Gratitude Day ☼ 28 July 2022

A JohnnyO Celebration!

Each week John writes at SAME Cafe to a prompt for Coach Matt Salis which is “as fresh as each day’s breath.” Each month on the 28th we can look forward to a new piece to celebrate Gratitude Day for another month of wellness.

Thank you, John!

What do I like?





I like the fact that even my major problems are minor,

Inconsequential bumps in the road.

I like the fact that people call on me to help them and that

I am pleased to be able to do so.

I like the fact that I can still lose myself in a blissful unawareness

Of time, even if it is an occasional privilege indeed. Yes, folks…

I like the fact that when even such bliss sends my best-laid plans

awry, I can still adjust on the fly.

I like the fact that despite my boundless curiosity, and multiple

fascinations, there will never be a shortage of things to learn.

I like the fact that I don’t expect from others or desire in myself

Perfection, I’d never get anything done.

I like the fact that almost each and every day, I get to participate in

some other unanticipated delight.

I like the fact that even so early in my journey to wellness, I am

Beginning to again appreciate all of the subtle nuances in nature.

I like the fact that I am clueless as to just what other unexpected like

will enlighten my world today.

A likable state indeed, to be enjoyed by all.

What is a contagious like Like?

Let me repeat that



Kinetic and kindred.


Can I get a like?
