Well since I can’t sleep I felt compelled to show a little gratitude.
For all that I complain of that which I am different, I forget to acknowledge the beauty in the differences as well. For instance, as long as I am in an enlightened phase I get the privilege of feeling connected to everything. I have stood in the rain surrounded by birds chirping in the trees in my back yard. I just watched them as they sang to me from their perches. It was the sweetest music to hear. I have spontaneously taken my dog for a walk at dawn just to feel the beauty of the sunrise. My favorite was laying face up on a lake while camping… just floating till the search party came. It was just weightlessness and sky. Beyond that in times of spirituality, I am able to feel love so intimately in my grandchildren’s laughter or in my dog laying next to me as I write this patiently waiting for wherever I will wonder to next tonight.
I get inspired to take photographs such as the one I used for my featured image and am overcome with emotion in prayer. I feel excited and at peace. I woke my friend up this morning so excited to share a video about the teachings of Jesus. She actually loves how sincerely passionate I get. Or at least she tolerates it because she loves me.
I guess what I am getting at is that I AM lucky on some levels. I get to experience some of the most beautiful moments because my mind sees it beautifully. That is just such a fortunate side of me.
In this moment I am taking a cleansing breath and I am smiling.
