A Lovely Day

Thanks to Pearl Girl for honoring litebeing chronicles with this One Lovely Blog Award. Pearl Girl is one of my newer followers and a fellow INFJ. Please check out her blog. It is written with integrity, passion, and care. While I rarely blog about my Myers Briggs type, this classification fits me like a glove and informs how I express myself. People I know with this signature, along with INFPs, are some of the most gentle, sensitive, value – driven and creative people on the planet. Perhaps this is why I am humbled to receive this award. I may also write some future posts about living as a human being who is INFJ and HSP, in order to illustrate how expression through those lenses can impact one’s journey.

Seven Soulful Self Realizations

1- I soak up much more from my environment than I sometimes realize. Neptune is such an awesome yet slippery companion.

2- Taylor Swift songs snap me back to life and get me moving.

3- I have lived such an eventful life that many memories seem unreal. When they are triggered I sometimes wonder ” Did that really happen? “. ( see #1)

4- As much as I defy categorization, I am a fool for Facebook quizzes! In fact I enjoy most personality tests.

5- I tear up on a daily basis and seem to cry much more than some infants! The tears are usually a sign that my soul is smiling brightly. ( see #1)

6- Some of my best ideas take shape in the shower, my car, or while walking outside.

7- I am a complex individual, often difficult to understand and teeming with contradictions. As I grow and evolve, I let go of more self-judgement and appreciate my uniqueness.

MY LOVELY NOMINEES

I want to take this opportunity to invoke the practice of radical gratitude. I’ll explain. I have done gratitude work for a few years and my practice has become incredibly stale. We are talking 3-year-old bag of cookies stale! I plan to step it up and really appreciate all that I have with the gusto of a small child. Let’s try this exercise as I present my nominees. Remember the first time you won a prize or you aced a test? How about unwrapping Christmas or birthday presents when you were 5? I notice this effortless joy in my nieces and want to invite you all to consider the blessings bestowed upon you. Cynicism is so last millennium.

 In the spirit of innocence and wonder, I present my seven nominees. Their artistry makes my days brighter, richer, and lovelier:

 

the life of a flurozebra

 out of the mouths of babes…

the 12th road

stunning art leads you towards the light

seize one day

 thank you Sarah for increasing my heart opening and so much more

tania marie’s blog

 tattoos from heaven and my intro to Lee Harris, sigh ..

rain forest mind

Paula helps the outsiders come into their own with wisdom and humor

sophia’s children

 Jamie’s blend of mythology, astrology and the divine feminine is sublime

ghost talk blog

Bev’s take on otherworldly matters makes them relatable, insightful, and fun

I don’t know about you, but I am tired of bitching and complaining and feeling sorry for myself. Time flies by so fast and I do not want to waste any more time grieving over what could have been. I have such a blessed existence.  At the end of the day, life is truly a miracle. Every single moment is precious, in spite of losses, disappointments, inconveniences, etc.   It is simply about attitude and choice.

Every day can be a lovely day.

    1. Thank you Sue for your well wishes. When you say far too many don’t get the same opportunity we are given, what do you mean? I am intrigued my this statement and want to understand. Blogging? Spiritual work??

      love you,

      Linda

      1. I had to come back to read in full what I had said Linda.. What I meant was that we are lucky to have the freedom to go around our daily lives and enjoy that Freedom of choice, to choose what we do with our day.. Far too many people are not so free, and life for some especially within the War torn countries around our globe the simple choice of walking out is fraught with danger .. At the end of your post you said~~~
        ” At the end of the day, life is truly a miracle. Every single moment is precious, in spite of losses, disappointments, inconveniences, etc. It is simply about attitude and choice.”..

        We are lucky that we have a choice.. For some their choices are much more limited… So that was my meaning.. I am always grateful for being born where I was born and being who I am.. We each of us even though we have forgotten made a blueprint so we could experience what was needed.. And I would think those whose lives are caught up within war zones their experience is what was required also.. But from my own perspective I am grateful none the less for the experience I am now experiencing.. And thankful I am not in their shoes…

        When we really look at life in depth though.. Really close up as to why some go through such trauma.. Its all about Balance.. It is about the Experience… For if those who had not had a blue print for turmoil.. Would we know about Peace? Because we can not experience one without the other within our reality of our experience within the world of Matter.

        If you have ever read Conversations with God Books there in is a good dialogue as to why we have choice and why some are born into such scenarios and others not.. It has always set my thoughts turning as to why some sail through life while others have one knock back after the other.. Progressing through our experiences and Spiritual levels is not all as it seems… And I always have this thought in the back of my mind..

      2. Thank you for Sue for explaining your ideas here. I was not certain if you were referring to the ability to raise one’s vibratory rate. I agree that being born in a “free” nation is a privilege. I do not thoroughly grasp why so many souls purportedly choose paths/ contracts that include suffering, but perhaps it is not necessary that I understand. I ask myself many of the same questions that you do. My life so far has been anything but easy, yet I have been given so much and am amping up radical gratitude to truly absorb all the blessings at my disposal. Namaste dear Sue.

    1. Hi Paula,
      I understand that it can be time consuming, I usually bend the rules to my will so that I can introduce my fav blogs ( especially those that are new to me or new in general) 🙂

      Your blog has really opened my eyes and raised my consciousness so I hope others will read your articles and feel the same.

      You are welcome.

    Thank you for honoring me with a nomination. I am so blessed and grateful to be on the list with these shiny peeps.
    Right now I have my hands full choosing between the good and the good so I am giving you my award so you can have two. I don’t feel I would be able to fulfill the requirements for the awards the way I would like and that would make it fun for me. I am so honored to be on the list. I hope you can feel it. I love you so much!
