I’m doing things a little bit differently for Only The Good today.
I had a moment yesterday. I learned, quite by accident, that a very casual acquaintance, who I’d only met once or twice, but who played a pretty important role in a friend’s life, passed away. Quite young, and unexpectedly. It shook me.
So today, on Only The Good Friday, I just want to focus on all the things that are indeed so good, but we may possibly take for granted on a daily basis…
Waking up in the cocoon of your own bed,
The feel of warm water hitting your head as you step in the shower
A plush robe
The smell of fresh brewed coffee
Putting on your favorite pair of shoes
Turning the key in the ignition of your new (or old, but beloved) car
Saying good morning to the coworkers you genuinely like
Receiving a text, email, phone call from a friend
That at your desk
Hearing that song you’d forgotten you love
The satisfaction of completing a project at work
Seeing it is clock out time
Unexpected dinner plans with a friend
Sweating it out at the gym
Taking off your shoes at the end of the day
Lighting your favorite candle
The couch, the television, your snuggie, relax time
A heartfelt prayer of thanks at the end of the night
That moment just before you drift off to sleep, when you realize you’re almost out…
Take a second…count your blessings…Life is SO GOOD…don’t let it pass you by focusing on the trivial details that mire us down.
