Just for today, I will not worry.
Just for today, I will not anger.
I will give thanks for all my blessings.
A couple of days removed from the armed robbery in front of my building and following yoga and meditation on this glorious morning, I am in a much better place. There is something to be said for ritual and its ability to bring you right back to the heart of it all.
This morning, I realize that anger, fear and worry will not buy me one moment of peace or safety. So, I let it go. And I am thankful to this person for reminding me to be present and aware, even as I am walking from my car at night. Sounds all mashed potatoes and Pollyanna, I know. But it’s the choice I make today, for myself. Am I 100% at peace? No. But at least I can be present to what I am feeling and free to choose who I want to be in response to this.
Have a great day! It’s a gorgeous one.
I will do my work honestly.
….so I can get out of the office as quickly as possible and enjoy the sunshine!
