I dislike judging or shaming of others. It drives me up a wall when someone generalizes behavior based on one or two experiences. People are human and make mistakes! Be Kind, you never know what someone is going through. This is something I want to throw out to the universe!!
Also want to echo what many have said. I am, grateful for this site and all that reflect here : )
I can and I did. My husband and I have been having serious health issues and he was in the hospital for a few days. Two of his (grown) children came to give emotional support and badly needed and greatly appreciated help with household chores etc. I was able to tell them how grateful I am for them being part of my life.
The old Franciscan blessing to all of my friends here and elsewhere – May the Lord bless you and keep you. May He turn His face on you and give you His peace and His joy and His love and His protection. May He be with you now at this hour and every moment of your life at the moment when you close your eyes in order to open them to Him to His glory. May He be with you. May He bless you.
Thank you to everyone here who participates. Your honesty, truths, & heart felt responses are much appreciated by me. Your words often guide me on my own life journey & are inspiring me to do better, to be better.
Does it need to be said?
Does it need to be said by me?
Does it need to be said by me now?
Nothing comes to mind. However, I did think of two words I say to myself often: Be Kind!
I say most things that are on my mind
these days. In fact, I talk too much.
Today I would like to say less and
listen with intention.
There are many deep thoughts, too deep to even bring up! I have stuffed much and find this very hard to even think about. It is easy to express gratitude and compassion but not so much the hurts I have put on my self or others. So “the could” in the question is given me permission to hold it back again.
Must say that today’s thread of responses has been both affirming & liberating for me. Namaste, all.
I need to put into writing a few tender childhood memories that one of my older brothers played the primary role. As he continues his cancer treatments, I think he’d want to know. I know I want him to know. A different way of saying thank you to him, while I can.
This is so lovely, Carla. What a precious gift you’ll be giving to him and to your self – to make another loving connection. May his journey go well.
Touching response, Carla. Thank you.
I’m sorry for having been so selfish, narrow minded and greedy. I can see now after letting go of burden that I have done things to hurt myself and others. It wasn’t even intentional it was out of a selfish self centred mind that I thought I was right.
I’m grateful for seeing this selfishness/ self centred mind and I’m grateful to let it go. I’m sorry to my family, to my friends, to everyone and anyone that I have caused harm to in any way. Thank you for listening.
Give yourself credit for how well you manage the challenges in your life.
Thank you for this website and everyone who puts it all together.
Thank you to all the participants who have made this a daily ritual and helping me be true to myself .
What a fantastic question! As I ponder the question, I’m not sure if it makes me disappointed or pleased. Disappointed because I tend to speak what’s on my mind regularly, so I don’t have anything to say that’s been building up waiting to be said, so perhaps that’s a good thing?
Life is a precious, wonderous miracle. I have squandered it at times. I do not plan on squandering anymore of this gift that I have been given.
