MONDAY MEDITATIONS FOR HEALING: Gratitude & A Commitment to Self for Caregivers

Good Morning!  Here is today's meditation to inspire your spirit to self-healing this week! 

Have a WONDERFUL week!

Today's Quote 

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life

It turns what we have into enough, and more.

It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. 
It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. 

Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. 

~ Melody Beattie

A Commitment to Self for Caregivers 
(whether you are a healthcare provider or a family member caring for a loved one):

This week when my heart feels heavy, life feels out of control or I feel resentful that I have nothing more to give, I will pause for a minute and make a gratitude list.  

I will remind myself that this list doesn't have to be full of the "bold gestures."  

Sometimes all I need is to remind myself that I have clothes on my back, a warm home to sleep in and a friend to love.  And maybe, just for today, that is enough.  


  1. Nice theme - gratitude. Reading this Monday Meditation reminds me that I am very grateful for caregivers with a healing spirit such as yours.

    You've given us all a great(ful) start to this week. Hope yours is full of people and events to be greatful for!

    1. Oh my gosh Anonymous, thank you SO much! I'm so so grateful for all of you. I love that we're building such a warm, supportive community here!!

      I am very very blessed in my life and every day I have to say my gratitude list could be a mile long. I have not always had an easy road, but I believe that those experiences make me every more appreciative of every gift along the way. It is wonderful to be lucky enough to be loved, be of service and be comfortable being myself :-)

      I hope you have a fabulous, joyful week!!
