I had a reminder recently, with the anniversary of the passing of a friend, to be grateful for the good things that happen in our lives. I think that often we spend so much time focusing on ‘the next ...’ that we forget to stop and look around ourselves. At what’s really present in our lives already. I am grateful that I have such good friends, who know I care even if it’s been months since I’ve taken the time to write. I am grateful for my health, in whatever shape it may be. I am grateful I have a job I like, and one where the world won’t end if I spend 5 extra minutes snuggling up to Brian in the morning. Mostly, I’m thankful that at the end of the day, I can say I am content with my life. I like my life. And it’s taken a long time to get here.
May each of you find your contentment in any way you can.
