Happy New Year World. It feels like a fresh start. The sun is shining, the air is crisp and clear and I’m having a good hair day. I ate a little too much last night, but that’s okay. I will just put on sweats that are too big for me and I’ll feel skinny all day long. Today I’ll be kind to myself. I won’t think about anything I haven’t done yet. I won’t worry about the future or berate myself over the past. Today I’m going to be in the moment and give thanks for what I have this very second. A family that loves me. A husband that is good and true and kind. My health (aside from my little nose issue). I can bend my body when I want to, stretch my limbs when I choose, walk or run down a sidewalk to my heart’s content. How luck am I to have the luxury of a body that works properly?
I can smell the fresh scent of my grandchildren’s hair. I can laugh and giggle when I tickle their tummies. I can taste rich dark chocolate on my tongue and enjoy the sparkle of champagne against the back of my throat. I’m warm and safe and content. My life is a good life, especially today.
