This month I undertook a challenge to take photos relative to a new word every day and share that on instagram……I have been moved and motivated by what I felt come up for me in this process.
Todays photo was “yourself” …I looked at this photo and felt the innocents of my thoughts the acceptance of my life, the opportunity before me and the experiences yet to come…
If only we could reflect on these elements of life more often and choose to take part in these again…as I’m sure if we did we would all begin to experience the life we came here to live.
In loving memory of those that have played a part in my life and loved me because…”I am”
I am grateful for the life I know…the perspective I have and the experiences within it.
A simple rose, out of the blue changed the view i held at a point in time. I was touched by the thought, the act, and the engagement it offered.
Not to take anything away from this…I sat back and looked at why I felt so inspired by and I discovered it was only my own perception of life without the rose that had made me feel this way in the first place.
I will look at the world in quite a different way through this discovery and I will be a better person through the rose..not because if it.
I am grateful for the gift
Today I gratefully acknowledge the ebb and flow of life. I am grateful for my opportunity to choose my path and I am grateful for
the consistent change that allows me to redefine the actions I choose to take in each moment.
The starting and stopping of these actions is part of human nature. I am accepting this more in myself everyday and I am grateful for the growth through awareness.
I am grateful for the breathing space I give myself to allow my feelings to flow as they need to, and to direct my energy wisely.
Exploring my own thoughts, feelings, frustrations, anxieties, and fears has lead me to the awareness of the intensity of emotion I express due to my own unique reaction to the world in which I live.
This emotion when channelled into the right cause can move mountains, and more than often does, but when it is expressed in the moment of reaction it can crate a tidal wave of concern for all in its path.
I have learnt to breathe, to meditate, and to take time out to consider the absolute determination of the emotion.
I have learnt a lot through the consequential response, and in the same breathe I have learnt to acknowledge that all that I have said and done its as in was meant to be.
Awareness and acceptance, sorting the wood from the trees, involves a delicate balance of heart, soul, body and mind.
I am grateful for the people who share my world and who encourage me to dream all that I can be in my life
Think big, dream loud, be courageous and inspired, to be all that you can be for the enhancement of yourself and all of mankind
By being the unique you in this world we are all able to add value to others lives and contribute to a better world to live in.
What a wonderful opportunity I have been given to share my life with all those around me.
Who can you acknowledge today and thank for helping you on this journey through life?
I am grateful for the lessons I am able to share with others on my journey through life.
To live with the vision of a new day and all the wonder that it brings, is one of the most significant lessons that I have learnt.
To be inspire by the dawn with the wonder of what the new day will share is a place to live in the “now” and be all you can be.
In that moment your vision for scenes like these show up on your doorstep.
All you have to do is believe.
I am grateful for the calm I am able to see in the beauty of nature around me.
The context of the days thoughts are never so clear as when they are compared with the rationalisation of the greatest fear that is being represented.
In doing this for myself and getting to the root cause of my issues I am able to make specific decisions about the eyes through which I want to acknowledge my world.
Be the calm for yourself and others and enjoy each moment for what they can truly be.
I am grateful for the knowing that moments of sadness and emotion are meant to move us into new directions and behaviours to grow into the people we become.
The dawning of a new day, new idea, new philosophy and new habit, all primarily begin with the unravelling of the old into an awareness of where we have been.
The moments of emotional intensity that these sometimes bring, although uncomfortable are some of our greatest opportunities to grow as human beings.
Be grateful to be human and to experience emotion, remembering the greatest heights cannot be fully understood without knowing the greatest depths.
I am grateful for the ever changing scenery and outlook that I acknowledge on my journey.
Awareness is the first step to change and understanding that this is what is happening, to you, around you, or even within you, is in itself a real personal achievement.
Today I looked to find where my perceived failing may be a new lesson in the person I am becoming and in doing this I humbled myself to accept it for all that it is….an act of being human.
I am grateful for the people in my life that are helping me to see these things for the lessons I need right now. I am truly growing.
I am grateful for the light shed on my day and all the beauty of the thoughts, actions and people within it.
Taking the time to reflect on the truly successful parts of the day helps focus on the moments that make you fulfilled.
At the end of the day I want to know that I have contributed to the lives of those around me; strangers or friends.
So I reflect, I acknowledge, and I celebrate all that is and has been today.
