It’s St Patty’s Day! As a kid I LOVED this holiday! Green pancakes for breakfast, little leprechaun feet in the house, and pinching anyone not in green! I was the kid decked out in green at school! My favorite! As I get older this holiday kinds of turns into Thanksgiving for me. I look around and realize how lucky I am.
I feel lucky to live in a day an age where I can chase my dreams as a woman. I am not held back by society to hold a career. I feel lucky to be a woman in general. I feel lucky when the time comes to carry a baby and create a new little life.
I feel lucky to be married. I married young and while its not for everyone, it was for me. I feel lucky to spend my ups and downs with my best friend. I feel lucky we have each other to laugh, cry, and support. I feel lucky to be loved and in love.
I feel lucky to live in sunny California. I don’t feel lucky to sit in traffic, but I do feel lucky to lay in the sun, dance all week long, and meet new people.
I feel lucky to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I feel lucky to find members wherever we are. I feel lucky to know god and his love.
I feel lucky to have a body. A body I push to the limits with exercise and one that allows me to move freely.
I feel lucky to be a dancer. I wouldn’t wish this lack of job security on anyone, but I do feel lucky to use my body as a tool of communication and performance. I feel lucky to be able to touch people with movement and tell my stories.
I feel lucky to be alive.
Are you feeling lucky today?
