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:
out of the mouths of babes…
stunning art leads you towards the light
thank you Sarah for increasing my heart opening and so much more
tattoos from heaven and my intro to Lee Harris, sigh ..
Paula helps the outsiders come into their own with wisdom and humor
Jamie’s blend of mythology, astrology and the divine feminine is sublime
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.
