Curled up in my favorite chair I can hear the wind blowing outside. Sipping on my glass of wine, reading my favorite blogs, and trying to stay focused on the blessings.
Sundays are a blessing onto themselves , yet I don't always appreciate them. Today is one of those less appreciated Sundays. I didn't take the time to rest. I allowed myself to become entangled in worries, concerns and "what ifs. I didn't allow myself to fall into the beauty of the day.
Reflecting on the weekend I realize that I was just not myself. Not sure why, and in the end it may not really matter. What does matter is that I was on edge, full of worry, and short with the people I love the most.
I recognize this which I suppose is a good thing! Yet, I don't want to lose what I have left of my Sunday to more of the same. So I'm trying to do an attitude adjustment, and my blog can really help that process.
As I type my thoughts I can feel the knots slowly unwinding. I can feel myself relaxing my death grip on my worries. I can feel myself start to breathe again.
I suppose I blog for many reasons. Yet, this night I have only one reason. I want to empty myself so I can be filled with whatever beauty the last moments of this Sunday wants to give me.
It's a gift.
I need only accept it.
I hope that all of you have had a chance to embrace the beauty of this day...in whatever form it came to you.
