Nothing special happened today... I ran around town and did a couple things... some yoga, ate some yummy sweet potato, with a side of girl scout cookies, (caramel delights, my fav!)... but for some reason I'm really grateful. It's cold and rainy... the sun never showed his face today... but I'm still feeling gratitude for being here. I talked to a few people, some up, most down... but I was grateful to talk to them. My roommate got on my nerves a bit, which we trade off doing to each other... but I'm still grateful for her. Weird... or maybe not so weird.
These are the days that are often forgotten because there's no dramatic event, no tragedy, no new life changing occurrences... but it's the days like these that show you more than most... The ones where things just kinda flow, you can relax, you have no where to be, no one to answer to... and you get to see who you are, how you feel and where you are. Today, I am grateful.
I'm grateful to be in a place where I am truly happy to simply be me... it's taken me years to get here, but boy was it a worthwhile adventure. I don't need the bells and whistles... although I still enjoy them. I don't need to be constantly entertained... although I usually am. I don't want anything... and yet I seem to always have everything I need... and so I am grateful.
I am grateful that I can have days like this, where the world suddenly becomes brighter for no reason other than that's how I see it... where I can be grateful for the simple fact that I am fortunate enough to feel gratitude... where I can be completely here with no thought of then or there... where I can breathe in and smile because I am here... and in moments like this there's no where else I'd rather be but me.
Now as for tomorrow... we'll have to wait and see... but for now... thank you!
Today's Silver Lining:
"There's nothing you can say or do that can change the way I feel about you, thinking of you as time flies, watching the beautiful people go by, I sing in the breeze, knowing every thing's alright with me, with me, and I, I'm smiling from the inside cause we, we've got nothing to hide...I love days like this, yeah, I love days like this, it's here, here comes the sun, whoa, I love the sun, whoa whoa." Days Like This - by Shaun Escoffery
(I like the original video, but the remix of the song... you can decide for yourself which you prefer! )
