Reflecting on the past year, it has been one of the hardest in my life. I’ve gone through quite a bit for someone my age, but somehow the last year has been a complete mess. From a very close family member’s heart attack and health deteriorating, to my own health issues, to having to move after an ugly situation, to being in a car accident last week, this year has not been easy. While I try to remain a positive person and use this space as an uplifting place to share highlights and helpful information, it’s hard to keep out negativity. Today I’ve decided to devote this space to reflect a little extra positivity.
In my family member’s health, I’m thankful that they are still here.
In my own health issues, I’m thankful for the health that I do have.
In our quick move, I’m thankful that we are no longer in a bad situation.
In my car accident, I’m thankful for insurance and that it wasn’t worse.
I’m so grateful to everyone who has helped make a difference in my life this year.
Recently I’ve started using the five-minute journal and at first I was pretty skeptical, but taking those few minutes to write out my daily affirmations is really starting to make a difference. I’ll be taking the next week off to spend with my family, I hope that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
What are your plans for Thanksgiving this year?
