Day 70:  Contrasts

Day 70.  Taxes are done.  Lines are almost memorized.  Phlegm is lessening.  It’s a gorgeous day out and I feel blessed, lucky and all around thankful.  The lingering bug definitely sucks but I wake up this morning with a lovely sense of safety and comfort and the crystal clear recognition that I have nothing to complain about.  What an entitled little brat I can be.  I need to work on that.  It’s so easy to lose sight of how good I have it the majority of the time when something shitty shows up and slows me down or stops me from getting to whatever it is I think is so damn important.  Health is what’s important.  Without it, we’re screwed.  As I think outside the box inside the box this morning it dawns on me I always have the contrasts in life to create from—day, night, rich, poor, happy, sad, hungry, full, secure, desperate, sickness, health, alive, dead.  I remind myself that without one I can’t appreciate the other.

Until tomorrow, create from what you have…contrasts in life.
