An Exercise in Gratitude, Days 22-24, Blur

October 18th, 2011 by KiHealing1 Leave a reply »

Days 22-24, I must admit, are a complete blur. Typically, I’ll make a note of what I feel grateful for on any given day. I try not to make it a repeat because then I feel as though I’m just staying in my  comfort zone. It’s easy to feel gratitude every day for not getting run over or mugged. The purpose of my exercise in gratitude is to dig deeper and discover what’s on the canvas of my daily ordinary living that moves me to a sense of … “I’m so grateful!”

I’m already noticing that certain days of the week create a challenge for me to find gratitude. In fact, to be honest, it’s much easier for me to find what I am not grateful for. In addition to that, I’m actually sad to state that particular parts of the week seem to be experienced on some kind of auto-pilot mode, despite that I practice to be in the “now” moment by moment. Now, this may just be me (I’m almost sure that it is) but it seems that the more I practice present moment awareness, the less I remember about my days in general. It’s as if nothing really matters; as if most of what happens in my days isn’t memorable enough for me to remember. Then again, I could just have poor long term memory, which brings me to my point in the beginning — days 22-24 are a complete blur. So far, these are the first set of days that I’ve found nothing over which to be in gratitude.
