4. A Family Member
Well after last weeks Grateful Challenge about our families it really did make me feel how lucky I am to have my family. Even when I mess up, my family never make me feel badly about it. I know that I can talk to them about what happened and how I can improve, but I never feel spoken down to, which is why I keep going back.
So it marks it hard to think of just one family member I have that I am more grateful more than the rest, but I guess I don’t have to take it that way…So I wont. I am grateful for my entire family, even the ones I don’t particularly agree with their views. As they were the first people that taught me about you don’t have to agree with everything just because you might care about someone.
However, when I thought about the first thing that popped into my mine is I do have a special relationship with my Grandmother and throughout my life she had probably been the biggest supporter of her entire family. She is a such strong individual and she has had a really amazing life. She was the one who taught me about Reiki and she was the one who eventually “levelled” me up through Reiki teachings. As well as teaching me about the Chakra, Tarot…A lot of my spiritual side comes from her, as well a lot of my general overall history and background, I’ve learnt from her. The best thing I find about her is that she is just so assertive. Which is something that I severely lack, but with all my faults, she never makes you feel bad about them. She just naturally accepts that’s who you are…And it’s fantastic to have someone like that.
I honestly believe she is the reason that while I have a big heart, I refuse to let it be taken advantage of. Or allow others to make me feel bad about myself. Whenever I need to “Re-tune” my self, she’s the one I would always go to first. I love my Mum and she does give me great advice, but she’s my Mum,lol
