Good morning and happy Tenacious Tuesday!
As we are in the week of Thanksgiving, I’m finding it important NOW, more than ever to REALLY express the gratitude I feel. I practice this EVERY day. I write in my gratitude journal and I say things out loud, like, “OH MY GOSH! I am so GRATEFUL for this beautiful sunrise and the ability to see it!” And “I am so grateful for my beautiful bionic beating heart!” And “I am so grateful for the awesome humans in my life!” Because I have been practicing this each day for quite awhile, it’s simply become part of me and who I am and how I choose to see what is.
How about you? What are you grateful for?
Let’s make today AWESOME! Cheers! ☕️❤️☕️
Good morning and HAPPY Feel Good Friday!
Starting today off with this quote from The Grinch, “To Kindness and Love, the things we need the most!”
The Grinch began with a heart too small, but even he could not hold back after being seen, cared for, and loved.
For today’s encouragement, please consider doing what makes you feel good. And while you’re at it (doing what makes you feel good) I want to encourage you to take a few moments to reflect upon it. Whether it’s jotting it down in a journal with pen to paper, capturing it in a notepad on your phone, or a full on write up or post, take time to reflect!
I’d love to hear how this impacts your day today! Wishing you a great day ahead! Cheers! ☕️❤️☕️
Upon seeing The Grinch movie yesterday afternoon and hearing Cindy Lou speak these words to the Grinch, “because you’ve been alone long enough” it literally caused my eyes to fully well up with tears before I could even notice. And once I realized the magnitude of this statement and how it was landing on my heart, I had dreams of tears now running down my cheeks.
Thinking about this statement more today and reflecting on my feelings about it, I think this is a beautiful reminder to forgive. That hurt happens. That mistakes happen. And with all of that, forgiveness can also happen.
Something to consider today, from both sides of the story, how will you grow through the challenge?
Think of times when you have hurt someone, what did you learn?
Then, think of times when someone has hurt you, what did you learn?
The details are not all in the actions, they are also in the spaces and time in between the actions, the time that can be chosen to be built in to reflect, learn, and GROW through it.
As always, we’ve got this ONE Precious Life! Cheers! ❤️☕️❤️
This is what COURAGE and BRAVERY looked like in my world yesterday. It was the Masonator feeling scared to get his cast off, being told it wouldn’t hurt, yet not really knowing. He expressed his fear and worked through it! I told him “it’s okay to be scared.” And “being scared doesn’t me we don’t do it”. He did it! He actually giggled his whole way through it after the process of removing his cast was explained to him. He said “it really just tickles.” Mason’s left arm is about 80% healed and will continue to heal on his own with no cast or splint. The doctor asked that he be careful for a few weeks (though “being careful” does not really resonate with this 5 year old) and follow up with another X-ray in 3 weeks.
I am amazed by his courage and bravery and grateful I got to be right by his side to witness it.
Happy Thoughtful Thursday!
