Grateful for an Active Mind

As I am sitting in front of my laptop preparing what to write this morning, my mind is swirling with thoughts. I am thinking of the day ahead (I am to present to my co-teachers today), I am thinking of what I wish to do in my class during the forthcoming weeks, I am looking ahead to our plans for the weekend, I am thinking of the new president of the US.
While all these thoughts fill my mind, I realise what it is I am grateful for – an active mind. I am thankful that I have these thoughts whirling in my head; that my thoughts are clear and unfettered by illness or drugs. With these thoughts I am able to think of what I wish to do and who I wish to be. It is with an active mind that I am able to live out my life on my own terms.
What have you been grateful for this week?
