There are definitely messages behind this dream for me to process and interpret. But the theme of opening my eyes has been a struggle this morning. When the alarm went off a couple hours later (earlier than usual because of work schedules) once again my eyes did not want to open. I laid there an extra fifteen minutes before I could will them open.
Even after getting ready, putting in contacts, and even going outside into the cold morning air with the dogs my eyes still feel heavy and would happily close if I allowed it. But today is a new day, one that will surely be filled with great things and so I keep them open.
I'm grateful to know I slept better last night. I'm grateful for my fitness band that helps record my sleep and how many times I was up during the night so brain can simply go back to sleep. I'm grateful for my husband's alarm this morning that was softer and gently lulled me awake today. I'm grateful for dimmable lights that can slowly become brighter as I wake. And I'm grateful to allow my mind the opportunity to slowly catch up with my eyes and my body.
How are you feeling today? Did you sleep well? What do you see around you that you can find gratitude for this morning?
May today bless you with energy. May you find beauty wherever you turn your gaze. Have a beautiful day!
