What 25+ years has taught me...

There was that song by Baz Luhrmann, the one about wearing sunscreen, and this particular line was "enjoy the power and beauty of your youth". That line has always stuck with me - in a way that has made me feel like this is the most powerful time of my life, so I better make the most of it. So what did my youth teach me?

Gratitude Practice

Some people count sheep, I count blessings and repeat a gratitude list.

This is a truly simple exercise and acts as a reminder of all the things that are a blessing. These are the things, I find that I overlook and forget within my daily rush, when the pressures of the city weigh down on me, as they get shoved to the side and ignored. When we shine some light on these moments, feelings, interactions, no matter how small or large, they uplift the spirit.
