What I am Grateful For

Please let me never forget how rich my wonderful life is right at this moment. Please let me never forget that all I have is all I need. Please let me never forget to give thanks. SIMPLE ABUNDANCE JULY1 Breathnach, Sarah Ban. The Simple Abundance Companion (pp. 22-23). Grand Central Publishing. Kindle Edition. 

I've been thinking. Yeah I know I do that a lot but it helps me to keep my mind active and it's not all bad stuff, indeed less than half is what I call bad stuff. Today I was reading my Simple Abundance Companion and came across the quote above.

It reminded me to remember how lucky I am to still be alive and relatively healthy especially on the days when I also feel as if my little world is breaking apart at the seams. Over the years I've written many entries about Gratitude but recently as you know I erased a great many of my posts from the past. Today I want to share a list with you of some of the things I am grateful for.

  1. I have both eyes and while they may not as good as they used to be they are still able to see and appreciate everything I see
  2. Both of my ears work and they hear so many things, the best of these has to be the laughter of children and the second best my beloveds voice.
  3. My nose still works, oh sure it spends a lot of time being stuffy but oh the gorgeous scents it brings me every day
  4. I still have my voice and most of my teeth so I am thankful for my mouth too
  5. I still have my hair and it hasn't gone all gray yet. It is also not a dull grey but a pretty silver grey
  6. My shoulders are broad and my arms weak but both can still give a bear hug or a loving one as is needed.
  7. My breasts are saggy but I still have both of them, may the big C keep staying away from me.
  8. My belly is covered in stretch marks but I love them because they are proof I bore two children.
  9. My vagina is healthy even if it doesn't see any action. Actually after my years as a sex addict that is actually a blessing 
  10. All the other parts down there are still healthy too as far as I can tell, considering some of the things I've heard can happen I am very grateful for them.
  11. My hips and butt may be on the large side but hey at least I have them.
  12. My legs are still strong and I can get around on them just fine most of the time and when I do need a little help a cane works perfectly.
  13. My feet and my hands are not swollen or sore that is a blessing I know I've seen other people my age who have hands that are gnarled and painful all the time.
  14. My heart is still healthy as is my brain. I love and I think. Both good things.
I could go on but that is a good list to begin with. Always look for the little things, they are the most important parts of your life, take time to thank them for being there for you.

National Make a Friend Day

I am not very good at making friends or keeping them it seems. I do not go outside much, in fact I hardly leave my home unless it is family related. That makes it hard especially since friends expect you to come to them at least once in a while and I find I can't. If it were simply a matter of laziness it would be understandable but it isn't. Some days I can't even open the door to let in some fresh air. I do not know where the fear comes from I just know that that is what I feel when I think about going outside most of the time. Agoraphobia: Triggers for this anxiety may include wide-open spaces, crowds (social anxiety), or traveling (even short distances). Agoraphobia is often, but not always, compounded by a  fear  of social embarrassment, as the agoraphobic  fears  the onset of a panic attack and appearing distraught in public. Causes: Genetic and environmental factors Symptoms: Anxiety in situations perceived to be unsafe, panic attacks Treatment:

My Fair Lady

Eliza Doolittle Day is celebrated by fans of the musical  My Fair Lady , a musical based off of George Bernard Shaw's 1912 play  Pygmalion . In the musical, Eliza Doolittle is a  Cockney  flower girl who wants to learn to speak properly. At the time the story takes place, proper speech was a symbol of upward mobility and education. Eliza meets Professor Henry Higgins in  Covent Garden  and he agrees to give her  elocution  lessons. Higgins believes he can transform her from someone who uses words like "ain't" to someone who can fit in with London's elite. In the musical, Eliza dreams of meeting the king. She sings a song, "Just You Wait," to share her thoughts. It is in the song that the date for Eliza Doolittle Day comes from: One day I’ll be famous! I’ll be proper and prim; Go to St. James so often I will call it St. Jim! One evening the king will say: 'Oh, Liza, old thing, I want all of England your praises to sing. Next week on the twentieth of M

Emotional Intelligence - What it is?

 F or those unfamiliar, emotional intelligence is a self-governing initiative to make healthy assessments about how our minds influence quality   behaviour . Such assessments help us to better understand our minds and reduce emotions harmful, yet natural effect on our thoughts and   behaviour . Like the sensory systems, the emotional coping mechanisms you have are not good or bad mostly they just need retuning or at least mine does. Over the next 4 weeks, I'll be looking into each section of Emotional Intelligence and sharing what I find with you. Self-Awareness: The core of Emotional Intelligence is self-awareness. Self-awareness is comprised of three competencies; emotional self-awareness, where you are able to read and understand your emotions as well as recognise their impact on work performance and relationships; accurate self-assessment, where you are able to give a realistic evaluation of your strengths and limitations; self-confidence, where you have a positive and strong s
