I Woke Up This Morning

I woke up this morning and felt….

that maybe I’m allergic to having too many sweets in the house

encouraged that this leap-year I have 366 days to practice self care

resolute to actively work on my happiness project

excited about deepening new relationships while tending to my many precious time-honored friendships

calm as I cheer on my kids as they continue to figure out their niche in the world

apprehensive but curious to take leaps of faith as new roads appear

I woke up this first day of the new year/new decade and knew I would continue…

to love

to breathe

to be present

to heal and grow

to have hope and gratitude

to live

blinders off-face towards the sun

    This is so beautiful, I love it (but would like to point out there’s no allergy to too many sweets because there can never be ‘too many’ 😉)
