Today I was reminded that I need to pull my head out of my ass and acknowledge my blessings. There are so many people around me that would kill for the life I live and so many days I forget to acknowledge how truly blessed I am. I forget that all of the little nuisances of life don’t matter five minutes after they happen. During my drive home from work being cut off in traffic doesn’t even cross my mind as I chatter away to my best friend in NJ. Had this same thing happened yesterday it would have probably pissed me off beyond belief.
I used to do a gratitude list everyday but of course as with most things, I got away from that. Even though I know I was a happier person when I was acknowledging my blessings on a daily basis. I don’t know if I will actually create a list but I’m definitely going to set aside a few minutes everyday to say thank you for my blessings. Try it. You might realize that you have more to be thankful for than you think.
Today I am grateful for my healthy child.
That all of my siblings are still on Earth so that hatchets can actually be buried.
Nettie is still making her own decisions.
People who genuinely care about my well being.
AB Facetimed me so that I could see the Sea Lions on the Beach in CA.
Smart Phones so that I can actually see Sea Lions on a beach 50/11 miles away.
Life. All of it. Good Bad and Otherwise.
FUCK. It’s my favorite word!
You. Someone who reads these words that I string together. A writer’s greatest wish is to be read.
