As the clock strikes 12 I just wanted to sit down and take the time to breathe in the beauty that is 28 years of life.
Every moment is a milestone in my life, because I will never forget how it felt to feel like giving up, and then waking up to realize I still have my whole life ahead of me.
I AM GRATEFUL.
I pray that gratitude be the language that I speak from this point forward. That no matter where the road may take me, to the mountain or the valley, may I remember that I already have much more than I deserve. May I never take this second (third,&fourth) chance at life for granted. May I never get so lost in the darkness that I forget there is a light to guide me. May I never feel hopeless in my trials, because I am NEVER alone. May I continue to love this body that I have been given, in its perfect imperfections, for it has carried me through many adventures. May I continue to open my heart to the love that is out there, because there is so much love inside me ready to be freely given. May I never place my value or worth on the opinion of another person, because I already know… I am fearfully and wonderfully made. May I continue to allow my words and my story touch others, to be a beacon of hope, like so many others have been for me. May I continue to follow my passions and my dreams, because they have been placed in my heart for a reason, and they are meant to come to fruition. May I never forget that I was created with a reason and a purpose.
May I continue to live this beautiful life to the fullest, as an expression of my full and grateful heart.
Thank You Lord.
I want to be grateful,grateful
Don’t let me miss a single gift that you have given me
I want to be grateful, grateful
Wherever I am, I am in Your hands, where I am supposed to be
Because You are and You always will be…
