I recently saw a cute post on Facebook.
Things introverts love:
Rainy days, canceled plans, deep conversations, long walks, daydreaming, home.
Yep. I couldn’t agree more.
So, as the introvert that I am, I sit in my comfy chair in my home office on this chilly, rainy morning, warm cup of tea in my hand, cozy cat curled up next to me, I reflect on how good my life is.
I’m living a life that many years ago I wouldn’t have dreamed possible.
A life of passion, purpose, and peace.
This is my morning appreciation practice.
Every. Single. Morning.
I intentionally focus on the good. I feel it in my body. I thank God.
And I dream of more.
Not from a place of discontent but from a place of abundance.
I want ALL the goodness that is available for me.
I don’t want to miss a bit of it.
I believe that desire for more is there for a reason.
I was meant for it.
The more I receive the more I give.
And the more I give the more I receive.
It’s a beautiful dance that we can all learn.
What makes me appreciate it so much is that it hasn’t always been this way.
I’m afraid I learned this glorious dance the hard way and later than I would have liked.
But as I reflect on where I’ve come from and where I am now, I gratefully acknowledge that it was all worth it.
Yes, all of it.
And from this internal place of safety, appreciation, and love that I create with my thoughts, I open my heart and my mind to the beauty that awaits me.
I long for it. I look for it.
And I find it everywhere.
