This morning I woke up, rolled over and muttered to myself about how much I hated my alarm clock, and glanced at my cell phone to make sure no fires happened while I was asleep. Then I put my phone aside and picked up my book, which is currently Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee. (I should be done this week, finally.) Then, I showered and got ready for work.
Let’s funnel through that deeper:
- I woke up.
- I woke up in a bed.
- I woke up in my own bed in my apartment- in other words, I had a roof over my head.
- I had a blanket that kept me warm all night.
- I had warm water to shower with.
- I had eggs to eat for breakfast.
- I have an education that taught me to read.
- I had a book that I could read for pleasure.
All of this before 8 AM.
I have lots of things to be grateful for. I’m currently on a second round of a 21 Day Humanize Cycle. With Humanize, every morning I get a text message asking me what I’m grateful for. Every day it forces me to take a minute to reflect on the previous day and the many blessings I’ve been given. I strongly recommend giving it a try.
Also, dear reader, going into today, I want to remind you that I am very grateful for you. You give me one thing I can never replace and that is your time. I am eternally grateful.
