Tell me: What are YOU thankful for in your life?

Recommended Posts

In my experience, when I focus on the things I'm thankful for, the things I had been complaining about lose their power and fall away. Focusing on the things in my life that are already amazing (and maybe taken for granted) allow them to come back to my mind and heart in full force. So in honor of today being Thanksgiving, what are YOU thankful for?

I'm thankful for all of you, our beautiful community of conscious, aware, heartfelt people who help one another through tough times and celebrate our humanity together. I'm thankful for my amazing group of friends (both locally and long-distance) who I feel so intimately connected with — it's absolutely unreal the friendships I have in this world. I'm thankful for my mom and dad living close and having such a tight and loving relationship with them. I'm thankful for having a home that I love so much in a city that has access to such lush nature (I'm about to go on a walk by the creek after I finish this post). I'm thankful that I am living passionately in the world, with my heart wide open. I'm thankful for the sad times where my heart doesn't feel so open where I allow myself to be alone and heal. I'm thankful for my romantic relationship that is now over and all the lessons it taught me about myself and about loving another human being. I'm thankful that we are still such close friends and can support each other so maturely in our breakup. I'm thankful that she has found someone new who she feels so loved by and whom she loves so much. I'm thankful for my awareness of my own jealousy around that. ;) I'm thankful for my brother loving his college experience so much and being soooo blissed out in love (wow! He deserves so much of that). I'm thankful for the tearful conversation my brother and I had just last night that reconnected us together in such a beautiful way. I'm thankful that I have such easy access to my range of emotions that allows me to feel my life deeply. I'm thankful that I feel so alive. I'm thankful that I am free to pursue whatever it is I want to pursue in my life. I'm thankful that I have the courage to live life fully. I'm thankful for this life that I get to enjoy fully until my very last breath ...

I'm thankful for suffering and hard times that teach us how to be more human, how to love and how to truly savor and appreciate our times of joy.

 

I am thankful for the gift of being a mother to the two most amazing human beings God ever dreamed. It is my privilege to love, serve and guide them toward their own dreams. I am shamelessly broken open by my love for them. And I believe that love is a reflection of divine Love that is always present for me, no matter what I have done, or left undone. And there are no words to express my gratitude for that.

 

I am thankful for my healthy, strong body that can take my soul around this world and allow me to connect with others on a physical level. A hug just when I need it most. A hand to hold when I am afraid. A gentle squeeze of my shoulder when I am weeping over a loss. Those physical expressions of love are so precious to me now while I learn to love my body again and trust someone else will too. Those kinds of touch re-connect me to the gratitude I need to marvel again at this gift of life.

 

I am grateful for my job. It isn't what I planned, but it has shown me my strengths and more often, my weaknesses. It has taught me to return to what I know over and over again about what is true. It has freed me from the prison of dependence upon the approval of others for my sense of peace and made me brave enough to shine my light, even if that light exposes darkness. It has given me perspective I did not have working on my own for so long.

 

I am grateful for my tribe. My friends and family. Those I see day to day and my friends here. I am on the receiving end of an embarassing riches of love and support. I am surrounded by a cloud of witnesses to my victories and my losses. Their love is always there, reminding me I've got nothing left to prove.

 

I am grateful for each of you here, ones I "know" and ones I have yet to know who show me the meaning of the word resilience. Thank you for showing up for me. It means more than you could ever know.

Today I am thankful for the continual eye opening of just how much I have to be thankful for. For the "riches" in my life that I have taken for granted and for the trials in my life that have been opportunities to make me stronger and connect with who I really am. I have two beautiful children who have challenged me in ways that have made me stronger and more accepting and loving, I have a wonderful supportive family who remain strong in the face of heartaches and trials, and I have faith and belief and hope that continues to grow and evolve. I am thankful for the provision that meets me every day and for the dreams and passions for life that are yet to be revealed in me and my life experience. Gratitude for life breathed into dead spaces....

 

Also thankful for the powerfully beautiful words of your gratitude Kristin ... eye and heart opening!!!

 

Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm thankful for being able to talk and get support with people on this site. Because of this site I've been able to tell my kids and not be in fear of what they think. They all were very understanding and my daughter actually was mad I hadn't told her earlier because she would have been more careful out there. I guess sometimes things that at first look bad are actually gifts not only to ourselves but to others.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Oh so many things to be thankful for...just being able to write this and share gratitude, along with my struggles and wisdom, love and pain with all of you is huge. To still be in the world when so long ago 6 months was all I was given. That some of the things I have learned through a lot of struggle I can pass on and help others.

 

To have not planned to be a mother and then be given three amazingly beautiful surprises who have turned out to be my best gifts. I have so much gratitude about how much I learned from their father...and that depsite the sadness of ending my marriage I am still thankful that I chose to trust myself rather than deal with a partner whom I couldn't trust.

 

I even thank my disfunctional family relationships in that they have shown me the destruction of jealousy and resentment...and they aren't emotions I want in my life. I have learned to not take things personally, to love even when it doesn't come back.

 

I am sooooooo thankful for living in a country where I can climb a mountain and walk on a beach all in the same day if I want to. Where I can find places to enjoy being alone and be in awe of the universe.

 

I am thankful for my health...H is only a small part of it really. I have a strong body that can move freely and I can delight in being able to dance. To experience joy every day from that is something I treasure.

 

For the last 25 years before I go sleep I go through my 'list' of things to be thankful for...when I started this ritual couldn't think of one because I was so scared of dying....now I can find so many things every day (even on the sad days). And the funny thing is the universe gives me more.

 

So yes I am celebrating gratitude with you all my lovely H friends..I am so glad I found you, that we connect and love each other invisibly but powerfully. And I thank YOU Adrial, for your vision, your commitment and your love to make this community happen.

 

Happy Thanksgiving everyone :-) xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
