Living Life On Purpose
Today is November 1! Welcome to the month of Thanksgiving. It is the month of giving "thanks" and gratitude.
Years ago, a friend and spiritual leader, Betty Strohm, suggested the practice to me for writing down 3 things nightly that I was grateful for from that day. I found it to be a wonderful practice.
A daily practice of writing creates a connection to that which we are focusing on. It prompts the rising up from within, thoughts and feelings which we may not have given the voice to previously!
I invite you to consider such a daily practice during the month of November, in regards to your parenting. WHAT ARE YOU GRATEFUL for as a parent...today? Sometimes, it's easy to see what you are grateful for and others times it might be very difficult. During such times, if you can find the "littlest
piece to be gratitude for, it can help the goodness to expand.
This week I had such an opportunity and actually remembered to do this in regards to a personal issue! I pulled a couple of muscles in my body last week and was in much pain. Then one day, I stood up and found I was pain free for that moment! I rejoiced! AND at that moment I did remember to focus on that moment of being painful. Today, I'm delighted to say that I'm 95% pain free!
I'm going to end today's blog with my gratitude's as a parent for three amazing young adults. Even though, they are all grown and live amazing lives, I'm delighted to say, I continue loving being their MOTHER!
1. I am grateful that I continue to have a wonderful connection with each of my children.
2. I am grateful that my former husband and I email with all our children on a weekly basis about the serious side of life as well as the light side of life.
3. I am so grateful that each of my children have found meaningful work in the world.
4. I am so grateful that I love being a mother today as much as I did when they were newborns.
I would LOVE to hear your gratitude's! Please feel free to post them here or email me directly through my website.
with much appreciation for YOU and all your parenting....
