the good life

It’s days like today for which I am especially appreciative. When nothing of particular merit has occurred — just an ordinary day — but I am truly overwhelmed with gratitude for my life.

Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit. - Thoreau

I woke up this morning healthy, happy and warm. I have spent the day doing a job I love with an amazing group of people. I enjoyed a savory and healthy lunch (green hatch chile stew — yummy!), complemented by a delicious muffin made for me by a dear friend. And, I have laughed more times than I can count. All of this and still half of the day remains. For this, I am grateful — my good life.

More often than not, we concentrate on life’s “big events.” But, it’s in the small things — the moment-to-moment living — that is often left unrecognized and unappreciated. We should all take special care each day to be grateful for the here and now and relish in the moments, even if they are seemingly insignificant. For it’s the moments that truly mold our lives.
