Pure and perfectly imperfect moments…….
My favorite time of day is early in the morning, just as the sun is rising. It is still too dark to see clearly, but also too light to be night. It is beautiful to listen to the birds singing different songs; they are the most vocal this time of day than any other here. The air is also the coolest; the breeze is like a kiss from heaven on my face. I can let my hair blow into the wind, close my eyes and for a moment forget all the hardship, for a moment forget I’m in pain. For a beautiful moment every morning, I can stand in pure and perfectly imperfect gratitude and carry that feeling with me all day.
What I choose to focus on each day is where the energy of my body follows. When I focus on gratitude, my body follows and physically, even if struggling, it’s better. If I focus on everything wrong, my body follows, and everything feels worse. For me, gratitude is always the better option. No matter how many challenges I’ve faced in my life, I have so, so much to be thankful for.
