364/365 The antibiotics and medicine kicked in today, and though I still don’t have my regular appetite, it was nice to be able to keep things down and to be able to eat today! Was really grateful for that, as well as not throwing up during rehearsals. Started to feel like my old self, and I’ll be back to silliness and nonsense soon!
Sometimes my soul needs a quiet space to find its peace again. Too many thoughts, too many things I have to do, too many people around me make me miss the time I spend only with myself - to understand where I stand and what I want. These moments of meeting myself are so beautiful, and painful at the same time. Painful because I don‘t manage to answer the why-questions in my life. Why certain things had to happen. That’s when I move forward one step, one breath, one day at the time. And the result is so much internal peace. #presence#trustlife#peacefulmoments#silence#365daysofgratitude#challenge#day81
#365daysofgratitude#day203 When you work with people who are vulnerable, grieving and even frightened, the power of empathy, touch and kindness is immeasurable. Grateful to work with such beautiful people and really make a difference.
#365daysofgratitude - Day 324 - I am grateful for delicious food, but this post is for my gratitude of making my own food! I do love to cook! I don’t do it as often as I’d probably like but when I do I’m always in awe of what a few ingredients and some know how can create. I made these Kodiak protein muffins and substituted the butter for avocado. They are super moist and delicious and definitely guilt free. I am grateful that my grandmother and my dad instilled a love of cooking while adding that secret ingredient... love. 🥰
Gratitude Day 324 [11/20/18] -
I swear, getting to hang out with Ali while she performs magic with my hair is like a combination of a girl’s night out, a day at the spa, and enjoying a LARGE cup of tea all at once. Say what you will, but there are few self care rituals that leave me feeling better than walking out of a salon with my hair styled after laughing for 90 minutes with this lovely lady!! Oh, and I’m excited to see the dark red in the sunlight!
#365daysofgratitude continues with being grateful for recognizing the value of others. So many people get taken for granted or get taken out of them, sometimes it can make them feel helpless or useless. It’s an extra level of amazing once you can recognize a persons value as who they are not what they can give you. Once you start to see people in this light, it really does change your outlook on life. Day 322: recognizing the value of others
Your mom who's there for you no matter what.
That special teacher who never gave up on you.
The husband who supports your dream regardless of how ridiculous it sounds to accomplish.
The random person that comes up to you and says thank you for all you do.
The handful of volunteers that show up to every single event ready to help whenever needed.
Those that take initiative to spread the GOOD happening in your community.
These are the believers.
We all have them in our lives.
Could be strangers,
Whether spoken or performed in action alone,
they all echo: I believe in you. ♥️ - Tina Marie
Day 20: Believers

Today’s gratitude goes out to the fest boys holiday farm stand☝🏻.
Our good friends, the Fest’s (aka Day 237) own this amazing tree farm, and every year their 3 boys put out fresh greens for people to stop by and purchase to decorate their homes for the holidays.
If you zoom in, you will see there’s a sign that says self serve, with a lock box to leave your money.
It’s so simple and trusting.
You’re on the honor system to do the right thing. How amazing is that?
I ❤️ everything about this, from the tradition, the work ethic of these boys, and the beautiful greens they supply.
The boys check the cart daily and refresh it as needed. Each year I decorate for a client of mine and they will come out extra early on the days that I need to make sure that I have a plenty to choose from. ❤️
I stopped by today on my way home to grab some fresh greens for my Thanksgiving table and snapped this picture. Looking at it warms my ❤️ and brings a smile to my face, reminding me how grateful I am for simple things.
I’m in Atlanta for Thanksgiving and still living with joy! I got to spend time with the oldest of the great nephew and niece tribes. I love my nieces and nephews so much! This break is dedicated to cackles, rejuvenation and family! #almostadoctor#365daysofgratitude Day 324
Oooh boy these grey days take a toll on my mental health!! 😕Anyone else out there seriously affected by the weather? ☁️
When the sun is hiding, I can’t help but feel lethargic, unmotivated, and extremely unfocused.
It helps to remember all the wonderful things in my life, make a mental or physical list of what I am grateful for, and what I’m looking forward to!! 🤩
Today I am grateful for my green apple 🍏 fizzies on their way, the fact that I work at home, and can take a break to have a nap mid-day, and looking VERY forward to tomorrow when the sun is supposed to be out again! ☀️
Anyone else out there battle seasonal affective disorder or the winter blues? What helps you feel better?
Day 371 of 1000 days of gratitude: yesterday I was grateful to have done okay on my own.
With Adam still in hospital, and trying to keep life as normal as possible for Amelia, I dropped her off at daycare, went to work and picked her up. Made dinner, gave her a shower and put her to bed.
This experience has well and truly highlighted to me what a team effort our parenting is, and how much work there is when by yourself. Major kudos to all those single parents out there.
I was grateful to have managed it, and also grateful to have had some quality time in the park after picking Amelia up, despite the very hot weather.
And of course I’m grateful for my hubby and all of the help that he usually contributes to the successful running of our team 😘
Il y a deux mois, ma sage-femme a constaté mon anémie de grossesse ( fait assez normal pendant la grossesse, mais particulièrement marqué chez moi ) et je me suis retrouvée avec des prescriptions de fer en comprimé et des indications à manger plus de viande rouge. Ça tombe bien je suis quasi végétarienne et j'adore les médicaments 😁 .
Malgré tout, dans un premier temps, j'ai suivi le traitement et j'ai bien du constater que ça allait quand même vraiment mieux ( que je pouvais enfin le lever de mon lit et faire autre chose que dormir ). Le hic, c'est que passé deux ou trois semaines, mon corps ne voulait plus ni des comprimés ni de viande parce qu'il n'a pas l'habitude de les digérer et que niveau transit c'était un peu la cata ! .
Heureusement, mon cerveau a fini par se réveiller et suite à une discussion avec une amie, j'ai enfin trouvé mes compléments miracles pour vivre ma grossesse tranquillement : j'ai nommé la spiruline et la levure de bière bien-sûr et la mélasse noire et l'huile de germe de blé. Je vous détaillerai tout ça un peu plus très prochainement dans mon futur blog ( que je suis en train de mettre en place ) en attendant moi je revis et mon corps est très heureux de rediviser par 4 ma consommation de viande 😁✊
Belle journée à vous ❤️
#365daysofgratitude#day202 I hope I'm not the only one who lives like this. Today, I'm grateful it was a "it is what it is" kind of day. A "she'll be right" approach to time. A "stop and smell the roses" outlook. Those constant panic days are a drain. And as I learnt today, having too much adrenalin in your body shows itself as lower back pain! Who knew! Could explain an awful lot!
I do hold a small amount of pride( lets change that to gratitude) to see beauty in the mundane; to elevate the mood from the drudgery of everyday life and make रोजमरा की जिंदगी not exactly exultant but Beautiful( for myself).
In times when Modernism has undermined spiritual aspirations in most people, #HANDMADE , through its limitations unleashes that,which is limitless.
Why else would there be a #Williammorris surge in all of Europe,during the peak of England’s Industrial Revolution?
Seeing beauty in details of everyday objects and deriving an abstract kind of connect in which there lies no intellectualization of the process, but rather a zen state of #mushin (No Mind), through which surfaces the true ability to connect to things directly and in the most positive way possible.
#365daysofgratitude#day249#writersofinstagram#mymoment#mywords#desvideskibaatein#zurich times to #mumbaitimes#mumbaimerijaan episodes need to takeover... but like all things #organic ,shall go the way the heart directs in discovering gratitude and hence self!

