difference in the lives of the people in my agency. I will do this by treating everyone I speak to today with empathy and kindness.

Thanks for listening.

Kind Regards,

Gene

    • I'm so glad...I can relate, I notice my throat chakra (not sure if you're familiar with chakras) closing up if I have something difficult to say, or if there's a message, whether coming from someone else or from my own psyche, that I'm having a difficult time listening to.  Or, I'll notice my throat getting dry or developing a bit of a cough. It's interesting to pay attention to the quality of your throat on various occasions. It really is affected by communication- both given and received. To open my throat, I practice what my yoga teacher called a "wolf howl": inhale through your nose, then exhale through your mouth as you tilt your head upward, exposing your throat, extending your chin forward and pursing your lips so you sort of make a circle with your mouth. I picture calming wind flowing from my heart through my throat. It really helps! 
    • Awesome - his son wrote the 5th agreement ... i forgot to recommend the very controversial osho's book - the empty boat - it really resonated. There's also a great set of spiritual movies i would love to recommend but will share that as a link... My favorite movie is  Kumare... https://priyankadevigupta.weebly.com/choosepeace.html  
    • I guess it is no coincidence that we are all circling around the same few books...I also have The Body Keeps the Score on my nightstand and leaf through it now and then to reread something that was of use when I read it the first time. I definitely see the perspectives of both @David Weiskopf and @Jo L in that considering who we may be guiding is important as well as the honesty and sincerity of our tone and invitation.  Both for me are ongoing parts of my own practices, and even how I think before regularly interacting with others.  Being present with whomever it may be that I am speaking with and being aware of my tone of voice, word choice, etc...really mirrors what I hope to be when in practice with others. Appreciate the dialogue here.  Be safe and well, all. Rachel
    • I do not mind at all. I have never met herald I know very little. Giving birth as a single mother in the 50's was shameful and I am guessing she was in Hassidic community in NY given the part of the city so that was even worse. That part is speculation. I did look for her but never found her. I can not say that I am not disappointed that  did not (potentially get to grow up in that community but they would not have accepted me anyway. Ask anything you want to. I appreciate your consideration.
    • So cool. I actually was going to ask you about your name, because I thought maybe you had changed your name to Faune given your love for animals and nature! I love the intuitiveness of your birth mother- she knew.  Forgive me if this is too intrusive- and please feel free to decline to answer- but did you ever meet her or do you know anything about her?
