Today I Am grateful for my father – my first role model and inspiration for being the best that I can be – morally just, fair, bold, inquisitive, curious, passionate about learning, patient (which I’m finally starting to get – starting…), for teaching me to accept things as they are and not getting frustrated when things don’t go my way, for all the times we shared time together, playing outdoors when I was a kid, the multitude of camping trips, his work as a leader when I was in Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts, fostering my appreciation for nature, for all of the times he took me to the movies or played video games with me, for all of the hard choices he had to make for my benefit and for my sisters… and for so much, much more – Happy Father’s Day, Dad!
I Am also grateful for a great hotel buffet breakfast – sometimes you just need to go all out and enjoy a good meal.
I Am grateful as well for my coaching from my many friends and teachers in the Landmark Introduction Leaders Program – I have certainly grown this weekend in my ability to speak my word and honor my word, even if I can’t always keep my word – and to separate any sense of fear, stories or reasons from my ability to take bold actions at any time.
Finally I Am grateful for the miracle which I spoke into being on Friday, and to which I have been hinting at ever since. My recent major change in plans for this week (and for those of you who knew about my upcoming trip to Australia – well, that’s not happening) led to my need to be away in Virginia this weekend. I had attempted to fly halfway across the world for the sheer fact that I did NOT want to be without my boys on Father’s Day. To resolve that – speaking about separating fear, stories or reasons from my ability to take bold actions at any time – I asked my cousin Allyson if she could bring the boys to me so that I could be with them on my way home, and she agreed! Thanks to her, and Melanie’s cooperation, we were able to enjoy a dinner together on Father’s Day, which would have not been otherwise possible. It was so important to all three of us, and it made an incredible difference for us. So thank you again, Allyson and Melanie! (And Allyson’s friend Sandy too!)
I Am looking forward to an amazing tomorrow, filled with love and joy, prosperity and abundance, creation and completion, new possibilities and new realities. I anticipate ending the day in complete satisfaction, knowing that only good is coming to me. It is going to be the best day of my life, and I Am grateful for tomorrow today!
And So It Is.
