Yesterday, I was nominated by my brave and talented friend Jenna Soard, to share a list of 3 things that I am grateful for over 5 days. Thanks again Jenna for your inspiration!
Today is Day 2.
I felt this list rising in me really late last night and my heart swells as I type these words again: My gratitude is underlined in the paragraphs below and listed below that:
There are some days when I am so exhausted from work that I have to take a nap.
When I wake from that nap I’ll have a burst of inspiration that carries me into more research, notes or writing projects in new areas I was never expecting to enter.
When asked about what I do for a living. Its hard to give just one answer. Because I am lots of things to many people.
And It’s not really just a job I do to get paid. Most of the time I feel like there is this higher force of compassion and intelligence that is working through me, guiding and directing my body to accomplish the tasks at hand. And I am just the conduit by which this directive is to be completed.
I feel like I am working on my Masterpiece. I feel and I know God. Every single day. It’s so staggeringly REAL and intense and scary sometimes but I remain forever grateful and blessed to be the conduit for this force of LIFE and continue to stay on course with focus, healthy drive and clear determination.
I am grateful for:
One: Naps. And for having the courage and faith to know that my drive, passion and talent will not only remain after my nap/break/playtime is finished but is also strengthened by this small gift of self compassion.
Two: For knowing how to trust myself, body, heart, mind and soul on my life’s journey, every step of the way. I remain open to hearing, feeling and just knowing exactly what I am supposed to do next.
Three: For the knowledge that I am indeed working on my Masterpiece in this lifetime. I am in the process of transforming the pain and the strife from my own human experience into something that is both beautiful and useful for all of us. Because we deserve to be happy and to receive a reward for surviving the BS in this world. This is my gift to myself and my gift to you.
Powerful stuff and I am honored to be able to share this with you 🙂
