gratitude practice: day 2


after a morning of teaching yoga followed by lunch and errands, i decided to lay down for a bit. i had no intention of falling asleep, just wanted some time to relax and maybe read. the moment i got into bed, the cats jump onto the blankets and want some cuddle time.

not too much later, i started to get drowsy. i set my phone timer for twenty minutes, giving myself permission to take a catnap (literally - ha!). a full hour later i woke up and the guilt started to set in. i didn't mean to sleep as long as i had. my mind started running with the list of things i could've been doing to be more productive.

then i remembered that it's daylight savings time and that we would be setting the clocks back an hour tonight. in that moment, i chose to release guilt and instead be *thankful* that i had listened to my body and given myself that hour to rest and snuggle with my sweet orange kitties.

now tell me - what are you thankful for today?
