Attitude of Gratitude: day 6

 "You could have been anything... and you are you."

"You could have been anything... and you are you."

It's so easy to want to fit in. It's easy to fall into the fear of rocking the boat, making waves, standing out, incurring disapproval. But we are not here to hide or be ordinary. We are not here to be just like anybody else. Today I am grateful for:

  1. People who see me as I am and love me for it. Who don't tell me who I am, but ask me into being.
  2. Breakfast bagel sandwiches, especially when enjoyed with a friend. I've been eating plenty of delicious comfort food recently, but it's all been geared towards cleansing since that's what my body was craving. Until today. Today my brunch had gluten, dairy, and meat... and it was amazing! Everything in moderation.
  3. The unconditional love and happiness that animals bring with them wherever they go.
