There are certain things that make me stop to realize what is truly important and what is truly unimportant ... News of a neighbor's 52 year old daughter dying suddenly of an aneurysm, and heart broken mother who couldn't fly overseas to be with family ... My Dad's 2 blood clots on his lungs make me stop and take a deep breath inwards. How so many things fall into the unimportant category. I know we can't live in a perpetual state of being Awake to how amazing life is, but I'm taking this one moment of huge fear and trying to feel how amazing life is. How can I create lightness today? Also, I will add, that many times with Gratitude, I am just faking it. This is one of those times. Even plugging in a photo of my beloved Fort Funston isn't helping me not fake it. Ug.
