Hi girls loving to share our gratitudes
I have a big smile on my face.
Grateful for EFT - so grateful. I am now in week 3 and it is continuing to work. It is still amazing me that it does work, I dont quite believe it yet..... So hoping it is going to continue. However if not, it has helped me through the last days of another difficult period.
Grateful for everything that has gone down this last 7 or 8 months now.
Grateful that I couldnt see where I was going, and that no matter what I did it seemed to make things worse
Grateful to now see the necessity for it. Grateful for the blessing of it.
Praying for the grace not to lose sight of HOW necessary it was that I see things as they really are.
Grateful for leaving the fantasy world behind and stepping out here and taking my place in the world. Praying for the grace to continue to do this. Know I cannot do it alone.

Tuesday gratitudes,
Taking my granddaughter to school and playing with my grandson
Feeling more energetic today
Cool temperatures and cloudy skies
A thermos of hot coffee made by my husband this morning before I left home to babysit

I try to hold fast to the truth that a full and thankful heart cannot entertain great conceits. When brimming with gratitude, one's heartbeat must surely result in outgoing love, the finest emotion that we can ever know. AS BILL SEES IT

Today I'm grateful to be blessed with another day of life. As Wispy so eloquently shared, most of my problems are of my own making, due to my reactions to life. When I respond and take responsibility for everything, I'm on more solid ground.

Grateful for a deeper understanding that pain, problems and difficulties really are all part of growth and healing
Grateful to be feeling all these events that are continually given is in fact to gift of freedom
Grateful to realsie for the first time, they dont come and then forever peace
Grateful to at last understand this is life out of the cage
Grateful that this is living - reality - acceptance of the process of life without trying to escape
Grateful to realise that whatever comes is originated within myself.
Ive heard it, read it and tried to believe it.
Today I am so grateful to know it. It is my story and complaining about anything else stops me looking at myself
Praying for the grace to remember it and not forget it with the next problem that comes up. emoticon

emoticon Beachlvr for the reference to Spring Forest Qigong!

I'm having a hard time feeling grateful today because of the vertigo. I'm trying to get my mind to be grateful for it because it must be some kind of lesson. But after a two day bout 2 weeks ago when I couldn't even get out of bed, then a cold, and then a fall that sprained my right ankle, knee & calf ... I would just pray to be restored to health so I can cope with the rest of the disasters in my life!

So, I'm grateful
--that I got the copay issue on my new Medicare sorted out & have most of my meds refilled
--the sun is shining -- scary to try to walk on wet sidewalks with a sprained ankle--for my friend Juanita who cheerfully took me to the doctor
--for my friend Robyn who cheerfully gives me rides & who is helping me with the big project for the Scottish club
--for my niece, who helps me in so many ways, and who is all infectious laughter & giggles - she always brightens up my day
--for Dramamine, which helps a little
--for all the other blessings in my life -- they are so many!

Greetings everyone......As I think about my life today I find I'm grateful....

* that I have a comfortable home providing shelter and warmth on these cold rainy days.
* that I have outlets and support in expressing and developing my creativity.
* and that my new mower is on the way and I can finally start working on the jungle I call a yard

Grateful today for feeling as well as I do
Grateful for sunshine
Grateful for Agency sending someone round to help
Grateful that hopefully something useful is going to happen as a result
Grateful that no matter what happens I am in safe keeping and only what needs to come to me, will come to me - whatever the reason. Maybe karma working itself out. I do believe God is Justice, so no matter what - In everything give thanks.
I am not good on roller coasters, perhaps this is why I seem to be in this position. emoticon

My mom spent the weekend with us and while she was here spending time with us I was thinking that I am so grateful that at her age she is still in relatively good health and is still independent.
I'm grateful that my husband enjoys her company as much as I do and helps to ensure that her visits are a pleasant experience for all.

Grateful for discovering a Clivia in bloom..... they come out much later in the winter/spring usually.

Map too small to see, so not sure what the colours mean. The red look "bad".
Thinking you are in that Red area that sure looks very offensive.

