Daily Gratitude - The Gift of Patience

Let's take a moment to appreciate the things that have been happening in your life recently. Today's theme is appreciating the gift of patience. As always, if you'd like to journal along, you can pause after each prompt to give yourself more time to write and reflect. First, let's take a deep breath in. And out.

In our busy lives, with so many places to be and things to do, it's easy to become impatient. When we intentionally recognize the small interruptions or delays in our days as an opportunity to pause and slow down, we can begin to build up our capacity to be more patient, flexible, and present in our daily life. Think of something that happened today that took longer than you thought it should. This could be something like your commute to work, a meeting, or a daily task. What was your initial reaction? How can you show compassion for yourself in a moment like that? Looking back on this moment, was there something unexpected that brought you happiness while waiting - like a favorite song on the radio, an unexpected connection, or a sense of satisfaction from a job well done? Now with this in mind, repeat the following phrases: Thank you for unplanned pauses.

Thank you for the chance to stop and notice beauty. Thank you for my growing ability to be with uncertainty. Thank you for pleasant surprises that find me in challenging moments. To end this session, let's take a deep breath in. And out.

We'll see you back here tomorrow for another gratitude practice.
