PRESENT TO BLESSINGS
Be present to the blessings that fill your daily life!
Friday was a busy, demanding work day for me and my spouse. I’d not planned that we would have the pleasure of an unexpected hour together in the middle of the day over lunch. I was aware of the nagging question in my mind, “How will my work get completed before preparing for dinner guests?” But there we were delighting in our conversation and one another.
I could have chosen to shut the door to the unexpected but instead chose to embrace the present moment.
As we each returned to work I was aware that I had received an unexpected blessing in my day.
The result is a reminder that I have a choice about how to receive the experiences of each day. Instead of lunch with my spouse upending my work schedule it was a gift of gladness in my day. I am reminded that how I approach each moment of the day affects how I receive it.
In your day:
Be present to the blessings that present themselves to you
Name and enter into the moment
Express gratitude for each blessing of the day
Notice how more fully alive you are when you are awake to each blessing of the day.
