menu/ REASONS TO FEEL THANKFUL

I am thankful for these words, because I can read them ...

and for negativity, because it gives me the opportunity to develop positivity ...

and for weakness, because it allows me to demonstrate my strength ...

and for imperfections in others, because I learn about that which I do not want to be ...

and for my shadow, because it means I stand in light ...

and for darkness, because it gives me an opportunity to use my light ...

and for complaints, because it means we have freedom of speech ...

and for my bills, because they mean I am alive ...

and for every challenge, because they mean I have infinite opportunities to be creative in my problem-solving, a task that builds my self-esteem...

and for being overwhelmed by demands, because it means I am resourceful enough to handle it ...

and for exhaustion, because it means I am capable of persistence ...

and for illness, suffering, deprivation, and sadness, because they are all opportunities for my consciousness to expand ...

and for the gift of life, so precious and full of so many opportunities and possibilities I haven't yet considered ...

and finally...

for all those out there who love me, including those I will telephone or email when I've finished reading this.
