Being thankful

It’s so easy to go through the motions of saying the generic things we know we should be thankful for but not really appreciating all those things.

It’s been a month since I lost someone I loved and this month has been a true test. Death is never an easy thing. I have been full of anger, sadness, regret, hatred, and anxiety. Cycling through these emotions I became so blinded to all the beautiful things around me. I think the worst part of it is that I wanted to keep feeling this way. Didn’t want to get back to my happy place because it meant I wasn’t going to hurt anymore. It meant a lot of different things.

All that negativity clawed onto my heart and began to spread outward to those around me.

But then slowly I started to remember all the things I had to be grateful for. I began to remember the big dreams that I have for myself and I began the process of healing.

With a world full of a lot of hate, we need to fight to keep ourselves surrounded by love. We need to fight to spread that love and we need to do it together.

and so I leave you with 3 quotes…
