today, let us feel the abundance all around us.
here in topanga, california, usa, planet earth, milky way, universe i feel utterly perfect. not perfect as in there is nothing wrong, but perfect that all is as it should be and i am beyond fortunate. i have more than enough love, work to do, food to eat, and goodness to share. i am healthy and all that i love surrounds me. what i have loved and lost isn't gone, she is with me everywhere; in the trees, the air i breathe, and the hugs i exchange today. life is not easy or painless by any means, and nothing stays forever. my youth, my energy, people i love today won't always be around. so what better way to reflect upon my gratitude than to respect this abundant impermanence?
today, let us be thankful for life as is. the good, the bad, the beautiful moments, i accept and appreciate them all. with deep conscious breaths, care from our fellow beings, perseverance to keep pushing through the soil to reach the sun, life is an amazing and mysterious adventure we are blessed to experience. i'll take the pain, the craziness, the mundane any day for the brilliant moments of unconditional love, laughter, and delicious nurturing food.
we are so lucky to be alive, aren't we? i am thankful. thank you.
