I promise that title will make sense by the time you finish reading this post.
So I’ve been sick all week which means I can’t breath or sleep very well. Breathing and sleeping are things we take very much for granted when we aren’t hindered from getting them. How often do YOU sit in your chair and think “it’s so nice to be breathing right now”?
I’ve also had a milk allergy since I was about five or six. That means I haven’t been able to have ice cream FOR AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER. All you lucky people out there who don’t have dietary restrictions, how often do you look at a glass of milk and think, “I’m so glad I can drink this”? Nope. You just chug it down, toss the cup in the sink, and go on with your life.
My point is, stop. Stop being too busy and rushed to realize and enjoy the things around you. Be thankful that you’re healthy and can eat whatever you want. Be thankful that you can walk and have two strong legs. Be thankful that you can talk, see, hear.
Stop taking things for granted and slow down to experience what’s in your life and be thankful for it.
