And thought...Damn, how'd I get so lucky?

I know I spend a lot of time stressing out and complaining but this morning watching the kids running around getting ready for school and seeing how healthy and happy and sweet they all are and then DF drinking his coffee and kissing me and telling me how much he loves me before heading to work...It was just an ordinary morning but it hit me. I am a lucky woman. And sometimes, I need to sit back and let that sink in and be thankful.

Yes, I know. Sappy. I don't care.

I wouldn't classify you as lucky. Your life is nothing to be jealous of.

Yeah I haven't experienced that fully yet. There's are unspoken issues. I guess they'll be talked about when i'm dead

I have those moments. It's easy to focus on the negative and what you need to "fix" as opposed to seeing the big picture. I'm happy you're happy 😆

That's sad.

OP, I am very lucky.

Ive had a lot of really bad things happen to me but I still feel lucky every single day. I'm healthy and happy. My kids are healthy and happy. I have resources. I have great siblings and emotional support. And I'm wise enough to appreciate the good in life.

That's lucky.

This is the first time in a while it's really hit me. I spend too much time worrying about the difficult things and not enough appreciative of how good things truly are. I need to work on that.