Grateful for a new day
Grateful for the rain also
Grateful for finding a way that looks like it is going to help my neck
Grateful for the friend who suggested it
Grateful that no matter how things seem.... all there is is God

I am grateful today that the decision to do nothing and just let go seems to be the answer that is working out
I am grateful that two major issues appear to have been taken care of, one yesterday and the other today
I am grateful this seems like the handiwork of The One, as one door after another has been closing with all the things that were facing me
I am grateful that letting go and letting God and actually doing none of the things I thought I had to do to take care of myself - is the right answer
It seems too good to be true - my trust is very shaky it seems when "good" things happen. I am more trusting when it comes to accepting the negative stuff
Feeling very grateful today, for the respite of the last two days, and if it is the end of this current period of painful learning - the feeling will be one of enormous gratitude that I can rest for a bit emoticon

Grateful today for the last couple of hours with Meg. I have so enjoyed her being with me these few weeks
Grateful for slowing down and taking time to make decisions rather than going things like a bull at a gate
Grateful to be willing to wait for guidance as to what to do next
Grateful for one door after another being closed

Today I am grateful for the understanding of my absolute powerlessness yet again
It is such a slow letting go for me I have thought so many times my life is surrendered
The reality is each new stage of life, in fact lately it seems to be almost every day something new arrives
It is my blindness to all the things I want to hang on to and the deep unwillingness to let go of them when I do see them that causes so much pain
Today I am grateful for the understanding a little more of reality
I am grateful for the head knowledge that this path I am is the right path for me
Indeed, the only path. The actual choice over one's own life is such an illusion
I am grateful that the illusion is disappearing
I am grateful that I know to be grateful - the feelings of actual gratitude may take some time. emoticon

I have realized that I have not been appreciating; no, to be honest, have not been thinking about or acknowledging all of the blessings that I have in my life. I have decided that I will be making it a practice to spend some time each day thinking about and acknowledging all the things that I have to be grateful for.

I'm grateful that I was able to take my mom on an outing yesterday.....shopping and lunch in Eugene, OR.
I'm grateful that I have maintained good health as I have grown older.
I'm grateful that I have someone in my life to share a conversation and early morning cup of coffee with.
I'm grateful for this opportunity to move forward to improve my mind and spirit.

Thank you - you are such a good friend.

Indeed, this morning so grateful for the rain again, I know Ive said it before, but I LOVE being out in the rain :)
Grateful for the soft moist dark rich earth as I did some weeding
Grateful to be seeing the greenness of the plants with and the texture of the bark paths
Grateful for a wonderful log fire I found last night on You Tube. A real one that actually burns down as you watch.... not a loop. A real fire in virtual reality with real sound.
Also grateful for finding a real rainstorm. The loops just dont do it for me. emoticon

My gratefulness for today comes with a lovely fine mist this morning. Everywhere was so beautiful
Grateful for a new aspect on the number of things that have gone wrong in my life since maybe September or October
Grateful to have read a blog site, quite by chance (but of course I dont believe in chance) where this place in the journey turns out to be normal and just a stage of the healing
Grateful I am able to accept this - because I am already seeing it is coming from "reality"
Grateful at last to have become willing to face and hopefully keep working through to the other side of the blocks.

Hi there Izzy, like the words on your profile pic.

Today I am grateful for having completed my walk when no part of me wanted to go
Grateful for being able to share with friends who understand and care
Grateful to discover I am not free to express my anger because of fear
Grateful to discover that Toxic Shame has so many faces
Grateful for a new day

Hard pushed today - feeling very sorry for myself - not a good way to be - "suck it up buttercup" as a friend on Spark says. :)
I am grateful for learning the honesty to tell it how it is
I am grateful for guided meditation tapes when I need them
I am grateful for the fact that I can get someone to help me at home
I am grateful that I can continue to live in my own home
I am grateful to be typing this gratitude list - last thing I felt like doing.The good news is just writing the gratitudes makes me feel better.
I am blessed and grateful just to be who I am where I am today
I am grateful to have a Higher Power who is Love - this is my choice to trust that everything works together for good, even when I dont feel like it.

Hi Kate, thanks for the info.

Today I am grateful for a wonderful walk in the rain first thing today. Got soaked loving it
Grateful to be dry and warm now at home
Grateful for latest lessons on computer that a web master gave me when I got stuck (whatever a webmaster is) :)
Grateful for the day to day life of ups and downs that come and go and learning from each new situation how to release of what "I" want and let what will be, be.
Grateful right now for a lovely glass of hot tea and the rain pattering down on roof

On this gorgeous emoticon emoticon emoticon Monday I have so much to be grateful for!

my friend Terry is well! His loss of vision wasn't permanent!

my PCP says he has a shot that will fix my knee & eliminate the need for a total knee replacement!

my recent 2 day dance with vertigo wasn't permanent!

my niece, who lives close to me & is always glad to come & help me out when I need it

my friend Mike, who brought me chicken soup, and Celtic sea salt, and good rye bread and a gizmo to help heal my knee when he heard I was sick

my new Firestick, which I emoticon , & which I think will give me the ability to give up cable (& the bill)

my sponsor, who gently guides me through my own self-constructed maze, and who is also always glad to come & help me out when I need it

my friends -- what would life be without friends?! emoticon

my little house, and sweet little yard -- trees still standing after such a wet, windy winter

my new laptop, which was an very unexpected gift!

