My gratitude journal is getting more difficult as the days progress and perhaps that is the point. Anything is easy if you only need to do it once or a few times. It is the routine and creating of a new habit that takes the real effort. Yesterday I went to a wake, which is plenty of reason alone to be grateful that I have another day. Sadly the wake was for a co-workers younger son, 32 I believe, and this co-worker is like my office mother. She is nothing but light, love, and joy. When I embraced her at the funeral home I wept, and I lost control of my emotions as I felt the sorrow of this loss. I suppose I am grateful that I can be there for someone else. I like to give and to help someone that is in a moment of need. It puts things into perspective for me which I all to often lose sight of. The exercise for today will be to give and judge nothing that occurs. These are part of my morning meditation with Deepak. Give & Judge Nothing That Occurs
If you need a reset I suggest giving this 11 minute guided meditation a shot with an open heart and mind. Peace in abundance!
