1,000 and counting....

I woke each morning, and went about my daily routine.
Wake, prep, work, meetings, dinner, laundry, chores, dishes, bed.
Wake again and repeat.

I found myself wishing for the weekend.
Wishing for more {free} time in the evening.
Wishing for dinners to be made and laundry to be folded and already put away.
Wishing for more, more, more!

But what I needed wasn't more.
It was more from me that was needed.

I needed to show more patience.
I needed to show more love.
I needed to breathe slower and think kinder.
I needed to show more thanks.

......

Silent gratitude isn't much use to anyone. ~G.B. Stern

......

And so as I work this week to be more positive, show more daily love, and take deeper breaths before thinking criticizing thoughts, I'm also working on proclaiming bolder, louder thanks.
