Hello there, friend,
The mantra I have been living with this week is "This is it." Whenever I remember, I repeat it to myself. Waking early to write and work? This is it. Walking my daughter to school on a warm afternoon? This is it. Potty training my son? This is it.
This mantra is so grounded in gratitude. It says, be thankful for this, whatever this is, because this is it. I need that reminder every day. I need to see that my life is lovely and wonderful just the way it is, even when the week is hard and gratitude feels far flung. The life I want isn't out there somewhere. It's right here. This is it.
