mum's thoughts, mum inspires, Thankful Thursday, gratitudeFor this week’s #ThankfulThursday, I am thankful for the precious time given to me so that I can slow down, relish a bit more of life, and fully experience and appreciate what is here and now. Life can really be quite overwhelming and everything may seem topsy-turvy at times, but it does pay to take a deep breath and take a break to re-focus on what’s most essential.

I am thankful for Oprah and Deepak for their free 21-Day Meditation, which is all about the Energy of Attraction. Although I still struggle each day to set aside about 20 minutes of my time to sit in complete silence to do my meditation, I look forward to each session as they are most enriching, not to mention very relaxing, too. It is a perfect way to shake off the cobwebs in the mind and focus on the important and the positive thoughts and ideas.

I am also thankful for the time I spent on the mat today. I have missed a couple of sessions the past weeks and I cannot wait to give my yoga practice yet another go. Although, there are aches and pains here and there due to lack of practice, yoga will always be one of my most wonderful experience and I look forward to doing it again next week. I also had a lovely time chatting and catching up with Tita who was doing yoga lessons since my teacher, Valerie, moved back to Cebu to oversee their yoga center there.

Lastly, as I have always been, I am grateful for each precious time I spend with the little man. I might be a tad busy catching up on a swell of backlogs, but I am glad that he patiently waits for me to finish work so that we can do our early evening run, which he absolutely enjoys.

What are you thankful for today?
