I Am Blessed

I Am Blessed #day1

.

.

I truly, truly am. I am a king to someone. Someone somewhere would kill to have my life. Someone who wants to live in my cramped apartment, having my dull job, riding the noisy crowded train, and dealing with the Chicago cold. Because they see what I take for granted—a warm, safe, clean place to sleep, a job where they are appreciated and paid and have benefits, the ability to fit in with the commuter crowd without getting weird looks, and having money enough for this and so much more. We all dream such big dreams, but we also forget that so many people are just yearning to be stabilize, to have that boring job, to live in that cramped apartment.

.

.

It goes the other way too. There are so many people who are “living the good life” and deal with depression, anxiety, and hopelessness, and who just wish to live my boring life, too.

I have eyes to see this sunrise, I have ears to hear the seagulls cawing overhead. Thank you for my loving family and friends, for my job and my place, for my creativity and my spirit, for all of you and for all who can’t be here to share this.

.

We are blessed and we forget it all the time. It’s part of our minds’ hardwiring and part of our society. Keep reminding yourselves.

.

.

I’m glad I have these opportunities to share my gratitude with you!
