I Am Not Blessed.

You know those days when you realize something big?

Yep, today is one of those days for me.

Here is what I know: I’m not blessed.

Nope, not me.

That’s pretty big.

But it’s true.

Don’t worry about me, though. I will continue to make my way and be happy, even content. I will wake up with plans to achieve my goals. I will find moments to smile about. I’ll enjoy my kids, our pets, our home, my life.

I will feed my family, pay my bills, help my neighbors.

I will read books, color my hair, paint my toes and go on adventures.

All of this while not being blessed.

Oh, and you’re not blessed either.

No one is favored by their god. Just as I am one of the seven-plus billion bits of some kind of godliness (or not) here on Earth, so are you.

All equal.

I won’t use blessed to describe my life. I am no more favored than anyone else.
