Thankful Thursday
When the discomfort of not speaking your truth becomes greater than the fear of what may or may not happen, I’m grateful to have learned that I don’t have to wait for my feelings or the discomfort to change to take action.

I’ve learned that by taking action, my feelings and the discomfort are transformed.

Just recently being faced with the option of a radical medical treatment to manage my condition, I lost a lot of sleep worrying about potential side effects or longer term consequences. But then, in a moment of decision, and commiting to the course, my anxiety and fears were transformed into empowered authority… knowing that whatever happened, I would handle it. Realising too that if I didn’t do something about it, nothing would change.

Can you relate to this?

It's time to reclaim your life and to rise (above your circumstances) and shine! Jx

I’m finally home from hospital after 8 days of treatment. I feel calm, serene and rested.

I’m grateful for the chance to focus entirely on my healing journey and rest.

The older I get, the more I realise that when adversity and challenges arise, we always have a choice in how we respond.

We may not be able to control what happens to or around us, but we determine how it impacts us.

We get to choose if we become better or bitter by circumstance ie. rise above diminishing resonance; or allow calm, compassion and loving kindness to be your companions (especially towards yourself).

What can you do today to make your world better?

For me, I will count my blessings and smile as I sit still in the sunshine for a while.

Sending much love to all, with much gratitude for your well wishes and love. Jx

I write this post from my hospital bed as I ponder random moments that have left lasting impressions on my life.

One of the first people I met when I moved to Brisbane in 1993 was a man named Anthony. Anthony had cerebral palsy and sold raffle tickets in the Queen St mall to raise money for the foundation. Despite and in spite of his crippling physical limitations, this man was a shining example to me of a blazing spirit seeking to serve meaningfully, and to contribute to a better day. He was so inspiring to me.

Then there was Ken. Ken would set up and sit in a corner in the middle of the mall with his trusted golden retriever. He is a blind busker and would play his harmonica. I would stop and listen to him and chat a while. He always made me smile.

I saw Ken again recently in the mall and asked where his dog was. With a tear in his eye he proceeded to tell me that his dog had died and because he is now 80yo he is deemed ‘too old’ to get a new seeing eye dog. This made me feel so so sad for Ken. I gave him a big hug and told him how much I’d appreciated listening to his harmonies over the years, and how much I enjoyed taking in the beautiful friendship he shared with this trusted companion.

I’m thankful for meeting these strangers who over the years became familiar faces in my life.

I’m forever grateful for their resilience and big beautiful hearts. Just like me, Anthony and Ken refused to be defined by their circumstances, nor dim their light in service for a better day.

Remember: you are not defined by your circumstances… you are created by them. Be strong. Have faith. You got this! Where there’s a will, there’s a way. Jx

Dear Josie, you’re amazing how even when you’re feeling low, you summon the energy to share your wisdom and shining love. Lots of love and very best thoughts. Kevin xo

I remember Ken but I never asked his name. I often slowed or stopped but was never brave enough to talk to him. More people like you in the world Josie showing us how to be more human.

I really appreciate your posts Josie, and your recollections remind me of these very amazing people that remind me too of living in Brisbane. It goes to show that we can, each of us, commit to everyday causes that make our world a better place, just from each of us being in it. So thank you too for your contributions to make each of us better in what we do. 🙂

Sending you love Josie. I hope you are ok xxx

Thankful Thursday
Whenever we have a challenge, our job is to find out why the gift has been given to us.

It certainly won't feel like a gift at times. It may be a very poorly wrapped gift you never wanted.

But here's the thing: often we don’t see the value of the challenge (and gift) until much further down the track.

In my case, the message is clear. Stop. REST. Heal.

There is nothing else for me to DO. The world can wait. Now is my time.

Listen to the silent and sometimes insistent messages your body is trying to give you. Your body holds wisdom beyond what the mind can possibly comprehend.

Pause. Tune in. Listen. Honour the call for self-care. Your self-care the is key to unlocking your gift to the world.

May you be well. Sending much love to all, Jx
