Life is sweet

Instead of doing a personal post yesterday, I switched up the kitchen babble above on the headline — after all, since Google only wants to index the first thing it comes to, I’m not quite sure exactly how this will play out in the great “search engine” escapades, but then again — I’m not exactly out for a popularity contest. I’m not wanting the blog to ever grow to the point where it becomes a job and not something that I enjoy.

Life, however, is sweet. There is so much to be thankful for: the ones I love, my true love, my friends, you, my home, my job, even my bills.

Okay, you’re going to write me off as a nutjob for being thankful for my bills, but that means that I have the things that I enjoy, but that I still realize they’re only “things”. If I were to wake up tomorrow and they were gone, yes, I’d be sorry, I’d probably even cry (yes, I’m a guy, and I cry), but it’s the people in my life that mean the most. I’m not one of those smarmy people who tell you to love everyone — in fact, I’ll tell you right off the bat that there are certain people I cannot stand to be around, and that even the sound of their voice causes the hair on the back of my neck to stand up. The thing I remember, hwoever, is tha tI don’t allow them to have free rent inside my head.  That’s precious real estate, and they don’t deserve it.

So, as we approach Canadian Thanksgiving, take some time to stop (or at least slow down) and give thanks for all the good things in your life. More than likely, there’s a lot more than you can initially name.
