Gratitude

It’s been a long while since I last wrote a blog. Now that I’m back to blog-writing, I think it would be nice to start afresh with a sense of gratitude.

I’m grateful that I have very loving parents who brought me up well and gave me most I needed.

I’m grateful for all the good friends and fine people that I’ve met throughout the years, especially those who have helped me tremendously when I was in need.

I’m grateful that I’ve found a significant other, who is intelligent, understanding, loving, caring, forgiving and kind. He has a big heart, and he often reminds me to act with compassion.

I’m grateful that I have three gorgeous cats. They’re playful, affectionate and independent; each with very distinct character and personality. It may sound crazy to you, but this is like prelude to parenthood: learning how to grow with something so small, learning how to trust that they can take care of themselves, but making sure that we are here when they need us.

I’m grateful that I have relatively good health. As I grow older, I’ve learnt not to hold grudges, as it’s simply not good for my general well-being. I’m still trying my hardest to have a better sleeping pattern though.

I’m grateful that I’ve understood that most things and most people are work in progress, including myself, so it’s best to be as compassionate and patient as I can.

May we all be able to greet each day, each person and each thing we encounter with gratitude, joy and love.
