Blessitude

“I’m so blessed and full of gratitude!”

Words have power.  The things you think and the words you say, help shape your reality.

Around my 50th birthday, many things had converged in my life and it was clearly obvious that my fingers were losing the grip on the rope held over the cavernous abyss where, if I fell, I would have been lost forever!

The tiniest voice of my soul whispered and I so wanted to listen.

Change.  It was necessary.  I just didn’t know if it was possible.

I was told by a very dear woman who was so instrumental in the “launch” of this journey that my email was the first thing I needed to change.  The old one was a joke, but it eluded to a very painful time in my life.

So I thought about what I could change my email to that would be something that was positive, not only in that moment, but something that would grow with me as my journey unfolded.  I wanted it to signify a state of mind ~ a state of being ~ a state of joy!!  I wanted it to be a gentle reminder of not only what is, but of what is possible.

I worked very hard for about a week during the summer of 2011 to find this perfect word.  I had pages and pages of words that I liked and felt a good energy from.  Then I thought, ‘what do you feel right now in this moment?’  And just like that, I said, “I am so blessed and full of gratitude!”

“Blessed” and “Gratitude” jumped off the page at me and I wrote them next to each other and BAMMM! “Blessitude” was born!  And I LOVED it!!  It just felt so right.

I changed my email immediately, to some joking from well meaning friends who took to calling me “Faith.”  But I didn’t care, and to be honest I didn’t mind being called “Faith” either ;)!

I had no idea that I would create a new word when I started the process.  My initial wish that “Blessitude” would grow with me has been granted.  I simply adore when I see someone here on my blog writes it back to me.  And I believe that “Blessitude” will continue to grow and become the state of being of the majority of the population as love and grace grow!!  I wish you all BLESSITUDE!! ❤

 

“We accept the love we think we deserve.”

                                                                                                  – Stephen Chbosky

Love never dies a natural death.  It dies because we don’t know how to replenish its source.  It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals.  It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings.

                                          – Anais Nin

It is my wish that love never feels as if it has died…because it has not…how could it?  We spend our lives running and hiding from the one perfect love…I urge you to heal and to find it!

– Lorrie…Blessitude ❤

  1. If you are up for another award, I’d love to nominate you for a very appropriate one. Many of my blogging friends are as close as sisters and I consider you one of them. I’ve been nominated for the “Sisterhood of the World Award” and I’d love to pass it on to you. It seems to fit you perfectly, being a world traveler with many followers around the world as well. I’ll be posting my blog tomorrow and hope you’ll accept? The rules are fun and it’s a great way to discover many things about followers. Hope so! Blessings back,
