I sobbed this morning. Poor B, sitting in Sydney, could hardly hear the words between the gulps. And I have no real idea why. I’m feeling anxious. Not sleeping well. A little out of control and not in a good way. Very emotional. Very demotivated. And to be honest a little lost. I sat on my bench, regrouped a bit, got a little perspective and carried on. And that’s just life. Its not always a bed of roses, even when it is. I know how much I have, how much I’ve learnt and gained, and I am so filled with gratitude for everything and everyone in my life, but today I got lost in all I’ve lost. It frightened me how easy it is to do. But I had to write my grateful for yesterday. I had read about how a gratitude practice can open your heart and rewire your brain. It does. It really does.
Some times we all get lost in what we’ve lost. I loved your post… I stumbled across it on the SCAR project post I re-blogged. Hope you don’t mind. 😀
Not at all. xx

Kerry Solomon My Yoga teacher always says happiness/sadness (and any other opposing emotions) are 2 sides of the same coin, and you cannot have one without the other. It’s impossible to feel happy and in control every day. All we can do is honour ourselves and our emotions on the days we do feel lost. It’s okay to feel that way. And how would we recognise when we feel good if we never felt bad. You need the one to know what the other feels like. But what you are doing, with your gratitude posts, is wonderful, and I thank you Lianne, because not only does it lift you up, it lifts me up too.

Yvette Puchert Ah no, noo!!! The best thing when you’re feeling out of control is to get a friend that’s feeling more out of control….and that’s me. You’ll feel a whole lot better. Mwah. It’s great to be grateful but it’s also great to just be what you’re feeling!!!
