Being a morning person is one my favorite things about myself. I realize that most people like to sleep in on the weekends, but there is nothing quite like waking up with the sunrise and knowing that I have a full and beautiful day ahead of me. I want to squeeze every drop out of the weekend that I can and Sunday mornings might just be my favorite. I try to sneak quietly out of bed so as not to wake my sleeping husband, who prefers to sleep in, and today was successful. Before even firing up the coffee pot, I took a moment out to enjoy the way the rising sun filters through our home.
This was undoubtedly a morning for reflection, and one of my favorite ways to enjoy moments like this is with a record…and coffee. There must always be coffee.
I am grateful today that despite the difficult time I had last week, it’s long over and I am setting my intention for a successful and pleasant week ahead. I know that it may not be perfect and it will carry it’s own challenges, but I will face them and then let them go.
I am also grateful for pushing myself to go to Crossfit yesterday. I knew that I would look back on yesterday’s post and think I was being ridiculous, and yes, my anxiety about the situation was ridiculous, but it was very real. I am proud of myself for facing it though, and I think from this point on I won’t just be working out in my home gym.
Finally, I am grateful for these heavenly chocolate coconut macaroons. These qualify as breakfast, right?
Enjoy your Sunday and all the good things that it will bring. Also, if you can score some macaroons, I highly suggest it.
