Isn’t it absolutely fantastic that we woke up to a brand new day Today?!
The moment when sleep is departing our mind and we realize we are alive to see a new day.
The first breath, and then a second and a third.
I resist the temptation of reaching for my phone. I know all the new impulses will disturb my own awakening and gathering of thoughts and emotions for my new day.
Long ago, when I was an emotional mess, I started to give thanks to Life with my first waking thought of the day. It is a rewarding habit. Life becomes a gift and manageable.
Last night I dreamt about my immediate death. And the funny thing is, I didn’t panic about it. I just felt calm and thought “Thank you for this life I’ve had”. And then there was nothing more to it. I recalled the dream when I woke up and I wondered what it would mean. Then I remembered a statement I once heard, that dreaming about death means the end of something and that will lead to a beginning of something else. Today I wonder where my life is leading me now. That is an exciting thought.
Adapting the habit of being grateful really doesn’t matter if you belong to a religion or not:
seeing life and everything in it, and being grateful about it, gives you the value to your life that makes it worth living
….and it really does make a difference.
I wish you a beautiful day!
