I'm grateful for all the reflections in my life! I'm grateful to be in a relationship that reflects back to me the traits I appreciate most and also the traits that I fear about myself. Everyone we come across is a mirror of some aspect of ourselves. This is the case when we like someone and even when someone is so irritating to us. Inside a loving relationship is a whole different level of reflection. The ones we love most, the ones we open to most, are also the ones that can best reflect back to us the fears or un-truths we have guarded most. I'm grateful to recognize these fears and to be able to communicate them when needed. I'm grateful for a patient, loving relationship with a man that never ceases to amaze me. And I'm grateful for all the love I give and receive each day. Who reflects back to you the things you are not wanting to see? How can you embrace that aspect about yourself? How can you open your heart to love yourself completely?
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
