Well, it is a day before Thanksgiving and as well as being thankful, I am grateful as well for so many things.
I have a wonderful family and I love and know they love me (most of the time that is). That is something to be thankful and grateful to start with. I feel I ponder on the past and present and know that I have been so lucky in so many areas. I think the hardest thing I had to overcome was the lack of my self-confidence and assurance that I am worth what I have earned and achieved.
When I look back on my life I find that I would have made different, but probably not major changes, due to my lack of self-confidence. Fortunately, I am grateful that over time, with age, I truly feel I have figured out how to overcome this.
Having come to this point of my life, I am truly grateful for the opportunity to have good health, interests that I have really enjoyed, a fabulous family, great opportunities which have resulted in achieving small and large happenings. I feel my life, to this point, has been interesting, fun, hysterical, sad, and to date, complete. Don’t get me wrong I am not done with trying new things, enjoying the old accomplishments, and just being grateful that I am me.
Gratitude has not come without those helping me along the way, but I am grateful for what I have.
