52 weeks of gratitude - Week 3

January 15, 2018

Gratitude bestows reverence, allowing us to encounter everyday epiphanies, those transcendent moments of awe that change forever how we experience life and the world

~Saeah Ban Breathnach 

Taking care of myself has always been important, but without a routine, things slowly fall out of place. A missing piece to the puzzle leaving elements lacking. Exercise, but not choose healthy foods, choose healthy foods but drink alcohol, exercise too much and then not enough. Discovering when I want to feel better and get stronger, I must make the alignment in my life to promote change. 

A part of this development arrives with gratitude. My ability to move my body, a privilege denied to many. During a daily walk, a full lap around the track drains my sister, requiring a pause before we continue. This and other struggles remind me of the freedoms afforded in being active. Tangling my thoughts with regret as I ruminate the inability to some as well as the ability of myself and others. A gentle reminder of the grace awaiting us.

This year I will hold gratitude by my side, through each trial and triumph, and each decision that points me closer to my goals. Knowing no matter what I am striving to reach, there is gratitude for where I have been.

    I developed a "morning routine" in Rehab, and after 28 days, brought it home with me. So far, so good...grateful for my "new normal." Love you...xoxoxoxo
