I count them everyday.
I'm grateful for...
0 2 | Well-brewed morning coffee. Bitter beans smoothed by skim milk. I drink coffee to accustom myself. The day is war then coffee is armour.
0 3 | Good books with fading yellow parchment to turn. Reading a potential favourite in the morning, retreating to fictional lives than to have my own.
0 4 | Days where I have slow morning routines. Taking long showers and longer time to apply makeup. Clothes set the day before. Preparation for the day to come.
0 5 | WiFi. Because WiFi. Who isn't grateful for internet?
0 6 | Having meetings, no matter how insignificant they may be. It is luck I am able to be busy during a period I shouldn't be. To work and working with what I have is always a pleasure.
0 7 | the Afternoon Drives with best friends. An absolute delight, a highlight of the day. Riding passenger seat beside the kind, the witty and the funny. We discuss life together, in all its sadistic mysteries.
0 8 | Long hugs and kisses. Quick goodbyes. Small smiles. The three words; 'I love you.'
0 9 | TV Shows to wind down my night. As sit on the couch and knit a pair of socks for my nieces and nephews. I watch shows to make me laugh or cry, still a reality I want to consume.
1 0 | Finally a long sleep. When the clock strikes midnight, or one, or three. I can press my head against the bed. And try to sleep. Hoping to never wake up and wake up. Repeating the day all over again.
I don't leave an exciting life. So excitement comes from the little pockets of happiness I find. Which I know I am lucky to have. I enjoy my life for what it is, even if it is hectic. Even if it is tiring. Even if I am ungrateful.
So try to be grateful, as I don't know if I can be.
What are you grateful for?
