Slowing down for gratitude

The manifestation is complete.  I handed the keys to my ideal renter this week.  Kaley appeared a few weeks ago and fell in love with the place.  She is excited about the area and appreciates the old building charm.  It is the perfect fit.  This entire process has been incredible practice for me to let go, release my attachments and welcome the inevitable change that life brings.

As I adjust to living at home, I am committing to enjoyment.  I vow to cherish each day at home with my parents.  As we all get older, I realize that my time with them isn't infinite.  I promise to savor cooking with my dad, having coffee with my mom and snuggling with my dog.  As I relaxed with a magazine in the hammock today, I exhaled and felt complete relief.  Instead of rushing forward to the next goal, I'm going to slow down and feel thankful.  Thankful for yoga in the morning with my mom.  Thankful for good water pressure in the shower.  Thankful for delicious coffee, a lawn and a wonderful family.  These are my four precious months to take it easy and soak up this time.  Are you willing to slow down today for gratitude?  What are you thankful for?
