This post is part of an ongoing challenge to share a little joy I have found each day of this year, and perhaps for the rest of my life. I hope you enjoy it!
February 5th, 2020
For the last few days, I have been quite a sickly fellow. I may have become so acquainted with my toilet bowl that it’s about time to give it a special name, but perhaps I will leave that for another day.
Being sick can be a time of reflection, to really recognize all the things you take for granted. Simply being able to walk around and enjoy the sun on your face, eat food without issue, just having energy in general.
Now that I am feeling a tad better today, I just want to give a high five to life. I know it’s taboo to say it in today’s culture, but there can always, always be something far worse that can happen to you. There is always a silver lining, and there is always someone out there suffering worse than you are.
Appreciating your life and what you have the capacity to do, whether it’s as simple as taking a walk, or reading a book, or talking with a friend.
The little things are all that matter in this life.
Find joy in them while you can.
