Monday morning thought:
While my day did not begin the way I wanted it to, I’m grateful for another 24 hours on this beautiful planet.
I woke up this morning feeling tired after a night of very poor sleep. It is really cold outside here in VA. It was really cold standing at the kid’s bus stop and waiting for the bus. I did not feel like I would be very productive today. Then I looked up the weather in Alaska. I feel warm now.
First thing this morning I read a news story about Covid and the new Omicron variant. I felt compelled to ask Alexa how many people die every day. “Approximately 156,021 people die everyday across the planet.”
Are we doomed to extinction? Maybe not so soon. Approximately 385,261 babies are born everyday. Wow! Smile. I love babies.
I then received my financial statement from my investment firm. Lost some money. Thanks COVID. Hmmm. Hard to remain positive sometimes. But then I looked at my overall balance and remembered how I live compared to so many others. I’m blessed.
I am grateful to be here today. I will embrace the day and make the best of it.
Tomorrow. That is the future. Who knows what will happen?
