Sometimes we just need to slow down and hit the brakes....screech! It's fast-paced world with way too much noise, running around, work and family demands...with all the stress it's easy to forget to be grateful for what we have.
It's no wonder so many people don't hear or feel their own intuition or can't meditate due to their monkey brain hopping all around, Bring on the peace, for crying out loud. The craziness has to come to a HALT.
It helps to take a few minutes when we are feeling like a mouse on a treadmill to just sit or lie down and be quiet. Don't think about what you don't have, instead focus on what you do have. Roof over your head? Grateful. In good health? Grateful. Food in your cupboard? Grateful. Children, relatives, friends, family? Grateful.
I was quickly jolted out of my stressful morning when I received a phone call from a friend whom I haven't heard from in quite some time. This hilarious women, who seems to have it all, terrific marriage, beauty, great job, good sense of humor called me to let me know what was going on with her. Cancer. Emergency surgery, chemo ahead, staging of cancer that will dictate how much this will affect her life even more than it already has.
I am grateful for her friendship. I am grateful for too many things to even list. Is my life perfect? No. Do I get stressed, down, caught up in a whirl wind of worry at times? Yes. I've learned to take 10, or 20, or as long as I need to get quiet and centered. Life is not always easy, but it's good.
Name 3 reasons why YOU are grateful?
Love - Deb xo
