I am grateful for gentle sunlight sloping through my window —warm, not too pale, nor scorching. And the loud chorus of cicadas, reminding me that I have not looked up from the computer screen for hours.
I am grateful for the sigh that goes through my whole body and cuts through the anxiety that rests in my belly and cries out that I don’t have time for this.
I am so grateful that I have time for this!
And grateful, too, that this— stopping, breathing, noticing, seeing, hearing, lightening, opening, loving, thanking— does not take much time at all. Its effect is immediate and transformative!
