Find gratitude through living in THIS moment NOW!
Ever wished that some part of your life would just be done – complete – finished?
I regularly feel that when I’m doing laundry – even though I do laundry every week – and have done for over 20 years. When I’m surrounded by loads and loads of dirty clothes, I inevitably find myself saying under my breath – “Man, when will this ever be done? When will I be done with laundry forever?”
This sense emerged again when my husband and I were cleaning out our rec room yesterday and we discovered at least 4 boxes of garbage/recycle/donate items that had either been missed the first time around or had been left down there, and I wondered when I might ever be actually done with cleaning out the house and minimizing belongings…
And then it hit me that being done probably means being dead. And I know I’m not ready for that yet!
So, what did I learn again? (and by again, I mean, this isn’t the first time I’ve learned it but glad for the reminder :)).
This life is all about being in the process. Appreciating this moment and this life is about the small things. Laundry isn’t my favorite job, but I am thankful that I can do it with relative ease.
Wow – it is so easy to live in the future, wishing away this moment now.
What is just one thing that you might be able to appreciate a bit differently if you change your viewpoint?
For me, realizing that if I didn’t have a home, doing laundry and having clean clothes might be impossible. Gratitude brought me back.
I invite you to experience this moment right now and share it with me. Just hit reply and let me know what you are prepared to embrace with gratitude as you live in this moment.
To peace and gratitude,
PS. I do want to acknowledge that there are parts of our lives that can and will end no matter what – a vacation, a season, childhood. This message is about not wishing away parts of our lives but rather living every moment the best that we can.
