Collecting and sharing the wisdom, joy and creativity of Wise Women
|Pat sent us this lovely contribution for today: |
A practice of gratitude is not about dismissing sadness, anger, fear, or confusion.
Rather, it offers us the opportunity to see that we often experience multiple feelings at once;
to welcome joy into the same places where we hold grief;
to turn our attention to what is quietly growing and breathing day by day,
which, to our possible surprise, includes ourselves.

Thank you for this lovely reminder to allow, accept, and feel all of the feelings that present themselves. It is not a simple time that we are living in right now, but some simple strategies are wonderful to have (not easy, maybe, but simple).
Well said Judy.
