By being present in every moment, you become grateful for all the “little” things you take for granted. The consistency of each sunrise and sunset, for instance. Despite what happens, the world keeps turning and the sun keeps shining. By practicing gratitude for all things great and small, good and bad, you step into your true self and all of your thoughts, beliefs, and actions are centered from your self, rather than from trauma or other shadow parts.
The gift of rest and sleeping in to recharge from an eventful and sad week, and honoring my boundaries by letting me know of plans made so that I do not have to worry.
I can show up and be a better friend, family member, and colleague by being present in my relationships and by reaching out to say hello when someone crosses my mind rather than putting it off, forgetting, or being scared to reach out. I have been reminded recently of the fleeting nature of life and that it can all end in an instant. We are not promised forever.
When I am feeling grateful and peaceful, a warm, cozy sensation emanates from my heart chakra, and I know I am aligned and one with my true self. This usually happens when I am in nature, or have a deep conversation with someone I love, or stop and remain present in my surroundings and notice all of life’s miracles and joys happening all around me.
