What I’ve Learned About My Grateful Heart
One night back in the beginning of March I got this crazy idea and began setting things up with her husband, who did a fantastic job arranging, planning, and coordinating everything from my airport pickup to calling reservations for brunch, which isn’t easy for a part of 12+ people in DC (brunch is a THING there). I should also mention how amazing my own husband is for getting me the tickets to fly home since he’d be working all weekend.
I was so excited to surprise her but was equally excited to see all of our friends we left behind. It was an amazing weekend filled with lots of laughter, love, and good times.
So how does this relate to my gratefulness this Monday?
During my stay I encountered a hiccup (choosing to not go into detail because it’s well behind me now) involving friends of mine and, what I assume to be caused by jealousy (among other things). This is always uncomfortable and never something that anyone wants to deal with, especially when it is amongst friends. I love me some Real Housewives but I am in no way trying to live it out in my life. But, nonetheless it was something that I felt I needed to address because sometimes certain behavior is simply not okay.
What AM I particularly grateful for this week?
-I am grateful for my growth as an individual.
-I am grateful for my self-worth.
-I am grateful that I have found my voice and am no longer hesitant to stick up for myself.
-I am grateful for the friendships I have and how distance doesn’t affect their quality or value.
-I am grateful that I’m at a point in my life where I’m okay with the idea that not everyone is meant to be friends.
-I am grateful for the lesson that clarity can sometimes be achieved through conflict.
-I am grateful for the positive, supportive, people (and husband!) I have in my life and am reminded of that everyday.
I know this post seems to be quite serious in its nature but this weekend taught me many things both about myself and others. I hope you all have a wonderful Monday and a great week! Can’t wait to see who all linked up!
