It’s an interesting question. I sat down this morning and came up with a list. And it was long. I’m sure it will grow. Some of what has happened was overdue anyway. Some things are just a funny bonus. And as I continue to demand to see the good in this…as I continue to be willing to see things differently…I am surprised and comforted and grateful.
Do I still get pissed off? Do I still feel confused about so much perceived lack of critical thinking and lack of common sense? Do I still have moments of longing for things to be the way they used to be? Sure. I’m human, for goodness’ sake. But I know that things will never be the same again. I mean, that’s evolution, right? Things change all the time.
I wouldn’t want be to 20 again. I wouldn’t want to relive all of my mistakes. I wouldn’t want to unlearn everything I’ve learned. I want things to continue to evolve. I want to continue to grow. I want to become more of ME.
And so I choose to focus on what all of “this” has made possible. Why not take some time to sit down and write out your list. It just might surprise you. And it just might even help you move into a state of gratitude that makes everything bearable and gives you hope for a better tomorrow.
