Grateful that I was able to show up here tonight because it’s already late! While we all want to make the right changes and choices (eat right, exercise daily, have an attitude of gratitude, work hard, not procrastinate etc. etc. etc.), day to day ‘stuff’ just gets in the way, doesn’t it? We mean well but with so many things competing for our attention, it can be hard to do all the things we want to do. So today, I am grateful that I logged in to write out what I am grateful for because I know that when I slow down and start counting the people, the situations, the things, and even the hard lessons, there is a lot to be grateful for. Grateful for superhero shows on TV because I love superheroes! Grateful for my daily 20-minute meditative practice for helping me combat daily stresses. I use Headspace or one of the podcasts from Hay House. I thought I was so tired that I would only be able to write a sentence or two, but as always happens, I remember more things I am grateful for… the ladies who do my eyebrows at the local salon. They are unfailingly cheerful and helpful. I am also grateful for an idea for a book that has been haunting me this last week with its possibilities. I haven’t actually done anything about it, but the idea is just shimmering gently, out there in the distance. Am I brave enough to do something about it? I don’t know.
What are you grateful for today? – Best, Priya
