I'm grateful for another Chiefs win yesterday! I'm grateful for a wonderful evening conversation with a friend. I'm grateful to be open to possibilities. I'm grateful for a wonderful nights sleep and these awesome morning temperatures. I'm grateful for rain on my roof in the wee hours of morning. I'm so grateful for all these things and so much more! Yet I have noticed I have had less patience the last day or two than usual. I'm grateful for this observation and reminder to look within. What needs are not being met? Honestly it is probably a combination of needing a little more alone time, rest, and adjusting to the sun coming up a little later. Today I will take the time throughout the day to give myself several quiet reprieves to renew my spirit and my patience. I have learned that when things are frustrating me outside, it is not that the world got more frustrating, it is that I am having less patience to deal with the everyday stresses. I will make a conscious effort to watch my stress levels and remember to breathe deep and recenter. How is your week starting off? How can you recenter throughout your day? Happy Monday, everyone!
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
