I needed this reminder today.
I have found myself in a spot where all I want is to pack up and move back to PEI. I have found myself wishing and wanting for something different and not focusing on the fact that we are living a fine life. These words come from a song by Said The Whale and tonight I am so thankful for them.
I have a warm bed, a loving husband, adorable son, fantastic friends, a great family. These are just a few of the things that matter.
What if I woke up in the morning and could do anything, go anywhere, buy whatever I wanted?
Would it make me happy or destroy my life?
What if I woke up and had to declare bankruptcy and had nothing at all?
Would I try to make the best of what I had or let it take over my life and ruin me?
Some of the happiest people in life have nothing. I want to be one of them. I want to be happy with where my life is right now. I want to remember that this is a fine life we are living.
Stop and ask yourself if you could have it all would it make you or break you? Would having nothing make you a better person or ruin the life you have?
Or at the end of the day is this a fine life we are living?
