Being Thankful: Life's Gifts

You know, I really like this new #beingthankful series of mine. I think I am going to continue writing about what I am thankful for even during next year. I realized that it's something I want to do regularly not only at the end of a year. It's kind of soothing to sit down and think about what I am thankful for and why I am thankful for it. An excercise in mindfulness of sorts.

Today though I am #beingthankful for life's gifts. Unexpected gifts, obviously. Life has a wonderful way of showing its kindness. It can happen by means of people that you meet. Or a conversation you had. An article you read. Ideas that come to your mind. Sometimes it's also about mundane things like finding a parking place when the parking garage is full when you are already late to your appointment. Or when there is just one loaf of bread left when grocery shopping (as if it'd be waiting for you). Or finding your dream boots on sale.
Usually people are referring to these kind of situations by saying: what a coincidence...
No coincidence. No such thing as coincidences. A gift of life it's what I call them!
