Feeling Blessed


Day 16 of the ChallengeSomething difficult about your "lot in life" and how you're working to overcome it.



I've been thinking a lot about what to write for this post, but I keep coming up blank. Sure, there are things about my life that I wish to improve on, and dreams I am working towards, but overall I have been dealt a pretty lucky hand in life. And for that I am very thankful.

I suppose I could have thought of something I've struggled with. Self esteem, death of a loved one, weight loss, heartache. But, I felt like if I had to stretch for something difficult to write about, I should instead take a moment to be thankful. Thankful my life has been so blessed. I have always had a loving family who supports me and encourages me to follow my dreams. I have amazing friends whom I love as if they were family. I've traveled the world. I have a great job and live in an amazing city.

So today, instead of talking about the small things in life that are sometimes difficult, I am going to be thankful for all that I do have. For those around me that I love and for everything I've experienced so far.



xoxo,


Theresa

  3. this is great. when i saw that prompt i was like oh man, i have no idea what i'd say (and was also super nosy to see what other people would say!). it's a good reminder to realize that whatever is going on or has happened to you, you really don't have it that bad!
