What a beautiful morning! I'm so grateful to wake to the sun shining and the house already stirring. I'm grateful to have taken the time to sleep in and enjoy being woken with dog kisses on my hand. I'm grateful for the delicious breakfast my boyfriend is making as I blog this morning. I'm grateful for the birds' songs outside my window as they sing back and forth. I'm grateful to have a day ahead of family time and packing for my surprise birthday trip. Tomorrow is my birthday and I am being wisked away for a couple days on a surprise vacation. I do not know where I am getting to go but I am so excited for this surprise! I love trips and I have never been on a surprise one before! I used to go on road trips where I would just flip a coin and drive in a direction until I saw something interesting to go visit. Those were great but ultimately I was still the one to choose where my vacation ended. This is a whole new kind of exciting adventure and I can hardly wait! I think it is a great metaphor for love. In love there are times you do not have control of the reigns but, if it is a healthy relationship, you can trust that where it is headed is going to be great! I'm positive this trip will be great! I am not sure if I will have the ability to blog from where we are going but if I am absent for a couple days, I hope you will take the time to find your own morning gratitudes. And I would love to hear them! What are you grateful for today? How can you give up some control and see where the adventure takes you? What inspires your love today? May today bring you a love that strengthens your confidence. May you find joy in each moment. Have a beautiful day (or few days)!
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
