Do you ever have those days where you’re just like, “Damn, life is good!”?
The contentment that comes along with those days is the best. When I realize how lucky I am to just be alive and just to be able to experience things I find myself wanting fewer material objects. It’s almost as if my priorities are able to shift and the things that are supposed to matter, you know, the guts of life, are aligned to where they’re meant to be. (See this related post on gratitude.)
When I’m feeling grateful and content, I have enough, I am enough, and I’m not on the hunt for anything else. I’m able to just be right there.
Gratefulness equals contentment in a lot of ways.
Right now I’m grateful for: rain storms, being cold but then getting warm in a blanket, getting hot in the sun on a bench during lunch-time, getting things checked off my to-do list, packing supplies and stationary, frozen yogurt, seeing inside people’s lives through Instagram (I love how you can get to see what people’s lives look like all around the world and it doesn’t matter what language you speak because the images supersede the language barrier. The photos are insights into lives I wouldn’t otherwise get to see. It’s really pretty cool… can you tell I’m hooked?:)
What are you grateful for right now as you read this?
