It’s good to be alive

Today, I am grateful for my senses.  I am blessed with the ability to see, hear, smell, taste, and feel this world and the many miracles that occur every day. Like the sweet chirp of a baby bird that joined me during my meditation, and the grace of two falcons flying in synchronicity. 

I am learning how to catch myself when I begin slipping into victim or martyr behaviors.  

I accomplished smiling when I observed my mind had jumped to future planning.  This is a shift from how I’ve responded in the past usually with judgement “you shouldn’t have done that,” or with shame “what’s wrong with you that you can’t stay present.”  Today, I just smiled, and my heart said to my mind, “thank you, but not now.” 

I delighted watching a small child excitedly consume a vanilla milkshake, in a sound bath with my soul sister, and in dancing to live music for the first time in a long time.
