I have always tried to be a positive person, count my blessings and be grateful for what I have in life, the people I have in my life and what I have achieved in life.
Sometimes, life however has a way of getting me down and when I fall, it just keeps kicking me. Then it becomes very difficult to find the positive and the happy things in life.
This morning I am very happy about having electricity!
Typical people, we never appreciate the things that we have until it is gone. For the last week, we have really been struggling with the electricity. On Friday morning, we woke to no electricity. It had been off half the night and only came back on at about 8h00. On Monday morning, the same thing. Needless to say, I was not a very happy person as it was the first day back at work and I had (still have) flu, so leaving the house with wet hair is not a very bright idea. At least it was on Monday evening., just to go off at 11h15pm and only come back on last night at 20h45. I cannot tell you how grateful I was.
I realised again this morning just how blessed I am, I have a house that has electricity. I can have a hot shower and can watch TV, charge my phone and tablet. There are so many people who live in shacks with no running water and certainly no electricity.
That is why I joined the challenge, to once again start counting my blessings and appreciate what and who I have in life.
