Today I wanted to sit back and reflect on the simple things in life. Living in the world, after all, can get complex so it’s easy to take the small stuff for granted. Perhaps there are areas of your life that are so blessed yet so simple you never notice. By taking the time to intentionally be grateful for the positive nuances in your environment you can expand your outlook to be much more positive in general.
This is what I have been doing this morning and I’m so glad I did. Let this be a cordial memento, and before I finished I want to share 5 things I am grateful for today but previously took for granted.
- The clean water in my city
- The smell of rain
- The dedication of emergency response teams
- My neighbor’s adorable cat
- The sweetness in my toothpaste
