Gratitude Day 4 – Ships of Friends

Life is like a rollercoaster. Some days it feels like we are on top of the world. Other days we wish things were going according to our expectations. This can be compared to the seasons in a year. We go through rough winters that can often shape us and teach us lessons. In spring we sow the needs for our harvest. Perhaps we put in extra hours in building our business or in learning a new skill. By the time summer arrives things are in full bloom and we are starting to harvest from our efforts. During autumn we finish harvesting and also store extras away for when winter comes around.
Today I am grateful for friendships. I am  referring to special bonds that stand the test of time. No matter whether you are going through good or bad times, that friend that is there for you to eat chocolates with, pick you up when you are down and is able to sing back the  song of your heart if you have forgotten the lyrics. These relationships should always be treasured with love.

Gratitude Day 3 – The Shaved Head

Today I talked to someone that only just recently shaved his hair off. I asked why he had made the decision. He continued that he was currently undergoing chemotherapy and his hair had started to fall out. 

I am grateful today that I am healthy and simply to enjoy another day on this beautiful earth. As I write this I was thinking we take the little things for granted until I realised that most often it is the bigger things we take for granted. We take it for granted to be alive. We take it for granted to be healthy and yes we take it for granted to be able to walk. It is often that until we no longer have something that we take it for granted. 

Today take time to enjoy what you may consider normal and be fully present in that moment.
