I am grateful today to be reminded to accept and work with the whole self, rather than rejecting one aspect as good or bad--which is what is normally taught. I am tired. I can fight that the whole day with caffeine intake, or I can just accept it and work around it. I sat here for an hour this morning trying to figure out why the hell I'm so tired after going to bed early and sleeping through the night (although I did awaken much before my 530am alarm). It frustrates me to feel tired when I want to get up exercise and write or read, but I need to sleep another 30-60 minutes so I can function adequately.
My morning reading was on balance and working the right hand with the left, the bad with the good, etc. So I am grateful to read this so I can work on accepting the parts I've always rejected; whether that is something physical, emotional, behavioral, or circumstantial.
I'm grateful to have time in the morning to pursue my studies, sit and enjoy a delicious cup of hot chai tea, and bring my awareness to a centering spot so that I can begin my day feeling grateful and positive!
