I'm driving home on the freeway, it's 9am Friday morning and very little traffic. It's a gorgeous day, blue sky and cool breeze. Favourite music's playing on my stereo, windows down, breeze running through my hair, cigarette in hand.
I'm smiling..... Why? I'm actually smiling. Nothing's changed in my personal circumstances. I'm still broke, unemployed, no commited relationship, on my own and struggling daily to keep my head above water but I'm smiling.
I'm healthy, alive and I guess I'm happy.... right? I must be because I'm smiling. I've not smiled like this for so long that I've actually noticed and had to wonder why?
Rather than dwell on what I don't have I'm grateful for what I do have in life. I'm happy for the gift of life, good health, a beautiful family, great friends and I live in the best place in the world... Perth.
What will tomorrow bring..? I don't know but I'm going to smile no matter what and remind myself that although not in a relationship I am loved, appreciated and that life is to be lived and embrace what challenges come my way and that balance is everything.
I'm a good person at heart and I was blessed with the gift of being alive so I'm going to get on with it and be the best version of me possible and embrace every minute I'm on this plain of existence.
Thankyou to Me for reminding myself that I do count, I am important and my purpose will come when called upon.
