My Zen · The Little Things

The Start of a New Year

“Breathe through it and release what does not serve you” -unknown

As part of my re-organization and dedication to blogging and sharing, I have been going back through some of my old posts. I really enjoyed the topic of identifying the little things in my life that often go unnoticed on a daily basis. Turns out, it has been 6-months since I spent some concrete time reflecting on these things.

Thursdays will be dedicated to gratitude and the acknowledgement of the world around us; a moment to pause and absorb. To reflect. I’m sure additions will be made as time goes on, but with the goal to write nearly every day and post 5 days a week, I want to make some of the topics easier for the time being. Establishing a new habit is difficult, so I am doing what I am capable of.  

As I sit in my still holiday-decorated living room with a temperature of 5 degrees outside, I notice the quiet that fills my house. I can hear one of my dogs sleeping. He looks so peaceful and content. I can hear the sounds of the house, the heater, the wind. It is serene. I love music, but I also enjoy the quiet. The moments to calm down the noise of our busy lives.

This week I have been thankful for:

  • A warm house with a cozy fireplace
  • Hot tea
  • Warm baths
  • Mornings filled with reading and evenings filled with writing
  • The ability to make the choice to write more
  • The drive, time and creativity to re-organize and declutter rooms in my house
  • Beautiful friendships
  • An understanding husband
  • My health

Gratitude is meant for finding the positive moments. Holding on to them and releasing the negativity that is no longer serving us; to no longer allow negativity to impact our perception and energy. To breathe and keep moving with positive energy.

What are you thankful for today?
