Being thankful is a daily practice-I use a Gratitude Journal where I write down what I’m grateful for.  I also make it a Success Journal-3 things I did that day to completion.  For example, “Wrote blog post!”  🙂

I started thinking back only 3 weeks ago, I was at Enlightened Warrior Training Camp. We spoke of Warrior Camp before.  I’m revisiting it again.  Every day, I am inspired and supported as I interact with my tribe.  We shared a life-changing experience and became good friends.

I’ve been reflecting on this…Recently,after a surge of “will do” attitude getting many of my tasks done with little effort.  Attitude goes a long way when you believe you can achieve anything!  That’s the Warrior’s way.

I don’t recall the arid-ness, just it was dry &sandy.  I drank a half gallon of water each day!  But the physical sensations truly don’t matter.  What I learned about myself and my fellow warriors fills me with such immense gratitude.

Our trainer,Dr. Dennis Cummins, was outstanding and very genuine- a real guy.  He modeled how to share some very profound experiences with great wisdom and grace. It was an honor to witness his personal journey. We began sitting with our tribe.  We morphed into a cohesive group that truly cared about each other and supported one another.  We also looked out for each other.

I often benefited from this tribe being helpful.  I needed some assistance as walking with a cane sometimes proved tricky in the desert terrain.  I am humbled by the depth of caring  revealed. As a “helper”, it’s very tough needing and accepting others’ assistance.  But, hey,  at times, I needed their help-to complete various challenges.

I never felt less than or ashamed of my disability.  A concerned worker asked if I had someone to assist me?    I, said “yes”-confident that someone in my tribe’ support.  And I was right.  Often, even before I asked, as a tribe member said I was the queen of the tribe.  Everyone looked out for me!

People in my tribe and others just emptied my tray in the cafeteria and told me that I was an inspiration.  How embarrassing!.  I learned to say,Thank you. I learned that I’m strong and stronger by asking for help and receiving it.  No judgement or ego.

People helped out of love.  Unconditional love, not romantic love but the love as for us as human beings.  Sounds corny, huh?  Not really.

I’m grateful for the little kindnesses. the generosity of spirit and including me in both our cheer and any tribe business.  Many decided that helping me was a gift. I’m the one who received the best gift-their time & attention.  Thanks, Fire Nation!
