thankful.

my heart is full with gratefulness for a lot of things lately. sometimes i feel that i don’t deserve the life i’ve been given, but most of the time, i feel that it’s giving me strength to turn around and use what i’ve been given to help other people – whether it be through my job or volunteering or loving the people around me more fully.

i’m thankful for my friends – new and old. for my family. for my boyfriend. for good health. for the ability to walk. for the ability to speak and hear. for the city i’m exploring. for the path that is leading me to law school. for the recent jobs i’ve fallen into and people there that i’ve been lucky enough to learn from. for time to read. for the dedication to live a life where i am constantly learning. and for things as simple as the sunshine and the rain.

i’m overflowing.

“appreciation is the highest form of prayer, for it acknowledges the presence of good wherever you shine the light of your thankful thoughts.”
