grateful…

for allowing my heart to ache some, it comes and goes occasionally.

for taking a rest when needed,
for reading a good book,
for clouds dancing…

for mental stamina,
for not attaching,
for timing of the universe.

And realizing that if the world ends tomorrow, I’ve had a good life.

Grateful for embracing simplicity, it allows me to gradually purge from my life those commitments, activities, and people that do not benefit me in some (positive) way. The extra time I consequently gain can seem like vast, empty stretches of wasted potential. But as I learned to slow down (since the early 2008), I know that eliminating unnecessary rapidity from my experiences allows me to fill that time in a constructive, fulfilling, and agreeable way. I can relish my morning rituals, linger over quality time with loved ones, immerse myself wholeheartedly in what I have to do, and take advantage of opportunities to nurture myself every single day.

Grateful today for simple pleasures – a good mug of coffee, a great meditation sessiom, houseplants, embracing imperfection and getting some work done.🙏🏻
