That I am too BLESSED to be stressed! I might feel like I have lost a lot. I gave up my late teens and early twenties and had to grow up fast. I have cried more tears and have fallen more times than I would like to count. I know what it is like to lose my family and friends and wonder if I would ever see them again. I used to dig deep into my memories and remember what it was like to live a life of freedom where I was free to dream and free to be me. I NEVER gave up faith and hope and I believe it was my faith and hope that helped me survive and find my way home. In my darkest hours I prayed the most and stayed positive.
I am free to live my life as the strong and independent woman that I know I am capable of being. Life has its ups and downs and challenges. I still have a hard time letting go and saying goodbye to the people I love, but I am learning that that’s life. Life is BEAUTIFUL and worth living. Every day is an opportunity to learn new things, make a difference, spread kindness, and become the Best versions of ourselves. I’m sad about some circumstances, but I have SO much to be happy about.
The next time you feel down and blue; think about the first five blessings that come to mind then thank God for them.
Peace, Love, and Blessings Always,
