For those struggling right now, focus on gratitude. Focus on the blessings in your life even if it is as simple as clean water to drink or a smile from a stranger at the store. Know that there are people who love you; people from your past and present as well as people you may not have met yet. You are loved because you are a being of love. You are inherently worthy, no matter what.
Today I focus my gratitude on you. I'm so very grateful for the friends who were with me through my difficult times and through my search to shift my life into something more positive. I'm grateful to be here for you during this time. I'm grateful to see all the beauty you hold and love you for who you are, even if you cannot see it right now. I'm grateful for our time shared. And I'm so grateful for our friendship, no matter the length.
It is National Teacher Appreciation Day and while I want to say a big thank you to all the wonderful teachers out there who are molding the future, I also want to say thank you to all the unintentional teachers out there that have played a role in my life and helped shape who I have become. I'm so grateful to you and all you have done.