The biggest gift of living in British Columbia is this girl here. My sister @sophieclaireb came to visit us this weekend on the Island. One of the hardest things about moving from the mainland was moving further from my sister and her family. What we gained was a home big enough for our whole family to more easily spend the weekend together; my parents, the three of us and her family of four plus the dog and the cat! Sure we have to take the ferry however it's totally worth it to get to cuddle with my nieces. The younger one, Rosie, is in this photo. 💖💖💖

363/365 For me, one of the hardest and scariest things living away from home in a foreign country is getting sick and having to go to the hospital. I always feel uneasy in hospitals and add in a foreign language just makes things more uneasy.
Luckily, I managed to find the Sendagaya International Clinic, which was 100% English friendly, accessible and depending on the business of the day, accepts same day reservations. They let me reserve on the same day and it seemed like they were packed. However, the service and treatment was orderly, and I was pretty much done in an hour. Was incredibly impressed by the care and friendliness of the staff. Doctor might not be much for words but he was straight to the point and clear.
Was very thankful for this place! Highly recommend it to any foreigners living in Tokyo.
#365daysofgratitude - Day 323 - gratitude for what you love holds it to you. You’ll always feel it in your heart even if this is not currently present, gratitude will always hold it to you.
Holly R. from Canada shared her magical story about how she discovered in The Magic (http://bit.ly/MAGIC_BOOK) how gratitude can turn negative circumstances completely upside down when she managed to sell and buy her house and conceive her second child all in the matter of a few days. Read her story here: http://bit.ly/2DvaSBH and you can submit your story also to help change people's lives here http://bit.ly/submit-secret-story
When we blame ourselves for things that have happened we look for evidence to support this.
This is a way to “back up our story”
To keep us trapped in victim, blame, guilt.
Progressively getting worse until you have taken full responsibility for how it played out.
If the other person involved is unforgiving, projecting all blame to you, angry and not taking any responsibility for their part it can have an enormous impact on you.
You cannot take on the full responsibility, the full blame for a situation.
You cannot stack up all the evidence against you and not the other.
The more evidence we find to back up our story the more convinced we are that it’s solely our fault.
Everyone as their part to play.
However you perceive something is how it is, your mind convinces you so.
If you are taking on all the guilt and blame and so it will appear you are solely responsible, you will find evidence to back it up
Your such a good detective aren’t you?
It’s what you do well.
You make mistakes, worries in judgement.
Then you blame yourself for it all.
Then you continue to punish yourself.
It’s what you do, your sabotage cycle.
And you let all the others totally off the hook, so you can feel better.
How’s that going for you?
Doesn’t work does it?
Makes you feel worse, give the others power over you.
It’s not your responsibility to take on the responsibility for everyone.
It’s counter productive.
It will destroy you.
Either way you look at a situation someone is to blame.
Both played a part.
It’s all perception for all different viewpoints.
Accept that it “just is”
Try to make amends.
If you can’t, you can:
Write yourself a letter
Write a letter to the other person
Stop looking for more evidence to punish yourself.
Take responsibility for your part and give them back theirs.
Don’t take on their energy here.
It’s done now.
Love yourself enough to put it to bed and set yourself free.
And so to dust it goes.
