I have been meaning to write a new post for a long time now. Half a year it turns out! It is 2014. Wow! Anyway a friend sent me a link of how someone had recorded, with a photo, something that they were grateful for each day of the year. http://www.upworthy.com/you-take-zillions-of-photos-with-your-cellphone-why-not-try-something-new-with-them?g=2. It gave me an idea and inspiration.
I am of course grateful for a great many things in my life and am also guilty of not remembering to be as often as I should. In reflection, I am grateful for ……………….. in 2013.
Fireworks – living in the city and caught by surprise that we can see fireworks from our balconyÂ
Walks – for the amazing experiences of our walks
Chance encounters with wild animals and none attacked us
Sunsets because they are beautiful
Freedom to be silly
Narrow alley ways because it is a reminder to not eat too much
Luxurious baths – ahhhhhhhhh
Reaching the summit
Homemade coffee in a thermos because it can be taken anywhere
Street Art because some people have such amazing talents
Experiments because they can succeed or fail really badly
Celebration, family and a hearty meal
Celebration, family and big cake!
Surviving the cold to be able to enjoy the scene
Playing games and laughing silly
Meeting new friends, learning to move and breath in synchrony together
More experiments – with Malaysian food that I miss and also keeping to traditions
Colours and fresh food
Strong and beautiful trees. Â And the refreshing smell of Eucalyptus.
New technology – no more stitching of panoramas
Chance discovery of amazing places
Beautiful scenery and sounds
Trying new things
A pattisier in the family – we are never short of sweets
Always putting yet another layer on – I am almost never warm enough
Very impressive Lake
Unimpressive Lake – they deserve to be appreciated too
Unclear instructions – sign says no climbing, technically I didn’t climb
Small things and simple names
My shadow – that means the sun is shining
Small things because they are pretty
Foot rubs, Â back rubs and belly rubs
Idyllic picnic spots
Sunshine and looking forward
I am looking forward to 2014 and hope to remember to be grateful for not only big things but little things as well.
