Always grateful

ImageI was having a conversation with my best friend quite a while ago, telling her about this diary entry of mine that I have to show her. It was an epiphany, I guess? A real moment of clarity and peace. She suggested, why not put this on your blog? And here I am (albeit a few months later !) ! This somewhat follows on from my previous post.

I have always had a roof over my head, no matter where I was in the world.

I have always had the love and warmth of my parents, sometimes it might not have seemed like it to me, but it was there.

I have almost always had my best friends, no matter where, no matter when , be it night or day.

I have always been protected, kept safe from harm.

Had life been made somewhat easier (in most instances) for me.

Had education, no restriction to broaden my horizons, to seek knowledge. Always had the freedom to express myself.

The protection and support of loved ones, while also having the freedom to follow my path, of my own choosing.

Thus the point of all of this is simply that I have an abundance of wealth, not materialistically speaking, but as a human being.

I ask the Universe for forgiveness for all the times I have complained, cried and been angry for the things I did not get, I lost, the condition I have, the “no boyfriend at this age” complaint etc. , because I realise I have everything for a happy life, right now.

Some people ( children, babies  and adults) do not even have a fraction of all this and still continue living their lives.

I will someday for sure help them. I want to give, share what I have so generously always received from life, unconditionally.

And thus ended my simple and humble epiphany. It was probably always there at the back of my mind but never came to me so clearly and simply. Maybe because it was early in the morning and so quiet around me?

    We act spoilt. We don’t realise it until it is far too late. And, even when we do come to these realisations, we eventually let it subside and we are back to our selfish self again.
    I think, the hardest part is really STAYING in that state of mind/in that consciousness: being grateful.

    By the way… Love the first pic! =)

    Thanks! The first pic was taken completely by accident and not by design (noobs that we were, we did not think of backlight lol)! But ended up a beautiful thing 🙂
    It is staying in that state of mind! Which is why I have a piece of paper that I try to read everyday, the paper/postcard is meaningful in itself as in where I got it from and the message on it 🙂
