Sometimes it takes seeing or hearing someone’s experience to buzz our gratitude button.
(and appreciate the life around me)
That I can breathe
(without aid or paying for oxygen)
(unaided, with so much freedom)
(for the beauty of conversations, for music..)
(seeing someone in great pains of acute urinary retention, will no doubt make one thankful)
That I got an education -primary,secondary,tertiary..
(thousands if not millions never got this opportunity)
That I have food and can eat
( some have food but cannot eat, some can eat but have no food…)
I once met a young man who had a condition and couldn’t even comfortably swallow water..not to talk of semi solids or solids.
The list is inexhaustible.
Once I want to start complaining about something, I pause..
..and start being thankful even for having the opportunity to complain..
..a dead man has no complaint.
Everything doesn’t have to be perfect before we remember to be thankful.
Start by being grateful for that imperfection.
I came to learn that ….and I have seen things I had thought to be imperfect blossom into beautiful things.
Love and Light
