Today I am grateful for another opportunity to align with who I want to be.  Reminders for when we get off track can come from the strangest places, but when we see them, we need to be mindful and pay attention to the message.  I’m grateful to receive that message.

Today I am grateful for the time to focus on things I need for myself.  I have felt myself wildly pulled in a million directions this week and it’s only getting more intense as the holidays approach.  Today I’m taking the time to focus on my writing and to focus on decorating the house.  I LOVE doing that and I get to share the experience with my son.  I’m so excited.

Today I am grateful for the games I played with my son.  We started a little family game night and seeing his face light up as we spent time together filled my whole heart to the brim.  We didn’t play by any rules, I just let him try what he wanted to and he loved it.

Today I am grateful for the reminder of the importance of humility.  It isn’t the accolades or other attention that matters.  It’s about the results and what works for us as individuals.  It isn’t about achieving a certain status- it’s about doing our parts and sharing our messages.

Along with humility, today I am grateful for the ability to apologize.  Being wrong isn’t an easy pill to swallow at the best of times, but to dig your way through the dirt and layers of bullshit you’ve fed yourself for years and to own up to your part in the issue is some of the hardest work you’ve done.  Simply saying sorry can shift the entire story—so do the work no matter how hard it is.

Today I am grateful for the reminder of what is really important in life.  Beyond being who we are meant to be, beyond keeping humble as we work toward our goals, beyond WORKING for our goals, it’s important to love the life we have and to live in the moment.  It’s important to be present in the moment.

Today I am grateful for kitty love.  As I (struggle 😊) to type this, I have two of my three cats vying for my attention.  My Maine coon has won and he is sitting in my lap accepting the occasional head scratches while I type over him.  I wouldn’t move him for anything.

Today I am grateful for help.  I have a lot of work to do and I want to be successful and I am not able to do it alone.  I am grateful for the time I have to work on my projects and to do the things I love doing.  I am grateful for the people who help me get things done and allow me to do the work I need to do.

Today I am grateful for the reminder of who I really am.  Embracing that person is the most liberating thing I’ve done.  Falling into old habits is inevitable—getting out of them is your choice until you are fully aligned and in a state of being your authentic self.

Today I am grateful for another day.  I’m happy that I have the chance to start over again today and to enjoy everything that I am meant to experience.  I’m grateful that I have the opportunity to realign myself and keep working toward my goals.

Today I am grateful to not feel rushed.  I feel content to just be where I’m at.  I know what needs to be done, but I feel content to do things at my pace rather than at the pace of “I need to get this done.”  I am happy to just be.
