Gratitude turns what we have into enough.Aesop
The weekend is here, and with it, for many of us, a time for rest and relaxation. This marks the one week anniversary since I started this journey into writing, and today I want to reflect on joys I have in this life.
I have a beautiful family.
I have true friends.
I have been blessed with talent, passion, support, opportunities, and the ability to thrive.
I do work that I love that gives me purpose.
I have wonderful coworkers.
I travel the world.
I am free to fulfill my intellectual interests and hobbies, to enjoy literature and art.
I rise with the sun to enjoy a cup of coffee.
I listen to the cries of seagulls and see dolphins play in the ocean from the southernmost point of an island on the Gulf of Mexico.
I watch the sun set over the sea, with my toes in soft white sand, listening to the surf, and revel in tropical air that feels like velvet.
Everyday, I wake with a grateful heart and wonder that I have so much in my life.
I am more than blessed, and every moment I give thanks for it all.
Everyday my heart echos, I have so much.
And there, I find my happiness.
I wish you all the same.
