While eating breakfast about an hour ago, I was trying to think of what I would write for my first Slice of Life post this March. During my yoga training back in 2012, I read a lot of philosophy about the power of the present moment. Live in the Now. The “present” is a gift. If you are too stuck in the past, you will be depressed. If you are too focused on the future, you will be worrisome. On this fine Sunday morning (getting a bit late, but still morning for me) I am going to honor that practice of groundedness in the present moment and share my current situation.
I’ll start by introducing you to my roommates. Julie, my cousin and great friend, is sleeping and will be sleeping into the afternoon because that’s her Sleeping Beauty style. She loves sleep. Her boyfriend, Bill, the man of the apartment, is normally sleeping in with her, but today he went out for coffee with some friends. My reason for sharing is that I will probably mention them again this month, and you can now imagine how quiet and peaceful my space is here alone on the couch with my laptop. I’m enjoying my tall cup of coffee in my fuzzy robe and watching the light snow steadily fall outside my window. I’m feeling grateful to be on the inside of this cozy scene. With easy Sunday Funday plans to get manicures with my mom and sister later, and then dinner with my boyfriend, Adam, later this evening, I’m just overall feeling good about this day.
I hope you’re having or had a cozy morning, too! What are you grateful for in this moment?
