I would like to start this Blog by sharing how grateful I am today, and what a wonderful practice it is to be grateful for something everyday, and sometimes grateful for 3 things, 5 things, or seeking to discover how many things myself or others could be grateful for each day.
There are many ways to make a day more positive, or uplift an entire day early to be able to carry the weight of the day's stress to come. I have been on a path of learning many of these things, and I hope to pass along what I learn for your benefit, and sometimes even as I am just learning it. I've heard and come to know that the best way to learn something, is to teach someone else what you know or what you're learning. I have found the insights and the new knowledge keep flowing back to me, as I share learning with others.
I'd like to take a moment to reflect....
Yesterday was a day full of reflection for me, and it was significant in a way that held deep personal meaning for me, because it lead me to today, which is an even more deep and personal meaning for me. Yesterday I would have blogged to tell you the importance of tomorrow, and how we have a chance to start fresh to both begin new transformative healthy habits and actions in our lives as well as continue the actions we learned today. It is my hope to learn and share with you with hopes that you are learning and growing too!
Today I knew I was going to write a blogtemplation and I am thrilled to tell you how transformation, change, and growth have brought me to a healthy place I could not have seen before. If you see my posted image you will see a tree on my bandana, which is a symbol as well as a physical reminder. It is actually a tree in my backyard which was struck with a cold frost a few years ago, and from a power within the roots of that tree, it sprang back new trunks and branches to become the image you see there. It's an amazing story for sure, and as a metaphor to life, I believe we each have a chance to revitalize the deepest part of ourselves, let the old parts die out and let new and healthier parts come to a life which sustains and gives us happiness and health beyond our dreams.
I hope you find wonderful metaphors in your life today, and please share your metaphor in your circles of friends and sharing. I would be thrilled to hear your metaphor for life, transformation, change, and growth!
Seek tomorrow and live today the best healthy version of yourself.
Thank you for contemplating with me today.
