TAKE BACK MY POWER Month Day 24: GRATITUDE. It’s Thanksgiving and I have a tremendous amount to be grateful for. I live a beautiful life that I have worked hard to build. I have a loving and supportive “village” both near and far. I have healthy and happy children who are surrounded by love, comfort, and (most importantly) abundant food, shelter, and clothing. I have a great job that I enjoy, a home I feel safe in, a small group of lovely friends, the ability to spend quality time with my kids, and the freedom to pursue my interests and passions. Life is not perfect, but it sure is wonderful. I am so grateful for this life and everything it has to offer. I’m grateful that I can finally say that, because it wasn’t always the case. Today it is, though, so that is fantastic. Happy Thanksgiving everyone. What are you thankful for today?
