breathe, be present and give thanks...

i looked out my window early this morning and shivered at the temperature.  how can it be only 8
degrees? it's early march, surely it should be warmer by now. but lots should be different by now.
it is sunny but oh so cold.  this has been a long, long winter.
everything feels more difficult than usual, this day has been difficult.
as the sun glistens off the frozen snow banks i know spring will come soon again.  so for now even amidst the tears i know there is so much beauty.  i memorize the fragments of my every day experiences and i know there is so much to be thankful for. i lean my forehead against the cold window and look at the beautiful blue, gray sky and it makes me realize what a small space i occupy in this universe.  there is so much magic but sometimes i just have to remind myself to see it.

just remember when you open your eyes each morning - you don't know what the day will bring. but when you close your eyes each night you know how you contributed to the things you couldn't control.
this week didn't go exactly how i expected, but i have found a peaceful resolution. i felt heard. at times i felt scared and overwhelmed. buy i also felt like i made a positive contribution to an important conversation.
i will look back on today and know i did my best, i spoke from my heart and i saw goodness in people.

thank you from my grateful heart

love sent, xo
