At work this morning I was filling up the kettle and also a 5 litre bottle we use to save us walking to the kitchen so often (mad I know!) As the water was gushing out of the tap, gratitude suddenly struck me – the availability, the cleanliness, how plentiful it is, how I need it to stay alive! It is so easy for me to go on with my daily life with no thought of how lucky I am.
So, for as long as I remember, I will try to stop and appreciate…
The meals I have. I will try and enjoy each bite.
Each time I use water, whether it be to drink or wash.
The steps I’m taking.
The air I’m breathing.
The things I see, hear, smell, taste, feel.
Material things like my clothes, my phone, my TV, my home, my car.
My friends, family, fellows.
