I'm grateful to be part of a community that pulls together during adversity. I feel more confident and more cohesive because of this experience. I wish this could be my family!
I'm grateful further to finally find a space where I am understood and not judged or fixed. I haven't felt that even my closest friends understand what I am going through or how to support me (not their fault). I feel so relieved to have found a space where I can explain my energy deficits, my grief, my trauma, my challenges, and not be told to start running and exercising, or go for a walk, or get out of the house... where someone just listened and said "You are not alone" and "I experience something similar" and "You are not the only one to go through this". It's such a relief to feel supported and understood. I feel hopeful. I feel I might find a solution. I feel like I have more power now to move forward with next steps to enhance my life.
...is practicing gratitude every day for 365 days. Began on April 22, 2016, let's see how life changes over the course of this next year!
