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!
...is practicing gratitude every day for 365 days. Began on April 22, 2016, let's see how life changes over the course of this next year!
