I give gratitude for each day, rain or shine, each day is different and so my gratitude embraces, these differences or the sameness.
I get to walk to the subway, almost everyday, when so many people
will drive or take the bus. I treat it like an adventure or a opportunity to be outside, and become more aware of nature and my surroundings.
I savour the unknown in these walks, and how I can customize my walk to the weather or elements, a fast walk, or simply a slow walk to watch an amazing wintery sunset before my eyes.
Picking up the details, often gives me an Ah Ha! moment, whether I am reading a book on how the digestive system works or adding that extra bead dangle to a bracelet I just created. It creates a sense of grace and sometimes brilliance to a situation!
How does waiting impact me, yesterday I was disappointed not to hear from a friend. I turned the disappointment around to say it is still early in the day and I went on with my day. My friend did call later that day. Waiting has made me look at my present moment, and to accept what is. I am patient by nature and to wait gives me an opportunity to pause, reflect, tune into where I am at, instead of rushing through my day, with my head in the clouds as I so often do!
There is more awareness in what I do, and sometimes it is only a fleeting glimpse that holds me there, only to be savoured in my memory later. Like seeing a sunrise, its moving and changing colors.
