Today is remarkable, and so I shall remark. It’s currently 7:46am, sunny, and 43 degrees in Brooklyn, New York. I’ve only just gotten home from work less than an hour ago. Perfect timing to watch the sunrise with a cup of tea. Perched upon my window sill, I listen to music, dwell on my tea, and think of all the things I love. This morning my heart wanders, I find myself thinking of my best friend, how much I miss him, how much I miss California, then immediately to how much I love New York…and I realize….how lucky am I, to love so many things! I feel as though there are so many miserable people who dislike everything, and here I go just smiling at the world for no reason. I’m lucky to have the problem of having to choose between places I love, things I love to do, careers, hobbies, books, music, everything. And I’m lucky to have you, all of you, whoever you are, whether you care or not, today I am thankful for you. Because you either contribute to my happiness or bring the darkness that teaches me the contrast. Anyone who reads this, if anyone reads this, try and be conscious of what you are putting out into this world today, light or dark. And, also, try to be receptive of what the world is bringing you, so that you may notice and be thankful for all of the beauty you may have been ignorant of yesterday.
