Today I am grateful for:
- Coffee. It’s been months since I’ve been able to have more a half cup on the weekends or special occasions but now that I have been feeling better again I can once again indulge in daily cups of the brew. It feels good to practice the old rituals and feel that familiar caffeine high.
- Silence. There was a time when being alone with myself was a sure recipe for anxiety. I hated my own thoughts and couldn’t cope with my own emotions, but this year I have really learned to love myself and have found silence to be of a great comfort and peace.
- My bed. My home is my sanctuary, but within my home the bedroom and my big comfy bed are the most sacred places. Here, nothing can touch me and here real rest and self-care can take place.
