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…
