dancing in the still point on the spiral journey of life

Sparkling Gratitude


This week I discovered and acknowledged some of the sparkling jewels that shine in my life:

  •  Laughter
  •  New friends who help me
  •  My ability to learn and grow
  •  A connection to my Higher Self
  • The realization of the ways in which I have become native to my place


I became aware of all this when I looked at this picture that I took on Monday.  The sunlight gleaming on the glass chimes was dazzling.  I am so grateful to be living the life of my dreams today.


What have you discovered this week?  What sparkles in your life?

    I just love sparkles, Petre. Thanks for the prompt today to think about my sparkling life in this way.

    I like your image and think there’s likely sparkles in your eyes too.

    I discovered the excitement I feel taking a class to learn something new.

    Plus Mike is coming this weekend, so I’m sparkly.

    I love that picture – I keep getting drawn back to look at it, it’s mesmerizing to me! Thank you for sharing such sparkly things from your life.

    Right now, at this moment, what’s sparkly in my life is my art journaling practice (which truly has become like a daily practice and is bringing so much to me) and my ca’ts purring nearby as I type this… although her purr is sort of low and rumbly and maybe it doesn’t *sound* sparkly, it sounds sparkly to me and I consider it (and her) to be a sparkle in my life.

      Gin, isn’t art journaling the best?? I love it. A putting kitty cat has always been one of my most favorite sounds on the planet.