books and music and libraries and blackberries, tea and coffee and 1/2 & 1/2

the loan of a convection oven & a Ninja cooking system, which together with my electric kettle will eliminate the need for 90% of my gas usage, now that PG&E has tripled & quadrupled its rates overnight without any advance warning

how far I've come towards Letting Go & Letting God

being willing to continue to struggle toward keto eating (extreme low carb -- think Super Paleo) and my friend Wispy's encouragement and shining example

I'm slowly getting caught up here on SP

in general, I'm more than grateful that although life is difficult at the moment, my old friend depression seems to be on vacation -- may he stay gone till the cows come home! emoticon

Loving the idea of Age Proof Life - If it is an article or a book where could I read this?

This morning I am grateful for washing the front gates - they so needed it
Grateful for beautiful brown pears mangos and bananas (shopping day yesterday)
Grateful for dehumidifiers - oh so grateful for dehumidifiers
Grateful for a fridge and deep freeze.
So many modern blessings I take for granted so easily
Grateful for Meg, my new (well not so new ) now caregiver, who is an earth angel. A friend of mine speaks of these a lot - must check it out.
Grateful to be always learning new things - must have been born a student. emoticon

Today I am grateful to find my face smiling, what a strange thing to say... I just noticed it...
I am grateful for my morning walk as always. Everywhere is so green after the much needed rain
Grateful for all the things that come up in my life these days - it seems somehow I have moved inward. Nothing much going on outward I guess.
Grateful for discovering so many new things that I never really thought about much
Grateful for a you tube thing I have discovered. Real rain falling. It is so lovely to listen to
I love the rain.

So grateful to be saying those words.
So grateful to be able to take myself with lightness and not criticism
I love my life..... so grateful for breathing right now.

Well interesting to me what I find myself grateful for today.

In another group I belong to the discussion turned to chlorinated/flouridated water against not doing so. I had no idea of the extend of damage these chemicals can do to the body along with all the other chemicals which are in our country's water supply. Upwards of 300 at the last testing.
Having then read above the highly elevated level of certain types of cancer from drinking water including these chemicals and the cost of using a specific type of water filter which is very costly - I come to my gratitude emoticon
I am grateful that my life and health are in the hands of my Higher Power,
Reading reports like these, used to terrify the life out of me. And for a moment I was going to get all hot under the collar and return to the conversation to get fully immersed in the different points of view.
Very grateful that God or common sense prevailed.
Grateful that my relationship with my Higher Power is far more important than any debate
Grateful for the peaceful life I am able to enjoy these days since I put my life in God's hands
Grateful that whatever comes I trust that whatever is exactly right is what will happen.

PS, Just realised what I am more than grateful for is that these days I am learning to face reality and how powerless I am over things I cannot change. I no longer need to have a polyanna attitude that everything is OK, in a worldy sense. Facing reality has always been the hard part for me.

Kali, I love the notion of not letting doubt build mountains. And Wispy, your reflections on the wily ways of the Ego were spot on. Thank you both for your insights.

Today I'm grateful for:
Crafting fun with my grandson
Singing with my granddaughter on the way to school
Peace and Patience with my health
A delicious loaded baked potato tonight for dinner

I try to hold fast to the truth that a full and thankful heart cannot entertain great conceits. When brimming with gratitude, one's heartbeat must surely result in outgoing love, the finest emotion that we can ever know. AS BILL SEES IT

Hi girls,

Today I am grateful for getting my walk in early - sometimes it is best done early!!
Grateful for this thread. A few of us were chatting earlier about gratitude and it made me realise that a thread like this is a great blessing. Every grateful thought fills me with happiness and keeps my mind on a positive track. Left to its own devices - it used to spiral down quite quickly into negativity.
Grateful to be realising so much more about the wily little ways of Ego and its ability to pull me away from any noticeable signs of happiness or joy. How strange a creature it is. It can catch us from any angle that is personally vulnerable. The only thing that seems to dispell it - is awareness of its presence and action. Seems it likes to work in the dark.

Just had the most lovely chicken soup with bread in it. I love that. So grateful

Hi there girls

Gratitude is flowing today. Feeling blessed to find an antidote in Humility - such a misused word
Grateful for blues skies, sunshine, warmth, low humidity, darling little white eyes eating the berries, cicadas singing in the trees, everything greening up again with the rain, good friends, and most of all this actual feeling of gratefulness and peace
