Many people start working on their New Year Resolution days before the year starts while others tend to take their time in deciding what they want their goals to be for the new year. Over the past few years, we have all been forced into spending our time locked inside our homes because of the pandemic. This has led to some of us resenting certain aspects of our everyday lives and developing a negative sentiment as a whole.
While it is okay to take note of our shortcomings, it is also important to acknowledge all the good things and the positivity around us, things that are often undermined and taken for granted.
1. Waking up Before the Alarm Rings
Have you had those moments when you know that you have to get up at 6 a.m. but your mind decides to wake you up in the middle of the night for seemingly no reason at all? You pray and hope that it isn’t 6 a.m. and to your surprise, it turns out to be 3 am! So, you pull the covers over your head and thank the universe for those extra three hours to sleep.
2. Finding Free Time
You get back from work, thinking about all the tasks you have to finish but to your surprise, you happen to finish them earlier than expected. At first, you are not sure what to do with your free time but slowly and steadily, you settle in to enjoy some peace and quiet.
Let’s face it, there’s nothing quite as gorgeous as the sun rising over the horizon and setting at dusk. With their mesmerizing colors, sunsets serve as a reminder that even bad days come to an end, while sunrises encourage us to take life by the horns and that every new day is an opportunity to start over. Isn’t that something worth appreciating?
4. Having a Bed
If you come back after a long day and have a warm, cozy bed to collapse into, that is a luxury not everyone can afford. Your bed provides you with the rest you need to get back up and face everything tomorrow has to offer. One can’t help but appreciate that, right?
