Day 162

July 29, 2013

I’m grateful I discovered mindful meditation. I’m grateful that instead of being angry that I woke up too early I re-framed the sleeplessness into an opportunity to pick up the toys in the basement (something I wasn’t able to accomplish this weekend).


My basement will never look this good unless my children move out of the house.

Instead of letting my anger pick away at my soul, I used it to go on a run this morning with DinaP. I ran faster than I normally do, which was a good way to work out my aggression.


I’m grateful the weather is so nice today. Truly, this time of year is usually 99% humidity and temperatures in the 90’s. I’m so grateful that the humidity has been low and the daily highs no more than 80 degrees.

I’m grateful for my senses; they enable me to be present to the moment, which is curbing the pull toward nervous breakdown. I have to be strong for my family right now. As scary as that is for me, I know I can do it.

Family Day: The Five Senses

I’m grateful for a healthy body.
