My intention this week is to honour my blessings. coque de samsung galaxy

Recent reflections have shown me just how many blessings I have. My wonderful Tech Guy, three awesome daughters, two cute kitties and a beautiful view of my bird feeders out of the window! My (newish) blog has been well received and I’ve been asked to write a guest post for one of my favourites, Bliss Habits.

If you are reading this, then you’ll see that this blog is a fairly recent venture. It was inspired by the lovely Amy Palko who began a writing project inviting us to share our beliefs. Finding that my first response was too long to fit in her comments section, I began a blog of my own. Now this all sounds fairly straight forward, but I have hankered for many years to write. Only, I never knew what to write. Creative writing was not my bag – I don’t feel that I have sufficient imagination (however, based on the changes that have taken place over the last few months, that too could change!), but I knew that I could write academic essays. I loved the idea of blogging, but was hampered with thoughts of ‘what do I have to say that is of any value?’ or ‘who would be interested in anything I have to say?’ Well, Amy’s invitation must have hit the spot because I decided to try.

I have read copious books, internet articles and blogs about ‘finding yourself’ – because I have felt over the years that this is what I needed to do. What I found was that the thing I took most comfort from was realising that other people felt exactly the same way that I did. coque samsung s8 It seems that it’s fairly common to feel that you’re ‘not good enough’, not slim enough, not rich enough, not smart enough and I came to the conclusion that if so many people felt like this then it must be a human condition rather than truth.

With this in mind, I began examining my beliefs – picking them apart – looking at where they came from, what their results were and how they impacted on my life. I have been inspired by articles by other bloggers and life coaches and. as I have explored my emotions, feelings and beliefs I have come to better understand myself. offre coque huawei I have realised that while they all combine in a particular way to result in the uniqueness of me, they are not unique to me and I realised that if I can be inspired on my journey by others, then perhaps my experiences would be equally important for someone else. coque iphone X As you can imagine, this journey of discovery is an ongoing process. My beliefs are opened to question every day. I jump to conclusions and make judgements just like anyone else does, but now I can recognise when this happens and explore where it comes from (although sometimes I choose not to go there because I’m not ready yet!). This work has given me freedom. Freedom to begin accepting that I am enough. Freedom to begin accepting that I have value.

And so this week, my intention is to honour my blessings.
