After staying up late watching my husband's team play for March Madness I was extremely tired, even after the third alarm. I did a calendar scan in my head and realized an extra twenty minutes in bed would't disrupt my schedule. Even without being able to fall asleep, those twenty extra minutes of allowance made a difference.
I came downstairs and my blog website was acting up. I stared at it for a moment and then went and got a bowl of cereal. When I returned and tried again it was up and running just fine. Another allowance offered me the opportunity to stay positive.
As I sat down to type my dogs decided it was time to go potty. This is an allowance that is extremely important. Walking outside I saw that the nearly full moon was still lingering above the trees. It occurred to me that even with the sun rising there is an allowance for the moon to linger as long as it's cycle dictates. Allowing... and with that, today's lesson presented itself for me. And I am a willing student.
I'm grateful to allow myself extra time in my morning process. I'm grateful that my schedule today supports this allowance as well. I'm grateful to maintain a positive and calm energy as everything works in its own time today. I'm grateful for a bowl of cereal and the ability to hide the taste of the prenatal vitamin with it. I'm grateful to provide water to my body and allow it to nourish me however I may need. And I'm grateful to go with the flow and embrace today's theme today as I find support both in my choices and in nature.
What allowances can you give yourself today? How can you keep positive energy and a positive attitude throughout the day?
May today bless you with patience and positive supports. May your allowances lift you up and support you. Have a beautiful day and weekend!
