I will admit that a portion of what led to the melting point has to do with lack of sleep. And is you notice the posting time on this blog (around 4:30 a.m.) you may notice that the melting point does not always mean a full reset. It did not gain me the promise of a long night's sleep or a fixed phone or less discomfort or even less stress. But it served as a reset for my patience and my emotions just the same.
As I sit here in the dark I am an observer. I observe the discomfort. I observe the quiet. I observe my calmed, reset emotions. And in this moment between the reset from my melting point and the exhaustion of lack of sleep I am calm. I am still.
I'm grateful for this calmness. I'm grateful for the release last night. I'm grateful for the tears that provided relief even without a fix. I'm grateful for a patient and kind husband. I'm grateful to be the observer this morning. And, as random as it may sound, I'm grateful for the fact that one of my kitchen cabinets resembles a sleeping snow owl in this light... like a simple symbol of quiet support.
What is your melting point? How do you find gratitude in the release and reset?
May today bless us all with the supports we seek. May we find comfort in the moments of calm and may we be grateful observers. Have a beautiful day!
