to say yes to a lifetime dream of a studio, which I envision as a shared space for fellow travellers to find inner stillness, peace, to find and express their/ our voices. It is dedicated to my dear mother, who lost her voice and inner/ outer footing in life and was unable to recover it during her lifetime. She moved on to her next life ten years ago this August.
Also, learning and practicing to take things one breath, step and day and a time … and to make the best of whatever happens. Somehow things all seem to work out… unless they don’t. In that case, the learning/ recovery/ course correction begins …:-)
To make an effort to change my mindset/care for myself….so that I can be more present and better with my family/life.
To move from my lovely little apartment, due to exacerbated tension between me and my landlady during the pandemic.
It was stressful and required determination and this new place is not ideal, but it got me out of an untenable situation, and I accomplished it within a few weeks “with a little help from my friends” as the song goes…
To stay open where I might have a tendency to close up in order to transform possible fixed ideas.
The decision to move closer to my grandchildren so I can be here to know them and watch them grow.
They are so blessed to have you!
To keep going! To rewire my reations to Covid catastrophes. To respond with vision, compassion, and by spitting nails well-timed nails.
To bring increased focus on strengthening my immune system.
My job share and I decided to live our work lives by the mantra “we can only do what we can do”. It doesn’t mean we stop striving to give our absolute best (and more) but it means we recognise we have limitations, often beyond our control, and that we don’t beat ourselves up if we don’t achieve everything we hoped for.
To stop stressing out about things in the middle of the night.
Retirement. Getting the covid shots. Visiting family afterwards.
To move in with my partner. It’s opened up a whole new world of shared experience and personal growth….. A few years ago I was living with my ex and was unhappy… I’m grateful for the steps I took to make changes to my life.
Participating in the inspiring and practical 6 week Wake Up Grateful course offered by the fine team behind this site.
Getting vaccinated for Covid, and encouraging others to do so, even transporting a couple of people to get vaccinated.
One of my African American friends was afraid – understandably so. I told him I would be supportive either way he decided, and just helped him with the known facts and data. In the end he chose to, and I’m so proud of my friend because I know how hesitant he was, but he did it out of love for his family. 🙂
We may never know what lives we save by getting vaccinated, but those lives are still precious.
Thank you, Holly – and I should resume wearing my mask in stores, because I can get the Delta variant, even tho I’m vaccinated. It would be a mild case, but do I want to get even a mild case of covid??
Yes, resume wearing a mask.
Bless you for doing that! At least some of the Olympiads who have come down with Covid in Tokyo this week were vaccinated (as reported on CNN and BBC). Vaccination certainly improves our situation, but vaccinated folk who become infected can transmit, too. However remote the possibility, I don’t wish to cause harm. If you are interested, here is a link from the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization on the subject of vaccinated transmission of Covid:
I’m remembering it now in my heart, and offering thanks to God for the courage and love to make the decision I did.
To leave a toxic relationship. And more importantly, to do so with forgiveness for the things he’s done to me and the people I care about.
Good for you! I know how hard that is to do, but also how it feels on the other side. Hugs to you!!
Oh Nelson! I know that must have been very difficult for you. Good on you!!!!!!!!
