Yesterday I heard about a family tragedy that (naturally) made my heart stop. This time it wasn’t a clickbaite in my Facebook feed, it was close and it was real.
I thank my ability to alight daily gratitude. My daily acknowledgement of our good health and our very, very privileged life. But also to see and enjoy the small things, like a dog not pulling it’s leash, an evening dip or the public goodbye kiss from my boys. Focusing on what I have rather than on what I don’t. On what I can change rather what I can’t.
I will continue to lead the life I believe is the best for me and the dearest ones around me (with a conscious impact on other people and planet), stand up for things that are important for me, try to separate people from opinion and (try) to have the indulgence when others can’t. I will continue to have an open mind to learn things from others and the integrity to walk away when people cross my invisible line.
At times I will bite my tongue or simply look the other way, but still give me the possibility to rage for things that make me angry.
This will assure me to do want I can to be (and hopefylly make others too) happy, as this is important to me.
