Sun, Happiness, Coffee, Writing & Gratitude

10th post for #bloganuary (a WordPress event)


The Prompt: What are five things you’re grateful for today?


1) The morning sun. While it’s not a sunny morning per se, the sun is doing it’s job and lighting up the morning sky. Reminding me to appreciate the improbable wonder of life.

“Life” – originally published in Thirteen Words (Vol. I)

2. Happiness. I chose to feel happy this morning. I’ve been making this choice more and more in life. I think this is what they call wisdom.

“Happiness” – originally published in Monty’s Very Short Shorts.

3. Coffee (and a sense of humor). Hehe. I make myself chuckle.

“Coffee” – originally published in Thirteen Words (Vol. III)

4. Writing. Writing saved my life once…and every day since.

“Wild Writing” – originally published in Thirteen Words (Vol. III)

5. Gratitude.

“Rebirth” – originally published in Monty’s Very Short Shorts

Be well,

Monty

      ☀️😊☕️✍️🙏! Thanks! Still to early here to see any sunlight but I’m happy already. I’m loving the positive engagement coming from blogging on WP. Thanks again for inspiring me to move over.

    Yes Monty, I am loving this little series of yours. My favourite – out of the 5, although all great, was that you CHOSE happiness. How many of us actually choose how we feel thus are in control of how our day will pan out! Love this. Wish we’d jumped on this earlier. X

      Thanks!! I’ve an earlier post “Dear Monty” that also talks about choice (behavior and emotion). Learning that I have the choice to feel one way or another has been a major breakthrough for me, personally. Thanks for reading and sharing your thoughts.
