No – Ordinary – Moment

At the end of the day, let there be no excuses, no explanations, no regrets-

Is it safe to say, given the byzantine nature of modern life, that most of us would admit that we could put gratitude into practice more in our own lives?

I still find myself handing out kindness and gratitude without acknowledging the what and why behind my actions. I fail to ignite a feeling of gratefulness within my heart that will ultimately burn into my memory That this is no ordinary place or period in time – but rather a valuable one. Enriching our acts of “Thanks” – “Gracias” – “Namaste” with feelings of gratitude only serves to deepen our connections moving forward. I have been stuck in “Automatic Politeness” mode for the better part of the year, and I feel its time to put more meaning behind my actions, and deepen my presence in the world.

Daily Meditation:

*BREAKING NEWS* – The Holidays are about to speed our lives up by adding “things” to our already overflowing to-do lists, this is precisely the time to slow down and savor the important moments in life, instead of expanding my holiday shopping list while saying “Namaste” at the end of yoga class.

    Much gratitude for you and your words! Finding the sacred in the ordinary events of our daily lives is part of finding true thanks.

      Its been showing more and more of late through my actions – A quick “thank you” that spills out without much meaning … These little things in life add up if we fail to notice them 🙂

    Oh boy…” Automatic Politeness” mode going on over here, as well. Love to see your thoughts. Take care!

      Thank you so much for your kind thoughts … I really mean this as I gently flip the Automatic Politeness to the off position 🙂
      I hope you are having a beautiful morning!

    Lovely post! And yes, it feels so much more delicious to really feel that gratitude and appreciation!

    Can’t help it, every time I see the words “no regrets” I think of that poor dope with the “No Regerts” tattoo and have a nice chuckle. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend.

      … finishing up the last of the turkey this afternoon for lunch, I’m about tapped out until next year! Short story time – No kidding, while working in Iraq one of the dudes in the unit we were supporting had a “No Regrets” tat that was spelled in correctly! I kid you not, it was spelled just as you put it! It should also be noted that he had a Charlie the Tuna tattoo.
