All of us “righteous hippies” out there tend to shrug off our material blessings. We focus all our energy into ignoring our urges to buy silly things that don’t have any real value. But sometimes, just sometimes, isn’t it wonderful to sit amongst all your “stuff” and relish in the life you have made for yourself?
Everything you surround yourself with is there for a reason. Either by your own choice or the fact that someone else thought you might like/need it. Whatever the case, be thankful for what you have!
^ Just watch it, it’s only 1 minute long. Maybe it will change your day.
So today, 3 things I’m thankful for:
1) Our awesomely large 2 bedroom apartment. It has a bedroom just for our bikes and working out. And a deck! And a pool! It’s just large enough for all our things but small enough that it doesn’t take forever to clean.
2) My computer. I bring this thing everywhere with me. I toss it around and then bring it out and expect it to work like clockwork. And it does. I’m very thankful that I had the money to buy a Mac so that I don’t have to worry about viruses or what to do if it breaks.
3) Our double recliner couch. We got it at Habitat for Humanity for $50 but it’s one of my favorite pieces of furniture. It means that we can relax in front of our awesome TV and snuggle up together.
There is so much more but if I just pick 3 then I get to focus on them. Yay!
What are your three things this week?
And please, just don’t forget to smile. Who knows if you will smile at the right person, at the right time, and change their day.
I’m right there with you about the computer ; it allows me to do the blogging/writing and a whole slew of of other things:)
Yep 🙂 “slew” < great word.
My 3 things–my family—my wonderful husband–and last but by NO WAY least my fabulous four dogs!!
