On being thankful


| Comments (2) | Views (2)

It's amazing what one can accomplish in a year's time, and looking back, I have much to be thankful for.

The year 2002 will be remembered as the worst year of my life, for there was much pain, loss and depression. Following the loss of my job due to downsizing, I lost my townhouse, my truck, my cat, and nearly my life. Face down in the gutter I vowed to pull myself out. I focused attention on my love for video games to pass the time, and soon I found myself back home living with my parents who love me so much... exactly one year ago, and I have much to be thankful for.

The year 2003 will be remembered as the best year of my life, for it has been filled with much love, spiritual growth and joy. Soon after learning of the new games programs at RIT, I applied as an undergrad and started full-time in the Spring of this year. The way things are going I will graduate at the top of my class in the Summer of 2004, and I have much to be thankful for.

Life is a garden full of rare and beautiful orchids. By nurturing these flowers with mindfulness and love, balance is maintained within the ecosystem and life flourishes. Pain and suffering cause distraction from these responsibilities and inclement weather will leave life's flowers vulnerable to disease. By returning to the essence within and following one's bliss, even that which was thought to be lost can be resurrected and found.

Don't you know that the power of God is within you? And I have much to be thankful for.

Thanks for this post. I need to return to the things that are important in life, thanks for reminding me.

I will vow to pull myself out of my sadness and to be a happy and complete being.
