Today I am Grateful for:

My mornings. There is nothing like waking up at 5:00 a.m. getting my coffee and sitting down, by myself, without interruption. I am so grateful for me time to focus on my morning writing, prayer and meditation and blogging. It really sets the tune for the day. As Jackson Browne sings, that Peaceful, easy feeling.

My true feelings. I am so aware of them today. Today's quote of the day from "A Day At A Time" is to constructively learn to listen to myself. I did use to tune myself out and not hear what I was trying to make myself hear or feel. Today, I will remember to own my feelings.

My lists. I never use to keep a list of things I need to get done. But, the older I get, the harder it is to remember what I have to get done. To make it even more challenging I have multiple lists running. Personal lists, project lists, business list. Soon I'm going to need a spreadsheet and a degree to keep up. Actually, it's not that complicated but I am looking for something to keep me on task besides a calendar. I'm now living without Outlook and I'm working from my iPod Touch to be my PDA. I love my lists because even the flightiest ideas that end up on the list sometimes become really good ideas. If I didn't write them down to remember, I wouldn't have and that idea may have been lost.

Violin music by Midori. She is out of this world. Listening to her music I am able to still focus on what the task at hand.


  1. I, too, love the morning quiet time. Have a great day!

  2. I highly recommend OneNote or Evernote. They help me to organize all my random stuff. I am ADD and at 47 it is a bit hard to relearn new habits but if I have the right tools, like in my program, I can use what works. I love your gratitude and peace. Me, too. :-D
