I'm grateful to be in the mountains of Colorado. I'm grateful for the gorgeous view around me. I'm grateful that each hiccup and delay on our route yesterday was small and that we made it safely to our destination. I'm grateful to have a day of exploration today. I'm grateful for the cool crisp air last night and this morning that allowed me to snuggle deep in my sleeping bag and sleep well. I'm grateful to renew my spirit and my relationship today as we hike and explore this beautiful area. There's no reason to wait until I am out of balance or until there is strife in a relationship before renewing it. I believe our spirit needs these reboots frequently to keep us healthy and it is important to check that balance before it is out of whack. The same is true for relationships. If we wait until something is wrong then it is a lot harder to go back and "fix" it. Wouldn't it be better to have regular tune-ups? We regularly get our car checked, our teeth and eyes checked, and a multitude of other things inspected to make sure they are still in their best shape. What about your spirit? When was the last time you took it out for a tune-up? And your relationships? When was the last time you did something special when it wasn't an anniversary or holiday? I'm grateful to take time for myself and my boyfriend. I'm grateful to renew and rejuvenate myself in nature. May your day be blessed with a special dose of love. May you find some tranquility and rejuvenation no matter what today holds.
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
