Giving thanks for that which matters in life.

Giving thanks for that which matters in life.

First of all, I am grateful for life itself — it’s a gift that should be treasured every day and not ever taken for granted. Let’s try to make our best of the limited time we get here on Earth and do something that matters, not just for ourselves but for everyone. I am thankful for the opportunities I’ve had to travel, the great friends that I have in my life, new and old, and for my amazing family. Unlike friends, you can’t choose your family, but I really lucked out. I have a great one — the family I grew up with and the one I have grown into. I am grateful for strangers on the street who smile at me or give me some words of kindness, it means a lot. Finally, I am incredibly thankful for all of you who come here and read what I write and make the good life worth living, searching for and writing about. Thank you.
