Spiritual Renewal Sacrifices

Sacrfice can bring new peace and satisfaction. When I was younger and all the way through my 20's my mother said I was never satisfied. I saw it as my personality. Never accepting less than what I deserved or wanted within reason seemed normal to me. I was (and am still) very driven. I am creative. I am resourceful. So, I thought of my restlessness, as mom saw it, as a gift. In fact I sometimes was rather put out at her seeming lack of drive or taking the dregs as we called them.

Spiritual Renewal through Gratitude Day 8

Warning: I am being really vulnerable today in hopes that my experiences help you...

We all get this concept when we get a rash, dry skin or a tummy ache. Hurt or irritation = something is wrong. So why is it that when I feel a mental irritation, I almost always automatically think there is something wrong with the other person or thing with whom I am irritated with at that moment? Think about this idea for a minute and if it applies to your life.

Spiritual Renewal through Gratitude 1

So the next 39 days, I will be thinking about how to live a better life. I invite you to be conscious and share in this journey with me.

Each day, I am slowing down and taking time to see how I can be more at peace, more happy and more of service. I am doing what seems to be a new buzzword, "Radical Self Care". Today I am exploring ANGER. When I start to feel angry, I am stopping (usually) and asking what is behind the anger. I know this emotion is healthy, but what scares me most if how I deal or express it sometimes when very stressed.

#40GratefulDays - A Gratitude Journal Challenge

This is an ONLINE event.



Checking In

It may have seemed like I've checked out of the blogosphere, but I have been "checked in" to lots of other activities and two of them involve the current season of Lent.

40 Days of Gratitude

Since my last blog many exciting things have happened. There is so much to be grateful for that I struggle to know where to start. I guess starting in the NOW is best. Claire and I are hosting another #40GratefulDays. Each day we are taking photos and posting them to Instagram. It is fun and cool to see everyone's posts from around the country. However, learning this new media has made it harder to post than a quickie FB shot or writing in my journal. Remember this later.

A Challenging Challenge

Almost 40 days ago, Joy & I started the "40 Days of Gratitude Journaling" challenge on our facebook page.  Ever since I was a little girl, I have always wanted to journal but have not ever been consistent with it.  I have started diaries here and there, but never filled one up.
