“Life is so subtle, sometimes you barely notice yourself walking through the doors you once prayed would open.”
I came across this quote recently, and it really resonated with me. 2017 has been a year full of opportunities for me.
After working two jobs that were emotionally and physically tolling, I finally came across an opportunity, that I genuinely love. Something that made me no longer find the need to send TGIF snaps to my friends every single Friday. Something that didn’t make my stomach sink on Sunday nights.
In 2016, I didn’t travel at all, and somehow this year I’ve had the chance to fly to internationally 4x, and even to Northern Ontario/Manitoba for work.
Last year I was driving my dad’s old CRV(the year before that I was barely driving at all), and this year I was able to purchase my first car.
& yet I spend countless hours on social media, looking at others’ seemingly perfect lives, and then feeling as though I don’t have enough. I need more clothes, I need to travel more, I need to go out more. I complain about small tasks that I need to do now, that I would have done 30x before just to get the same opportunity.
There are so many things for me to be grateful for. I don’t want for a bad day to come by, and to then realize how good I had it, once it’s too late.
I’m hoping this short note to myself, maybe leads you to reflect and see all that there is to be grateful for.
