I Don’t Want To Be Exciting
A few years ago I’ve made, what I feel was, an important decision.
I decided I don’t want to be “exciting” by social standards. That’s just not for me.
I like simple things.
I like warm, soothing tea. I like cuddling up close to my wonderful wife, feeling her warmth whilst we’re both reading. I like going on walks, listening to birds sing and watching squirrels jump around between trees.
Just the other day I was coming down the hill and a soft breeze from behind started pushing the leaves around me forward. I thought it was just such a beautiful moment. Almost immediately I was engulfed by an overwhelming feeling of of gratitude.
I literally almost cried.
I was so grateful for this moment in time I’m blessed to be part of. I even became grateful that my parents brought me into this life and took care of me for so many years, as best they knew how and had the resources to.
I know it sounds corny. But I like corny. I like putting on Christmas music and decorating the tree together with Diana. I just love it when she prepares nachos with vegan cheese and we watch a corny Christmas love movie.
And I know it might sound strange to some, but I also really love working.
I love practicing my craft. I love the challenge of figuring out solutions for the many challenges we all face as work. And I just love being there for my team and my clients when they need me.
My best friendships are with the people I work with.
Again, my life is nothing “exciting” by most people’s standards.
But everything in my life is the way it is by choice. And I love it just the way it is.
I hope you love your life just as much. But if you don’t, know that it’s never to late to make changes for the better.
