One day of gratitude

September 10, 2009

Today I am grateful for waking up in my own bed as I know this privilige does not belong to everyone…

Today I am grateful for having the technology and resources to call my mom in the morning as I realize there are many families for whom this is not possible although they love each other very much…

Today I am grateful for my beautiful family, just as it is, for all we have and do not have, for all we have done and have not dare yet to discoveer, for all the love however hidden it might be at times…

Today I am grateful to take a bus to work as I know many people do not have the luxury…

Today I am grateful for working with people I admire, respect, for people I can work with, argue with, create things together, get inspired, have a laugh or just simply sit in silence together as nothing needs to be said…

Today I am grateful for my job that gives me a chance to aspire and dream every day as well as makes me go crazy in between…

Today I am grateful for getting my outlook mailbox down to zero and having that beautiful feeling that many people in the world would not even understand just because this invention is not present for them…

Today I am grateful for the social technology that helps me to know what is happening with nearly 1000 of my friends all around the world, to ponder on their discoveries and try to guess from their court lines how are they doing today?

Today I am grateful for the possibilities that are opening in front of me when I sit in front of a blank sheet of paper…

Today I am grateful for all the food I have a privilege to eat as it is a privilige that every 6th person on this planet can not have…

Today I am grateful for walking in the park and admiring beautiful trees playing with the wind as I pass along as if to say hi…

Today I am grateful for seeing a snapshot of a football game and for the joy of the team that just scored a goal, helping me to realize the value of playing games just for fun…

Today I am grateful for all who came before me and paved my path and for those who made it more difficult too…

Today I am grateful for the city I live in and for its beautiful streets and houses and the comfort it provides to me as I know not all the cities/places people live in are like this…

Today I am grateful for being on this planet and having a chance to live a life I have. Not better, not worse, not anything else than just mine…

Today I feel grateful because I know it was not a special day. It was an ordinary day. Yet what I got is that if one can be grateful and feel special on an ordinary day, there is something beautiful and profound at play. At the moment we have not figured out a way how we could all feel grateful and beautiful for our ordinary days today. Surprisingly it does not only depend on where we live, what we do and what we own, it is slightly more simple than that…

Today I feel grateful as I have been blessed to make the choices I had made in my life that lead me to this moment. I am grateful for your eyes scrolling down this maze of black and white characters. There are many possible ways for our future, for my future. Only time will show us what choices and creations will support us going forward and which will not. As will for me. Everything can change, at any time, maybe even tomorrow. Yet all is just what it is…

And for that possibility, I am grateful to share with you this deep moment of gratitude for an ordinary day…

What are you grateful for today?
