    I am grateful for just finishing breakfast with my family and getting ready to go see the fish at Bass Pro with our kids.

    The sunlight on the beautiful white snow, time to be alone and be happy, all the awarenesses I have about my life journey. I am grateful for what I am learning and doing in the last quarter of my life. I realize though that there are still ways that I can become more Self-Compassionate ie. about how much dark chocolate I eat each day!!!
    My life is blessed and I am grateful.

    Sharing gratitude and intention with community of Lifework.

  • Shirley Chosy says:

    Best part of my day…..sharing gratitude and intention to follow lifework.

  • Elizabeth DeWitt says:

    I am grateful to be living in a small house in the woods in Italy and still able to receive these messages from Eileen Fisher Lifework. Sometimes it sits in my mailbox for days before I open it, but sometimes it is exactly the message that I need in that moment. My intention is to try to be more present in the here and now.

  • John Bedosky says:

    The simplicity of this exercise can be deceptive as can it can obscure its power. Don’t underestimate this! Try it for a few days. I’ve been doing a version of this that is less meditative, and something I learned from Dr. Nathaniel Branden, and that is to begin each day with two questions — What’s good in my life? And what needs to be done?
    Thank you!
