Some days there really is not much more to say than – “I am thankful.”
Certainly, some days it is not easy to feel or be thankful, but, hopefully, even on those days, there is a way to find something to cling on to that makes one feel even a molecule of thankfulness.
The start of yoga teacher training has made me incredibly thankful for a multitude of things. An immediate reaction to the start of this journey is that my time has become precious. What is important has become more clear and what is not important is not even in my line of sight. I am thankful for this clear vision.
The start of yoga teacher training has also made me even more aware of my body. I am aware of what I am and am not physically capable of doing. Being physically able to practice and to learn makes me thankful.
Being thankful makes me feel good. It makes me feel hopeful and excited and encouraged that I am exactly where I am supposed to be.
Be thankful for one or many things today. It’s infectious.
Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us all be thankful. – Buddha
