2015 was a year of significant highs and lows. But as I prepare to bring the year to a close, I look back with gratitude. I choose to give prominence to the good times I have experienced, and let go of the things that have hurt me. I choose gratitude because I am stronger, healthier, happier, & wiser than I was just one year ago. I choose gratitude because I have continued to move forward in my recovery and toward my dreams. I choose gratitude because I continue to be blessed by amazing friendships who continue to be an all important part of my support system.
2015 was a year of:
I learned how to step out of my comfort zone and embrace the “come what may” of life. And for that I am grateful.
It is not always easy to be grateful. But I am learning that it is an attitude have to choose each and every day. Nothing that has happened to me in my life is out of coincidence, it has all been for a reason. When i am able to look at the bigger picture, looking beyond the pain of a moment….I choose to be grateful for this journey that I am walking. The things I dream of doing would not be possible if I hadn’t walked this journey.
This journey has fueled a passion in me, a passion to help others, a passion to change the world.
And for that…. I am grateful.
So I say goodbye to 2015, and a welcome 2016 with open arms. Grateful for the opportunities I have been given. Grateful for the people I have been surrounded with. Grateful for the love and support that I have been showered with. Grateful that I am able to give a voice to my story, and possibly help someone out there find their voice too.
I am ready for the journey before me.
