Being Thankful is an art form. Seeing the positive things in life even in the most subtle of things takes some down time. Some stop and listen and look around time. When was the last time you just stopped and stood perfectly still and just made yourself aware of what is around you and think about how generous your life really is? Then acknowledge gratitude. Or if you must create gratitude. Even a homeless or jobless person can find gratitude in something. Some small act of kindness, or the brush of a breeze on their skin, the awareness of breath and the energy it brings racing through their body? These things we all share in life and are worthy of gratitude.
Today I am thankful that the bug who is threatening to take up residence in my chest is meeting up with some very healthy and determined immune cells who’s sole purpose is to irradicate the squatters from my body. I visualize this battle of good and evil. With a little help from me, my attitude, and willingness to get out of the way, letting my body rest, that the armies doing battle will have all the resources they need to win the battle in a timely fashion.
Paisano gets his coggins test done today, I am thankful that in light of the battle described above, Rebecca has once again offered to loan me her horse trailer to haul Paisano two blocks down the road to meet up with the vet. We were going to walk the distance. But in lue of what I just wrote above driving is a better deal I think.
I was writing about my great Uncle and my Dad yesterday. It hit me square in the heart how lucky I was that these men were in my life. I am so thankful for my Great Uncle Fred and my dad Frank Catalano, both have left this world behind, but they are right hear safe and sound in my heart.
Mastering the art of letting go is something to be thankful for as well. It frees the soul to grow to expand to fill the space that was once occupied by unnecessary trivia. As I prepare to pack for my move to Colorado I am letting everything go except what can fit into my truck. Only critter going with me is Dragon, the bearded dragon. He’ll ride shotgun and be my navigator… I hope we make it to Colorado? . It has taken some work on my part to let go of things that really mean very little to me but were must haves just in case. Like that monitor sitting over there that is a spare just in case this one gives up the ghost. I will be so thankful to see it go once and for all. See ya! hehe The more I simplify the happier I become. I am so thankful for this process and what I have learned from it and where it is taking me in life. My world has opened up and a huge vista is laying out before me. I am so thankful for the view.
I am thankful for all of you who are reading this right now. HUGS each and everyone of you!
