Early morning I lye in bed and scribble my thoughts down, before they scatter away from me. So here you go, a short rambling of sorts…
Today I am reflecting on everything I have to be thankful for. I am blessed with a beautiful, healthy family. I have true friends & loving people who support me. A successful business. Clothes. Food in my belly….the list goes on. God has truly given me so much to be happy about.
The other day I was photographing a high school senior in downtown Vancouver. My eyes were opened to the abundance of people with out homes, people just living right there on the streets.
I know there are plenty of people without jobs, people who have lost loved ones, some who are literally starving….. and to think that I have the right to complain about not having enough creamer to put in my coffee this morning…..
Sometimes, I get lost in my own little reality and petty problems. I need a perspective shift. I write this as much to myself as I do to anyone reading it.
WE ALL HAVE SOMETHING TO BE THANKFUL FOR.
Everyday is a new day to make a choice to live with gratefulness for what you HAVE.
To cherish and love the people around you.
To forget worrying about tomorrow, cause what good will that do? THIS is the day to choose to be happy.
To write a POSITIVE Facebook post instead of a negative one.
I look around me. I have so much….
I am so thankful.
As always I’d love to hear your thoughts & if you like this post then please go ahead and “LIKE” it 😉
