This week’s Saturday Gratitude reminds me of the fact that, sometimes, we need other living beings to act as anchors for us. We can’t do it all alone.
Sometimes, I am spinning off into space, and I need someone to help me tether myself to the Earth.
If, like me, you tend to live “up in your head” a lot, you may need some support in grounding yourself, in coming back to your body, to the “real world” (which actually can be a lovely and nourishing place to be, even if the world in your head often seems more appealing).
Here are the grounding, tethering beings I was grateful for this week:
1) A dear friend who called unexpectedly at a perfect time to talk.
2) My amazing coach who reminded me of who I am.
3) My cat, who stretched out on my thighs while I was giving myself permission to just relax on the couch for a while yesterday afternoon. Oh, so grounding.
What are you grateful for this week? I’d love it if you’d share.
Note: My Saturday Gratitude posts will continue from here on every other Saturday.
