I haven't taking this picture myself.
I had actually already collected a lot of gratitude during my day today. It has been a really good day!
A lot of sensations for once.
Compared to just a few years back where every day was so hectic that I hardly heard a bird, smelled the sea, felt my own heart beat.
Today I do! Because I have chosen to so.
It's not good money wise I have to say. Compared to back then. Not yet at least.
I hope it will be one day. But I still do lot's of stuff that doesn't pay my bills.
However I am grateful. Because I love what I am doing.
And at the same time I actually do hear the birds right now. Actually for the fifth day in a row this morning. I do smell the sea. I notice people smiling to me in the train. Even spend time talking to the train driver.
For that reason I had also taken a photo of a small new flower, making it's amazing spring appearance.
And I appreciated an absolute wonderful day with my "colleagues" at Global Mindset.
And afterwards a really mind blowing meeting - at least for me - at a new football club in Copenhagen.
My daughter is now actually going to play really serious football, and suddenly she is much closer to her dreams than ever before - though still a long and tough way to go!!! So grateful however that her dedication has brought her this far.
So I had actually collected all that during my day, and then this picture arrived at my inbox just a few minutes ago. From a wonderful French family from Lyon that we exchanged house with, back in the Summer of 2012.
I have received New Years greetings from them ever since, and once in a while exchanging short messages and updates on Facebook.
I don't really know what it is that makes me feel this warmth. And it actually doesn't matter at all either. I enjoy networking, and I love feeling connected. And feeling connected to someone that you actually don't really know, someone living almost 2000 kilometers away, but someone that you've let into your home, like they let you into theirs. That just makes me feel really good, and well that was my choice of gratitude today.
