I need to remind myself of all that I have in my life. It’s unfortunate that I don’t do it enough and right now, I need to focus on the good things.
I have a family who loves me despite all the stress and pain I’ve caused them. I know that no matter what happens, they will be there for me. I may not have agreed with their decisions before, but I see now that they were just looking out for me, only wanting me to have the best that I could have.
I have good friends who do their best to keep me strong. Although I have faltered and may have responded rashly or inappropriately, I know what the bigger picture is. I cannot ask for greater people in my life than the ones that I have now.
I have my health that keeps me going everyday. I’ve seen people in worse conditions and I’m happy to be blessed with my physical abilities.
I have my studies despite how difficult it was to start. I want to try harder and push myself farther this year and the next.
I have my physical appeal that catches an eye or two.
I have my ability to start up a conversation with a complete stranger. As long as they’re friendly too, then why can’t we have a nice chat?
I have my memories of all the good times that I’ve had over the years.
I have my senses to enjoy all that is around me, to help me appreciate the flowers, food, music, sunsets, and skin.
Lastly, I have my faith in God because I know that He has a plan for me and although I may be hurting, I understand that this is what He wants. He wants me to be strong, to live, to thrive, and to be all that I can be. He is there to help guide me in the right paths and I can’t ask for more than what He’s already given me.
I’m still a little emotional, but I feel better. What are you blessed to have in your lives?
