Gratitude Friday, thank you words

Welcome on a new edition of my weekly ritual, Gratitude Friday (if you are not familiar with it, please go read how it came up and what it is about).

thanks

*inhaling deeply* Some days, I wonder why is Life made of so many highs and lows, I know that without the ebbs we would not even be aware of the highs but still… I have this piece of lyrics stuck in my head, it says «So if the world is round now, why can't we have everything? 'Cause the highs are so high, these lows are killing me.» Knowing there will be higher days helps, sometimes. Not always.

Days are getting shorter and shorter, I love and hate Fall season. I’m a Summer girl I guess. So taking it slowly, getting rid of stuff and of emotional baggage.

How do you deal with the change of season, any coping mechanism ?

This week, I am thankful for:

  • Rose Ave. the freshly released album from duo You+Me (Alecia Moore aka P!nk & Dallas Green aka City and Colour)
  • tv show Grimm (still catching up)
  • Tiger balm on my back
  • Sisterhood that makes me feel like I belong
  • The perspective of soon going to our family vacation in Oregon
  • Sia, Sara Bareilles, You+Me, Of Monsters & Men
  • Ways we have to communicate with those far away
  • Wonderful art classes: SoulBird by Mindy Lacefield, Painted Paper Doll by Danielle Daniel.
  • Magical mail received throughout the week. What a blessing. I will pay it forward and share the love
  • My husband love, support and desire to make everything work, together.

It’s Friday *dancing around* ! I hope your week was sweet like honey, spicy like cinnamon and tangy like fresh lemon.

Rough at heart, rough in my heart , it put me deep in the Dark. But let not focus on that but on the positive side of it. Because there is always a light shining somewhere within all of it. always.

This week, I am thankful for:

  • Community Grace
  • Magical Sabbatical
  • Sisterhood
  • Grimm, Parenthood, Brothers & Sisters, Gilmore Girls, Finding Carter
  • The people signing up for Soul Deck.
  • Songs
  • My sketchbook, allowing me to let it out and process
  • Tears
  • New doors to open
  • Soul work
  • My diary
  • Morning walks

I am praying that it will get easier and smoother. Sooner than later. And if life is hard on your, if you feel more emotional than usual, know you are not alone. You.Are.Not.Alone. Please reach out. Don’t be afraid to say «I need help». Especially in this season.

Gratitude Friday, thank you back to school

Welcome on a new edition of my weekly ritual, Gratitude Friday (if you are not familiar with it, please go read how it came up and what it is about). thanks

I am a bit late on my blogging schedule but I am making peace with it, that sometimes priorities change and it’s ok. Sia is singing as I type this, I have been listening to her, everything from her, a lot. She is this amazing song write, truth teller, and it strikes a cord within me. The rain is falling. I am sipping on a green smoothie that is not that bad even if not amazing. This week, I am grateful for:

  • The end of the teachers’ strike and back-to-school
  • The moments when the Sun shows up between the clouds and the rain
  • Discussions with friends
  • Sisterhood
  • Cuddles
  • Sage smudging
  • My 15yo neighbor who came to teach me how to knit
  • My birthday day
  • People finding the Light
  • My Mom
  • Time in my Teal Studio
  • Painting
  • Family vacation planning

And you, what fills your Gratitude Bucket ? think of the small, teeny tiny, bigger things that brings you joy, laughter, grace. What are they ? Feel it in your bones, in your heart. Let it invade your whole body. It is good, isn’t it ?

thanks

Tomorrow is my birthday. And I know it is so weird for some people, but I love birthdays and look forward to mine all year long ;) If my husband reads this, know I am aware of how difficult it is for you, because I love surprises and it is not easy to manage.

It is time for me to kind of list, more or less privately, what 28 had taught me. what are the lessons. and also what I wish 29 will bring… but for now,

This week, I am thankful for:

  • Working on my business with my husband
  • Having finally launched Soul Deck, and for the people who signed up
  • School starting next Monday, two weeks after it was supposed to
  • 90s R&B music
  • Birthday flower and presents received already, unexpected
  • Hot baths
  • Magical Sisterhood
  • Talking to my brother on the phone
  • Smoothies for dinner, salads for lunch, and all in between
  • Beautiful and powerful gemstones
  • Heart to heart talks (with my Mom, and with my Husband)
  • Releasing tears
  • The Sunshine will still had earlier this week
  • The very good customer service from FitBit.

Tell me, what is on YOUR list ?

My girls are still not at school, we will start the 5th week of teachers’ strike and the light at the end of this tunnel is nowhere to be seen (I kindly invite you, if you feel called to, send some positive energy so it resolve as soon as possible), so not a lot of art is being made right now and I miss it like crazy !

In this whirlwind, I take this time just for me, and writing it here helps on where I put my focus, where I put my energy.

This week, I am thankful for:

  • Sunshine
  • Sisterhood
  • Time on the phone with my bro Thomas
  • My husband, and his love and help
  • Smoothies for dinner
  • The tv show Grimm
  • Help
  • All the sushi and agedashi tofu I have had in the past three weeks
  • White sage, magical oils, and gemstones
  • Wearing my wedding rings again at my fingers (lost a lot of weight, they were slipping, so I have been wearing them around a chain for months)
