Gotta Wake Up Slow

This morning I woke up with anxious feelings. Already I was making to do lists for the next couple days, thinking about all the things that I need to get done, and I was almost forgetting that it’s still just Saturday!

In order to ground myself, I picked up my guitar and recorded a quick cover of Jack Johnson’s “Banana Pancakes”. Perfect reminder that you don’t need to get everything done at once.

I hope you are all enjoying your morning. Sometimes we just have to relax and let go to really notice the beauty all around us.

Counting my blessings. I have this life to live, I’m physically able to walk/run/take care of myself, my whole family is living underneath one roof and I am healthy. I’m in a much better place than I was a year ago. I’m able to gain perspective and not let my anxious feelings overtake my life. I am striving towards better days, one day at a time.

I’m going to a great University, I live in a country where I’m able to publish my individual thoughts on the internet without censure from the government. I’m able to take classes talking about different religions at my University! I think a lot of people take it for granted that we don’t have to worry about religious persecution here.

What things are you thankful for?
