Three things I’m grateful for…

I’m grateful for the health (and patience) of my companion animals. So many are here for only a year or less, but each teaches me new lessons on how to love what we have while we have it, and how to accept letting go of what is not ours to keep. My little ones have many daily treatments, and I’m thankful that they love me despite them. These animals are my world, and they’ve taught me to appreciate the difference between a hard day and a truly bad day.

I’m thankful for the bright side of anxiety – how it forces us to examine what isn’t working in our lives, and prompts us to make positive changes each day to keep improving. I no longer beat myself up over baby steps in the right direction. I may not always hit the mark, but at least I’m aware of when I miss it.

I’m thankful for a wonderful new blog to follow. It’s nice to have daily reminders of things to be grateful for, especially during times when I’m not feeling all that grateful myself. Sometimes we just need to see the world through a different set of eyes.

Thank you for welcoming me to your group. :)
