10 days of gratitude: day 6 – MY BELONGINGS!

This morning I woke up, made my tea with my shiny red kettle, poured it into my large Starbucks mug, sat in my lovely sea-foam green chair in my lovely new condominium, with my MacBook Air to write this blog.  After which, I will put on my Canada Goose jacket and Ralph Lauren boots and will drive to work in my SUV.

I elaborated above intentionally … any guesses based on my intro what today’s gratitude is????

Today’s blog post is about being grateful for what I have ….  for my belongings!

My bags, my clothes, my couch, my bed, my shoes, my SUV, my FitBit — everything I own, I’m grateful for.  I’m grateful that I CAN and DO own these things. I have more than some, less than others – but I am still extremely grateful for what I have insofar as my belongings.  I’m grateful that I had the ability to purchase them or be gifted them.  I definitely cannot complain for all that I have and I am so GRATEFUL for it.

Thank you India
Thank you terror
Thank you disillusionment
Thank you frailty
Thank you consequence
Thank you thank you silence

I am truly grateful for all of the things that I do have —  even my pots and pans, my candles, my fan and my duvet — without my pots/pans I could not cook, I could not keep cool without my fan on a hot summer’s day and I could not sleep as warmly without my comfy comforter.  ALL of these little things are important and make my life easier, and for that I am grateful.
