Attitude of Gratitude: day 19 and 20

A balmy, Saturday morning that turned suddenly cold and windy. A cold and windy Sunday with dramatic clouds and brightly lit trees.

I am grateful for:

  1. The beauty of nature that always brings me into a sacred pause and helps me hit the reset button.
  2. The honor of witnessing someone in complete vulnerability and the deep connection that can result. And how much more beautiful we all become when it happens.
  3. That so many people are beginning to respond to times of stress by carving out time for themselves.
  4. The freedom of tears and allowing myself to fully feel my experience. And the deep compassion and love that always already exist, just below the tears.

Attitude of Gratitude: day 17

Thursdays are my busy days. And usually by the end of them, I'm totally zapped. But there's still always something to be grateful for.

  1. I am grateful for the opportunity to be of service in this world. Watching people come home to themselves on their yoga mats and watching the full range of emotions that that brings never ceases to humble me. Deeply. To realize that there is always somewhere to deepen and grow into, and to pass that on to others takes my breath away.
  2. I am grateful to have a car and the freedom that allows me.
  3. I am grateful for the people out there who have different talents, skills, interests from me. They bring different parts of me out into the world and present me with new ways to show love and support in my life.

Attitude of Gratitude: day 3

I sit here in this unseasonably warm day, enjoying the breeze and all the colors rattling in the air and floating down in the breeze and I am grateful:

  1. The constantly shifting beauty of this world that is always present, always patient, and always forgiving.
  2. True connections - the kind where two people stand, and share, and make eye contact without thinking of what they are going to say next or where they have to be.
  3. The tears that fall when I see unjustified acts of violence perpetrated against innocent humans going about their business or standing up for their truth. It hurts me deep to my soul and it is through that hurt that I know that I am alive and capable of love.
