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).
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
- 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
- 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 ?
Hi! I am a bit late – okay, 6 days late, but I made it within the week….
I am grateful that you are here bringing sunshine into my life.
I am grateful for the joy that I know is coming.
I am grateful for the job that is almost here, but no details.
I am grateful for the money that will be here soon
I am grateful for the transition time in my life. Had a great awakening this week – that most of my life was going to be lived within the void between where I started and where I want to end up. And that I needed to pay attention to that void, no matter how chaotic and scary it is. So I am trying to use my senses, look at the colors, feel the textures around me, pay attention to the sounds and the music, smell the fragrances and odors, taste the flavors of my life. My problem is that often I am not grounded, trying to life myself out of the void, and I lose touch and fall back into the void, injuring myself.
So I am minding the gap today.
Thank you for inspiring me, soul sister!
