Attitude of Gratitude
I first came across this idea as Project Gratitude through a fellow blogger, Writing Ruth.
I had looked for a way to cherish and acknowledge some things in each day that I appreciate. So much of what I feel in a day rushes through me and I am often left overwhelmed. This list is my daily reminder of what those little aspects are, and how each day has worth.
I am thankful for what I have and where I am, but it’s easy to be complacent or to feel ‘not good enough.’ By being more focused on the little bits that make up my bigger picture, I hope to share more peace with my day.
I will archive my daily reminders and post them at month’s end.
choosing to take care of myself instead of running with the pack (literally) — giving the kids options — the lady who gave me the last available parking space when we both arrived at the same time — that allowing -and doing- what I could in yoga was enough — the feeling after yoga of being present but spacey.
that I can listen to someone who just needed to talk — that a friend decided to book a spontaneous vacation — the lovely snowy photos that my mom sent — feeling efficient when I set my mind to doing the jobs that I have long avoided — that feeling of coming home after the house has been cleaned.
the lovely wrapping in the package I got in the mail — organizing appointments without feeling overwhelmed — that it was so cold, but the sunshine was so brilliant — running in the cold and feeling rejuvenated — that the kids were organized and efficient in getting homework done so they could go watch the parade.
