Gratitude for May

The month of May #GratitudeCircle

Month Of May

A month of hard work and then some,

That’s how the month of May went by,

Some work got delayed,

so something else could be finished.

There was stress, but

one who takes care of themselves

will find ways to beat the heat,

without beating the self.

Morning pages filled,

sometimes in google docs,

sometimes in my journal

I was grateful for this art of writing

that clears the clogs

the mind stumble upon, time and again.

Friends and family, matter to me dearly,

Always grateful that I don’t give up on

relationships that easily.

Reading, though slowed down,

Audio books came to the rescue and thus,

Elizabeth Gilbert’s Big Magic and The Magic of Tidying up by Marie Kondo

took a place among my listened books,

time spent was never wasted when it’s on reading

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, the book that

I read after completing my exam

Oh, what a read that was!

The exam I appeared,

the hard-work paid off,

as I add a certification to my resume.

Nothing is Impossible,

if I have the determination that is,

such was my experience always.

Multiple projects are in my way,

and I thank god for that.

Deep breath and I forgive myself

for the mistakes I made

The tasks that failed,

and with gratitude I send

a prayer for all that’s went well

Perfect is an illusion

which only deters my confidence

hence I make do with what I’ve

to accomplish what I can.

Thus, here I am

with a load of thanks

for a month that made me happy

with all these little joys.
