#️⃣Week 11

After enduring 4 years of college, I remember how many days I felt defeated. There were few days that I experienced happinesses. Much of my attitude, unfortunately, is affected by how others speak, react, and treat me.  It was extremely important for me to keep positive people on speed dial. I depended on my mom and boyfriend at the end of a long day, for a pick-me-up peptalk. I have since learned how to better let things roll off my back. However, I have truly come to appreciate the power of positivity. My goal in life, is to be a  source of light for others. 🌠Aim to be the kind of person that you had always wished you had to lean on when you were younger. 🥂To positive people! 
I challenge you to stop & think about what your grateful for this week.  Comment below 🙏🏼

#️⃣Week 10

May is a month full of special occasions & holidays this year. This week was my college graduation. Today we celebrate Mother's day, next week is my 22nd birthday, and then Memorial day. Even with the countless hours spent in close quarters with my family that can seem endless... I appreciate these moments for they bring the best memories. Today I am grateful for Holidays that bring families together and Mother's day especially. I owe everything to my mom for helping me through the past 4 years of college. I would be lost without her. Who else would I call for life questions or just to talk to while I'm stuck in traffic? Thanks Mom ♥️

A team is only as strong as it's weakest link. 🔗
👩🏼‍💼This week, I am practicing gratitude for co-workers. Over the past few years I have held several jobs in the retail and food service industry. 🌯 Though the work is not always glamorous, the people you work with can make or break your experience. I am blessed to have been able to work with my family and best friends for over 5 years in a food trailer 🚚. & It's not called Wild Annie's for nothing.... It gets crazy in there! We know how to have a good time and we love making our customers happy! 😜
As a future Health coach and trainer, I may not be working so closely with co-workers and I'm sure there will be days that I am going to miss working with a team.

#️⃣Week 8
This week, I am reminded to be grateful for alone time. I have always kept to myself. It can actually be one of my downfalls. However, I believe the countless hours I have spent on my own, whether it be living alone, training alone, or shopping alone... I have found it to be great for personal development. I appreciate that I do not feel the need to rely on others to create my own happiness. I think it has helped me to develop into a strong & independent woman who feels confident that she can kick some ass & take some names if needed. I have experienced plenty of time "alone" & my least favorite time tends to be car rides because it gives me too much time to overthink. However, these morning ⛅ sunrises on the way to work make it all worth it.

Christine. 
I was born in the East Bay and grew up in Seattle.  I moved back a few years ago. I have a lot of family here and have strong roots in the Bay Area.  I’m very lucky to have the ability to live in downtown Oakland, in a rent-controlled apartment, having access to the city and all its offerings.
On this beautiful day, I’m grateful to have the space in my life to be able to have room for creating or expression -- being artistic.  Having the time to do it in a place that is encouraging and inspiring.

I’m grateful for being able to afford things that other people can’t; and for having the opportunity to do things. 
I’m grateful for having family and friends that I know if anything happens, I’ll be able to go to.

I have a 57-minute commute from work🕞. This gives me way too much time to overthink.🤔💭 Today particularly, I made myself angry and exhausted just from thinking about all the setbacks I've had that continue to hinder me from meeting my own expectations. Luckily, I was able to channel that stress into some gun-therapy🔫. 🙏🏼Today I am thankful that the gym 🏋🏻‍♀️ is not my only hobby. Because as much as I would like to be spending every evening lifting weights, for the next couple weeks I have to refrain from excessive walking, bending, or any kind of lifting 😥Today- I am grateful to be healing as expected. I am grateful for a release other than the gym.

✨WHEN YOUR HOBBY BECOMES A JOB✨
This week I’m practicing gratitude towards my hobby - and although expensive, my hobby is body building &competing + the lifestyle
.
I’m thankful for this because it’s something I do entirely for myself
.
Working out, nutrition, fitness... I love it.
And I love that it is something that I choose for me.
.
Ok so what does this have to do with my transformation?
.
Well... smile seems genuine?
.
On the left hand side I was in my senior year of college and in my fourth year of playing division one softball. (2015)
.
I grew up playing & i loved it..But when I went to college... my passion became a job.
.
It was no longer about me and my love for the game... it was about performance and routine - and any ounces of passion that were left got me through OR remembering the passion I had as a little girl often inspired me
.
In this photo I’m burnt out. Fast forward 8 months and I gained a ton of weight because I stopped exercising and everything that I was expected/forced to do as a athlete for so many years
.
A lot of the burn out was pressure I put on myself to play well, while studying and trying to do “college” but still my hobby was no longer a hobby. It was responsibility
.
Today I take my competitive ass on stage and well now I can officially say I’m a competitior.
.
The best part is that I do it for me.
.
I repeat. - the best part is that i do it for me.
.
I think there are very few things I’ve chosen entirely for myself. I think like a lot of you I struggle to put myself first.
.
And even now I’m struggling with the question of competing next because it does affect others and i can’t be entirely selfish.
.
But I’m grateful that I finally found something that makes me happy, that I can enjoy as my alone time & that I can thrive off of.
.
A lot of it is so similar to my college ball days - workouts, routine, competition - but this one is for me..
.
This is why that smile is bright (not just because I got my teeth whitened), shoulders are back, and I’m strutting with confidence
.
Tell me how you choose yourself and how you’re grateful for your hobby! 💛

