Sometimes I feel as if my life is like a Shakespearean tragedy and on other days I feel like I could be an episode on “Seinfeld” (In fact some of the things that have happened to me have appeared on Seinfeld, but that’s for another post).
At the moment, I am trying to find joy in very little things and living life in small quantities.
Most people don’t take the time from their busy life to see the simple pleasures because they are constantly getting bombarded with information from a smartphone or tablet. I used to be like that, but for now multitasking or even having a conversation with more than one person at a time creates concentration problems for me.
I am learning that I must be willing to let go of the life I had planned, so that I can enjoy the life that I have waiting for me.
I am constantly pausing and celebrating the little things, because right now that’s all I can do. It is very important to be grateful for all the things that you take for granted because they could be gone in an instant. I used to be able to walk 5 miles at a time, now I struggle to walk 300 steps.
Look for the little treasures in your life and in each and every day. Celebrate your life, no matter what path you currently find yourself on.
Today, it is about 100 degrees in NYC and I am very grateful that I am able to stay indoors in an air conditioned apartment and not have to stand on a 110 degree subway platform.
What are you grateful for today?
