The words of ‘Gratitude” and “Grateful” have certainly become more sharp and meaningful during this past year of Covid. Being in treatment for lung cancer has been even more terrifying because of the way Covid attacks the lungs. Self-isolation was done immediately to lower my risk, but my friends and family also would not take a chance seeing me for a very long time. For many months of the pandemic I was feeling so well, yet not being able to enjoy my life and the people in it was difficult. Not seeing or touching my grandchildren or children, and not meeting with friends for so long has certainly been a lesson to be learned! During some of those hardest days, I practiced a strategy I used to teach my students and my own kids and grandkids. Picture a light switch on the wall. The room is dark. If you “flip the switch” the light comes on. Each time! When we use that metaphor with our thoughts, with a little practice it really works! So I practiced “flipping the switch” each time those lonely, negative thoughts would make their way into my brain. And when I flipped it, it forced me to think of what was good and right about the situation, and not what was dark and depressing.
For example: My thought: If I get this, I won’t recover from it. FLIP THE SWITCH and Today I am grateful
I am not sick. I am careful and I will get through this.My thought: I haven’t seen my grandkids or friends for a year of my life! FLIP THE SWITCH and
Today I am grateful that all of us are safe, we love each other, and we
have technology available to be able to see each other and be
And on and on...you get the idea. As for gratitude...wow, that has taken
on more intentional recognition. I have gratitude for the smallest things
such as the beautiful sky, the fresh air, feeling the sun on my face...
My gratitude for other things has only increased this past year.
I have gratitude for my home and knowing I am safe. I have gratitude
for being able to wake up and use my body to do what I would like it
to do-mostly! I have gratitude that just one of my family members got
Covid but recovered at home, and most of my friends have been
been safe from Covid.I have gratitude that my brain is working pretty
well these days, and all my senses work and are more sharp.
I have gratitude for living with a man for almost 43 years who still
can make me laugh and loves me like no other human on the earth.
When I am able to think this way, there is hope and faith in my heart that
the world is truly going to get back to a newer normal that will be better
for all of us.
Oh, wow, I love this idea of seeing the positive flip side of a worry!ReplyDelete
After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don’t believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: email@example.com or WhatsApp him +15068001647ReplyDelete