#️⃣Week 6 🏃🏽‍♀️Typically my life is "go-go-go" I'm guilty of eating in my car as I run from work to the gym or wherever it may be.
😷👨🏻‍⚕️ This week that was all put on hold for surgery. Last Friday I had my gallbladder removed. So thankful that the surgery is done with and was a success. It took 11 years for a diagnosis and am looking forward to a new "normal". 💤I had plenty of time on my hands this week, and got to try out some new recipes like this iced turmeric latte ☺️ I am dying to get back to my busy routine. This week was a humble reminder to be grateful for the busy 🤗

#️⃣Week 5

This week I am expressing gratitude for 3 people in my life. 
1️⃣My parents for supporting the decisions I've made, even when they don't agree with them. They have given me 21 years of knowledge, and trust me to make the right decisions with the tools they have given me. 
2️⃣ Broc, my other half. He makes me smile and laugh the entire time we're together. If I'm not smiling, he's comforting me and doing whatever he needs to make everything okay. He makes me feel safe and that is extremely important to me.
3️⃣ God. He has been there for me every step of the way, even on the days that I didn't want to lean on Him. He has carried me through the darkness, given me plenty of mountains to climb, and has given me a platform to help others. I am grateful that I have accepted Him into my life and know that I can cast my anxiety, fear, and worries on Him for the rest of my life & He will save me. 
I would not be where I am at without this support system behind me, propelling me forward. 
Who in your life has helped you to get where you are? Maybe it's someone you no longer speak to or have never given this much thought. I guarantee no one can do life alone. Be grateful for today & everyday 🌞🌻🤗 I challenge you to stop & think about what your grateful for this week.  Comment below 🙏🏼

Encounters (3/3): Yeshi and Sirindoshi treated us to a round of #druk11000 --- the refreshingly light local beer at 8% ABV and low bitterness. Conversations drifted to what would they like to do as a business at some point ( nothing to do with tourists 😂). It was heartwarming to listen to their plans, as opposed to just dreams 👏👏👏 .

Encounters (2/3): She ran behind me while I was watching the dances during #parotsechu . I held her, looking for what she was hiding from.  Her friends were playing tag with a novice monk dressed as an #atsaras the masked men who aren't formally dancing but are there for gentle crowd control ( there's a deeper spiritual context ) . This went on for an hour to the point where she was permanently behind me, playing with my braid, sliding her hands on my jacket, and finally resting both her arms around my shoulders with her head beside mine, as if waiting for piggy back ride. We couldn't play as the formal closing sacred dance to heaven started.

p.s.: first pic is from the departure lounge at #paro
The hardworking, beautifully bare-faced women of #Bhutan in their traditional #kira. The proper way to wear it is pinned at both shoulders then belted; the contemporary take is more of a skirt than a toga-ish dress. The #toego is the blousy-jacket on top. The #rachu is the fabric worn over the toego across the left shoulder on formal occasions. #52weeksofgrateful

"Ara" is a fermented rice wine --- the version offered to me was a pretty mild one, elegantly smooth like a sake.
.
"Suja" is a butter tea. It's pinkish and salty and for the life of me I forgot to ask why so as I was more distracted with the fact that puffed rice was added, totally transforming  the taste experience.
. 
Both were wonderfully appropriate for the cool spring weather of #Bhutan.

We were told the older ones are made with soil and water, slowly pounded into walls. Some ruins were so solid that a reclaimed one in Paro that's been abandoned for almost two decades simply needed new wood window frames. .

Some ruins were so solid that a reclaimed one in Paro that's been abandoned for almost two decades simply needed new wood window frames. . #lesaventuresdesvillars  #52weeksofgrateful 
Three generations, waiting for the King of Bhutan at the #parotsechu . .

Crossing bridges.
.
There are bridges you keep, there are bridges you leave to the five elements, and yes, there are bridges you burn.
.
May our hearts be guided with wisdom & compassion to find which ones are worth fortifying in our lifetime.

