overflows, bountiful, unselfish…..
Monday morning started off with a cup of warm water, a pup snuggled on my lap and a crisp new crossword. i have enjoyed a good crossword for as far back as i can remember. my grandmother used to cut them out of the local newspaper and mail them to me while i was away at school in reno awhile back. there is something about a blank canvas of words, puzzles, questions that i can really nestle in to. this morning i decided to do the crossword while sitting at my desk. working on proper alignment, I find myself propped upon a block, the healthy alignment of my body allow me to better stay focused for full day of writing. as i filled in each box of letters i glanced down at my desk and directly under my newspaper lay a document i had written up a year ago and taped to the corner of my desk. i chuckled and moved my newspaper aside.
‘INSTRUCTIONS TO LEAD AN EXTRAORDINARY LIFE’
Step 1: Finances Step 2: Physical & Mental health Step 3: Work/Career
Step 4: Time/Life Management Step 5: Relationships
Step 6: Emotions/Integration Step 7: Celebrate/Contribute
i smile and softened back into my seat. i forget my own words, my own struggles, my own advice, often. i take care of the people in my LIFE with great honor. i used to always run out of fuel before i had the chance to take care of myself. a few years ago i decided that my time, my LIFE was a priority and i began to get clear about what i wanted and how best to make it happen, through self-care. I decided to be my own LIFE coach. I decided that listening to my own wisdom, integrating the lessons I had learned from my LIFE was my opportunity for self-care. the best part was that i got to make my own rules. thinking back now i remember asking myself, ‘how can I live in abundance? how can I have everything I want and everything I never knew I wanted?’
and that’s where gratitude showed up….
enjoy THIS day
