day 7: late night kick and electric boogaloo

ah day 7, has it already been a week *pinches arm* feels like I have been dreaming again. The days are just flying by it seems – how can it already be a week, let alone the 25th of January. Oiy. Anyway, I suppose that it is better to focus on the task at hand, rather than sit here and shake my head in disbelief.

Today, I am grateful for those reminders though that give me a good kick in the rear factor. They make me stop, take note and re-evaluate. Oh, yeah I am hard on myself. I probably didn’t need a million reminders of that fact, but that’s what I have been getting over the past, well at least two months. I know it – ok Universe? I know I am hard on myself, and that I have to stop and give myself a break. I will start today. I am grateful for the opportunity to stop being hard on myself, at least for a little while until I screw up again. I am more grateful for music. I have said thank you before for that gift but today I am saying it again and again. I sincerely love this gift. So much. And of course, I am grateful for friends – especially those who find me late at night/ early morning and offer some reassurance. Finally – I am grateful for the electric blanket during these frigid days… actually, I am grateful for remember where I put it and wrestling it onto the bed last night. I was toasty warm while I was sleeping, which was a big improvement from the night before when I seriously considered wearing a toque to bed. Being warm again warrants a little chair dance I think… why not!?

I am grateful for…

1. the late night kick in the ass to remind me to stop being hard on myself and have faith in me.
2. the gift of music.
3. so grateful for friends
4. finding the electric blanket…. enuff said.

 

Have a beautiful day today. I mean it.

  1. It is good when we learn to stop being hard on ourselves. I think this is a life-time learning curve for many of us. I know I go in spells…and, it’s interesting, there also seems to be a correlation between being hard on myself and being hard on others. Lately, I’ve been allowing others to be just who they are–and then, suddenly, it seems easier to let me be who I am. Have a beautiful day, too!
