Mindful Monday #19 – Gratitude

Mindful-Monday-2Happy Monday!  There are five days left until I head back to Los Angeles.  As June rolled around, I felt that my time home was coming to an end based on my feelings, realizations and conversations that I had in the transitioning weekend and week.  My month of writing, which turned in to my month of meditation, was exactly what I needed.  The thought “you are right where you need to be” came up a lot this month.  (I will write a reflection piece on my month of meditation/writing later this week.)  Thinking back on the month the over all feeling that I have is gratitude.  I found a quote that speaks to the gratitude that I have in my heart for the past month and a half.

“I write about the power of trying, because I want to be okay with failing. I write about generosity because I battle selfishness. I write about joy because I know sorrow. I write about faith because I almost lost mine, and I know what it is to be broken and in need of redemption. I write about gratitude because I am thankful – for all of it.” – Kristin Armstrong
