Myself & the atmosphere around me.
I’ve been improving what and when I eat. May as well keep this body in reasonable shape. I can’t trade it in.
I am trying nourish my body through rest (and I need to think about nutrition and exercise) while also nourishing my soul through patience and reflection, and growing my faith through study of scripture.
Today it happened to listen to a dear friend and in listening, in being with my friend and in a way embracing the pain sensed and her allowing me to be with her in this, our friendship felt nourished.
Right now I am nourishing my “maker” self – finishing the knitted scarf for a friend, picking up the rug hooking project I designed, and later attending a novice pottery workshop. When the day began I was at loose ends, so grateful for these pastimes that focus and nourish me..
Indeed, Elaine – it’s wonderful when the ends get tied up. I decided to walk to the grocery store yesterday afternoon when my ends were loose, and just now I decided to read the newer posts for today’s question. Warm wishes to you. – 🤗
Thanks for your comment Mica. Hope this new day is nourishing 🙂
I can nourish the relationships I have now. I can stop thinking about what or who I don’t have and enjoy and nourish the people I have been blessed with and what a blessing they are.
Right now, I can nourish my body by making a commitment to run at least 5 times per week.
My thoughts 💭 of frustration and anger towards what’s happening in our country with the truckers protest. I can see how the far right groups are using this as a means to implement their agenda. One of the leaders is a know racist and white supremist. It is frustrating because how a minority of people are involved. It’s time to go for a long walk outside, meditate, be grateful for my blessings and don’t let things that you have no affect bother me. Focus on my own peace of mind and spread support and gratitude to others.
You’re in Canada, devy? I was so sad to read about that in my news magazine. It’s hard to strike a balance between caring about the world and not losing too much peace of mind over it, isn’t it, devy?
I am happy to have to had the realization that I need to believe in my dreams and in myself, and continue to show up and do the work everyday. No matter how hard the times are. I want to nourish this though and the insights that have come with it.
Water the garden. Walk the dog. Feel the pre-dawn breeze on my face by facing East at the waters edge. Dwelling in The Quiet.
relationship between anger and vulnerability
Right now I can nourish my own mental health. I can treat it like a dear special friend — with respect and tenderness.
My sweetheart and myself with bran muffins I’ll be taking out of the oven in a few minutes to eat steaming hot.
Our grey-striped tabby COVID kitten, now heading toward 2 years old, who stretches up to rest his paws against my leg and spread the pads out, telling me it’s his mealtime.
My daughters, dealing with their father’s lack of a will, debt-burdened estate, and an uncle who has forced a lawsuit on them–I’m supporting them in ways I hope nourish their growth as adults.
My staff who have worked so hard–I would say tirelessly except I know we’re all tired of the pandemic circumstances and yet know how fortunate we are to have steady jobs that let us telework. We face exciting yet terrifying possibilities for rapid growth so our team will be changing and I don’t want to lose what works well for a tiny team of 3. Today’s question is a reminder to take a few breaths, honor and talk about this.
I awoke feeling very grateful for this dreary, cloudy day. I gave myself a smile at the health I have, my surroundings and that I have a chance to make someone happy. I was nourished by these responses.
