I’m living with this view for more than 20 years. This has been the constant morning picture from my room ever since my family moved away from my grandparent’s compound. Back then, my grandma won a significant amount of money in the local lottery. No, grandma didn’t get the jackpot million prize. How I wish! The money was just enough to give my grandparents a source of steady livelihood and enough inheritance for their children. My father used his inheritance to purchase our home for more than 20 years.
I never noticed this view as I was growing up. In my elementary years, I have to wake up before the sun is up for school. Back in college, I either wake up early or get up late because of my classes that lasts until 9 pm. I never noticed this blessing all those years of my life.
When did I start to notice and appreciate the view? A few months ago while I was savoring my rare vacation from work. I was worried, irritated and can’t find reasons to get up from bed. I pushed away my curtains and I realized, wow this could be a perfect upload for Instagram! LOL
Seriously, that morning made me realize that I tend to ignore a lot of things that I should have been thankful for. I allowed all the negativities in life to control me.
So starting today, I’ll try my best to appreciate this little heaven that never left me all those days of my life.
