1. Today I am grateful for underwear! I packed my gym bag for Friday's yoga class but opted to walk around Comic Con instead. Yesterday after yoga I'm in the shower and OH SHIT, I realize I don't have any clean underwear. On Friday's I go directly home after the gym so I don't pack any. On Monday's I go to work. Going to work commando while wearing jeans is not cool my friends. Either is taking a shower and putting on old sweaty underwear. What would you have done?
2. I found a kick butt meditation yesterday. I'm definitely grateful for that. The intro is really long and a little hoakie but hot damn. It literally had me in tears, happy tears. Such powerful words and in 3-D audio which is amazing. Check it out if you're into that kinda thing, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ab71jw25KlM
3. I am also grateful for the coffee, breakfast and lunch I prepped the night ahead which totally set me up for a successful next day!
Today I took a walk by myself. Ten minutes of silence. Ten minutes for me. It was wonderful. I am a lot more aware when there's no background noise. Things seem a lot nicer, brighter, clearer. I've gotten into this really bad habit of not spending time alone. Or filling my alone time with "noise". The gym, who's coming with? I go to grab a coffee and I surf the web on my phone while I wait. At home the television is always on. I mush prefer the silence. More silence.
My morning meditation was done outside in the sunshine. I'm going to make that a habit. Meditating outdoors is so much more enjoyable. The wind blowing strands of hair across my face. The sun warming my body, it's bliss. In the evening I stumbled upon the I AM meditation that I linked above. I listened to that for a good hour while laying on the couch. So powerful.
Random Acts of Kindness:
I made an effort to say hello and smile to all the strangers I passed on the street. Some people seemed genuinely put off by it. It's sad that we aren't use to strangers saying hello to us.
That's it for today. It's been a rough one, but you'll hear all about how I tried to focus on the positive despite the negative tomorrow. Goodnight dear friends.
