Read that – 1000.
1000 days of gratitude!
That in itself is something to be immensely grateful for.
1000 days in a row I have found something to be grateful for.
Whether it was super easy.
Whether it was super hard.
Whether I cried from happiness that day.
Whether I cried from sadness that day.
Where I looked up to the heavens and thanked those above for what I had.
Where I threw my hands up in the air and questioned if any of this being grateful crap was worth it.
Because as much as I am a self-proclaimed glass half-full gal, practicing new gratitude every day can be an enormous task, when faced with life’s challenges, disappointments, trials, and negativity.
But I have also learnt, there is so much of life to be thankful for.
I look in the simple. The everyday. The ordinary, and the natural.
And I find that some of the best moments are the ones that cost nothing at all, and are always available to me.
That is what I believe to be a rich life… away from any monetary value at all.
And despite all my gratitude towards this important milestone, how coincidental (and you know I don’t believe in coincidences!) that my 1000th post falls on another huge day.
Finally! It was my Mum’s big birthday party today. And I don’t know how, what and why this has coincided the way it has – as like all of life’s mysteries – but I think it is something truly special that her 70th birthday, and my 1000th post, were on the same day.
Not two days apart, tomorrow, or yesterday… but the same day.
I haven’t quite worked out the significance of this at this post midnight hour, but I really don’t mind.
All I know, is just to be grateful.
And I will continue to try doing that for as long as I can. 🙂🙏
