At this very moment, I am content and at peace with my life just the way it is, all of it, good, bad and ugly.
Today, I went on a bike ride through the side streets of town. The air is cool and crisp and I could smell the dampness of the earth after yesterdays rain. I could hear the birds singing and the leaves making soft sounds. I could feel my leg and butt muscles work as I climbed the small hill. I felt the sunshine on my back and arms. I felt the breeze make my hair swirl around and brush across my face. I felt grateful to have hair.
I felt grateful to be alive. I felt grateful to have this moment, which is really all I have.
When I find myself traveling into the distant or recent past or when I try to see what the future may hold, the moment is lost and the peace I feel inside sometimes becomes discomfort.
So, I celebrate this moment and celebrate life no matter how I may feel.
