“As much as we need a prosperous economy, we also need a prosperity of kindness and decency.” ~ Caroline Kennedy
Gratitude: Safe trip to the mountains
Joy: A bright sliver of a moon that seemed to follow us in the darkness.
Awareness: Stressors seem to dissipate as we slip out of the city and into a starlit night.
Creativity: Stacking wood…yep, there’s an art to it; that’s my story and I’m sticking to it!
Gratitude: Things accomplished for my mom, time with her and my MIL, grateful for a relative who is a neighbor who checked my mother’s property. She had a prowler while we were visiting with my MIL. It’s always good to know there is someone who can be there in less than two minutes if needed. Fabulous fall weather and colors in the mountains.
Joy: Spending the day with hubby and Oldest, message from my niece telling me how much she is enjoying her stained glass classes
Awareness: Never underestimate how much your presence can lift someone’s spirits.
Gratitude: Hubby and Oldest got a few other things done for my mom and I had visiting time with her. Fabulous fall weather and colors in the mountains.
Joy: Talking to Youngest on the phone, a new book on my kindle…yay for reading time!
Awareness: In business you will come across people who will do anything to avoid working and then you will meet those who go the extra mile to make sure your needs are met.
Creativity: Research for a project
Gratitude: Headache is now gone! My aunt was able to fill in some blanks in a story where I couldn’t remember what my dad told me…write those stories down while you remember them!
Joy: A super happy cat that I am home! Went to book club to find out it’s next week, bwahaha. Well, it opened up my night for reading, so I’m happy!
Awareness: Judgments are often made from the outside looking in and are quite often inaccurate. Most of us know this as we have been on both sides, and yet we continue to do so.
Creativity: Studying stained glass, reading about writing
Gratitude: the right to vote, freedom
Joy: a night to read and enjoy a glass of wine
Awareness: No matter which way the election goes, at least it’s over. It’s time to move on, repair relations, lead with love. Be the example you want to see.
Creativity: Stained glass, writing
Gratitude: a light workday, reading time, dinner, quiet evening at home, early bedtime,
Joy: hot shower, cup of hot tea, talking with a friend who makes me laugh
Awareness: When you focus on the moon you neglect to see the beauty and power of the stars and vice versa. Open your eyes and take in the celestial masterpiece. I must remember focusing on one thing prevents me from seeing the whole picture.
Gratitude: friends, family, people with character and class (a bit disappointed with those who’ve jumped to social media spreading vitriol, especially saddened to see this done by people who are self-proclaimed light workers)
Joy: People who spread the light
Awareness: Temper tantrums don’t change outcomes; positive actions better humanity and the world.
