Thankful ThursdayToday I give thanks to Maya Angelou (RIP) for this poem that inspires me on days I need to dig deep, rise and remember who I am. 🥀 If you are having a tough time right now, know it’s not permanent, and you are not alone. Open your mind to enquire about the deeper invitation to explore different perspectives. Perhaps there’s inner peace awaiting which can create greater mental, emotional and physical freedom. Still I Rise:"You may write me down in history with your bitter, twisted lies.You may trod me in the very dirtBut still, like dust, I will rise.Does my sassiness upset you?Why are you beset with gloom?'Cause I walk like Ive got oil wellsPumping in my living room.Just like moons and like suns,With the certainty of the tides,Just like hopes spring high,Still I'll rise.Did you want to see me broken?Bowed head and lowered eyes?Shoulders falling down like teardrops,Weakened by my soulful cries?Does my haughtiness offend you?Dont you take it awful hard,'Cause I laugh like Ive got gold minesDiggin in my own backyard.You may shoot me with your wordsYou may cut me with your eyesYou may kill me with your hatefulnessBut still, like air, I'll rise.Does my sexiness upset you?Does it come as a surprise?That I dance like Ive got diamondsAt the meeting of my thighs?Out of the hut of historys shameI riseUp from a past thats rooted in painI riseI Am an ocean, leaping and wide,Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.Leaving behind nights of terror and fearI riseInto a daybreak thats wonderously clearI riseBringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,I Am the dream and the hope of the slave.And still I rise." And just like the Sun each day, YOU WILL TOO! For stories of inspiration and resilience, check out my You Can Shine podcast. Jx
Thankful ThursdayI read a very moving passage yesterday which talked about shifting our focus from our problems to gratitude. You've probably heard about 'the attitude of gratitude'. I like to think of it as the 'altitude of gratitude' as for me, when I give thanks, it lifts my thoughts, my focus and my spirit to that which is 'good' about my circumstances - I STOP fighting or arguing with reality. Instead, a greater calm and peace presents which enables me to breathe deeply into the deeper truths of my experiences. Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Give it a try for yourself. Right now, I am grateful for life, for family and friends, for my 'home', for the abundance my path has brought to my life, for the deep peace and love I live with every day, and of course I am grateful for YOU - my tribe - who love, care and support me and my work by providing encouragement, sharing your thoughts, and sharing my posts. My heart is so full of appreciation and gratitude for life, for nature and for you. There is always something to be grateful for....even if you have to dig really really deep to find it! What are you most grateful for today? Jx
