So grateful today:

*That my sister made it through her mastectomy with flying colors

*That she's not in too much pain

*That my sister, mom, and I get a chance to hang out together, just like old times

*That my nephews seem to have a knack for turning all sweet just when I think I'm at the end of my wits

*That my mom is still with us, to help us with this scariness

I'm Sue, and I won't let fear hold me back.

To dance is to be out of yourself. Larger, more beautiful, more powerful. This is power, it is glory on earth and it is yours for the taking. - A. DeMille

No matter what you’re feeling, the only way to get a difficult feeling to go away is simply to love yourself for it. If you think you’re stupid, then love yourself for feeling that way. It’s a paradox, but it works. To heal, you must be the first one to shine the light of compassion on any areas within you that you feel are unacceptab

Today I am thankful... and I am thankful every day... I just don't always remember that when things are going in the ditch which is, I s'pose, when I most need to...

I am thankful that anger/sadness/fear can be put to constructive use... which is something I know in my head even if my heart (and my ankle) is not yet ready to test that in the real world just yet...

I am thankful for the endless love of the creatures who come into my life... In my head I ALSO know they would not want me to sit around brooding over them when they spend their whole lives showing me how to be happy... but, day-um...

I'm SUCH a slow learner... yano?

And I am thankful for Maha who showed up to kick me in the bum to let her and all of you know I live on... and am working at getting the air back into me so I can start to breathe again...

On this Sunday night, before I go to sleep for the night, I come to think of so much to be grateful for:

-Perfect balance this weekend
-An absolutely wonderful 90-minute yoga class tonight, a new style, Kripalu, very gentle, meditation & long, slow, deep stretching
-My old yoga teacher meeting up with me for this class
-This amazing moon tonight, our entire back yard is lit up by the moon's bath of light
-A great piece on "60 Minutes" in followup to Jane Goodall, what an incredible woman and fascinating work she did with the chimps in Tanzania
-That life is good ... I know it will have its up and downs, but I'm truly enjoying what's good in life and staying positive

Goodnight all ...

* Satisfying performances and creativity
* Time alone to feed my innerself
* Supportive Dear-Hearts
* Wellness - in all its forms
* The name "Nermal" for a cat - makes me smile

Namaste: "I honor the place in you in which the entire universe dwells. I honor the place in you which is of love, of truth, of light, and of peace. When you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, We are One." by Ram Das

If you keep on doing what you've always done, you'll keep on getting what you always got. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. (Albert Einstein)

Thankful for a half a pound down. Also for breakfast yesterday with a friend, and the chance to hear what's been going on in her life. Thankful for the family support I have, and despite the layoff, I'm (mostly) happier than I have been for a while. Thankful also for the gift of time.

Kim and Rosy, a heart team

Tonight, I come to end my day once again focusing on gratitude:

-An excellent and productive afternoon of hard work for Harvesters (a win-win)
-Old friends who "knew you when" and still love you know!! LOL
-A great time with lots of laughter tonight with a great group of friends
-My amazing partner and how totally blown away and overwhelmed she was by the concert tribute put together last night to her music and musical career (in combination with an MS fundraiser)
-So many musicians with big hearts who just open themselves up to all of us non-musos (my Aussie friend says she comes from a muso family)
-A spectacular sunset tonight at our friend's home - and that we all stopped and took a bit of time to enjoy it

Goodnight all ...
