I am feeling grateful for my partner today. So very grateful. So loving. So supportive. So funny. So talented. You are exactly what I asked for. It has been so wonderful spending the last couple of days with you. I am delighted with you.
My intentions are just to be today.
Affirmations: I get exactly what I want. Always.
It has been eons since I have blogged on gratitude. It is not that I haven’t been grateful. It is just that I have kept life very simple – paring it down to the must do’s on most days. I have missed the practice, however. Here it is…
Today I am grateful for the miraculous awakening of my mom from her coma, my caring a capable siblings, my caring and generous co-workers, some time to move my body and do some self-care, that in my beloved I have a true partner who offers support, love, and friendship, renewed faith in faith and prayer.
Today I intend to do whatever comes next.
Affirmations: I receive everything I ask for. I acknowledge this with humility and gratitude.
Wow! It feels good to post on this again!
Today I am grateful for all who helped out and showed up for my 10th Anniversary Shin Dig, for getting to hang out with and vent to Lisa Thornsberry and then Lori, and Sarah, and Erika, for feeling inspired to do some hypnosis classes, for getting my tax stuff together (though I was grouchy as all get out by the end), for feeling inspired to somehow make time to move my body more, for date night.
Tonight I intend to fight this sore throat feeling, to enjoy Mezze's and date night, rest and relax.
Affirmations: Miracles are just around the next bend.
Today I am grateful for a new day, relaxing with my beloved, meeting his ex-in-laws and being treated well by them, a yummy steak dinner, an opportunity to hang out in the house this weekend and putter, have some of the heaviness of mood lift, that Jeevan is so fond of me.
Tonight I intend to sleep well and deep, awaken rested.
I am open to spiritual awakening.
I expect miracles to happen.
Today I am choosing to be grateful for my job, my boyfriend, my dilemmas, my angst, my weight gain, my cough, my car, my apartment, friends who visit me from far away, friends to take care of me close by, my feelings of having no time for myself, for writing, or for doing nothing. I am grateful for gratitude, for the realization I just need to be grateful for everything that is without labeling it good or bad.
Tonight I intend to enjoy the closeness of my beloved, sleep well and deep, awakened refreshed, eat light.
I go my best and let God take care of the rest.
I am not alone.
Everything will resolve the way it needs to.
I place all that I cannot control in God's hands.
Today I am grateful for the helpful people at CE Broker, getting many of my courses listed, finding out that I can offer CEs for the Thai course that Barry teaches, spending time with Christina, getting my notes almost done, the beautiful meal at Mezze's, running into Shannon and Sean, feeling so very loved and supported by my beautiful boyfriend.
Today I intend to be fully present for John, enjoy the Thai course, enjoy Bridget's company tonight.
I can do all things through Christ-consciousness which strengthens me.
Nothing is on my plate that I can't handle.
I deserve the love that I am experiencing and I receive it easily and willingly.
Today I am grateful for a great weekend celebrating Barry's birthday, the wonderful massage from Taos yesterday that makes me realize I need that more often, being able to share the Pema Chodron CD with Barry and growing spiritually together, understanding more fully the concept of shenpa and how it plays out in my life, feeling like I got a little break from the full tilt speed of my life, for friendships that endure over time.
today I intend to refrain from returning to full speed doing but to ease back into "real life", to be aware of shenpa and refrain from scratching, to do what can be done with ease and peace.
Affirmations: I can remain calm and peaceful regardless of the chaos around me and others' demands.
Today I am grateful for Barry being born 51 years ago, his mama teaching him how to cook, that our worlds collided in June 2012, for time to just hang out together this weekend, for the Pema Chodron CD that put a name to something I have been wondering about for years.
Today I intend to teach great yoga, enjoy the rest of my day hanging out with Barry and getting our massages, let go of my week – and many weeks – of too much work.
Affirmations: All is as it should be.
Today I am grateful for no more UTI or crazy stomach bloating, having new eyes on the creative programming at LRY, having an interested partner who actively protects me from myself (keeping me from over-committing, over-extending), old friends who I have gotten to see lately – Anne Gamache, Pamela Kokott, Bev Sturm, and tomorrow Chrissy May, all reminding me of who I am, girls nights, Christina Package and her willingness to organize girls nights.
Today I intend to keep my blood sugar steady and happy, be effective and efficient, give Colleen a check, enjoy girls night.
I have more than enough time, energy, and resources to be peaceful, successful, and happy.
I am loved deeply and gently. I love deeply and gently.
I always remember who I am.
Today I intend to do my best work, enjoy it, enjoy my lunch with Pam, get online to pay my sales tax.
Affirmations: I let myself be light, illuminating all that is around me. I let myself be light, creating space for joy to fill me and eminate from my being.
