Note to Self (215) Gratitude

Today I’m grateful to be sane. To be healthy. To have a roof over my head. A cute kitty cat. Food. A job. God. Friends. My poodle. A purpose.

Every second I’m awake, I appreciate even the dullest things. It’s part of the journey. A snowflake landing on the tip of my nose, a phonecall, a text message, a puppy on the street. When someone smiles at me or says hello. When someone says thank you.

I can’t throw a pity party for myself because there’s no reason to. The pity went out the door. What remains is peacefulness. Even through the anger. Even through the storm.

Today, I’m grateful to be alive.
