Wow, I had forgotten what it was like to awaken without an immediate sense of anxiety and dread! The first thoughts that come to my conscious mind of late are worry about situations at school, and then a tightening in my chest and diaphragm, making it hard to breathe. Then I feel a sense of defeat and wish I didn't have to get out of bed at all, ever.
Today, however, I am grateful that I actually feel a sense of happy-for no-reason, even though I still have a day full of meetings and the potential for some kind of work-related conflict. But it all ends by 5 and I have the next 9 days free to restore and rejuvenate. I am grateful for the break, because, I REALLY need it! I am going to Bikram as often as I can walk and I have lots of research to do!
I am so grateful to feel good for a change: physically, mentally, emotionally!
...is practicing gratitude every day for 365 days. Began on April 22, 2016, let's see how life changes over the course of this next year!
