Sometimes I wake up and feel absolutely thankful that I’m even alive. That I also have a loving husband, doting mom by my side and they fuel me (together with other people who love me) to chase after my dreams wholeheartedly. That I’m healthy and there’s no need to worry about constant medical care, or daily survival for that matter. That the place I live in is safe, there’s no need to constantly fear of reckless danger lurking by, robbing anyone especially women of their dignity. That I’m blessed to even be able to get to choose my food and even taste some of the best there is out there. That I can travel across continents without needing to try sneaking out of anywhere… and I can create my own adventures, with my own rules.
Today was one of those days.
It was a special 1st Jan, none like my previous ‘let’s make a list of resolutions & do some reflecting of the year that went by’ days.
I felt a huge surge of bliss through my heart as I counted my many blessings that I’ve been showered with in my past 26 odd years. And felt eternally grateful for those experiences.
Happy New Year to you my friend.
I hope that 2011 will bring you even more dreams to chase after, people to love and you to be loved by, friends to laugh with.
