Day 208 - Gratitude
I am grateful for my good health, my resilient body, and my life stamina. I keep learning more and more as I read Deng Ming-Dao's Scholar Warrior and oh, how I wish I had been raised with this philosophy of life. To unlearn all that I have learned, to undo a lifetime of thought-patterns and perspectives, to break down even a few years of repetitive actions--all are great challenges. I look at others who are role borders for both ways of being: how I would like to be and how I never want to become. I learn from both.
This first week of school has been fantastic to the point it feels like the best week I've had all year. As the irony of that plays out at the end of our school year, I am grateful for the changes I have made to accommodate and allow for these amendable class changes. Although most of it is inner work and physical health repair work I have been diligently carrying out. I feel better than I have in months; stronger, healthier, less exhausted! Yay! I keep visualizing my radiant health returning, my vibrant self, my strong body, positive energy, and strong energy...all of it. I am grateful to feel good again and be on the "road to recovery".
