1988. Self-gratitude — Self-correction by Editor

I told you this subject was a tough one to cover. I’ve already let lack of clarity creep in. I’ve not been specific enough on one point. So, please grant me the privilege of covering my tracks with this adjustment to our processes of thinking, writing, reading, commenting, and responding.

We are all grateful to some measure for other people and things and what they do or represent to us. I was careless. I intended to exclude that form of gratitude. Being grateful for someone else credits them. Self-gratitude credits you as having both the ability and will to take action on behalf of you and others as you deem appropriate.

My hope is to keep us focused personally. Let the spotlight stay on the gratefulness for what makes you who you are and what you can do. What inside of you enables you to produce the external results that you desire? How grateful are you for the energizing beliefs that stir you to do what you expect of yourself? For example, you’re grateful that you are calm when the children are disruptive.

The example, reinforced regularly in your heart and mind, becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. What you think, say, and do becomes you. To think calm is to act calm. The more calmness you demonstrate, the calmer you get. That is the true end-value of self-gratitude. Step by step each prophecy fulfilled makes you a better woman to and for yourself.

It boils down to this. You are grateful for yourself. I believe by narrowing our focus to personal qualities many more benefits can arise out of this series.

    Got it, Sir Guy! Being grateful for our own good qualities can also motivate us to become better women to have more to be grateful for.:) I need to work on the calmness. Outwardly I seem calm but not always on the inside.
    To quote St. Francis de Sales:
    Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.

    spot on! As one of the ladies states (I am paraphrasing)…. I love it when a handsome man makes excellent points for us to ponder!

    The Royal Couple: By Karen Kellock

    “A lady can change a man and she should change him for once a man meets a true lady he becomes whole–a gentleman. If a woman stays high–honorable–water seeks it’s own level: he elevates and together they become the ROYAL COUPLE.
    It’s the union with a lady that changes a man as both change to become one. We rarely see the mutual admiration and dignity of the royal couple anymore–it’s no more fun as the sacred is made profane. It’s the difference between a beautiful old movie and gross pornography which we all should disdain.”

    Was not sure where to place this. I thought it was beautiful. She is on Facebook for those that may want to know. :o)

      Thank you, surfercajun! Love the description of the Royal Couple. I also notice today there is not only a lack of dignity, but a lack of shame as everything is now “permissible” and nothing is deemed as shameful anymore in our society so people accept and wallow in it. Much respect for self and each other is just lost.
      BUT, it’s nice being on this site, a place where such nice ladies and gentlemen congregate!!!!

  4. This is so good! I’ve been practicing it now for one-two days (I think I began unknowingly when I first found this site) and my life is so full! I didn’t know I could be so happy…that it was within me. The Lord as my guide makes it all the more richer, eternal.

    Your Highness Lauraelizabeth4,
    Welcome aboard. It’s a great day when another pretty woman joins us on this cruise to WhatWomenNeverHear.

    Hi Sir Guy if it applies I would like a glimpse of your original thoughts on this topic. Like any harder truths if there are any. From what I’ve read from these two posts I understand what you’re getting at so I would like to know what is unclear or needs to be better defined?

    Your Highness Joylene,
    It’s coming. I can’t seem to get my organizing mind around it well enough to proceed. I expect something will be forthcoming early next week.
