Gratitude, Day 21

[Image source]

It's tough when my choices (or lack thereof) come back to bite me in the ass. Not much to do but keep moving forward.

Today, I'm grateful that there is a tomorrow. "The sun will come out . . ." and all that crap.

Of course, my preference would be timeless nondual consciousness, but lacking that, I'll make do with what I have.

And even on a day like today, I realize that I have a lot. And I have a lot to be grateful for, even when all that seems small in comparison to other parts of my life . . . today.

But there is always another day -- until there isn't.

What are you grateful for?

I'm grateful that I was able to just sit with some sadness this evening -- much more peaceful than all the things I often do to distract myself.

I'm grateful for that mindfulness post you made below. Yesterday I tried that technique: tormented by a particular narrative of some events, I transferred my attention instead to the sensations in the body, rather than the narrative. Amazing, still painful, but amazing. Grateful for something new to practice.

today I am grateful for hardwork. Or rather for when hardwork pays off. I have been involved in a long term project and today I got an affirmation that change is possible.
