So yesterday, I was hanging out with some of my friends, and I realized that sometimes it becomes so easy to lose sight of how fortunate we all are. For example, my friends and I went to City Walk, had lunch, my one friend went to work, and then my other friend and I walked back to my apartment. It was a pretty simple day, but when I look back and think about it, we are so lucky to be able to enjoy something as simple as hanging out.
First, the fact that we were able to spend time at City Walk, which is only walking distance from where we live, is amazing to begin with. I feel like I always take that for granted, just because I'm so used to living in the area. Also, being able to go out and enjoy lunch with friends is a blessing in itself. Then, we walked my friend to his job; another blessing. So many people are looking for work right now, and we are all fortunate enough to be living out in California while working and following our dreams.
On the walk back to the apartment I was just looking around and really taking in the beauty of California. Everyday I get to wake up and enjoy this beautiful weather, and call this incredible place home. As we walked over the highway, I stopped and took the above photo, which I think is pretty cool actually.
Sometimes, something as simple as lunch with friends, or enjoying the place you live, or even a gate and some traffic, can really turn into something beautiful, or a great time. Much too often we take what we have for granted, and so this week, think of everything positive that happens in your life, and try to focus on that over the negative. This week, enjoy the little things in life.
