Continuing on with the gratitude theme this month ….
Consider today, as you go through your day, that every person you meet, read about, hear about, see around you, could be you.
You could have born that person, in that place, in those circumstances. You could have lived that life.
That could have been your job or spouse, your home or school, your country or neighborhood.
Those could have been your parents or children or grandchildren. Those could have been your religious beliefs, your values, your culture.
That could be your debt, your sickness, your struggle, today?
That could be your business, your career, your opportunity, your win.
That could be your loss, your success, your failure, your luck.
It could have been your childhood, your education, your battle, your war.
It could be you driven from your home, or buying your first home.
It could be your addiction, your jail sentence, your lottery win, your gain.
It could be your history, or your future.
It could be your life, or your death.
You could have been …. anyone. You could become …. anyone.
In thinking about that, do you feel grateful?
Do you remember all the times you caught a lucky break or another person played a role in the good things that happened to you?
Do you remember being that lucky break or person who reached out a hand to help? to someone else?
To someone that might have been … you.
