The Attitude of Gratitude – week 13

These are the things I’m grateful for from the last week:

Monday: Game of Thrones, for giving me my weekly fantasy fix.
Tuesday: Finding instructions for how to draw different kinds of labyrinths.
Wednesday: My lovely plants.
Thursday: Exploring more of the village we want to move to.
Friday: Free From cheesecake.
Saturday: Finally having the courage to create my little inspiration pieces.
Sunday: A really beautiful and thought-provoking article by Rainbowtree Woman:  A soul perspective on life and suicide and how we can grow towards a more compassionate understanding of each person’s journey.

Update: inspiration pieces

You’ll be seeing more of these types of things on my blog. I know there’s a dearth of them out there in cyberspace, but it’s something that’s been rambling around in my brain waiting for an outlet for a while now. I was too afraid of what others would say or think to put myself out there before, but I’m starting to overcome that. So I’ll be sharing more lil bits of my musings and poems in a more arty, creative format from now on.

Yes, others may do what you do, but they don’t do it the same way you do. Everyone has a different take on things, and yours is just as valid as anyone else. Please don’t forget that.

Tuesday: Speaking to my brother in the USA on Skype.

Inspire

Dream. Create. Inspire.
Leave your mark on the world,
No matter how big or small.
Pour your creative heart
And soul out.
Give your gifts to the world
And don’t hold back.

Inspired by the footprints left by the late Chester Bennington and the music of Linkin Park.

Not everyone will see You, and that’s okay

Some people will never ‘get’ You, even if they want to. It’s okay.
Some people will never understand You, no matter how much or how little they may try. It’s okay.
Some people will judge You, no matter how you try to ‘explain’ yourself. It’s okay.
Some people will not like You, no matter how lovable you are. It’s okay.

Remember this:
You are your own person.
You are lovable, You are loving, and You are loved.
Live your life with love. Give love. Receive love. Be love.
