So today I awoke early, around 5:30 a.m.   Sleepily, I found my way downstairs to the coffee maker and started a cup.  While the coffee was brewing I scooped out food for our three cats and two dogs, thought of what food I'd send with my son in his lunch carrier today, briefly ran through my to-do list for the day, added another item to the grocery list, and trudged back upstairs, coffee in-hand, to check my e-mail.  Routine.  My ordinary, everyday routine that sometimes makes me feel like a hamster in a wheel, that sometimes makes me quietly wonder..."is this it?"  "Is this all there is?   Are there no surprises left, no magic, no wonder?"

And then I checked my e-mail.  I found this video which completely transformed my day, my thoughts, my heart.   It's a ten minute video that moved me so much, I really needed to share it.   Please take just ten minutes out of your busy day.  I promise you won't be disappointed.


  1. Thank you Tamra. My life has been anything but routine in recent months, so rather than a hamster on a wheel I have been feeling somewhat like a rat in a maze. Gratitude embodies all that I have been feeling and try to feel daily, but sometimes it easily gets overlooked in the busy-ness of the day and it is so nice to be reminded to just stop. Even though I am short on time this morning I thank you for sharing and glad I took the 10 minutes to watch. Oh my God! Om Nama Shivaya! I am so grateful for you my friend!

  2. I'm so happy you enjoyed it - it's very moving isn't it? I hope things even out for you soon. I know what it's like to feel like a rat in a maze! Thank you for posting, my friend.
