As we inch closer to Thanksgiving and as my 26th birthday(November 1st) just past. I feel even more thankful for everything I have. I’m learning the true meaning of being thankful for what you have and what you don’t.
There is nothing more profound than understanding the true meaning of family, happiness, growth, and love.
Let’s talk about family:
My family is my world. We may go through our differences but one thing still remains the same is we will always be FAMILY.
Sometimes that hardest job I have is trying to make sure everyone is ok. I am so focused on making sure no one wants for anything that I forget to think about Cynethia.
This is where your family comes in and reminds me of what’s important.
No family does not have to be blood to bring you back to reality.
Now let’s talk about happiness:
As I inch closer to 30, the only thing that I focus on now is my happiness. If it does not bring me happiness, I move away from it. I don’t focus on it.
In fact, it doesn’t even catch my attention. I just don’t see it. This is what keeps my happiness at a balance and understanding that life is too short to focus on things that don’t bring joy and happiness.
How has my growth changed my life?:
My growth has been on top since knowing that I’m changing certain things in my life. Growth and happiness to me go hand and hand. If I’m not happy, how can I grow from the experience?
The growth of understanding that life waits for no one. Is becoming more and more a single statement in my life. It’s a staple of knowing that I am changing for the better. This is also a way of me showing myself how much of an adult I’m becoming.
Who says adult life is not worth trying. No doubt it’s not easy but anything worth having is worth working hard for.
A little hard work doesn’t kill anyone.
Last but not least Love:
Have you ever love something or someone so much that all you ever want to see is it flourish to unprecedented heights.
I for one love to see people excel to some of the most amazing people they can be. I guess this comes with growth.
I don’t like the idea of not wishing others well. I love to see people around me be as successful as they see themselves and if I can help in any way. I chose to be right by their side in any shape or form.
I’ve grown a custom to loving other through their joy, sorrow, and pain. Nothing makes me love life more than putting my best effort forward and helping others through their most trying times.
Love does not have to be a romantic relationship. It can be unbelieve friendship, business (You can love a business) or just plain ole love.
I want you to write down on a piece of paper or your laptop(whatever method you prefer):,
What your family means to you?
What brings you happiness?
what helps you grow?
How love changed your life?
And then reflect on what your you are thankful for.
