A Pockitude™ is a gratitude recorded in a pocket-sized journal. It’s choosing to focus on the better things, the things that remind you why it’s great to be alive. We all need consistent reminders of the good things, and writing them down as you see them is a great tool in your arsenal. The Pockitudes™ journal fits in your pockets and purses, so you can record your gratitudes as they come to you.

With a quick jot, you get a monumental shift on your outlook in life. We encourage you to write your gratitudes for just two weeks. See for yourself the benefits. See for yourself the change in your attitude. See for yourself how you will begin to discover the good in things, people, and places.

Surrender

Surrendering is my everyday practice. Surrendering ego, surrendering expectation, surrendering into a moment which might be wrought with the angst of unknowing, of not knowing. Surrender that I might have said the wrong things to my kids. Surrender that I ate too much sugar. Surrender that I miss loved ones so much it hurts.

I practice surrender for aliveness, and I practice surrender for death. I practice surrender because sometimes it’s the only way I can forgive, or grieve. Or feel joy, abandon, compassion, love, vulnerability and laughter.

Surrender was my word of intention for 2018, and as we approach the Solstice, as I reflect on all that has passed this year, I understand surrender was the only way I could feel soft enough to keep from breaking, to trust enough that everything I need and want will be there. It’s all any of us can ever do to step into our resilience, our true nature, and the unveiling of our life’s gifts and purpose. .

Surrender is a portal, an opening that gives us the space to unfold, get messy, and reassemble into a deeper wisdom. Never alone, always with help, if we can just remember to ask. Surrender if you don’t know what else to do. Surrender because it’s the only thing we can do. Surrender because without it, we cannot be reborn.

The 6 Lifelong Practices of a Human

Frederic Terral

TRUTH is a lifelong practice. We are all broken in some way. When we really see it, and can sit with it, then we can begin to heal.

HEALING is a lifelong practice. No quick fixes. It doesn’t matter what ails us, or where it began, a wound is a wound, it all hurts, and it can show up anywhere at anytime. And healing doesn’t mean curing. Sometimes healing means acceptance and forgiveness.

GRIEF is a lifelong practice. Grief is promised to us from the moment we were born. Many of us carry it and don’t even realize it. If you are sad, you are grieving, if you are angry, you are grieving, if you are numbing with alcohol, drugs, sex, tv, games, gambling, etc., you might be avoiding grief. See Healing.

FORGIVENESS is a lifelong practice. Forgiveness heals. I once heard this wise woman say “In order for forgiveness to happen, something else needs to die.”  Expectation. Old stories that no longer serve. What we think we deserve. When we replace how we think something or someone should be, with how it actually is, knowing we can’t control it, change it, fix it, then we can begin to forgive. See Healing. Then see Love.

JUDGEMENT is a lifelong practice. Judgement is poison. We learn it from our environment and the people around us, and it happens rampantly Every. Single. Day. To stop judging is a lifelong practice and it begins with us. Stop judging our bodies, imperfections, aging. Stop judging our past or present, stop judging our children, stop judging our partners, parents, stop judging the person in the car next to you. No one wins when we give in to judgement. Catch yourself, stop yourself. Judgement is a dirty band-aid for ego that never sticks. See Forgiveness.

LOVE is a lifelong practice. We are creators, carriers and vessels of love. We are meant to hold and keep love for ourselves, give what we create, as well as receive love from others. Love is a superpower and requires energetic balance. If we constantly give all of our love to others, without keeping any for ourselves, our vessel becomes empty, tired, and resentful, and the imbalance eventually becomes harmful. If the love we need is only taken from others, if we are dependent and expectant of others to fill that void in our vessel, we become vampires, exhausting the ones around us, which is also harmful. Finding balance in love is a lifelong practice, not meant to be easy, not meant to be painless and quick. We don’t know balance until we lose it. But with love, we can recover. With love, we can find truth, healing, forgiveness, and let go of judgement.

And with all of these things, WE CAN DO HUMAN.
