My wife encouraged me to take steps to go back to graduate school
It reduced my anxiety knowing I had her support. It made me feel closer to her. It helped me get things off my chest.

Es un privilegio tener la compañía de mi gata Malva. No solo por cómo me demuestra su cariño y me acompaña, sino porque además aprendo mucho al observarla y entender qué significa el cariño sin posesión. Hace su vida de gata, incluyendo aquello que me gusta menos, y siempre que puede y estoy en casa se pega a mí porque le encanta estar conmigo un rato, disfrutarnos. En este último tiempo he podio entender cómo a veces los humanos dejamos de ser nosotros mismos o pedimos a nuestras familias, amigos o parejas que cambien algo, por el "bien del cariño compartido". En cambio, con mi gata he entendido cómo una cosa no depende de la otra. Su cariño hacia mí es muy grande, se nota, lo siento, pero no por eso va a dejar de actuar de acuerdo a su naturaleza a su verdadera esencia.
Además del amor que me transmite y me hace sentir, me enseña y me maravilla de lo simple y maravillosa que es la vida.

Durante finales de la semana pasada y lo que llevamos de esta, estoy poniendo en práctica el inicio de dos hábitos nuevos y me están sirviendo para tener más claridad sobre mi vida.
Me ayuda a tomar conciencia de lo afortunado y abundante que soy

What a wonderful weekend!
There was nothing specifically amazing about the weekend...maybe it was the extra hour we got back from Daylight Savings time or something, but I've come back to work with an extra shot of energy for the week!

When I walked into the kitchen this morning Rana had already poured a cup of coffee for me.
Its made me feel cared for. It was a small but thoughtful thing.

Even though he doesn't like to go camping, he went with me anyway because he knew I really wanted to go with my friends.
I always have more fun when he is around, so it made my experience even more enjoyable!

He makes me laugh!

I cleaned the house without being asked. My parent's have been stressed lately so it was really nice to take that off of their list to do.
I felt happy that I did it for them because it did not require much effort!

I am so grateful for the flexibility my job offers in working from home.
Today, my daughter and I walked to school with our youngest dog while my husband rode the bike with our son and our other dog. It makes me feel so good to be able to do these things with our kids. They look forward to it and so do I.

Andi, a member of the Buddhist group that I belong to, thanked me profusely for getting her the information and getting her approved for a scholarship for the meditation retreat held on Saturday.
I was very glad that I could give her the opportunity to share in our day of silence and meditation. It is important that these teachings are made available to as many as possible.

My husband turned 60 yesterday and I spent the day reflecting on how much we have grown over the years. I was barely 19 when I met him, but looking at this bald, white bearded, aging man I still find my heart is a flutter when I seen him. I am so grateful he fell in love with me.
We have made our lives together.

I saw a homeless man sleeping in a chair outside of the grocery store. It was very cold and he was huddled up. I went in to Starbucks and bought a $5.00 gift card. I tapped him on the shoulder and told him I thought he should go inside and get something warm to drink.
The man was groggy and a little dazed. He did not thank me. He just looked surprised. But I took the surprised look as a type of thank you.
