Today I am grateful to just go with it. I'm grateful to interact with my church community and I'm grateful for following my need to leave early. I'm grateful to be able to open up and just let the tears fall. I'm so grateful for friends that are truly family that will always open their door to me when I am in need. I'm grateful to not get stuck in the emotions of today but I'm also grateful to have honored them and not hidden them away. It has taken me YEARS to be able to say this, but it is ok to cry. And sometimes that is just the release that is needed. There is no pity or sadness needed in the aftermath, just the need to sit in that moment and just go with it. I'm grateful to live in a community that provides that space. I'm grateful for all the wonderful WOMEN ( we're not girls anymore) in my life! Thank you to all of you that were there for me the last two days whether in person or in spirit. I'm so blessed! Thank you to this community for letting me share my gratitudes openly and expose vulnerability when that is needed! Thank you!
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
