5 Things I'm Grateful For

With everything that's happening around us, it's easy to get lost in the moments. Life may pass us by without us realizing the blessings we're endowed with. It's good to take short breathers from time to time and appreciate the good things in our lives.

So why don't you take a pause with me and think about the 5 things that you are grateful for?

Here's mine:

1. I'm grateful for TIME;
time to take a pause and think about what I'm grateful for;
time to rest and recover from life's pressures;
time to do what I love doing - teaching, writing, creating.
time to live life and learn about its complexities.
time to spend with my family.

2. I'm grateful for LOVE;
love from my family who's willing to stand by me even if I have failed them;
love from my friends who value me and my abilities;
love from my boyfriend who's willing to put up with my mood swings;
love from myself, finally.

3. I'm grateful for OPPORTUNITIES.
opportunity to work;
opportunity to discover my interests;
opportunity to discover my skills and talents.

4. I'm grateful for PROVISION of my basic needs.
a roof over my head.
food to keep me from getting hungry;
money for other things that I need;

5. I'm grateful for LIFE.
Life that's wonderful and exciting, though scary at the same time.
