I celebrate Day 365 of publishing this nightly post. I actually have probably overshot it by a post or two, but I wanted to make sure! Since I’m the author, I’ll make the determination. DAY 365 — WOO-HOO! HOORAY!
I’ve learned a lot; I wanted to when I embarked on this endeavor. However, I will be honest. There is no freakin’ way when I started this a year ago that I had anything in my thoughts like I’m going to write every day for a full year and produce a bit less than a million words. I can only tell you that fellowship with my Heart, that core Self, is a very real phenomenon. From that, I knew I had to start, to do what I could, the best I knew how. It’s pure gratitude I feel for the kindness, love, and support of others, not to mention the energies of life, that field around me of magic and miracles.
Gratitude is what I feel tonight — unmitigated, full joy. I’ve reflected the last several nights about lessons. I am not going to do anything else this evening except to list ideas, concepts, experiences, lessons, blessings, all these blessings and more over the last year that are gratitude prompts for me tonight.
1. Knowing and Discovering my core Self, Heart, in greater ways than I imagined possible.2. Discovering facets, aspects of total Self — past, interests, strengths.
6. Ego — this is all about self-awareness, knowing how Ego works, how it can interfere if not understood.
7. Love — so much love from Spirit, for Self, and others and this world
10. Conflict — Ego and Heart
11. Challenges and Responses
12. Writing, Writing Writing
13. Relationships — value
19. Life Energies
23. Self-awareness — In some form or fashion, almost all of the above fall into this category — So much to discover about Self, ocean depths and space expanse of our existence are just as great as those of our observable Universe.
Are there more? I’m sure, but for this day of Soul, Mind, Heart Celebration, these are my gratitude prompts.
I can tell you that a year ago, I probably would have scoffed, if I allowed my Ego to operate my mind and soul. I would have thought if there’s no money in it, why do it? How do I turn this to cash? If I would have known I would go a year and have no return on investment, I would have, egoically, abandoned all. Now, I literally would not trade the nearly one million words for a million dollars. The value of what I’m thankful for is much more than this.
I don’t want to leave out a special part of this journey. While I would have done this no matter what, the special connections I’ve made over social media has been a source of encouragement. Thanks to a young entrepreneurial friend of mine, I put a lot of focus and effort into Instagram, and I value those connections, along with those on other social media platforms.
It’s been great, and I plan on continuing, adjusting, and working towards further mission goals. It’s part of who I am, Discovery, core Self. As Heart continues to serve as my primary operating system, I will continue to discover core Self. I will live that Truth, Self, Purpose, and Heart in love of Self. The extent I love myself is the limit to how much I can love others — an important truth.
Hearts know things, and the light of knowledge to the mind and love to the soul depends on accessing our own Heart and appropriating those truths for Self.
Blessings and Thanks for connecting with me, reading my work, and caring. Much love!
