What could that even mean?
In this juggernaut world,
that is bent
On bringing you down?
Sometimes, it is as simple as
Reciprocating your mother’s smile.
It could mean,
Giving up what you want
For someone else’s need.
It is being comfortable in your own shoes.
And not seeking new shores.
It is opening your eyes
To the beauty that nature has to offer.
It means thanking the stars.
For the opportunities that have made you.
Having the strength to handle your regrets.
Before accepting others.
It is having friends in your life
Who show you the light
At the end of the tunnel.
Sometimes its thanking yourself
For choosing the right path.
Its appreciating the inner voice
That never fails
When everything else has.
There are no sometimes to be thankful for.
That’s when you practice gratitude.
