Right attempt number 3 tonight. I really have something I want to say I just can’t figure out what it is. So while my brain slowly searches for the diamond of today I will start by listing some of the things I am greatful for in my life.
In no particular order……..
My Family, Friends, Mentors, Peers. My critics. My health, wealth, peace of mind, My children, my achievements, my lessons learnt, my career, the ocean, trees to climb and the ability to climb them. Love, adventure, hope, the future. My awesome memories, spell check on MS word:-) open spaces, natural surroundings, my diverse exciting country, my dogs, our rabbit, skype. Music, fresh air, food. My freedom. You Tube and you too. My mind, my heart, my love of books. My ability, my strength, my pride. My bed, my spirit of adventure, my love of the outdoors, our weather. The people who show me what it is to be a human be-ing, the people who give me hope, the old man that works in Becker Street who smiles and waves everytime I drive past. My alarm clock, COFFEE. My list could go on the entire night and that makes me feel extremely happy. I am blessed.
We live in a time where everything changes so quickly, we are told that life is a race and you have to work hard and come out on top. You have to learn hard at school and get good marks, you have to study and get a good job. You must rise up the corporate ladder, specialize, do your MBA, don’t procrastinate, youmsnooze you loose. Someone else will take your job if you don’t work hard at it, someone smarted, someone who works harder. Keep going, run the race and finish first. And when we get to the end we are to scared to look back because we know we missed out on most of our lives.
So I am going to take it slow, as it comes, one feeling, one thought, one emotion at a time. No longer will I count the days. I will count the moments and be greatful for whatever each one brings.
