My friends probably get tired of my constant references to Six Feet Under. However, as silly as it sounds, watching the series really changes one's perspective on life...or at least mine. The show, which revolves around a family who own a funeral home, reveals the fragility of life and the importance of living each day to the fullest...enjoying every moment big and small. Often, this is something I struggle with as I am constantly looking forward to things ahead.
However, this week, for the first time in months, I am really enjoying life...in the present. Though I have been covered in work, it doesn't seem like work, and I am happy. I can really say that...I am happy. It feels good and I am thankful.
My apartment is a mess, I haven't bought a single Christmas present and the waist of my jeans is a bit tight...but I am surrounded by people who care about me and getting to do what I love and for this moment that is what matters to me.
