Over the past 7 months we have lived in 50+ cities and experienced more than in Dubai, London and Australia over the course of 5 years.
With each experience something new is gained and something new to be very thankful for.
Jenna: Throughout this trip I’ve learnt to truly value & appreciate the basics. Things I always believed were necessities i’m learning are a blessing – like warm water to wash your face, electricity at the flip of a switch and no real concern for how or why it works, a toilet you can flush without the fear of some bug flying up your nether regions, warmth when you are cold & AC when you are hot and of course gratitude for another day of happiness, loving and living – to name a few…
The following is a list we have generated of the things we are thankful for… and although it can not possibly contain every single blessing, it’s a good start…
I hope reading this will touch your soul, create good vibes all around and help you realize just how blessed you truly are, if only for a moment.
Parents who want more for us than they had.
The strength to climb up and down mountains plus so much more.
Strength, encouragement and support from an amazing family.
Resting your head at night without worrying about your security… Our little fella is learning to be the perfect guard dog.
…because when it’s gone, it’s gone and that removes all comforts.
A real ready-made bed – one that you don’t have to blow up – for example.
A lighter to start your fire or a stove to cook your food which turns on with a click.
At the right time and the right place – a hammer to peg your home down.
From the storms because it gets cold out there.
LESS STRESS – MORE TIME
To take in the worlds beauty…
To grow as a person.
Letting go of everything to make room for everything…
Because they mean more than you realize.
Because happiness is priceless.
Being blessed with the opportunity to grow your mind.
People who take the time to guide you.
To get you from point A to point B & safely.
4 SOLID WALLS
For warmth when it’s cold, AC when its bloody hot & safety from the elements of life.
To see the perfect sunsets.
Because hunger hurts.
A vehicle that will get you out of precarious situations.
To hear the earths music.
A toilet that flushes, you can throw toilet paper down & are not in constant fear of bugs flying up your bits!
Because thirst is a dangerous thing.
Being thankful for what we are so very blessed and fortunate to have…
AND FINALLY we are
Because everything we have shared, learnt and experienced is priceless and the beautiful list continues to grow with each passing day.
