Most of us have heard the phrase "home is where the heart is." And about a year ago I began saying "home is the OM within", that universal peace within us. Today I am grateful to be practicing balance and returning to that OM within myself. I'm grateful to know home is a place within me that I carry with me wherever I go. It is a place filled with the love and support of my family and friends as well as the love for myself. It is a place of calm and a place of knowing. I'm grateful for this place. I'm grateful to know I can always return home by focusing on love and centering my breath. I'm grateful for the amazing power of three slow, deep breaths. I'm grateful to wake earlier than needed today to have extra time for self care and balancing before starting my day. I'm grateful to choose the path that always leads me back home, not necessarily to the physical place of my family but to that spiritual home within. I'm grateful for the beauty I see in my world. I'm grateful for the road in this picture as it was one of my favorite spots in youth. I'm grateful for the way the road curves out of sight but continues climbing upward as if promising, despite challenges, that things will get better. I'm grateful for the beauty in today and in this moment. How do you return home to your peace within? May today bless you with all the peace and love that you deserve!
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
