This is fantastic! Day 30 on my gratitude journey, one full month; I am celebrating because it is flowing with ease, with grace, because it feels so right and because I have the privilege of sharing with you at such a deep level every day. I am celebrating because my family, friends, clients, Twitter and Facebook friends are writing to me to tell me how much they enjoy and appreciate my daily posts; how the messages they find in them lift them up. I am grateful. Thank you. I appreciate YOU. I started this blog because I have so much to be grateful for; and now, because my daily connection with you I have so many more reasons to appreciate every moment.
This morning I woke up late, because I did not sleep that well, and felt a little rushed and frazzled. As I was getting ready for my day, I realized that even though I felt rushed, I still took my time in the shower, got dressed with clothes that pleased me, cooked a beautiful breakfast and enjoyed eating it, had my espresso and allowed time to put on my make-up. As I witnessed my morning activities I asked myself: why? why not skip make-up, get dressed quickly, forget the espresso and rush through my breakfast?
Well, the answer is very simple: because I do not want to rush through my life. Because I want to get ready for every day, as if every day is a great event. You know why? Because EVERY DAY IS A GREAT EVENT!
Every moment of our lives is a reason for living, for feeling, for being and for celebrating, even when we think we have nothing to celebrate. Every day is an invitation to expand, to open up, to give, to forgive, to love, to allow, to trust, to be present, to be authentic, to be grateful!
So I will continue to dress up and get ready for every day because every day is important, wonderful, unique and a great opportunity to live my life.
I am inviting you to do the same. Take your time and dress up every day, because every day is a GIFT! Show up in beautiful clothes, in beautiful colors. Show up as yourself every day, ready to appreciate and celebrate the beauty, the magnificence encompassed in every day of your life.
