Losing my job
It gives me the time to help my daughters after the recent separation

Each day, I meditate for 20 mins and do a 15 min yoga before I start my day. Today I recognised what a gift this time is, how much I value it and what I get from honouring my commitment to doing it each day.
I feel calmer, more in charge of my life, less stressed and able to direct my attention more sharply. I hold myself better and have better sleep and digestion.

My daughter said something really simple about how loved ones are with us in our hearts after they die.
I don't think she realized how much that meant to me. Sometimes children's observations of the world are so simple, sweet and meaningful.

His generosity made my life easier :)

I am 38weeks pregnant. I had a doctor's visit today with my OBGYN,
It just made me happy when I realized that throughout my entire pregnancy I was able to receive great medical treatment from doctors that I trust.

My husband fell of a ladder on Sunday. He was in pain after bruising and hurting his ribs. I ran to him and rubbed his back gently, not criticizing (he was holding tools, not holding on properly and did not properly fastened the ladder). I just kept saying I was happy he was conscious and then I helped him to get to bed, applied cream and ice, brought water and painkillers. I begged him to be careful because I need him so much. I was patient (which I am very often not) and have been patient and understanding as he has been in pain and complaining for few days.
Closer to him. More attuned.

One of my coworkers had a medical issue yesterday requiring an ambulance. Another co-worker called the ambulance so that I could concentrate on keeping coworker 1 conscious and responding. Co-worker 2 talked to me about the incident afterwards which allowed me to let go of a fair portion of the anxiety I was feeling.
They helped to make a bad situation easier to cope with.

I felt very connected with them

My coworker always keeps me supplied with dark chocolate granola bars, often I will find them sitting on my desk when I arrive or when I get out of class. Today I had already eaten my lunch and was still hungry with several hours to go and he breaks out a new box of bars to share with me.
His granola bar gifts make me feel that I have a friend at work and it's nice to know someone thinks about me. It also makes it easier to work rather than sit there and think about being hungry.

I realized that shaving my head when I was losing my hair from chemo made me feel powerful and strong. There's nothing left to hide behind.

I had my hair cut today by the same woman who has been cutting it for 35 years - she's like an aunt to me.
She's the only person who "knows" my wavy/curly hair well enough to make it look good cut after cut. She's one of the few people in my life with whom I can speak honestly.

My friend, who said she considers herself as family to me.
This made me feel as though my world is larger, that I have more love and connection in my life.

I had a customer who was very frustrating. My supervisor stepped up and cleared it up.
My supervisor gave me ideas of other ways to deal with the situation.

Today is National Caregivers Day and I am so grateful we have Loni to help us out with an aging parent.
She is amazing and with her help my father-in-law is able to stay in his home and we are able to go to our jobs each day and maintain our daily schedules.

I am grateful for the sunshine coming in my office window.
It warms my face and reminds me that I am lucky to be alive.

I caught up with 2 like minded friends and we discussed our learnings from things we attended during the day and how we can use them in our community.
I felt blessed to be able to have wonderful conversations and work on doing good.

I feel thankful for having a supportive team of people that I work with!
It reminded me that work isn't just a place to get things done, but It can also be a place where you find supportive, creative, talented people that help you become a better person.
