Hello, dear Reader!
I have to be honest and share with you that, as I write this, I’m feeling very annoyed.
I’m on my way to a seminar that encourages me to do all the things I don’t feel like doing, so I can create the things that I want in my life and the lives if others I want to inspire.
And I’m sleepy.
I just came home from helping my parents with their move, and all I want to do us curl up in bed for the next 12 hours.
Instead, I’m going to a seminar that will trigger me in every way so I can get out if my own way.
And, as annoyed as I am, I’m also grateful. I’m grateful that I’m making choices that support me in moving forward even when I want to dig in my heels and stop.
That’s #1 in my weekly ritual of listing 5-7 things I’m grateful for.
It’s supposed to happen every Tuesday, but hey… Better late than never, I say.
#2 I’m grateful to have been able to travel to Florida and support my parents at a stressful time.
#3 I’m also grateful I kept my cool. Visiting parents is one thing. Combine it with the stress of moving a 5 bedroom house… Ay-ay-ay!
#4 I’m grateful for my new guitar, and so excited to finally learn how to play now that I will be able to practice!
#5 I’m grateful to the amazing Parashakti, whom I always run into at random times and random places. We flew together today, and she reminded me that I can ask for help.
#6 Relatedly, I’m grateful to all the men who complied and helped me lug my suitcase up and down subway stairs. This tired woman really appreciates it!
#7 This one is kind of for the future: I’m so grateful for my delicious soft bed and the embrace it will enfold me in tonight. Hmmm…
What are you grateful for this week? Please share in the comments.
