Today I am Grateful…

Today I am Grateful for...My Tea RitualI’ve felt quite lost the last few weeks. Clearly, there has been a lack of gratitude and mindfulness happening up in my emotional centre.

Sometimes, it can be hard to see the bright side, really hard. For so long I’ve closed myself off. I had closed myself off from experiencing gratitude, happiness and opportunity.

The funny thing about opportunity is it only comes to those who are ready for it. Heck, they mightn’t think they are ready but the universe won’t deal you cards unless you can handle it.

This all became so clear to me today when out of no where a rush of gratitude came over me. It came in the strangest form and it reignited the fire inside of me. So now I say, bring it opportunity I am ready for you.

Without further ado, today I am grateful for…

  1. The first signs of tea bag diffusion. I can see it now, the hot water, the steam, in goes the tea bag and bliss. That wondrous moment as you watch golden green colours seep from the tea bag and dance with the hot water. I cannot believe the hold my tea making regime had over me today. I felt so content for that moment. 
  2. Getting the best ceramic cup in the office cupboard. I know it’s just a Kmart mug, but its multi-tonal exterior of pale, pastel teal and the soft grey of a nice little rain cloud just make my heart sing. Not to mention it looks hand-made and fits more tea in it than the others. It was my little win for the day.
  3. Finding my fire. That wonderful moment, that I haven’t experienced in so long. That inner sass, the fire and the burning determination to be the best I can be. It’s slowly coming back. The trick I’ve found is not doing it for anyone else, f*** them all and do it for yourself. 

So go forth, seize the day, or even just get out of bed when your first alarm goes off (not the 3rd or 4th time). Each little win is something to be celebrated. 

What was your little win today? 

Love,
