HUMILITY MONTH: DAY 10: “You will never cease to be the most amazed person on earth at what God has done for you on the inside.” ― Oswald Chambers

I am always amazed by my life and what has happened to me around here. I wake up most mornings with a sense of awe that I get to be me, living the life I live right now. Beautiful! Wonderful! Magical! And I never want to take a single minute for granted. It is too precious and rare and lovely.

This time of year, I am blessed to spend a great deal of my time outdoors, enjoying the spectacular beauty of the place I live. Wild ocean, amazing forestry, lovely cliffs and so few people. Lots and lots of sea life and birds and growing things. Blessings all around me.

I have wonderful food to eat, some of it is now coming from my gardens. Yay! I am physically fit and able to walk for miles on any given day, if I want.
I have an amazing life. There is not an abundance of money in my world, but enough to take care of all my needs and a few of my wants. I love that too!

And my heart is full and grateful because I work to focus on THAT. It works for me so well. I cannot believe I get to be who I am every day.

There is great service for me to do, but not so much that I feel burdened or burnt out. I have gifts to share, and I do, as much as I can. I don’t work as much as I used to, so I give myself away in ways that feed my soul.

And I know when my soul is hungry and when it is satisfied with what is going on. I keep in touch with it, because this amazing life in recovery has given me these steps to clean out the crap that accumulates from time to time. WOW! What a blessed life I have.

I am seldom lonely, because the world around fills me up in satisfying ways. I tend my home and my gardens, my cat and my friends; my work and my service and the things that feed my spirit. I tend my soul and my health and that is enough to keep me happy and content and filled. I can sit for long times, at rest and peaceful, or dance in my living room and all things in-between. Yes, Mr. Chambers, I never cease to be the most amazed person on earth!

I am a therapist and counselor with long-term recovery from addictions and personal trauma. My writing reflects these experiences and the road I have traveled in 12-Step recovery settings, along with the work I have done for over 30 years in the field. My love of dolphins includes the stories of them being healers in places all over the world. I long to offer every broken spirit and body the experience of a healing hug. May my words and stories inform, uplift and delight your spirit and soothe your weary heart.
