If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is “thank you” it will be enough. Meister Eckhart
Good morning lovely coaches,
This morning as I drank my morning coffee I thought about all the things I take for granted. Things that are so common in my life I forget to appreciate them as the daily miracles they are. It’s amazing to me, that even though I have a regular gratitude practice still I feel like I allow things to pass me by unnoticed.
Here are a few that I thought of this morning:
I have hot fresh coffee in a beautiful cup.
There is always fresh clean water, just turn on the tap and it’s there.
The air is fresh and clean, I don’t have to wear a smog mask
It’s quiet. There are no airstrikes, no explosions or sounds of a gunshot, no cries of scared children.
I’m warm. If I get cool (not even cold) I turn on the heat in my home or put on one of my many sweaters that are clean and pretty
I am loved. I have a family who loves me. A husband who kisses me good morning and good night every day for the past 35+ years. My mother emails me every morning to say hi or send a joke.
The power is on if it’s a bit dark I just flip the switch and I can see, or turn on the stove to cook breakfast. Just so easy.
I didn’t go to sleep hungry last night. Any time I’m just a little bit hungry, I open the fridge and have a choice. If I don’t see what satisfies my whim I can order take out or go to the store and buy anything I want.
