July 12 - Every Day Grateful
Thursday, July 12, 2018
Today I am thankful that I am feeling tired and happy. It indicates a day well lived.
1.9 miles indoor on a treadmill; .45 outside with the dog. It's HOT here, so that's not too shabby! That's in addition to the habit of the exercise bike this morning.
Today I imbued going to the gym with love. I did not want to be there. I had to work to imbue it with love. I didn't choose the music they play. It's a hassle to change clothes, to have to drive to another location. But I needed to be there. End of workday stress was HIGH, like go run high, but being physically tired I just walked on the treadmill while reading one of my books. As I consciously worked to imbue the gym visit with love, I found myself accepting of the turmoil within. I was reminded of WATERMELLEN's wisdom shared via JEANKNEE, how being in a state of turmoil is normal and natural like ocean waves, the ebb and flow of life. Later, when I imbued walking to the house with love, I found a well of patience with myself while struggling to find the keys in my bag. So imbuing actions with love is resulting in acceptance and patience. Peace. Ironic that the source of peace began as the turmoil of stressors, eh?
