“Gratitude places you in the energy field of plentitude. Perceiving life in a consciousness of gratitude is literally stepping into another dimension of living. Suddenly the seeming ordinariness of your days takes on a divine sparkle.”
I am grateful to delight in the divine sparkle of life as I relish and savor all that I have to be grateful for. There is so much more to appreciate than to complain about. I bask in the extraordinary world of thankfulness whenever I can.
Incredibly thankful for the love and connections I share with so many — with my cozy family consisting of my husband and our two cherished furry friends; and with my dear sisters who are so close to me; and my stepkids and darling grandsons; and with the close-knit spiritual family I am so blessed to have chosen; and with all the fabulous friends who I share interests with like fellow authors and artists and prayer partners and progressives I know that love is of utmost importance in this life and I am happy to share my love with so many, including loving ME. Grateful grateful grateful!
I am very grateful that I am usually able to keep a positive, optimistic outlook on life, even when things go awry in a less than ideal way. This is a true gift and I know not everyone possesses such a trait. So thankful to stay in a high vibration expecting the best and then watching it unfold!
“Follow your nature and accord with the Tao; Saunter along and stop worrying.”
~Hsin-hsin Ming, 7th Century A.D.
I skip and meander along my path, letting go of all worries! I am filled with great gratitude to cast off burdens as I go, assured that the Way is always shown.
“When we fail to set boundaries and hold people accountable, we feel used and mistreated.”
This week I had an opportunity to set healthy boundaries with someone. It can feel intimidating to do so, because I am unsure of the reaction, but I’ve noticed when I draw the line, a person is usually respectful and accepting. I am very grateful for this acquired skill that has gotten easier as I age. It is sometimes absolutely necessary, and let’s me feel powerful and autonomous and free!
