I was supposed to write this yesterday, but I ran out of time before I had to head out. I wanted to ask you what you are thankful for, and share what I am thankful for.
I feel there are the obvious things that most of us appreciate and are grateful for like family, health, and friends. But another thought hit me now when reading the book “Dark Matter” by Blake Crouch. In the book there are several worlds where we exist simultaneously. Not to reveal too much, but in the book one man can enter different worlds where he exists. He is the same, but different realities, situations, and the world is also different. That made me think that if I could choose to step into another reality, what would I choose? To be royal? A billionaire? To be famous for something else? To be married to Quentin Tarantino? Live in the future? I was thinking of different scenarios and came to the conclusion that I’m perfectly happy where I am now, with what I have in my life and with what I do. I wouldn’t change it. That feels pretty good to me. OK, for a day I might want to check myself out in the year 2050 to just now what’s there. So I guess I’m thankful that I feel that I am right where I want to be. How about you? Would you rather be someplace else? Do something else?
Yesterdays potluck for Thanksgiving was awesome. Met new people, we ate, drank, and shared stories about how we all ended up in Puerto Rico. I did manage to mix too many drinks so I was not too thankful for the headache this morning 🙁 Wish I could blame someone other than myself…
No Black Friday shopping for me today. I want things, but I don’t need them (or maybe I’m just too hungover to head out), so instead I’ll be watching some Game of Thrones and eating chips 🙂
