Truth be told, it’s actually Day 4; I have some catching up to do. Did I know about this event on Day 1?
ummm yeah. I wasn’t going to do it.
I don’t have time.
I’ve always spent a lot of time being grateful.
Seeing the cup half full.
Looking on the bright side.
Counting my lucky stars.
But since we’re being honest, this is one of the darkest periods in my life. It’s a time when I need to learn how to stop doing these nice things and look at the dark, dank underbelly in order to protect myself. Quite frankly, all the negativity is depressing me.
But my 30 Days of Thanks will begin with being thankful for that pain. I’m thankful because I continue to move through it rather than become catatonic because of it. I’m thankful because I know that once I get out the other side, I’ll be more grateful than I’ve ever been before.
Some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns;
I am thankful that thorns have roses.
