The beautiful, hectic holiday is passed. Soon it will be a new year, time to pack the holiday garland and put it back in the recesses of the basement. Some of you are back to work today, back to normal daily life. My fiancé and I chose to take today as a holiday too. To rest and exhale before a weekend of more Christmas parties. Today is our exhale, to practice life in the moment. There is nothing that HAS to be done today, no agenda. I'm grateful for this moment. I'm grateful to be lying in bed writing a blog after sleeping in. I'm grateful for the exhale. I'm grateful to have several possible things I could do today and I'm grateful to feel no pressure for any of them. I'm grateful to wake to breakfast already made from friends of ours, delivered Christmas Eve. I'm grateful for the way the bedroom stays dark but then can be magically cast into light just by opening the curtains. I'm grateful to see all the beauty and peace in this moment, surrounding us. Can you find beauty in the post-holiday exhale? What are you grateful for in this moment? How can you choose to enjoy today, no matter where you are or what you have to get done? May your exhale fill you with peace. May the year end on a good note. Have a beautiful day!
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
