In A Word – 108

This month’s theme for the Nablopomo challenge of blogging every day for the entire month of March is, “In a Word”.

Most of the time I ramble on about whatever strikes my fancy, but today I wanted to post a word that has become very important in my life.

I’ve always been thankful, albeit maybe not as consciously as I could have been. Maybe you just didn’t recognize the moment for what it was.  Sometimes it takes the loss of something to let you know how much you really appreciated what you had. Since my children are grown and following their own paths, I’ve taken much time to figure out, “What’s next?”

Looking back at all that’s gone before and realizing the awesome and incredible future I have, the better question at times is “What’s now?”

Now is what matters, and to be present in the now of things, you have to open your eyes wide, look around and appreciate it all.

That’s it. That’s my word,  and the best thing I’ve learned lately. Conscious gratitude.
