So, this month-as I do every November- I've been trying to focus on things I'm thankful for. One exercise I've done is posting a status update on Facebook every day with something I'm grateful for.
This time in my life is a transitioning period. I'm still trying to figure a lot of things out, and adjust to my new life situation. Change is definitely a learning, stretching, growing experience if we let it be.
I am grateful for the scars. They have molded and shaped me into who I am today.
I have learned I have more strength then I previously thought I did. More often than not it comes from God. There is power in prayer and asking for strength.
One thing I've learned too is if we take time to focus on our blessings before we go to bed at night, it helps our wheels to stop spinning. You know what I mean. When all you can think about is this negative downward spiral and one negative thought leads to another, and another.... you get my point. By focusing on what we have, what talents or abilities we have, our friends, our family it turns the spiral upside down and we begin to ascend. ASCEND.
We can therefore look up. And if we are looking up-we can see and recognize things to be grateful for. I wish for you all to look up. You will find blessings. You will.
