Thursday Thoughts: July 13, 2023

You woke up today.

Let me say that again.

You. Woke. Up. Today.

What an incredible blessing it is just to be breathing—to be alive.

So many times in life we allow the pressures of the world to sit on our shoulders, causing our teeth to grind and worries to begin piling up within our brain.

We can get so caught up in the things that matter but that don’t matter much.

Sure, it’s important that you pay the bills. It’s important that you have groceries in the fridge. It’s important that responsibilities are taken care of. BUT are you giving these things too much space within your mind? Are they pushing out the more important things? The things that remind you how beautiful your life truly is.

Because these two truths can exist at the same time: The world is chaotic AND Life is beautiful.

They don’t have to exist outside of each other. Life doesn’t just become beautiful when the world becomes peaceful, and life doesn’t lose its beauty because the world is chaotic.

Close your eyes. Take a deep breath. In and out through your nose (because breathing through your nose is best!). Let your shoulders relax and feel light once more.

You woke up today.

What a blessing!

Restart your day because you are allowed to restart it whenever you need to!
