We, as humans, find it easy to find reasons to complain and criticize. It takes more effort to find reasons to be thankful. I’m thankful for all the normal things people talk about like a place to live. Food to eat.
I’m Thankful for all my friends. The past friends, who come back into my life. New friends, who I haven’t met yet. Present friends, who keep me sane. Friends in “real” life, and those I only know through the internet. And I’m thankful for the friends I’ve lost. The ones who died and those who just left. They have brought me joy while they were a part of my life. All are like dolphins in my sea of life.
But I am, also thankful for what is normally not something to be thankful for. like, muscles that scream in agony for days after PT, because it means they are still alive and may work again. Rain on a Friday afternoon; more water for the coming fire season. For insomnia. A chance to meet people I wouldn’t have other wise.
I’m grateful for people who are different from me. A chance to understand another point of view.
At the end of the day I have tried to behave in such a way as to bring a smile to everyone I’ve met. If I have any regrets, its that I’ve failed, at this and hurt someone along the way. I never meant to.
