It’s easy sometimes to get caught up in our quest to become the person we want to be. To achieve. To accomplish. To gain. But unless we appreciate and give thanks for where we are right now, we run the risk of always chasing. Planning and working to get better, fitter, stronger, wealthier . . .
Today I had an awesome day. I’m grateful that the sun was out. I’m grateful that I have the fitness to bike for five km to go for a swim. I’m grateful for the beautiful lake I swam in. I’m grateful that my washing was drying while I was out swimming and that I have a washing machine at all.
These may seem small things, but I need to remember how many people in the world do not have the opportunities and resources that I have. And while I have dreams – I also love and am grateful for the step-by-step journey I am taking . . .
