Parenting can be pretty full on. Sometimes, when thing feel a bit hopeless or never-ending, “acceptance and gratitude” can bring us through to a place of grounding and peace to allow us to once again attract what our hearts, souls and lives need.
This week is all about gratitude and acceptance.
It’s been a rough period. Even the episode we were working on was spiraling around. So, finally, we went with the flow.. and moved into our “gratitude”, letting go of the fighting against “what is” and into the “what is meant to be”.
This requires a great level of trust and vulnerability. Letting down the walls and allowing it all in, can be painful and exhilarating all at once. Sometimes, we just have to leap off that cliff.
A gratitude meditation for all of you awaits at the start of this week’s episode. Doing and listening to this, has helped me, this week and I hope it will do the same for you.
The inevitable reality exhale of truth and struggle and willingness to work towards more thankfulness come after the meditation.
AND, SADLY, SOMETHING SUPER WEIRD HAPPENED WITH THE MAC UPGRADE THAT HAS MADE US SOUND LIKE WE ARE IN THE WITNESS PROTECTION PLAN OR ON DOWNERS.. SO.. WHAT AN INTERESTING SOUND WE HAVE THIS WEEK ON THE PODCAST! Working on correction, yet Mac has to participate, it seems:).
We must move “into” and “through” our “stuff”. And, the moment.. like this weird voice sound thing. Oh the frustration! Life moves us into dark places and light. Over and over it will be like this. How we manage the ups and downs opens our hearts to all the possibilities that in moments we forget. Coming back to hope. And, even when we feel the beauty of what is around.. or when we can’t feel any light in the room at all.. Our lives.. are still our lives..
Accepting the lives we have. Our lives.. in all their goodness, badness, fullness and desperation.. are no matter what.. “ours”.. Finding some acceptance.. can settle the soul .. We spend too much time trying to get to something else. Better.. calmer.. more abundant.. more something.. No matter what we have, what we have done.. in the end.. IF we can come to accept where we actually are.. life.. starts to truly open up..
And, if we can find our destination.. clearly.. then we WILL get there.. No need to know what is in between now.. and there.. What we need.. is that clarity.. and a massive amount of trust.. in ourselves.. and in the Universe..
What if your dream.. can be realized. What if life can be that simple? ACCEPTANCE. How power-full.
What if this Thanksgiving.. this end of November.. wherever you are in the world.. No matter what is happening in your world.. you find.. what you are most thankful for.. Truly grateful for.. and as well.. recognize what within yourself calls you to care for it, thank it.. and bring it to life.. now.. no more waiting..?? Are you ready?? Jump in, anyway..
Have a beautifully imperfect day.. full of gratitude.
