Imbibing with gratitude!
We all know there are many lessons in nature and if we begin to seek we can find an inspiration and insight as well as solutions to everything in nature.
However, we are part of nature and nature is in each of us…so much wisdom is waiting to be tapped from people we know!
There are many people that you can learn so much from around you.
All it takes is acknowledging.
To use discernment as to what you can learn
And having space in your self to imbibe the good.
There is an uncle of mine,who has immense thirst for knowledge his memory and retention and not to mention the witty comebacks are worthy of appreciation.
In fact there isn’t a topic in the world which he doesn’t have something brilliant to say … I respect this ability and skill in him.
His memory may be innate or nurtured but his ability to converse on the subject of your choice and through his take on the subject, humorous or serious is truly commendable.
And what’s interesting is this ability hasn’t diminished over the years only got stronger! God bless him!
There is another relative who has mastered the ability to speak.. Although she may never believe it,her ability to critically examine and analyze is highly honed, and she can tipple the conversation in her favor easily amongst her relatives in no time. She will give fantastic examples that one just cannot beg to differ. Her opinions and reasoning can employ every human emotion that can be brought in. What’s beautiful is she may herself never know her talents but unknowingly she has been perfecting it from she where she was. Suffice to say she has lived in the company of brilliant orators as her relatives, who may have helped her imbibe it, without their own knowledge. God bless her!
Sometimes knowledge is best learned in time gradually improvising. Interesting to hear her converse and truly valuable learnings from her.
Another aunt is the doer. Always ready to rise to the occasion & go out her way to help. She is an innovative creator. She, too, is a great orator but sadly hasn’t been appreciated enough for all that she does.There is so much she has done for so many people at times, to the point of being personally overwhelmed. But that’s just who she is.
May God give her strength and bless her.
One more aunt who is full of life, enthusiasm and cheer. When she is around in the room there is no dull moment!She draws people in with her kind words of appreciation. She is well known for her amicable disposition and good nature. She is also a great conversationalist. Her strength is her charm, curiousity and willingness to learn and understand anything. She too is blessed with great memory. What’s beautiful is her ability to have fun.
She is someone who is not only appreciative but also extremely thankful.
So much gratitude for the learnings from them !
May God bless them all and keep them safe and healthy.🙏🏼
Although I have started writing this post with few people from my family I know I can go on to write about many around me because I have learned so much from them by them being who they are.
Here it is not the education profession capabilities, degrees or achievements that I am speaking of, but it is just my reflections on the energy and emotions that they can stir in every interaction with them .
In everyone’s life there are people from the family who teach you many things. They influence your life inextricably even though they may not be physically present together over the years.
Be grateful to every person for they are full of some unique potential that you can learn from. Most important is the ability to continue the practice of seeing the good in people. Trust me there is always much to discover.
We are all blessed with countless living human books around us. They are a treasure house of their life experiences and have a uniqueness all their own.
Let’s cultivate ways to imbibe the learnings in gratitude!
