I have not posted for quite some time. After starting a new opportunity I found it hard to get to my passion project of writing. Now that I have a little more free time, a smidge really, I found it necessary to start writing again. Two weeks ago I started writing down what I was grateful for. When I am done I will have 365 things that I am grateful for in life. Gratitude can be the most difficult lesson to learn for most people but for me it has proven to be more difficult than I thought. I started little and felt it wasn’t good enough just to be grateful for now traffic or that I didn’t spill my coffee or that I was able to breath. I wanted to look deeper but I struggled most days. I had a few awesome lessons of gratitude that ay have come at a price but all the same they ranked gratitude. This week I wanted to focus on the people in my life that even though they may not know, I am grateful everyday for them.
Today I was texting with a wonderful friend who is no longer in my daily view at work and has become a brilliant mother. I miss our jokes and the motivation and support we gave each other everyday. Today I hope I inspired her to do something she would be amazing at. She has given me such strength and support in the last four months that no words could describe how amazing she is. The gratitude I feel for having her in my life has saved me from my own despair many days. I am sure that Angela will show up again in my pledge of gratitude because our friendship is still growing.
