My cup overfloweth.
In the midst of having recently achieved many of my goals, I find myself exhausted, highly emotional and ridiculously grateful. Just when I feel like I can’t handle another thing, good bad, otherwise, life shows me that I’ve underestimated the capacity of my heart, the flexibility of my mind and the depth of my grit again and it hands me another something or other to be grateful for. Yes I’m being kind of vague and moderately prosaic.
Maybe you’re feeling this way too - That there’s a general abundance happening right now.
A friend called it the “problem of abundance” and I felt she missed the opportunity for alliteration, so I choose to call it the “burden of abundance.” I remember the first time I lived in Vegas a good friend visited and described the town as “Vast Muchness”...
My life, right now = Vast muchness!
For all of it.
I have more responsibilities to more people than I have in a long while. Thank you.
I have more joy and love in my life than I have in a long while. Thank you.
I am so busy I almost can’t look beyond a single day on my calendar before my brain wants to explode. Thank you.
I generally have no idea what day of the week it is. Thank you.
I keep thinking of crazy, creative, fun awesome things I'd love to do. Thank you.
I have friends in my life that may be celebrating their last holiday season. Thank you.
Things I use, things I “need” keep breaking. Thank you.
I found a moment to put up happy twinkly lights around my house. Thank you.
I'm surrounded by people that inspire me. Thank you.
Money keeps flowing in and out when it needs to where it needs to. Thank you.
My schedule keeps getting hijacked by unplanned delays and awesomeness. Thank you.
The autumn air feels amazing on my skin and heavy in my lungs. Thank you.
Every now and then I just find myself crying in the shower, in the car, during yoga...Thank you.
I picked up my guitar today and the beginning of a song came out. Thank you.
That I’m healthy and alive and able to make a list like this. Thank you.
Life keeps handing me lessons, challenges and delights. I can usually recognize how I’ve asked for every single one of them. I don’t really know day to day how I’m going to do all of the “to-dos”. I’m not really sure day to day, what will be asked of me or who I’ll need to be. Somehow each day I keep showing up the best I can. I continue to look people in the eyes with as open a heart as I can offer.
Mostly, I keep saying thank you, because it seems to be working.
