Attitude of Gratitude — Day 2 — Soul people

I’ve always thought myself lucky to know so many good people. I have a family that extends far beyond my blood’s limits, to whom I can always count on for a genuine affirmation, a listening ear, a love-filled hug. From one corner of the globe to the other, I can reach out at any time and tap into my network of soul mates.

When someone hears the term soul mate, they automatically think in terms of a romantic life partner. In my experience, however, my soul mates are people, both men and women, wise with age and ripe with youth, that have connected with me on a molecular level. People with whom, when we’ve looked into each other’s eyes have recognized ourselves within.

This recognition is more than just our commonalities. Of course we share interests, but what I am trying to describe goes beyond that. They are the kind of people you feel you knew in a past life, and who, with no explanation, understand and accept your entire being.

Tonight I am grateful to have had the privilege of spending time with James and his wonderful girlfriend, Anne — fellow beautiful soul people. Mr. James Birney came into my life a few years ago, and our soul connection was evident from our first conversation. James told me soon after we had met each other that we were going to know each other for a very long time. I, however, knew we had already known each other for an eternity.

Soul mates are people who unite you with Source. They are human reminders of the divinity that lives within us all, that which unites us all together as one.

Tonight was a night filled full with soul. Just a few truly good people sitting together around a table, blessed with good food and a healthy conversation.

I am especially grateful for this connection and to all of my soul mates past, present and future.

Attitude of Gratitude–Day 34: Friendship

I’ve needed a lot of connection recently due to the secluded nature of my new life. I’m far enough away from my friends to make seeing them frequently a real challenge. Thus, today I am so grateful to the people in my life who continually make a concerted effort to reach out to say that they are thinking of me, because I am always thinking of them!

What I love most about friendships are the undertones of equality that the relationship is built on. True, sturdy, healthy friendships are the kind where both friends give and take symbiotically. I have some of the most amazing friends in the entire world, and while the closest of them are still a few hours trek away, I know that I am never alone and that I have a network of soul mates world-wide.

Today, I am grateful to all my friends, who have been my rock solid support through it all. I am also grateful to my friends who let me give, and who graciously take my support when they need it. Nothing makes me happier than to be able to give of myself unconditionally to a person who I know is going to give right back when I’m in need. I’m grateful for the heart hugs, the cuddle puddles, the out of control dance parties and the sharing of literally EVERYTHING (underwear and toothbrushes included!). I’m grateful for all of the soul-searching conversations, the break up counsels, resume and interview prep, howls at the moon, bottles of guzzled wine, pep talks, meditations, motivation and inspiration.

My friends and I would go to the edge of the world for each other. We’ve flown thousands of miles to reunite, and upon seeing each other, pick up without skipping a beat. This post is written with undying gratitude to all who have nestled themselves deep in my heart. So much love to you all.

XO,

Lizzie
