My heart is heavy today.
It's so true that tragedy can make even a big Country like mine seem small. As most of the Nation is still processing the horrible event that took place in a Colorado movie theater late last night, today I'm spending some time in memory of those who've suffered and lost -- reflecting upon my own life with gratitude.
It's too easy these days, to get caught up in small things that frustrate me, like; "Arg! My facebook app is so slow!", or "Why is this driver going 10 miles under the speed limit?!".
Today I saw friendly faces, I ate good food, I was loved by my family and my puppies - and I'm so grateful for all of it...even that slow driver who allowed me to take my time and enjoy watching the clouds break over the bay.
I hope we can all have more moments of gratitude in a time where we seem to be so easily fixated on the negative. Don't forget to be kind and compassionate not just to others, but to yourself as well.
