If we were having coffee, I say wow, we are well into December. Where has the year gone? I would offer you a hot steamy beverage of your choice and tell you that we have been busy this year. Moving, jobs, moving again, other jobs. Hopefully we are settled for a while. Well maybe settled isn’t the correct term. We are mostly unpacked. Yes, most of the stuff left is mine. My lovely wife is very efficient at packing and unpacking. Me? not so much. Thus begins the Christmas update.
I would ask how your week has been and what new and interesting things you have seen or learned? It is always interesting to hear what others thoughts are. Everyone perceives things differently. Perception is especially challenging across cultural boundaries.
Gratitude is something easily crosses cultural boundaries. I write a lot about gratitude. I get the impression that a lot of people either do not have gratitude or just don’t know how to properly express it. It’s not that hard. It can start with a simple thank you. Be happy with you have. That doesn’t mean you have to settle for what you have. If you can’t be happy now, what makes you think more of anything will make you happy. Gratitude and happiness are choices. What is your choice?
I hope your week is ending well and that you are safe, warm, happy and grateful. Often we focus on what don’t have or where we want to be and lose sight of the many great things we have in our lives. Appreciate the path you travel for it is uniquely yours.
Don’t forget to stop by Parttime Monster and check out the linky with the other Weekend Coffee Sharers. It is a diverse and entertaining group. You might even want to write your own coffee share post and join the fun.
Please share your thoughts, updates, wants, needs, things for which you are grateful etc. We love to hear from you.
