Gratitude this Sunday

20180812_101051_0001Listening to the falling rain come down as I look around at these loving faces at breakfast. I wonder what I did to to deserve these people and these experiences? Nothing. Truly we all deserve love, good things, and positive experiences in life. I wish that and all helpful, beneficial things for you. Also, more often than not, it takes time to cultivate these relationships. Other times we need to remember to reach out and reach in to grow this relationship within ourselves, too. It can take work and soul searching. Life is a mix of tough and good, so these things are not highlighted or remembered during our painful times unless we practice gratitude for them. Wishes for happiness and loving thoughts. ❤❤ #serenitysunday #soulfulsunday #deserving #goodthings

Acceptance and Moving Towards Forgiveness

We all want and really need to be met where we are in life, wherever and however we are doing. This usually means as someone who struggles at times, is not always happy or fine, and is not perfect, if there was such a thing as perfection. I wholeheartedly believe we all want to be loved as we are and forgiven for our mistakes, big and small. We all, all of us, make mistakes. We want to be seen for all our beauty and not remembered for our imperfections or wrong doings. We are works in progress. We want to be accepted for who we are and this is a core (extremely deep) desire. No judgment. Much love❤-Alyse. #meetuswhereweare #acceptance #forgiveness #wearenotouractions
