Gratitude – July 31, 2019

Thank you Goddesses. Thank you Goddess of Abundance. Thank you Goddess of Wisdom. Thank you Goddess of Harmony. Thank you Goddess of Trust and Truth.

Thank you for this delicious and beautiful bowl of mango and strawberries. It’s a feast for the eyes as much as a feast for my tummy.

Thank you Universe for my opportunity to go to school for health coaching. I learned so much and my life is so much better now.

Thank you Family! Thank you Jes! I love you and it’s comforting to know you love me too.

Thank you Mother Nature for this gorgeous day! The temperature is great. The sky is amazing.

Thank you healers and your helpers. Thank you teachers and students. I add students because without us there would be no need to teachers, right?

Thank you leaders and followers. Thank you dreamers. Thank you hippies and peace freaks.

Thank you musicians. Thank you artists. Thank you storytellers, written and spoken.

This is an abundant Universe. Thank you Goddesses!!

Thank you Goddesses! Thank you Goddess of Abundance! Thank you sooooooo much.

Thank you for teaching me to stop and ask “What is this teaching me?” Thank you Goddess of Wisdom! What a difference that makes. I will try to describe what happened this morning. It feels like a miracle.

We live in a fixer upper house. It’s paid for so no mortgage payment, no rent. My previous self used to look at this as the best I can do. Like this is all that I can afford. This is my lot in life. This is as nice a house as I deserve to live in.

We have a back room that has eleven leaks in the roof. Yep, 11. It doesn’t take much rain either. Last night while we slept it apparently rained pretty hard. We didn’t have our buckets set up. This morning we woke up to a very wet floor. It’s only in one room, mind you. And we don’t use that room for much anyway. So it’s really not that big of a deal.

Anyway, as I was having my morning cuppa coffee, I was pondering this state of affairs. And instead of reacting in my usual bratty way (waaaaa poor me, the places I’m forced to live……), I posed the question – what am I supposed to learn from this.

The answer was – this is a fixer upper and you really dig doing projects like this. Seriously, this is your jam. This is your dream life. Well, not exactly my dream life, but I do really dig projects like this.

While I’m still striving to support myself financially, I’m already living part of my dream life. I can’t go buy a new-to-me car right now. My wardrobe is pretty thin. But, I get to ponder life over coffee for as long as I want to every morning. Every morning.

I don’t have to set an alarm. I get to write blog posts like this! I don’t have to write this post either. I’m choosing to write it. I get to choose how to spend my day.

That’s living the dream. Thank you Goddesses. I’m humbled and grateful.

Thank you Goddess of Abundance. Thank you Goddess of Wisdom. Thank you Goddess of Harmony. Thank you Goddess of Trust and Truth. Thank you all un-named Goddesses and Gods. Thank you Inner Goddess. Thank you Inner Child. Thank you Inner Wild One.

My heart is full. Thank you.

Thank you Goddesses!

Today I am grateful that I am home, in my own home. I’m grateful that I have places to put my things – i.e. bathroom stuff, essential oils on the kitchen window seal, a desk – lots of things to be grateful for.

Thank you Goddess of Abundance! Thank you Goddess of Wisdom! Thank you Goddess of Harmony! Thank you Goddess of Trust and Truth!

Thank you for all of the teachers and their helpers! Thank you for all of the artists! Thank you for the internet and our access to friends across the globe.

Thank you friends and family!

Thank you healers and helpers. May I be one.

Happy Birthday Pat!!

Thank you Goddesses. I am on an amazing learning adventure. You know how I like to learn and you keep giving me new stuff. Thank you!!

Thank you Goddess of Abundance for the abundance of captivating topics. Thank you for all of my blessings too. I have an abundance of those.

Thank you Goddess of Harmony. There is peace in our house and it’s lovely.

Thank you Goddess of Wisdom. Thank you for my age and my wisdom. I may have been just as wise when I was younger, but now it is a more conscious wisdom. It feels more conscious anyway. Deliberate. Thoughtful.

Thank you Goddess of Trust and Truth. Thank you for holding steady and giving me a point to return to when things get fuzzy.

Thank you past lives, past personalities, past experiences. I’m learning that they have indeed helped create the person writing this – I am a creation. It feels funny to write that. It’s one thing to hear someone say “you are a creation.” It’s quite another to believe that I am a creation. How humbling. Thank you!

Thank you for reading this.

Gratitude – June 30, 2019

May I take a moment to explain myself?

I had a journaling practice based on Julia Cameron’s The Artist Way. Three pages first thing in the morning. It evolved into the last page always beginning with gratitude. Sometimes the whole page was filled with thanks, sometimes not, but it always started out that way.

My journaling practice – I want to say – evolved. When in reality my practice dissolved. That was just over a month ago.

Well, I’m back to it albeit in a different way. I’m focusing on gratitude. And I’m doing it online now. I loved the act of writing. I enjoyed holding the pen, the feel of the notebook, and my handwriting had improved. But, life is always evolving, and now I’m going online with it.

Thank you for reading this. I would love to hear your comments! Do you journal?

Thank you Charlie for spending time with me. My diet is so much better when we share our meals. Cooking for two is my sweet spot.

Thank you Internet. Haha, that seems weird to say. But seriously, thank you Internet (and the people that made it happen.)

Thank you doTERRA and your essential oils!

Thank you the Institute of Integrative Nutrition for changing my life.
