From another thread:
Twenty-two years ago while kicking drugs, a mentor told me to list ten things I'm grateful for before I get out of bed in the morning. If I couldn't keep track, then to keep a pen and paper by my bedside to jot them down.
I exclaimed, "TEN things?! You've got to be kidding me!" To which she replied, "You're right. Make it twenty."
Twenty two years later I'm still doing it. It's gotten much easier.
My brain still works
I slept in a bed last night
I didn't go to bed hungry
Plumbing (my last place I used an outhouse)
We made rent this month
My book got picked up by a publisher
I woke with no pain today
An unexpected check in the mail yesterday
...the rest are people you wouldn't know or fall into the category of tmi
Ah the unexpected . . . 'always expect the unexpected' . . . as if we can . . . how wonderful . . .
Here is my current top ten . . .
The rain and its absence . . . oh it is back again . . .
New Buddhist and Dharma
Breathing and relaxation
Body and mind
Earth and sky
What are your ten?
