Gratitude Life

I am Grateful #SoulfulSunday

November and December are my favorite months. The whole atmosphere around me changes in these months, which I see as honoring the way I feel. This November we celebrated 17 years of our love anniversary. In December, we have more celebrations waiting – our wedding anniversary and our first born’s birthday.

I hope I am making sense, but when I see people taking others for granted and going above and beyond to hold a grudge and mock their better halves, I find it uncomfortable. I don’t love my husband because he is this perfect person. God knows I am far from perfect. I don’t feel hurt if my husband forgets our anniversary. And thankfully, he, too, didn’t hold a grudge against me on the rare occasions when I forgot our anniversary. 

I am grateful #SoulfulSunday

This is life. We make mistakes. 

No matter where life leads us, the story of our life is ours. We can either point fingers and bicker or choose to decorate the journey with those nostalgic memories that brought us together. 

No amount of gifts can replace how we feel. A person can be happy without big celebrations too. 

The month of November puts me in a positive mind frame by default. My heart is filled with gratitude for the little happiness that I find in my daily life. 

Today I am grateful for being me and my life.

  1. Congratulations on the 17th love anniversary, Vinitha! May the adventures continue and may there be more milestones to cherish together, as you celebrate your wedding anniversary in December. Ours falls in Dec too. :))

    Gratitude is a beautiful feeling, which I discovered rather late in my life and I feel it has totally changed my perspective about most things that I have been taking for granted all along.

    I like how you’re finding happiness in the small things. Ultimately, it’s these little moments that matters the most, right?

  2. Wish you both a very happy love anniversary, Vini! I am sorry I am visiting you late, but I am glad I read this.
    Happy wedding anniversary month to both of you, too. Ours is in Dec, too, as is Esha’s! What a coincidence! 🙂

    Yes, I realized it’s important to not hold grudges against each other, but focus on the good moments you enjoyed with each other. It is such a short, uncertain life we live, why pollute it with hard feelings?

What do you think? Please share! :)
