What are you thankful for?
I remember not long ago (literally last month) being miserable and angry all the time. I never took the time out to appreciate the things that I had in my life. I’m talking about good and bad. I believe that when we are in a funk or depression we tend to make it bigger than what it appears. Everything else seems to dissipate and your focus is just on depression and self loathing.
I don’t think in those moments I ever stopped to “smell the roses” so to speak. I never turned and looked at my babies and thought I’m so lucky to have such wonderful little beings who love me. Or the fact that I have a lot in life that I take for granted.
I’m in a position where I can really learn from my mistakes and grow. I appreciate all the bad things I’ve gone through as well because they have made me stronger and much more appreciative of who and what I have in my life.
So, as we go about our busy days and lives we should make sure we stop, take a few deep breaths, look around and appreciate who we are and the things we have. Things could be much worse. And always remember, everyday that we are living in true happiness is when we are truly becoming free. ☀️
