That Magic Feeling When the Words Flow. A Blog by Debi Rotmil

Let’s Be Thankful



I saw a sign pasted against an electrical box on the sidewalk of my local village. It said, “Habits are Not Needs”. We seem unconscious to this reality.

Consumption. Greed. Want. Waste.  We’re coming to that time of year again, where “wants” become “needs” that all seem “important”. But they are usually not.  It’s time we wake up are realize we are filled with abundance. Even when things are rough – we have it all going on inside. But sometimes we fall into the pit of internet chatter, social media sink holes and the belief that we are happy because someone we like on Twitter re-tweeted us.

Let’s wake up a bit.

I’m thankful I’m a writer. I’m grateful for the people I’ve touched through my essays and blog posts. I’m also grateful for the friends I’ve made by writing those words.

Thanks to you all on WordPress! Thank you for following me through this strange and wondrous journey. I hope you enjoy reading my blogs as much as I enjoy reading yours.

Happy Thanksgiving to my USA followers. And to all around the world- may the start of the holiday season be joyful.
