Always Blessing, Never Losses

Sunday, October 28, 2007

That sentense knocked me off of me feet today. It was stated by a woman who lost her 4 year old son to a terminal illness. It made me start thinking. How can I live and breathe and be this sentense. Boy, a lot of the things I say to myself, the things I fear, my worries, my "stresses", my attitude--it all changes. every fiber of it changes. i can not live by that sentense and be the same person I was. Which is great by me. I am working on personal transformation and it looks like this will be another step in my journey.

Always Blessings Never Losses. My money problems---yep, I can call them blessings. I can sit back and say that something good has to come out of this. My childs learning disability-yep,I can call that a blessing as well. we will all learn and grow stronger as a result. My illness--yep, always blessings, never losses. For it in our illness that our body is telling us that our mind/body/spirit and not in alignment.

I can't imagine where I will be in the next 6 months. I will be getting by journey practitioner accrediation within a month. I'm excited to be part of that and to bring such profound healing to others as I have had. It is easy to see that as a blessing.

I just realized-I always thought that if I could come up with a good sentense, I would order an ipod online because they engrave for free.

And this all leads me back to gratitude. i've been a little neglectful of gratitude in the last couple months. And now with the drought and recession and wild fires and my money problems I can think of a million reasons why it was easy to neglect gratitude. But this sentense, when embrassed, takes care of all of that. We may not always know the blessing right away. The drought could be a blessing because it would be very beneficial to learn water conservation.

This sentense reminded me on how fear based I had become again and not realized it. Silly me. It is not in line with my true beliefs. This is in line with my true beliefs. And just having that little reminder made a great shift in my perspective this eaving.

I think I am going to hang it on my refridgerator.

    I lost my beautiful Oliver Luca within minutes of being born at 37 wks.. I was always so grateful for everything that he gave to me.. He gave me the best 37 wks of my life, an amazing labour, an amazing delivery. I got to hear his 1st cry & got to hold him even if it was only for a short while.. Things could of been so much worse than what they were so I am so grateful for that.. Then just 6 wks later we were blessed with falling pregnant with Darian Joshua who was born just 9mths later, yes just 3 days shy of 9 mths. He was of course premie & now is 13 wks old with corrected age of 6wks as we now celebrate Olivers 1st year anniversary. So that statement ALWAYS BLESSING NEVER LOSSES has remained with me thought out this year & I'm so very grateful for it.. emoticon

    I think I am going to hang it on my refrigerator, also. "Always Blessings, Never Losses." Oh, to live life with that thought always in mind. I am really going to change the way I look at things starting now. Thank you for sharing this with us.

    I think gratitude is something that we all need to be reminded of. It is always so easy to look at things taht we don't have instead of taking a look at what we do have. Thank you for sharing this. I feel so grateful for everything that I do have and you reminded me to take a look at that. Thank you!

    My son's life was a blessing that I would never have wanted to miss, even though it meant letting him go.
    Knowing that our time was limited meant that I savored the days more,. I was grateful for every birthday, Thanksgiving and Christmas, becauseI was always thankful that we had been given another year.
    I realized even as the time passed that I was fortunate to truly know how blessed I was, and that had there not been this threat, I might have failed to appreciate what miracles I had in both of my children.

    Tami, you are right; that sentence is a blessing in itself.
    I am having trouble seeing the blessings in some of my difficulties at the moment, but I'm sure they are there and will reveal themselves.
    And, gratitude is something I forget about far too often also. Thanks for the reminder.
