Today I woke up to an imperfect day - no sunshine that I got so used to seeing every morning, a bit of a heavy head, anxiety about the upcoming workload. But those exact imperfections reminded me how much I do have - I am alive with fully functioning body, have income and live in a beautiful place where I can enjoy morning walks before work. I once read a statement from someone recovering from a bad accident that stuck with me - if you are able to wash yourself and make a cuppa unaided that's such a lucky place to be. I try to savour that every morning in my shower and having my first coffee of the day.
Our days weave together the simple pleasures of daily life, which we should never take for granted. - A.S. Byatt
