It was one of those days when I had no idea what I wanted to do. again.
It wasn't necessarily a bad thing. I had just taken moms to the airport. It was still cold. and I wanted to crawl back in bed. But instead I decided to check my email and force myself to stay awake this early morning.
So I sat down. opened my laptop. sipped my coffee. and went for it.
It not everyday that I feel like my journey is easy. or that the thoughts of what happened to me isn't there.
But today was a bit different. Today was a reminder to keep moving forward.
It was kind words I didn't expect to receive. It was an email.
When you share your story and are in the middle of your journey you never expect for people to respond. You only hope that by doing what you are doing inspire others to move forward with you, or helps in some way.
And so today I want to say thank you.
Thank you to the strangers that tell me I have inspired them. Thank you to the friends who support me and who have cried with me at my best and at my worst. Thank you to my family who have held me when I couldn't hold myself anymore.
I constantly find that I am overwhelmed with gratitude and I am thankful for all of you.
I do want to tell you something however, it is something that I think is to be mindful of. To be grateful for yourself.
Be grateful that by your existence you are something special in this world. That you have the power to create the world around you. To see the beauty, and to make a difference if you so choose.
It is so important to be aware of who you are and the impact that you have on the people around you. So I challenge you again to think.
Are you grateful for you?
Even if you are not, I am proud of you. Because this in itself is a realization. A realization that you can be grateful for who you are and that this is a step for you to be the person that you want to be.
and with that I hope that I have challenged you along your journey
