Today I am thinking about things I have to be grateful for in my life.
I have been deeply depressed for a month. I spent many of my days in bed. I am really seeing light again today, especially when you find old friends who remind you of you were once before. The most important fact is they still see you as that person and it is who you are even today. Sure, we are all worn and have tread marks where the freight car ran us over while we were chasing anything but true dreams.
The next moment happens. You walk into your room see the bed with body image mashed into it for the past month and you simply say, enough. You pick yourself up and you smile because someone spoke to your heart; that was enough to make you understand your dreams have not died.
No one has to share your views or ideas to show they care. No one has to agree with you for you to show the same respect and care back. That’s called love.
The Five Promises
I promise to put forth the effort to do better tomorrow than I did today.
I promise to remember who I am
I promise to not give up on my dreams.
I promise to take interest in the next person who crosses my path.
I promise to love with all that’s in me.
I am grateful for family and friends. They never let you forget who you are!
