because i'm feeling extra grateful.

It was an ordinary day filled with ordinary things. I followed my usual schedule, saw the usual people, carried out all the usual tasks — everything went as it normally does. But as I walked along the sidewalk, hands tucked into my pockets, the streetlights flickering on as night fell, I realized that I felt elated, thrilled, so deeply satisfied and content. And I hadn't even noticed because it was normal.

When the ordinary somehow feels extraordinary, there's just nothing like it.

I love that feeling. I had the same moment a few months ago. We've bought a house in the bush and I was sitting there underneath the house looking out at the forest. And I just thought 'this is it. this. this right here is perfect contentment.'
