Gratitude Chronicle #1

Sometimes in this practice there are times when I cannot focus on my determinations. For a large portion of the beginning of my journey I decided to just have gratitude, thankful-ness, and deep appreciation for my life itself. Alongside the privilege of practicing NDB.

I am so incredibly lucky to be here today, and I have learnt over time to appreciate and acknowledge all of the things that have contributed to my growth and security.

So I have decided to start posting

5 things I can be thankful for today: 

1- A relaxed and caring employer who respects my health

2 – A full pantry, fresh from food shopping yesterday

3 – A warm house, and bed to nurse me back to health

4 – Connection to the internet so I can express myself and keep myself entertained

5 – To have had two great conversations with both of my parents today

What are YOU grateful for?

    Jesus. The fact that He has always been right beside me through every up and down in life 🙂
