I am glad to be home this Christmas and be with people I love more than I love myself! That's some deep love because everyone that knows me knows how much I love myself.
Truly I am glad...happy... and very grateful. I am going to focus on the last part of how I feel - 'grateful'. I truly am grateful. Grateful to be surrounded by Family. Grateful to have a family. Grateful to have someone to spend Christmas with. Grateful to have somewhere to be this Christmas. Grateful for a wonderful year and more wonderful years to come. Greateful for all the new and interesting people I met. Grateful for the old friends. Grateful for 'Bombay' (Bombay is my dog's name). Many people don't understand or realize how fortunate they are for everything they have. I hope you can take a moment to count all the positive things in life and I hope you pay less attentions to the negatives.
There are always ups and downs in life. You will be placed in positions where you would be uncomfortable. There might be times where you would question 'hope', 'your dreams', you 'path'. Its at this time, you need to realistic face the situation that you are blessed. You are alive. Do you realize how important that is. Start to appreciate life. Appreciate the fact that you are alive, that you are breathing, that you are in good or relatively good health. That you are breathing oxygen. Many of our fellow bothers who share similar DNA as you were not. They did not make it you did.
Be grateful this year that you are alive.
