Lammas Gratitude


Merry Lammas to those who celebrate! :)

Lammas is the day we celebrate the first of the harvest - though this year, there are slim pickins! I like to live by the seasons and I do celebrate each one. It's no secret that I am a Pagan at heart, I just love Nature and everything she gives us each day - with no expectations of anything in return. I don't follow rules, but I do appreciate the traditions of my Celtic ancestry.

Today I'm very grateful for everything I have, despite the challenges I face daily. I have a little mantra that I say out loud every day to remind me to stay positive:

"My mind, my heart, my soul are free; no negativity will bother me.
I can't change others, but I can change me."

I made it rhyme so that it would be easy to remember and it works. I used to live a very clouded life and I regret it because it was a life wasted. Now it's my mission to enjoy each moment as I can and feel gratitude every day.
