Today, on this here Thanksgiving Day I’m beyond blessed and full of gratitude to be celebrating my birthday. Happy Birthday to ME! 🥳 The cool thing is, Pop turned 90 on Father’s Day. And, here I am today. And, the last time I woke up in the same house on my birthday with my dad was during my high school years. So this one is super special. And, it’s only fitting on this Thanksgiving day to give thanks to Pop and his will and spirit to live. He is my beautiful birthday gift (He asked me like five times what I wanted.)
As for Kathryn big ups, the past two years have been full of purposeful reflection, processing, growing, healing past wounds/traumas, releasing, evolving, and REBIRTHING, mixed with a balance of pleasure. The work I’ve been putting in requires much of me. It ain’t easy. I thank the Rev Coach La Tonia Taylor of Rebirth International. I love the me that I’m becoming because even now at 53 it’s never too late to seek and have freedom, joy, and purpose. You remember that for yourself. YOU deserve YOU.
Today I’m also grateful for my family and friends who’ve showed up for me and Pop this year. It means the world to us. We appreciate and love YOU! 💜💜💜
Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy my lovelies. Be good to each other and especially to YOU! Let us be joyful and glad in it. Blessings upon blessing to you. Love! #BeDoLove
And, I gift you with two of my favorites below. Love!
“Gratitude is a tangible force. The more you feel it, the more reasons you will find to feel it. Gratitude is a miraculous force, like a magical magnet, generating and then attracting so much more than you have already received.” — Lazaris
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
