It's Good To Be Me

I'm feeling very thankful today. I'm sorry in a way that it is someone else's suffering that has put me in a position to feel so darned happy about my own circumstances. But this is how we often see clearly just how good we have it, is it not? It's good to have our eyes opened to the truth. But to be honest it would be even better to see it clearly WITHOUT needing to compare our blessings to someone else's troubles. The truth is that I should be taking the time to thank the gods, the universe, whoever for all that is good in my life on a daily basis.

It's amazing how when you don't take the time to think about the good, all you manage to see is the bad. And then you get drug down into a pit of misery and fear. And that stuff is magnified way out of proportion in you head, just like with a fun house mirror. All because you forgot to see the really good stuff going on. 

I used to belong to a website that allowed you to share your blessings with others on the site. Or you could keep it private if you wished. You could even have the site share with facebook. The point was to make a habit of expressing gratitude. Somewhere along the line the website quit working right. I think it is now defunct. Sad face.   :(

But do I really need a website to help me with that? Am I not capable myself of just putting it out there? I can do it. I need to do it. Today in my journal I wrote in length about how thankful I am for so many things in my life. That's a start. I think it's good to let it be known out loud too. I believe words are powerful. And I believe in living by example. So here I am world, grateful as all get-out to be alive, healthy, in a solid loving relationship, working towards a dream and enjoying(mostly) the process with my sense of humor still intact.    :)
