I have preached many times the importance of having an attitude of gratitude and I used to do these monthly gratitude posts but took a step back for awhile. I feel like it’s time to bring them back around again. With a lot going on in my life, positive as well as challenging, I find it really important to focus on the positive things in life and less on my worries.
So with that said, let’s dial into five things that I’m feeling especially grateful for this month…
I’ll be honest, this pup isn’t easy. He’s been very upset when I leave and understandably so, upsetting my neighbors but we’re trying some things to see if we can make it any better. I know it’ll take some time for him to get used to our new routine. I’m loving our long walks before and after work and I’m looking forward to some additional leash training so he’ll tug less and to trust him a little more off-leash so I can let him run off some of that puppy energy in the fenced in doggy area of my apartment complex. With that said though, it’s nice having something to come home to after a long day.
Additional Opportunities to Teach Yoga
I started teaching at an additional studio this month which has been great! I’m only teaching Friday mornings but it’s been nice to have a new place to settle in and share my practice.
An Evening at the Spa
My boss gifted me a spa day for the holidays and I used it the other weekend. I got a facial (I think my first ever), a massage, and a pedicure. It was nice to have a few hours to just settle in, close my eyes, and relax.
Feeling some creativity returning again
This is partly in the realm of writing (or rather WANTING to write) but also in regards to my yoga class planning. I’ve been having a lot of fun playing with different flows for my Sunday night class and getting a lot of great feedback.
A strong body and mind
I’ll be honest, I’ve had some days where my mind does NOT feel strong, but ultimately, I know it is because every day, I wake up, I get dressed, and I keep moving forward. My body pulls me through, it’s strong and I know it’s strong. And even in those moments when I feel weak, I still make it through. This is something I’m grateful for every single day.
