I’m feeling very fortunate lately. I also read a blog post recently where I the author wrote all about the things she was grateful for. I thought that might be a nice idea since right now I’m feeling very fortunate. No time like the present to capture those feelings. And it’s all good for me to look back on when I might not be feeling quite so lucky in life. So here goes:
- My beautiful, wonderful, healthy family. I couldn’t be more overjoyed by the loving generous nature of all of them. I’m also eternally grateful that we are all healthy.
- My Swiss financial wizard husband. Without him, I wouldn’t be so fortunate to have an amazing budget to get us through this crazy money spending life. I’m also hugely grateful for having such a similar adventurous soul. I wouldn’t want to travel down this exciting life path without him by my side. Additionally, his gift for languages. Without it, my daughters wouldn’t get to have such a huge immersion in languages – a travesty!
- My tweenager. She has such a kind soul and a strong love for music and writing. She’s my honour roll girl and I love every ounce of her thoughtful person.
- My parents. They made me the quirky crazy person I am today. They put up with all of my teenage years and we made it out on the other side only a little unscathed
- My friends. The friends that I surround myself with are people who are powerful and have a generous loving energy.
- My past. I’m so grateful for the experiences that I have experienced. I don’t like to regret things that I have done as I think that the things you do, are what makes you you. So I only hope that I have grown and learn from my experiences in the best way possible.
- Buying my house about 30 minutes before the market took off. This was one of the smartest (luckiest) things I could have done.
- Being able to offer my children travel and experiences that some people could only dream of.
- The man who saved my dad’s life. Enough said.
- A big back garden with fruit trees to be able to invite friends and family over to have BBQ‘s and snow ball fights.
- A neighbourhood where we know a lot of our friendly neighbours, and where I can walk my daughter to the bus stop in my PJ’s and not feel weird.
I plan to add onto this list as things come to the surface. I like the idea of being able to keep adding on to keep the conversation going in my head and to remember how fortunate I am. This is not meant to be a huge bragfest but instead a place where I can reflect.
