Several months ago I started a new routine of listing out 5 really basic things I am grateful for in my life at the moment. I started doing it on my various social network accounts and finally now I want to keep it up and share it with everyone by doing it here on SHADE.
The list can really be comprised of anything you wish it to be and the purpose is to really have us all, especially at the end of a rough week and/or month to reflect on the positive aspects of our lives or just in life in general, especially when it seems too difficult to do so. So I’ll start with mine and I hope you’ll join me from now on with sharing your grateful 5.
1) My mustard seed.
2) My President is black..educated…highly qualified…and doing the best he can. Sometimes I forget…then I see him in the post, with the Russian President eating a burger and I smile. And then I see the First Lady fighting obesity. And I smile even more.
3) Michael Jackson.
4) Finally understanding and knowing how to build chords.
5) Photographs. They document the things we can’t remember and maybe the things we don’t want to remember. They are our fossils in a way; proof that we existed, had moments and how we were at a very specific moment in time.
So, what’s your Grateful 5?
