PBS Nature Show, Handy People, Family…

Born Wild Nature Show

Today I Appreciate….

  • PBS Nature Show – I watch this show often and tonight they had the show “Born Wild: The First Days of Life” – It was an excellent show! Ohhh there were a few spots – well I won’t say I didn’t like them – but it does get you thinking…. Most of the show was totally fascinating!
  • Handy men/women – Yesterday me and my riding mower, yes the one I spoke about yesterday, well we got stuck down in my neighbor’s yard. Ohhh it is long story – and actually it’s a bit of a drive to my neighbors house. So today I called a guy who has worked on this mower before. He came over and in 2 minutes he had it running… and off I rode up the hill. 😉
  • My Family – I was talking to my niece today and she had me laughing, laughing. She has a great sense of humor and the most contagious laugh. When she laughs I remember back to when she was little with that same infectious laugh – I have a time in my mind when she was about 2 sitting on the couch laughing so hard – It fills me up with joy.

What do you appreciate in your life? It doesn’t have to be a big thing… Look at me – I got stuck yesterday with the mower (and had to walk about the hill) yet I can find a way to appreciate….

That’s what making “appreciation lists” will do for you – You start to create a habit of appreciation…. Ahhh I appreciate that too!   😀

1. The gorgeous clear sky last night that allowed the full moon to shine down on my coven’s Samhain/Full Moon ritual. We were really on our game last night!
2. That time in the morning when I am inspired to do a little picking up before heading out to work. When I come home I see a nice picked up living space. Aaah.
3. The sun shining this morning. It is too easy to get little sun at this time of year. As I walked to my building I really appreciated the warmth and brightness. I just lapped it up!
4. My wonderful little car. It is reliable, fun to drive and has great cargo space.

I’m recognizing an appreciation for my two teenage kids – they challenge me daily, keep me moving and thinking, multi-tasking, while maintaining a sense of self, balance and humor. They make me stronger.

I’m appreciating a full-time job, benefits, coworkers and learning flexibility in life.

I can appreciate the need to hold my tongue and open my ears. Amazing what you can hear when your mouth and brain are calm.

I appreciate my good health and mental well-being – I love the studio where I practice yoga and look forward to seeing my “yoga friends” and doing something so good for my body a few nights every week. It never feels like “work” and I always look forward to going to class! I also appreciate my Science of Mind subscription – the daily meditations are wonderful and a great way to start each day. Here’s one that I’ll share with you… “Happiness never decreases by being shared.” 🙂 I’m already feeling happier – hope you are too!
