Eating for a Dollar A Day and Hungering for Awareness
Wednesday, January 12, 2011
I had a friend over for tea today and we talked about gratitude. She is practicing being thankful for the things that she has rather than focusing on the things she doesn't have. This has been a part of my meditation lately too - spending time filling my heart with gratitude for all the blessings that I enjoy every day. Being thankful that I have warm boots to walk through the snow, thankful that I have a warm house to come to at night, thankful for the friends that encourage me, and thankful for the food I get to eat.
Today we had lentils with our rice, we used two teabags since I was hosting, and our daily total was $1.91.
I end the day happy, satisfied, and very very grateful,
