And on the 8th day of the blog along...a bit of gratitude

It's been a long day.  Things are stewing in the back and front of my mind, gently coming together but not quite complete yet.  I'm hoping to spend some time with where I am in my inner world so that I can share more fully, open my heart up more completely.  That is one of the big things I noticed yesterday when I wrote, Day 7: I took a walk down social media memory lane,  that I do not share as completely and fully as I did just a year ago.  My heart has been closed off for what feels like a very long time, too long.  It's not something I do consciously but I am becoming more aware of it.  Whenever things are going on, I've been hurt, I'm overwhelmed, I'm carrying too much of the energy of pain for others, I go in to fight or flight mode and I seal my heart off.  It's an energy pattern I have been noticing more and am working very hard to change.  That is part of what has been simmering within me.

But until then I'd like to share a bit of gratitude.

I am grateful that I woke up to see, feel, hear, experience another day.

I am grateful for my sweet puppy who I know is here to help me open up my heart space.

I am grateful that my new oracle cards came, "Oracle of the Shapeshifters:Mystic Familiars for Times of Transformation and Change."  They are already giving me messages and insight and they are so beautiful.

I am grateful that, "Brave Intuitive Painting-Let Go, Be Bold, Unfold!," by Flora Bowley came.  I am super excited to get into that book.

I am grateful for my creativity, my creative supplies, inspiration and all that other artists share.

I am grateful for the courage and bravery that so many people share by putting themselves out there, being vulnerable, being authentic, sharing where they are at.  I am deeply inspired by so many of them.

I am grateful for the Soul that I am.

I am grateful for the place in my healing journey that I am in.  I can feel things coming, healing, transforming and I know that it is a really beautiful place to be, even when it doesn't quite feel like it.

I am grateful for the beauty in nature.

I am grateful for so many things, almost too many to list.  This was just a short sample.

Oh, yes, I am also grateful to participate in this Blog Along and to have the opportunity to dig deep within myself and share.

May you be blessed with love and light,
