I think there’s a lot of spiritual messaging about how doing daily gratitude lists will magically change our life and manifest all of our dreams. I find those messages frustrating because manifesting is not actually that simple. Often this messaging is coming from folks with a lot of privilege who have had success but are not talking about how oppression and trauma affect our ability to manifest and ‘control our focus’. Controlling our focus in order to manifest things can be incredible. However it’s also more complicated of a process than that for many people.
Gratitude is much less complicated. Searching for things to be grateful for (not forcing it for things that you’re not grateful for) is a healing tool that is seriously for everyone. By reflecting on what we are grateful for every day we can actually train our unconscious to accept that we are worthy of these things. It’s a way to foster self acceptance and appreciation.
Im grateful for my friend who sent me a super sweet package including this 30 days of gratitude booklet. I’m about a week in. After three days I noticed a shift in how freely I could express my appreciation for others in my life. I definitely recommend trying 30 days of gratitude too but there’s no pressure to not also feel rightfully angry and sad and all other things. Self acceptance means allowing space for everything.
If you would’ve told me a year ago, the things I’d get to be doing today.. I would’ve told you that you’re crazy. 121 auditions. To book a gig you will never get to see my face in. To book a gig that may very possibly be the best job I will ever have. The best master class I could imagine. Learning from people who have been doing this basically their whole lives. To just sit back and see the whole picture and not just “my part”. There is so much more. So much to give. So much that is crucial that will never be known. So much to learn. I hope that I never stop learning. Never stop growing. Never stop myself out of fear of failing. Be willing to jump in with those who have so much to give. Even if you’re scared. Even if you don’t feel deserving. You will never learn if you are scared to push yourself. If someone offers a lesson, whether they know they are or not, say YES and listen. Listen and learn. Soak it all in. This may not be what I’ll be known for.. but it very well might be how I learn to get there. BIG THANKS and LOVE to @jason_lockhart & @chase68 & @robismellow .

Oh this poor baby! Only five months old! 😟 He had a #collar wrapped tightly around his #tongue , resulting in what you see. Please #donate to help cover the cost of sweet Bryan's #surgery and care. He deserves to live a #happy#puppy#life ! Please see @pittieslovepeace previous post for more information and photos (graphic). #EveryLifeMatters#SaveALife#help#AdoptDontShop#deserving#medical
@Regranned from @pittieslovepeace - !!!BRYAN UPDATE!!!
We just received a call from HOPE about Bryan and he has gotten worse over the course of the last 8 hours. The front part of his tongue is now cold and changing colors. The two surgeons on today and the vet who called feel that he does need to have surgery as soon as possible, which will be tomorrow morning. They do not want to wait too long and have a systemic infection start. He will need a feeding tube for a while in order to make sure he gets the medication he needs and food into his system. The surgery estimate is $2800, which does not include the approximate $3000 needed for his supportive care and hospitalization. If all goes well, he may be able to be released (with the feeding tube) in a couple days.
Despite this traumatic ordeal and the pain he had endured, Bryan is super sweet and the doctors tell us everyone at the hospital is quickly falling in love with him. ❤️ Please keep Bryan in your thoughts and send positive vibes for a successful surgery tomorrow. If you are able to lend a paw to help cover the cost of his care, all donations are tax deductible. We will update everyone tomorrow after his surgery. Thank you so much for the outpouring of love and support for sweet Bryan.
Link to donate is in our bio.
