Sensory gratitudes on a quarantined Tuesday

Today I am grateful for
a day of consistent sunshine greeting every glance outside
a text from a friend whose newly-remodeled house passed inspection
unexpected smiles of colleague chit-chat pre-IEP meeting
my first-time attendance at an online anxiety therapy group

Today I am grateful for
the soothing Irish narrator for the audiobook Normal People 
streaming TSF Jazz from Paris

Today I am grateful for
a homemade latte with cinnamon, cacao powder, and hazelnut milk
a perfectly ripe avocado to sit atop my madras lentil lunch
a carrot cake snack

Today I am grateful for
a longer than normal yoga workout to start my day
noticing the water I gulp cool the burning anxiety housed in my stomach
mindful deep breaths in I am. right here. & breathes out right now. 
a brief walk to conclude the workday accompanied by Beyonce’s songs

Today I am grateful.

  1. I liked hearing about your gratitudes. I write gratitudes, too. When you realize that we are all writing gratitudes, it seems like the action is a prayer just using different words. We are all praying together. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Given life these days, taking the time to write about the little things is so important. Thank you for inspiring me to do the same as I find myself lost in my head. Your list makes it feel like I am eating lunch with you again. On a writer’s note, very cool use of purposeful formatting in the yoga entry as well as the line “anxiety housed in my stomach” – could totally feel that one!! Ugh. I just miss you!
