Today I am feeling grateful. Nothing monumental has happened. When I woke up this morning not much had changed from yesterday. The only difference is that I’ve decided to fully, deeply and madly fall in love with my life. I am totally in love with my life. I think about my family and friends and how grateful I am for their support, energy and unconditional love. Each person has brought such a unique sense of happiness to my world and kept me constantly feeling “full” when life has had its empty moments. Although my job has had its challenges, I have found all the ways I know how to make the best of it. The people I work with keep the stressful moments less tense and have taught me things I would have never learned if I wasn’t sitting behind this particular desk. It has all been a part of the process of helping me grow and get me to where I am going. My apartment still needs a little work, but overall it’s become a home to me. I find solace in the hardwood floors and the way the light cracks through my old blinds. I have embraced the polar opposite temperatures of water that keep me guessing when I shower each morning. Such vulnerability really keeps you on your toes when you’re naked and tired at 6:45am. Lastly, I am especially grateful for the relationship I have grown into with myself. In giving myself the grace to make mistakes, be proud, get hurt, be happy and everything in between, I have finally become happy with who I am. This is the love I’ve always hoped to have in my life. A love so full from within that I can get myself through anything and I’d be ready to learn how to love others while most importantly loving myself. Cheers to that.
