Gratitude

“Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.” William Arthur Ward #FollowGreatFootsteps 

WHY HAVE I CHOSEN THIS QUOTE?

It’s straight forward. I went to   bed last night feeling not enough.

Not talented enough.

Successful enough.

Smart enough.

Think of a bucket full of negative thoughts- it had my name on it. I went to bed to shut out my ‘not enough s’ – I didn’t want to hear it.

I do have enough and I am enough.

  • My Ma and my partner and me have worked hard on what is going to be a beautiful wedding day

  • I have the strength in my body to do the things I want. My body never lets me down

  • My mind is able to think, express and help me do things like write and blog

  • I wake up each day and I have at least one new person reaching out to me through my blog and making new connections – I find it mind blowing. I reach back

  • In my real life I have people to share good times and bad times with and people who reach out to little old me

  • I get to volunteer for causes close to my heart and go on training sessions

  • I also am getting the chance to do training sessions on become an on-line moderator with #SickNotWeek soon

  • I get so much feedback from each person who notices me in this vast blog-sphere

  • I’m able to relate and empathise and feel and express my feelings with no shame

  • My partner makes me a cup of coffee every morning

  • My beautiful daughter is the most compassionate, funny, smart little four year old I know and she LOVES me.

  • People accept me for who I am and I do the same whole heartedly

  • People on-line and off put their trust in me and I will never betray them

  • I get to learn everyday in the real world and my blogging world

These are just a few reasons why I am blessed.  So thank you..

I take notice of every action expressed. I don’t forget. I feel part of a community on here. I love getting to know such an array of different personalities and the blogs you put out here. I love where I am in my my life and how it is moving forward in a way that I am at peace with.

So that’s it. I’m just a grateful weed who turned her face to the sun and blossomed because of the people in my on line life and my real life.

thank-you-note
