Being grateful all the time
I write about this all the time, because this is such a huge thing in my life. I am so grateful for every day, for every second of my life, I live in the moment, I love big, I live large.
See I know it could be another way, hell it was for so many years and I remember those days, knowing I never want to go back there ever again.
This weekend I was blessed with a trip to Hutchington Island for a 3 day Motivational speaker conference with a dear friend. (Read more about that in tomorrow’s blog)
I got to meet some amazing people and learned how to do what I want to pursue as a full time career, better.
As I was driving home, I thought about the whole weekend, I thought about my dear friend who I went with, my new friends I had met and the endless possibilities that lie ahead of me on this next journey of my life and I started to cry.
See I am so grateful about where I am, where I am going and all the things in my life that it literally brings me to tears. It overwhelms me to think about how blessed I feel, to know in spite of my incredibly hard life I had, that I have overcame it all. I overcame the darkest, deepest hole, that I clawed my way out of. I overcame disappointment, loss and failure to be in a space of gratitude.
I overcame rape, drug and alcohol addiction, a verbally abuisve marriage, I overcame fear, self doubt and self hatred to be in this place of love.
I am constantly learning, constanly changing to become a better person, to help others see if I can do it, you can do it too.
I am here to speak my truth, to let whoever will listen, what my God has done for me. To give praise to him, to speak his name and know that without him all of this would have never been possible.
There is not a day that goes by that I don’t give him thanks as soon as I open my eyes, that I don’t give thanks even during the storms, even while life is coming at me hard and fast and I feel like I can’t breathe, I am still giving thanks, I am still filled with gratitude.
Yes, I cry, I cry all the time, tears of joy, tears of gratefulness, tears of forgiveness and love. I can remember crying tears of sorrow, of hatred, of unforgiveness, self hate, guilt and of being unfulfilled.
So much has changed in my life, because I’ve changed it, I stepped out, I decided enough was enough and I moved on.
I left all of these feelings in the past. Was it easy? Oh hell no, nothing worth anything is easy but ask me was it worth it and I will start crying as I tell you how worth all the pain was.
So today my friends, remember you can do anything you set your mind to, change your mindset to one of gratitude, change your life and you too will be feeling grateful all the time.
