Friday morning, the sun is still sleeping, the birds are just about to wake up themselves and Me? I am already awake. I take a deep breath and smile. Today wouldn’t be just another day. No, today I am grateful.
I am grateful for the quiet before the suns “hello”. I am grateful for the slight breeze and the light bird chirping and for being able to stay in bed a little longer, grateful for my soft covers and soft pillows. Gosh, I am grateful I have a bed. I am grateful for the willpower I had this morning to absolutely kill my run and the cold shower afterwards. I am grateful for nice smelling body lotions and comfortable clothes, and of course for the ability of making myself a bomb as breakfast, that I enjoyed while the sun kissed my temples in the garden.
I am grateful for people who bless our days with their beautiful voices that dance in melodies. And I am grateful for having a voice myself to sing with them at the top of my lungs! I am grateful for my eyes that let me see the beauty in this world every single day! I am grateful for everything I was able to achieve and everything I will still achieve. Heck, I am so grateful to be able to smell the flower I bought yesterday and the lunch I am about to devour. I am grateful for long phone calls with loved ones and the fact that laughing is the best cure to anything. I am grateful for my cat, who trusts me enough to lie next to me wherever I go and his soft fur that feels like silk between my fingers.
There is a lot of things I am grateful for. Everyday brings new treasures that make me fall in love with life all over again. But Most importantly, I am so grateful for the person I see in the mirror. I can call myself darn lucky for being that beautiful human being I see the reflection of every day, with all her treasures, scars, flaws and edges!
And Today I hope you too are grateful to be You.
