So, in a return to gratitude, I’d like to enumerate some of what I am grateful for: Health, Family, Friends, Love, Financial stability, Pets, Coffee, Wine, Independence, Growth. My health and financial stability allow me the strength and wherewithal to spend time with my family, friends, pets, and to give and receive love. Coffee and wine are simple pleasures that make me happy. Independence and growth satisfy a deep personal desire to excel and expand. All told, they help to make me a happier person.
When I remember to consider them and I am able to remain in the moment (instead of everywhere else where I have no say or power to affect my life). Nothing new, just a reminder to be here now (wasn’t that Ram Dass in the ’70’s?), coming from love (that’s as old as the Bible), and not sweating the small stuff (which is more recent).
This blog, and I, are evolving and dynamic entities requiring time, attention and care. Our quests to seek balance and gratitude as steady imprints are also oft changing, thus the continual need to check in with ourselves and others, with what serves us (and what does not) and what matters.
