I have all I need. That is why when it comes to this time of year and I get asked what do you want for Christmas?
I’m finding it harder and harder to answer that question. Honestly I have everything I could ever want.
I have love.
I have family.
I have shelter.
I have food.
I have friends.
I have community.
I have laughter.
I have work.
I have creativity.
I have passion.
I love the little things.
I love time spent with my loved ones, creating memories to look back on.
I love laughing with my friends, and just being, in the moment. If anything I want more of that.
More of being, living, loving. Laughing. I don’t think I could ever tire of the giggles.
So for Christmas this year I am content with all that I have, it may not be much to others but it is the world to me.
I think loving my life where I am in it and living my best each day with an attitude of gratitude is the best gift I could ever want.
It’s given me peace in the stressful times. Knowledge in the times where I feel lost. Patience in the times where I feel I am at my wits end.
Light in the dark times, where my tears were constant.
My perseverance like windshield wipers on a car, swishing away the daily, chronic pain and giving me a clearer view.
Grace under fire. Beautiful self-love. It gives me the power to love others.
Life is too short to be our own worst enemy. Imagine what you could accomplish if your best friend and number one supporter was yourself?
If the only words that echoed in your mind were positive words of love.
Leaving no room for doubt.
That is epic.
I’m at a pretty cool place in my life, I’m sinking into this skin, and these bones are mellow with joy and contentment.
Feeling satiated in all aspects of life.
If I could ask for anything it would be to pass this secret of life onto others.
Paying it forward in my writing.
