Today I think of all the blessings in my life that go unrecognized
The things I take for granted
The blessings I fail to embrace….
The flowers outside my window
Being woken up by a big dog that only wants a cuddle
The unused (by me) park just a minute away
The fantastic breeze I don’t enjoy because I don’t step out every morning
The laughter I miss because I’ve not connected with some friends in a while
The joy I miss because I’ve not painted for some days
The peace I am missing out on because I’ve not been writing my morning pages for a few days
The health I’m missing out on
Moments ticking by.
Hours wasted.
Blessings not embraced.

Today, I remind myself

“Embrace your blessings.”


I’ve led such a little life. And even that will be over pretty soon. I have allowed myself to lead this little life, when inside me there was so much more. And it’s all gone unused. And now it never will be. Why do we get all this life if we don’t ever use it?
From the movie Shirley Valentine

embrace your blessings

I leave you with this delightful clip of a couple who don’t believe in wasting time and opportunities to embrace their blessings! Enjoy!
