There have been several things today that have gotten me a little riled up today, which, honestly I don’t do THAT often. Of course I have opinions, but I don’t always feel the need to express them, let alone argue them. After all, I’ve come to the conclusion that most people who have strong opinions and want to argue them, aren’t interested in my opinion anyway. And I’d rather not argue just for argument’s sake. So tonight I’ll continue my no soapbox stance and just say that I’m grateful for my life. I’m thankful for where I am and the things that I’ve been blessed with. It’s not lost on me how lucky I am, for while many people may have more than I do, there are so many people in the world who have less. My life may not be everything I imagined or dreamed for myself, but it’s still good. And I’m still plugging along at it. I’m coming to really believe that happiness comes from a daily acceptance of the now and a continued hope for an improved future. After all, what else is there?
