I had two short but similar conversations over chat with two friends I have not met for some time; one is a college friend, and one I know from work circles. When catching up, we all usually ask the same thing: how's things? how's life?
One friend asked in general terms, one broke it down into three categories: love, work, friends.
And all I could answer was: everything's great!
Let me be more specific on this... it's not that everything is perfect; everything has its share of problems, but I can handle the problems and appreciate them as part of life. I'm even calmer now when it comes to dealing with noisy doorbells or annoying motorcycles. Well, maybe not that calm... but it's ok.
So, instead of falling in the same trap over and over like before, I want to remember to be thankful every minute and every day....
And if I may recommend to friends and fellow bloggers... take a short look at what you have, and be thankful.
