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.
