Grateful for technology like FaceTime. My family has been able to stay connected with my mom who has to completely self isolate due to Stage 4 Cancer. Being able to see her face everyday has kept us all going.
I'm grateful for a healthy body and legs that can take me out in to nature and appreciate the fresh air.
I am humbled by all the good relationships I have in my life. Spending time catching up on the phone with old friends and giving/ receiving true friendship and support during uncertain times has been a true blessing.
My chickens and the worms in my compost that I use to feed them, don’t know about the pandemic. They hang out and chill with me if I’m stressed or not, and talk to each other in the soothing clucking language that is both weird and wonderful.
When I look into my Husband’s eyes, I picture him all wrapped up like a magnificent gift... because, truly, that’s what he is to me and anyone who knows him. Every day I thank him for being the rock to my roll, and the sugar to my spice.
Three good things is a really good thing, and the people who dreamt it, wrote down notes on a piece of paper about it, created voodoo internet computer language that birthed it into being are also helping me remember to remember that good things stick like the sweetest honey to my soul.
I'm able to sketch, draw, and make things each day. It's to a higher caliber of design and detail that it's ever been. I'm grateful for this time to reflect on my work more, and to hone in on my skills.
Poetry. I've practiced poetry since the pandemic, something that I've given up on a few years back. Taking on writing a poem or two daily has been very rewarding for me. I'm able to share my thoughts wholeheartedly.
Plants. Gardening. Having life around me that still thrives happily and provides a happy dwelling.
I am grateful that over time I have developed perspective and therefore realize that how I deal with a situation is at least as important as the situation I am dealing with. Attitude is Everything.
I am grateful for this time to deepen my meditation practice. 21 days in a row. A personal record.
