The Feeling

Do you ever get the feeling that you are so lucky to be alive?
The feeling of pure exhilaration; pure gratitude for the life that you have.
Even though things aren't perfect.
Even though you still do not have a job.
Even though you are stressed when you think about the future.
You have a day, a moment where you get "the feeling".
I can only describe this feeling as Heaven on Earth.

Symptoms include:

1. Constant smiles
2. Contentment
3. Lots of laughs
4. A desire to be do better
5. Being utterly exhausted at the end of the day

I love moments where I can feel and experience all the beauty that this world has to offer us.
Moments spent sleeping in.
Moments spent eating a yummy meal with amazing friends.
Moments spent learning something new (in this case, going to the driving range on a gorgeous day)
Moments spent just being outside without a deadline...without a watch.

As you all know, I like to keep a gratitude journal. 
It helps me gain perspective and it helps me to remember that everyday has the potential to be amazing.
Today, I am grateful for sunshine.
I am grateful for music, the smell of banana bread currently baking in the oven, and friends that know my faults...and love me anyways.
I am grateful for possibilities.
I am grateful for how unpredictable life is. For the chance to evolve and to grow.
I am grateful for the person I am: A person that loves people and who desperately wants to make a difference in this world.
I am grateful for a Heavenly Father that loves me and trusts me, even though many times, I am just winging it.
I am grateful for my family and for the unconditional love they have for me.
I am excited for my future and for the challenges and adventures that it will bring.

I'm sorry if this post is too "unicorns and rainbows".....but I am just so happy!

Let's face it, if Dr. Seuss said is true!

What are you grateful for today?

Yay for happiness! It's nicer to see people happy than someone grumpy and get all grumpy too. Glad you're enjoying the unicorn and rainbow juice :P
