“Start each day with a grateful heart”
What are you grateful for today? It sounds like a trivial question but seriously. I was walking up the stairs with my coffee this gorgeous autumn morning and instead of being grateful, I was irritated with the cat. Really? The cat? But that damn cat had been in our room last night and she kept us up. It really was irritating. However, coming up the stairs, with my coffee (and the key here could be that I hadn’t had any of that coffee yet…) I realized that we had that cat because I am a complete bleeding heart when it comes to animals and we brought her home when she was a week old after finding her under a box, crying and hungry. My decision. My choice. So how can I let that color the way my day begins? Thus, I looked around and began mentally noting what I was grateful for.
A day all to my self to complete projects that have sat idle far too long
A sunny morning- crisp with the feel of Autumn in the air
The anticipation of seeing a girlfriend tomorrow for brunch
And then the usual- healthy children, fabulous husband, beautiful home, wonderful family, food in the fridge, etc… etc…
But how often do I actually acknowledge these things? Not nearly enough, truth be told. So I wanted to remind myself to begin my day going over my list of things that I am grateful for- I want to get into that routine so that my day begins with a grateful heart. For me, it will color the way my day progresses- that is how my mind works.
What are you grateful for today? Truly- I would like to know.
