It Has Been The Most Amazing Life
Written by: | Friday, November 26th, 2010
I was struck today during a Thanksgiving celebration with some of my family that we all have had the most amazing lives.
This is not to say that any of our lives are perfect or even easy. They aren’t. We each have had some tough times – in choosing wisely about work and life, finding people to share our lives with, learning to appreciate both what we have and the value of what we have. The same things that others deal with.
But with each challenge has come a greater awareness – a greater understanding of who we are and our internal greatness. Each challenge has helped us become better, more aware and more connected to what it takes to live a great life.
We each are growing and learning; we each are getting better at finding our best fit and feeling like we matter in our worlds. That is amazing.
We have a loving family that can argue with the best of them, and still respect, love and cherish each other. That is amazing.
We have a passion for life and an energy that surprises our friends. That is amazing.
We have come to learn that life is as it is, and our most important purpose is to discover a way to be happy and successful. That is amazing.
We live in a country that allows us to create and achieve our dreams. That is amazing.
So I guess when I get down and wish for some things in life to be different, I must first stop and remind myself how amazing today’s life really is, and how grateful I am am for it. And as amazing as it is today, I know there is so much more to come. I hope you have a great day of thanksgiving and remember to notice how amazing your life is.
