Gratitude List

Things I'm grateful for this month:

Going to the beach and beach sunsets
New series Teen Mom: Young Moms Club
The hawthorn tree in my road blossoming
Roses coming out in my garden
Encouraging blog comments. :)
Longer days

Also thought I'd include a picture again this month. I took this when I went to the beach a few days after Beltane:

Feeling Like a "Loser"


I've had the idea for this post for quite a while, but haven't got round to writing it. I've been concentrating on my Feeling Your Emotions series and some of those subjects weren't easy to write about (such as anger and shame). I think the next FYE post will be a "neutral" one because I feel I need to get to some halfway point first before moving onto the more positive emotions such as happiness and love. If you follow the Law of Attraction you may have heard about the Abraham Hicks Emotional Guidance Scale, and how it's not very easy to just "jump the scale" from something like discouragement (further down on the scale) to contentment (higher up). I'll talk more about this subject in the next FYE post, but for now this post by Kelsey Aida (which I linked to in the Feeling Your Emotions intro post) explains it well:

I thought I would write a post about this subject before continuing with the Feeling Your Emotions series.

Feeling like a "loser", i.e. not good enough (or less than, worthless) is something that is common for a lot of people. This is also tied to shame, feeling ashamed of yourself. You can read more on the subject of shame here (Part of the FYE series):
