I'm grateful for humor this morning. I woke early and was fully motivated to jump into work, blog about the productive day it was going to be, and plan each minute full of what needed to be done. The universe had other plans. So today I am grateful to un-plan my day. I'm grateful to throw my hands up not in frustration but as an offering to receive whatever is to come. So as I logged on this morning and was greeted with the friendly maintenance screen informing me I would not be working until after 8 and made a phone call to try and check something else off my list and realized that most businesses are, of course, not open before 8 either I un-planned. I moved aside the list of need to dos and asked what I wanted to do. I'm grateful for my bike and the ability to ride inside when the weather is not fit. I'm also grateful on these days to be able to combine it with one of my other favorite activities, reading. I'm grateful to have taken the time to make myself a delicious breakfast and I'm grateful to be back now with my sites up and running and to be feeling even better than I did before. I'm grateful for the hiccups in my plans that make the day even better and I'm grateful to have learned over the years how to roll a little better with the "punches." How can you step back from your to do list today and un-plan? Often I find I get just as much if not more done when I am not driving myself to check off that list. So, how can you roll with what the day brings?
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
