How do you sum up the magic of life in “3 things”?

I’m thankful for my soul mate, heart family and friends, beagles, healers, mentors, sensitivity, forgiveness, second chances, healing and growth.

I’m excited about creating words and art.

I’m inspired by breathing, silence, peace, nature, gardens, grey days, rain, oceans, words, music, art, resilience, hope, compassion, inner strength, truth, beauty, freedom, and above all things, love!

What are your “3 things?”

Hi, I’m Jane! I create blogs, fiction, art, and adaptive yoga as I seek peace and healing in this strange and sometimes beautiful world. I’ve been chronically ill and probably crazy for 30 years, but I try not to let it stop me!

  1. I'm thankful that my husband did persist when I had no plans to marry.

    I'm excited about my growing involvement in the health and empowered patient area..

    Inspired by sunny days, smart people and good ideas. (My first thought was inspired by painkillers.)

    1. A great list, Annette! I'm certainly motivated by painkillers. :) Without them, I tend to end up a motionless mess with an unhealthy attachment to heat pads (I suppose it would have been more exciting to say electrical appliances, but that would have been misleading). Thanks for commenting!

  2. After I read your list I made my own but I have to add first that there are three things I am grateful for that I didn't at first list… painkillers (without which there are days I know I wouldn't be able to cope), heat pads for they are the warmth that helps to comfort the ache that still remains even with the pain meds, and for naps, because they really are sometimes the only and best option on some days…

    Anyway this is my list when I'm not thinking about my fibromyalgia or depression:

    I'm thankful for my soul mate, my closest and dearest of heart family and friends, our beagle babies, our home, for cuddles and laughter, for hope and dreams, for the chance to share and to be part of a community of caring.

    I'm excited by the opportunity to work from home creating art, connecting healing with intuitive readings and helping others to believe in themselves and their dreams.

    I'm inspired by the beauty of the world we live in, by those people who go out of their way to help others (including our four-legged and winged friends), by music and healers, by rainbows and shooting stars, and by love for it is the greatest gift and inspiration of all.

    Love Always

    1. I am definitely with you on painkillers, heat pads and naps, Sweetie. Three very important tools for chronic pain.

      I love your list of 3 things – I hope that our home continues to grow and flourish as a centre of creativity. It is something I've always wanted, and I think something that is unfolding before us.

      Lots of love xxxx
