It is very early here on the west coast. 

I have, in this moment, before the sky stretches from black to gray-blue, a cat curled up next to me in the bed (purring deeply), hot coffee on my nightstand, crisp air floating in from the open windows and a profound sense of gratitude for all the tiny things in my life that make me smile and fill my soul with meaning. I truly love moments when I can stop all the churning in my mind, and all the busy making in my life, and just feel grateful.
A while back, in one of those weird poetic moments that come over me, I wrote on Facebook
 that you don't have to be religious, or even believe in God, to know what it feels like to be blessed. Do you find that's true? I hope you do. happy monday friends. xxoo


  1. Beautiful words. I think gratitude and feeling blessed come from the soul. I don't think you have to believe in a God to feel blessed, but I do think you have to believe in life. Xx

  2. So beautiful and I agree with you. If you are passionate about the things around you and the people you hold dear, gratitude and blessedness tends to flow in ever so easily.

  3. Definitely, so true! And your early morning sounds lovely. :)

  4. A lovely post. I feel very blessed, and I do know exactly what you mean. Hope you had a lovely day, after such a wonderful start to itl.

  5. Beautiful photo - those moments are so special - I treasure them as well. I agree you can feel blessed without putting a label or name on it. It just takes appreciation and awareness.

  6. Beautifully written, I feel like I'm there x

  7. I absolutely agree. I don't have a religious faith, but I have faith in others and myself. I believe that my blessings are not just an act of something .... but a result of having lived a conscious and aware life, surrounding myself with similar minds and hearts and taking pleasure from simple beauties.


hello there! I love it so when you leave a bit of a note to let me know how you are and what you are thinking. I always love to hear about the things inspiring you and moving you through your day.
