100 Wonderful Things

Life passes by so fast some time.  Everyone wrapped up in their lives.  But you know what I think is wonderful?  When I look back at what I have most enjoyed in my life, it’s the experiences I remember.  Not having an awesome ipod, or wonderful computer, or an internet connection.  While I enjoy all those things, and they certainly add to productive and enjoyable environment, many of the things I am grateful for are not things I can buy – they are experiences meant to be lived.

Everyday, I try and take moment to remember what I love.  It comes in all forms.  Sometimes people, sometimes events, sometimes a new toy, and sometimes an experience.  They are things that make me happy, help me move forward to achieve and experience new things.  Things that make my heart happy and my mouth smile.  Things I am grateful for.

Our culture spends a lot of time focusing on what we want.  The next toy, the next house, the next vacation.  But, I find it great to remind myself of all the wonderful aspects of my life.

Sometimes situations are not ideal, but everyday, there can be things you love.  Things you don’t have to be a millionaire for.  Things you don’t have to  travel for,.  Every day more and more and your life can be things you love.

What are you grateful for?  Do you make sure that every day you do something you love, something that makes you happy?  If not, maybe you need to change the way you live.  Life is too short for it to suck. :D
