Felix said, “I have to quit but I keep thinking I'm gonna miss a lot of experiences."
"Yesterday I pulled a shirt from the drawer, thinking all the others represented upcoming days full of potential," I said. "I smelled the shirt, grateful I’d gotten past the days when I'd wear the least filthy thing from a pile on the floor. I pulled it over shoulders just sore enough from a good workout. I thought about a woman I’d seen on TV, born with no arms who'd learned to dress herself with her feet. Reminded me that sometimes doing the impossible takes persistence. I really savored the softness of the cotton. Pulling the shirt down over my waist, I laughed a little, thinking I was remarkably well-fed."
"You got all that from a shirt?" Felix asked, laughing.
"Slow down, throw in a little gratitude, and most experiences can become events."
Today I will turn an experience into an event.
