As mom’s, wives, sisters, colleagues and friends, we’re bombarded daily with all kinds of stressors. Add terrorism in the news to the mix and you really start testing a women’s strength and resolve as the “Mama Bear”.
Practicing gratitude daily is a way for many women to ground themselves and find their way back to joy, calm and peace. Whether it’s around the dinner table with your family, before you get out of bed in the morning or close your eyes for the evening, reminding ourselves of the joys, beauty, love and the miracles in our everyday lives can help us to find calm amidst all of the chaos!
In a November 23, 2015 blog from Mama Gena’s School of Womanly Arts, speaking at a seminar “Reclaiming Your Radiance," Gena wrote, “Turning on our shared grief set us free to honor life more deeply.”
The excerpt essentially asked us to look towards and embody our fears and grief as a” Sisterhood” and from that sharing we can “hold the joy of connection.” “It is only through our deeply felt grief that we can really and truly connect to gratitude which allows each of us to live more deeply, more preciously and more radiantly.”
The NYTimes article was highly suggested to the Circle: “Choose to Be Grateful. It Will Make You Happier."
