ⒼⓇⒶⓉⒾⓉⓊⒹⒺ : what are you grateful for?
// while I was sitting [read: grounding] on the fresh grass @prospect_park watching the children giggle + play, old friends gather for picnics, dogs run wild in the warm “summer” like breeze, tunes aerate to the sky ~ i couldn’t help but feel so unbelievably grateful and humbled by all that l i f e is. there are so many functions of it we overlook the infinitesimal growth of each leaf on each magnificent tree, the gas exchange occurring in our lungs + blood providing oxygen to every organ, the sun that guides light to our retinas to decode + create images for our brains to decipher... each sensory experience exemplified.
have you ever marveled at how remarkable we are?
how lucky we are?
if only we took the time to idolize + get all googly-eyed over our surroundings + our SELVES rather than the little battery powered gps packs we “can’t live without”, maybe our world would be a little less sad, a little less stressed, a little less superficial, little more connected, a little more vibrant, + a little h a p p i e r. i feel ever-fortunate that I ALLOW myself to grow + experience every tiny idiosyncrasy of our #earth or #pachamama . i allow myself to marvel at all the effort she exudes for us just to experience this life. we forget, she doesn’t need us. we need her. so let’s do everything we can to take care of her.
allow yourself to learn, love, grow.
for you, for me, for our children, for our children’s children + every sentient being.
