Simple Pleasures

After a week of rehab, I managed a 40min run, without so much of a twinge in my leg, this morning. It was the simplest of pleasures, running without fear and worry. It was my first run since the brutal 21km at 70.3 almost two weeks ago and it got me thinking about the simple pleasures around me that I may not be taking note of (read: taking for granted). Here is the list of simple pleasures I am grateful for this Friday. I only write it down because I feel it could be a useful exercise for anyone to do, so make your own list today.

There is a lot of talk around the 1% and if you are reading this, you are a part of the 1%. That makes you 100% more likely to have a few things on this list that you take for granted, which puts you in the 1%.

– I am grateful for my car. It’s a reliable source of transport.
– I am grateful for my career. I work in a great office with great people with great prospects.
– I am grateful for my health. I have been on anti-biotics once in the last 5 years.
– I am grateful for my equipment. I lack nothing when it comes to having access to the best stuff.
– I am grateful for the choices my parents afforded me growing up. They are rockstars.
– I am grateful for my friends. They are loyal, trustworthy and mindful.
– I am grateful for this space. Having a platform to produce and be creative puts me in the 0.001%. Thank you for reading.

As is tradition here, I keep it to 7 things to that I can remember all of them. What are your 7 things?

Have an amazing weekend out there.
