The benefits of a gratitude practice…

The gratitude challenge results are up in story highlights on Instagram and Facebook!! I loved reading your responses. Thank you so much for sharing!!

Some of the gratitude responses! ❤️❤️ @nursehealingadvocate

I want to take a moment to reflect on the benefits of gratitude…

Gratitude is so good for the energy of the soul, and has the power to uplift the weary spirit.

It is free and one of the most effective tools I know of that restores and maintains your health.

A dedicated daily practice of gratitude powerfully supports all aspects of your health.

When we feel better, we do better. We choose life! And, we choose more often to live in faith rather than fear when we are in a place of gratitude, no matter the circumstances.

I’m curious….
do you have a gratitude practice?

If so, I’d love to hear about it!

If not, World Mental Health Day is a great day to start!

For me, I write in my journal a short list of the things I am grateful for at the end of the day.

I’m not perfect. Some days I get busy and I forget, but continuing to come back to this practice of daily gratitude as I review my day creates peace in my life.

I hope you have a blessed day, and invite you to choose gratitude, not for all things, but IN all things.

With gratitude,

Psalm 100:4-5

What I’ve Learned so far at 41…

After 6 months of going through the nurse coaching processing as a client, I know without a doubt that my voice matters!

I am no longer afraid to publicly say what I think even if it is different than the majority. I have the courage to be me and am choosing from this day forward to accept others where they are.

What do you need to say out loud that you have not yet said? I challenge you to speak the truth in love, holding nothing back.

It’s okay to believe differently than those we love. Unity is not uniformity.

Unity is defined as “a thing forming a complex whole.”

A little something I read on Instagram that spoke deeply to my heart early this morning when sleep alluded me…

“Bring me the one who disagrees to my face but supports me behind my back. Bring me the one who takes risks a little far but pushes people to be better than they were today. Bring me the one who challenges me to rethink my perspective, to research before forming an opinion, and who has relentless faith that we will work out our differences and if we don’t, we’ll disagree cordially….

Bring me the messy ones.” @principal_jess

“Bring me the messy ones!” – Jessica Alessio @nursehealingadvocate

I’m so thankful for a mother who taught me, and continues to teach me, about unconditional love in spite of differences in beliefs, appearances, and talents.

Most everything I learned about love, I learned it first from my mother because of her relentless courage to choose faith over fear, love over hate, unity over division.

She taught me it’s okay to be messy, that it’s okay to be myself, that it’s okay to be different. She accepts me as I am, and holds space for me no matter the choices I make.

It is my hope for every human that you find your path and find your peace, wherever that may be.

It is my belief that we are on this earth to hold healing space for each other, no matter what.

Much Love!!!
Ruth Renee

Resilience, not perfection…

In our society, I often hear the saying “progress, not perfection.” But these words do not resonate for me.

Being a recovering perfectionist, I often see progress as needing to be only forward moving.

To me, “progress” says mistakes are okay as along as they don’t set me back, as long as I remain in forward motion.

However, when I hear the word “resilience,” I think of being brave and getting back up every time I fall.

I think of how it’s okay to take 1 step forward and 3 steps back.

To me, resilience says it doesn’t matter how far or fast I go. The only thing that matters is that I never give up.

“Resilience, not perfection.”

Meditate upon these words. Be aware of how you receive them. Allow grace into your heart and soul.

—-

Growth is messy. Action over perfection is messy. Resilience not perfection is messy and imperfect, and that’s okay. It’s actually quite a beautiful thing.

To my reader, where has focusing on perfect progress held you back? Where can you give yourself permission to be imperfect and resilient?

If you’re a perfectionist interested in growing your resilience, please email me at nursehealingadvocate@gmail.com. I would LOVE to coach you!
