Well, this is awkward. I completely abandoned you. Am I sorry? Not entirely. Here’s why… When you are not inspired to create there is no point in telling false truths. To be honest, much of the previous material had been rather, forced. From now on I promise to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth so help me God (Insert Bible here and imagine me swearing on it). I have to find the heart and purpose of this little baby blog. My life? My travels? I mean really. WTF is this blog even about? Should I delete it? I’m workin’ on those answers. In the mean time, in case you were wondering, I’ve been hugging trees and soaking up their life giving energy and shit. So, there’s that.
In honor of Thanksgiving I will acknowledge and share the sources of gratitude in my heart this year…
I am grateful to the universe/life source/energy/love ie. GOD for being good to me. Some times I can’t believe it’s real. I think ‘what did I do to deserve all this?’. I promise to push myself to pay it forward so that others can appreciate you too. Thank you for gently placing happiness into my path so that I notice it as it is happening and can appreciate it. You allow me to have faith, you allow me to surrender and trust in you.
I am grateful to my support system, you know who you are. Without you I would have no inspiration. You have carried my heart when I did not have the strength to do it alone. A million thank you’s could never begin to cover it. I am forever indebted to you.
I am grateful for pain, for exposing me to the greatest challenge I’ve ever known. You took everything away so that all I had left was the most beautiful part of myself - the truth. Pain is the gift that makes it possible for me to prove I am brave. Without you I would be blissfully unaware of how much better I could be; how much better life could be. Pain never makes me bitter, just better ;)
The past year has been quite the ride. Well, my life thus far has been quite a theme park, actually! The wildest imagination couldn’t conjure up all I have lived. When I look back I feel a sly smile sweep accross my face. Its a smile that comes from the heart. It says ‘It’s been such a fantastic ride. I’m so lucky.’ I really, really am.
We all are.
To conclude…Years ago I heard someone say two things that spoke exactly what I feel deep down in my heart, ‘Thank you, life! Thank you, love!’
I choose to pursue a life of gratitude, today and always.
Happy Thanksgiving, lovelies! xo.
