How do you begin your day? Do you wake up to the clanging of an alarm clock or a pet/spouse/child pestering you? Do you woodenly trudge to the kitchen to get coffee? Or do you smile as you pull back the covers and land your feet on the floor?
I’m an early riser myself. I adore the quiet of the morning for it’s when I get the most done. My mind is alert (after my coffee of course) and I can feel the possibility of a new day dawning ahead of me. Sure, there are obligations and responsibilities that I attend during my day, but there are also pockets of time in which I indulge and find the little things that make me smile. And I smile simply because I am here…now…today…in this very moment…and I am grateful for the gift of today.
For you see, even the roughest of days, I do not regret having and believe me, I have endured many a rough day as I know we all have in our lives. But it is in surviving those rough days that I can treasure the days in which my heart is happy. Even in those hard days, I always made sure to find a small moment or two where I could feel my heart no matter if it were sad or glad. I could remind myself that I am here and be present for myself and my family.
So today, let’s start at the very beginning ~ gratitude for being here, for breathing, for moving, for thinking and reading, for loving, for peace, for joy and for you being you and me being me. ♥
We can begin at any moment, so let’s start now! You are worth a new beginning!
