The ability to see past pain.
It reminds me that I am more than a body and so much of what I and all of us are dealing with is the narration in our heads.

For a nice birding outing at Laguna Lake today. Almost felt like a normal Sunday's outing. People were taking the social distancing very seriously.
Fresh air, outside, birds--positive things in this scary time.

I am grateful that I can still have Sunday worship online amid the COVID-19 epidemic and the close down of my church to the public.
I felt strengthened by the words of God when singing the hymns and receiving the pastor's teaching today. I realized how minute and insignificant I was in this vast universe, yet God's grace and blessings have always been with me.

I helped a parent of one of my students with logging into their child's Google Classroom. Afterwards, she took the time to thank me for everything I am doing during this time of uncertainty.
It always makes my day when there are parents who understand the work we put in as teachers and take the time to thank us for it.

A random member of a grad school group recommended focusmate.com - I gave it a try and felt both productive and supported, two feelings I've really been in need of lately. I suppose I'm also grateful to the team that made focusmate, which I think will be pretty helpful while I'm working from home.
Oh! A coworker of mine gave me the contact information for a counselor, so I'm also going to get individual support while I'm struggling with isolation and that's pretty great. Overall, it's been an excellent few days.

I woke up, had a small cup of coffee and a small cookie. Then I joined my online yoga class directly. It was a great class and it was nice to connect and talk with others although it was for a few minutes.
I was happy to have the conditions and the will to do it. I was also happy to take care of myself and my body.

Camryn let me sleep in this morning, he fed the cats and had coffee for me. The best part was him coming into our room and waking me up with love.
This caused me to wake up with a smile, starting the day on a high note.

I sat on the floor on a quiet Friday morning before anyone else had woken up. I had my coffee and some trail mix and watched the neighborhood from my living room windows before starting the day.
It reminded me that I can always tap into that feeling of tranquility when I feel stressed.

I am grateful to God for not giving me what I wanted (second interview for admission to a program).
I have to learn to accept this from a positive perspective - something that I need to learn in terms of entrusting my path to Him and accepting the fact that what I want may not be what He prepares for me. It's a challenge to my faith and trust in Him.

He phoned me from the shop and asked if I needed anything.
Just a random act of kindness and thoughtful

Yesterday, a number of my coworkers and I met together in an informal zoom meeting to just chat and see how everyone has been since our school closed due to the coronavirus a week and a half ago.
It felt great to be able to see my awesome coworkers and chat with them again.

Camryn gives me the gift of good acts, acts of kindness, unconditional love and unconditional generosity. I was challenged last night (3/25) because his new dresser replaced my mirror and wall art in "my" bedroom. But I had to remember that I chose to give this person a home and a chance to start a new life, even when it wasn't convenient for me, I promised, I would not change up on that choice regardless of romantic feelings or whatever else.
It made me grateful I after I overcame my selfish and petty possessiveness over my space because I realized that I would rather have the problem of sharing my space with him than have the problem of failing to cultivate my love for him.
