As I round out my 7-day trip through 2017, I had a hard time thinking of a final thing to be thankful for. And then it hit me like a ton of bricks:
When I consider everything I’ve been through in the last year, and how I’ve managed to continue pushing through, I have to be really thankful and appreciative of who I am as a person.
Life enjoys throwing curve balls my way, and I’ve become quite an expert at dodging them. I could get into nitty-gritty details, but that would spin this back around into a negative. And that’s a place I don’t want to go.
So I’ll leave it as this:
I am strong. I am smart. I am adequate, I am enough. My world does not revolve around the choices or actions of others. I am my biggest fan and my best friend. There is no one I would rather be at the end of the day besides myself.
And for that, and many other things, I am eternally grateful.
