This journal entry feels obligatory. I consistently wrote these notes to myself throughout the summer break as part of my morning ritual; I couldn’t miss the last one. Coffee & journaling was the way I started my day most mornings throughout the summer break. I think of the time in the morning as my time. It’s quiet & I can focus. This behavior has brought me a lot of joy this summer. My focus has been consistently reflective over the past 6 weeks. I’d ask myself, what were the highs & lows of the day yesterday?
There are more highs than I think I can count (or rank). The lows were few & far between. I’m completely content. I feel fresh, relaxed, recharged, rested, balanced, happy, suntanned, lucky, hopeful, optimistic & loved. I have an incredible family who supports me & I am so thankful to have this summer with them. I am truly blessed.
