Today I had a long chat to a stranger.
I had a little cry with a friend who lost her mother.
I ate hummus with too much garlic.
I let my kids get all dirty.
I lit a candle and said a prayer for my dad’s recent bad health.
Today I told our housekeeper how much we love her.
I paid a long overdue bill.
I drank my favourite latte slowly-slowly while I walked.
Today, I spoke a painful truth to a business associate who played me dirty and released those feelings with a happy middle finger in the air.
Today, I wore a bright red lip and said a silent thank you for the health and safety of those I love, for the little bits of magic in ordinary days.
Ah life! It’s messy, but gosh what a ride.
Aluta continua, as they say. Gratitude is the only way.
