In the 19th century the problem was that God is dead. In the 20th century the problem is that man is dead.

Erich Fromm

What if the only blessings you get today are the blessings you were grateful for yesterday?

Covid-19 blessings?

pinterest image
Never stop learning because life never stops teaching. Last night at bedtime, stumbled upon an email from Pinterest.

Covid-19 blessings? Yes.

Self-reflection, large scale.

Common purpose, large scale.

Rethinking supply chains, large scale.

Creativity unleashed, large scale.

Questioning current and dormant priorities, large scale.

Best time to be doing this self-reflection was 10 years ago, second best time was five years ago, and the third best time is now.

Go for the bronze medal.

Better late than never.

Gratitude

Another photo from the homeowners dock. Quite a lovely place for a phone call.

When we drove to Epcot for dinner two days ago, a car pulled out in front of us while we traveled at 55-mph (88-kph).

Was grateful for so many things:

  • Eyesight
  • Being able to drive
  • Being with family
  • Able to go to Epcot for dinner on a moment’s notice
  • Having three seconds in the day to “lose” from the slowdown
  • Having well-maintained roads, everywhere
  • No one got hurt
  • Nothing was damaged
  • Was driving the speed-limit
  • Having an adult mindset to focus on gratitude, not “poor driving judgement”
  • Seeing the long line of vehicles behind us and realizing the driver made a practical move

Asterisk moment

Grateful to be able to bend down to ground level.

Asterisk moment.

Mid Life Celebration’s post today made it sound like everyone can make an endless list of things to be grateful for.

You agree with this right?

It dawned on me that there might be a chance some of us could feel this isn’t true.

  • You have a roof over your head
  • You have heat and cool air at your command

Leaning into discomfort

The antithesis of Sanibel Island is pictured here on the Mt Reynolds (9,156’) Summer climb.

Leaning into discomfort, being with Family, being on Sanibel Island, and all three of these at Christmas is a unique and special gift.

Rock on, my friend.
