Don’t put a period where God has put a comma
I saw this yesterday and it got me thinking. I couldn’t even dare do that. This past year has taught me a lot of things, though it still can’t trump my worst year which was a few years back. The reason it’s not that bad for me because I believe I have already experienced the worst year. So a few years ago on my worst year, it was a year of utter confusion, of feeling like I wanted to turn my heart off, something like that. But this time, it’s different or maybe I got stronger, I’m thankful.
I’m thankful for all the lessons the year has taught me
I’m thankful for all that came to light and made me realize who I really am
I’m thankful for every thing that happened that made me retrace my steps and reminded me what I’m capable of
I’m thankful for the door that finally closed and made me ponder that maybe I kept my heart open to it for so long
I’m thankful for the support system I have that fuels my drive for life’s battles every time
I’m thankful for the people who showed me what role they play in my story even though it wasn’t what I thought it was
I’m thankful for the tears on my pillow at night or in the morning for they were prayers when my heart couldn’t speak and I know each drop was heard
I’m thankful to realize that I have a heart that is stronger than I thought she was
I’m thankful for the ones that I have lost, it was fun while it lasted
I swore not to have a New Year’s resolution for the next year. I just pray for my family’s health and happiness then I’m good. Anything else in my life, I will just let it happen. After all, discovering a whole new side of myself that I intend to keep, learning that my heart could go to battles with me, what could life throw at me that I can’t endure. I’m not taunting, but I’m just positive that I have slayed mightier dragons in the past, the more powerful the dragons you slay, sharper will your sword be, thicker will your shield get and wiser will you handle them. This year wasn’t that bad, I’m thankful for every single thing that happened.
