If you can always smile at life, life will also always smile at you.
-- The Mother at Pondicherry

Good morning,

Half of my gratitudes *disappeared* when I posted so I'll try one more time. No less grateful, and here's why~~

~ it's a beautiful day

~ I have no disability and I feel strong and vibrant

~ I've set intentions for correcting inconsistencies that I want to work with

~ a SFriend and I are plotting cardio for every day of June, and I hope to set up a structure for us to check in with one another to support and encourage

~ though misunderstandings cause pain, I choose not to immerse myself in the drama, rather to use it as a springing board to work on myself

Blessed be,
xox
Maha

-Kitties sleeping close
-Friday (and payday); doesn't get much better than that
-Getting the lawn mowed in-between all the rain - a major feat lately
-A new month tomorrow; I love new beginnings

Make it an excellent day!!

Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.
-- Dennis Waitley

Good morning!

Hope to get back into regular posting when June rolls around tomorrow and I get Sprint off my back. Meanwhile, gratitude abounds~~

~ PJ party last night at friend's place in Little Rock

~ wonderful outpouring of love to friend at gathering last night over food, conversation and ritual to send her into her 31st year

~ hoping to go hiking at Pinnacle Mountain today with the Birthday Girl, after she gets back from a therapist appointment

~ labor-intensive recipe for birthday carrot cake was a success

~ dancing last night to Toots and the Maytals!

Blessed be,
xox

Reflecting on being grateful for...

- not being unhappy to be at work this morning
- having a solid good reaffirming ride on Jones last night
- potential new-to-me bbq
- enjoying looking at sky and clouds while I ran
- a funny little memory that popped into my head randomly of being a little girl sitting in the sun room/breakfast room, playing the piano and singing away, to songs from my mother's Judy Collins' songbook

This morning, I am grateful for:

-Shana's reminder about quitting smoking; I did the same June 26, 2001, after nearly 25 years of smoking (also since I was a teen) - and it was the hardest thing I ever did
-Sweet, silly kitties and our morning rituals
-B working on cleaning the deck up yesterday (until she saw a rather large snake) ... hmmm
-A solid night of sleep
-Good workout last night with B, each of us working on our respective goals
-Casual days at work, making morning time easier

Make it an excellent day!!

This morning I'm grateful...

- fresh fruit and left overs from dinner ready to grab for lunch today
- waking up exhausted this morning despite sleeping through the night, indicative that the ghosts were chasing me, but deeply grateful I wasn't awake to dwell and worry on it
- a walk this morning that cleared the cob webs and refreshed my mindset
- I successfully quit smoking cold turkey in Oct 2004, after 20 yrs of smoking (since I was a teen)
- the refreshing cold beer in the fridge in the barn last night, after I finished a tough ride, physically & mentally (at least it was a light beer!)

Though your destination is not yet clear
You can trust the promise of this opening;
Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning
That is at one with your life's desire.
-- John O'Donohue, from "For A New Beginning"

Good afternoon,

I'm damned by Sprint, with their corporate greed limiting my maximum connection card usage. I've gone over, but I'm continuing to post gratitudes (alternating the two sites) and tracking in spite of it. Some of my thankfulness includes~~

~ managing two days now of an energetic hour of cycling

~ having an AHA! moment on my bike this morning that has segued in *rite of passage* material I'm developing for a ritual tomorrow evening at GENKI_WARRIOR's birthday celebration

~ happy that I'm consistently tracking food, even though yesterday's intake was over-the-top; the honesty and staying in touch is going to result in meeting my goal if I stay with it

~ the mid-day community meditation at the county library today

~ listening over-and-over to Van Morrison's Astral Weeks, a mystical song cycle that touches me deeply

Blessed be,
xox

I recognize what I have to be grateful for...

- a day off yesterday
- a horse to go ride and a dog to accompany me
- a comfortable home
- breakfast on the porch, bathed in sunlight, with my dog and a great book
- freedom and choices

~S

Love all that has been created by God, both the whole and every grain of sand. Love every leaf and every ray of light. Love the beasts and the birds, love the plants, love every separate fragment. If you love each separate fragment, you will understand the mystery of the whole resting in God.
-- Fyodor Dostoevsky

Good morning all,

Happy to be back home and here among you~~

~ with Rebecca and R, great enjoyment of the spectacular moon over the last few days, especially enjoying its reflection on Lake Guntersville, further lighting up the night

~ drumming circle tonight...don't always go, but tonight feels right

~ beautiful day, calling for a bike ride

~ continuing to lighten -- in weight and in spirit

~ happy ending to housemate's lost cell phone

~ potential cat-sitting may materialize for a bit of needed income

Blessed be,
xox

We do not ask for what useful purpose the birds do sing, for song is their pleasure since they were created for singing. Similarly, we ought not to ask why the human mind troubles to fathom the secrets of the heavens. The diversity of the phenomena of nature is so great and the treasures hidden in the heavens so rich precisely in order that the human mind shall never be lacking in fresh enrichment.
-- Johannes Kepler

Good evening,

Here to recount some of my gratefulness~~

~ enjoying another lovely day with my friends

~ the Huntsville Museum of Art, and especially the extraordinary glass artist
Stephen Rolfe Powell

~ a tasty lunch in a school bus-become Mexican cafe!

~ sitting on the deck entering this, with glassy Lake Guntersville in the distance

~ first watermelon of the season being enjoyed...and it's DELICIOUS

Blessed be,

Lots of sorrow and a little joy.
Lots of joy and only a bit
Of sorrow.
Who can know
The formula beforehand?

We don't get to watch
While it's mixed. No one tells us
What's in it.
We lift it
To our lips - azure elixir
That burns our throats to crystal.

-- Gregory Orr

Good evening,

Much to be thankful for~~

~ Gregory Orr's gift

~ all night active advisory tornado watch Monday created a fair amount of anxiety for me and a fitful night of sleep, but I was nonetheless energetic and easily drove the seven hours to meet Canadian friends in Alabama

~always traveling with an ice chest, not only because I'm vegetarian, but also because of trying to eat healthy on the road

~ interesting conversation with tuned in and turned on people

~ lunch at Whole Foods, Birmingham with my friends today

Blessed be
xox
Maha


Strength does not come from physical capacity.
It comes from an indomitable will.
-- Mahatma Gandhi

Never eat more than you can lift.
-- Miss Piggy

This morning, I am grateful for:

-Sunshine streaming through my window this morning
-This perfect weather
-A safe roof over my head as I think about all of those in Oklahoma who have no homes left due to the tornado
-Waking up again this morning, as I think of those who lost their lives by the tornado
-Everybody who assists when disaster strikes
-My partner and my kitties, all safe and sound at home
-Out-of-town plans this weekend, that will include (weather-permitting) my first zipline experience, something I've always wanted to try

Make it an excellent day!!

This morning, I am grateful for:

-The sound of rain on the roof; a great way to wake in the morning and the rain is needed
-Free refills in our water gardens and rain barrels
-The sounds of the rain on our skylight, pitter-patter
-A great hike in the woods yesterday at my favorite spot (rated difficult in the hiking books so a really good workout to due to many sudden rises in elevation and hills through limestone bluffs)
-A great visit with friends yesterday, along with their typical wonderful array of food at a family birthday gathering
-The perfect rainy day for a massage this afternoon

Make it an excellent day!!

Stephanie