The Gratitude Project (13 of 52)
Patty. 
I’m grateful to have escaped the climb up the “social ladder.” When I was younger, I had some skills and some talents that put me on track to a “successful” path in terms of a career and probably wealth.  When I was in my early 20’s, I just did a 180 and started pursuing art. I’ve had the opportunity to evaluate what truly is important. I’m truly grateful for that. 
I feel lucky.  For instance, I look around and I can’t help but admit how much I love my garden here.  My parents, particularly my dad, were the ones who instilled this sense of tradition in me: that of growing food.  It rescues me from the plight of urban existence. Also, it gives me a chance to share, in a very effective way -- I just grow a little extra and I get to bring some to my neighbors and my friends.  It’s a ripple effect. You know. Then my friends appreciate this giving. That’s my “trickle down.” This is abundance. This is wealth. This is what is of great value to share. Growing food is a connection to earth and nature. Ultimately, it’s a connection to the people. I’m grateful for that.
I also feel lucky that I escaped the trappings of a “corporate job” and such because at a young age, I had a very profound understanding that the moment is now.  April 1st is the anniversary of my sister’s death. She was fourteen when she passed; and I was thirteen. It came as quite a shock. Because of that loss, I just didn’t have any time for trivial matters such as gold and silver and all that.  I’ve viewed everyday as precious and I guess you could say I had a “wisdom” on what matters -- I developed this lust for life and a true appreciation for the connections I make.
So out of this loss, came a deeper understanding of what is of real value.
I find comfort in Buddhist teachings, and one that really resonates with me is the belief that in adversity, we find our strength.  I am grateful that I’ve been able to accumulate the wealth of appreciation for life!

#️⃣Week 4 🎶 MUSIC 🎶
This one made me think for a bit. Music has never been a big part of my life. I will never volunteer to be the Co-pilot D.J. I always would ask my friends for new music suggestions because I was behind on the latest songs. I did realize though that I am very thankful for my boyfriend who sings to me in the car, to make me smile, to calm me down, or just pump up our moods a little. It's pretty cool how easily music can affect an outlook on a situation and for that I am grateful. 
I challenge you to think about what your grateful for this week.  Comment below 🙏🏼

I am beyond grateful for music because it has been my reset button this prep.
Dieting is not an excuse but can cause some major ups and downs with your emotions
My gym has been my escape from a few things lately
And there’s nothing like putting in my headphones turning the volume up and jamming out to whatever remix SoundCloud gives me
.
Ps you definitely realize how grateful you are when you forget your headphones
.
Thinking about getting the AirPods! Thoughts??? Pros? Cons??
.
Or tell me your playlist you listen to at the gym!

This day has been a series of surprises: seeing the unfurled, 18th century 20x20m #thangka of Paro on the last day of the #parotshechu , seeing the sacred dance to heaven performed, and yes, finding ourselves less than a meter away from the King of Bhutan as he walked towards the stage.
.
His humility is amazing as he spoke to his people, including a child with disability who rushed past security and a random old man in a very faded gho. People's King indeed. #truenobility

I’ve never thought of anything specific, as far as gratitude goes.  I mean, this summer, I’ll be 70. Like any other aging hippie, you know, I mean, if we had known we were gonna live this long we would’ve taken better care of ourselves. 
I’m still here. 
I’ve done many things in my youth.  I mean, reckless things, which could’ve ended my life.  I’m saying it was an absolute possibility. I mean, hitchhiking long distances--east, west, north, south.  Motorcycle riding, when I was much younger. 
There was always a chance something could go wrong. It didn’t. 
The thing is though, you know, I just never thought of gratitude in my life.  I mean, it’s here. The whole thing is… is… good. So I never thought about, “oh, what are you grateful for?” I mean, nothing in particular. You know. I mean, am I supposed to suddenly come up with this philosophical idea? “What are you grateful for?” Right? I mean… it’s not part of, you know, my core beliefs. This sort of thing. It just is.  I just am. I’m still here.

52 Weeks of Grateful - Week 3: My Health
.
I’m lucky and grateful I’m a healthy woman
.
Funny thing about that phrase
.
I’m not that healthy in all actuality
.
I have an autoimmune disease and like a million food allergies
.
Unfortunately not the greatest hand to be dealt...
.
But I’m so grateful that I was diagnosed (age 18)
.
Why?
.
Because I felt like shit all the time. And my symptoms when my body was literally destroying itself...I thought were normal....
.
Today yes I have a lot of irreversible damage and I have to be careful about what I eat
.
However because I know, because I did so much research and because I embraced the lifestyle
.
I can FEEL GOOD, PERFORM, COMPETE... and worry a bit less about my physical health and focus on my mindset. (You try focusing with a headache, stomach ache, bloating, leg ages, itchy hands, fatigue, etc etc...)
.
So I’m grateful I figured it out and I’m grateful that I can thrive
.
What are you grateful for?

✨52 Week Gratitude Challenge✨
#️⃣Week 3
This week I am reflecting on my gratitude for my health. Many of you know that I haven't always been grateful for where I am in life due to ongoing battles with autoimmune diseases that have landed me in the hospital 🏥& without the capability to carry out day to day functions. However, today I am grateful! 🤗 
I am feeling so much better than I have in years & have been in the gym lifting consistently for the last 3 months after taking 2 years on & off to slow down & recover. ⏭️Next up is a cholecystectomy (gallbladder surgery 😞) in a few weeks to hopefully end this battle once & for all. I fought the surgeons for weeks to let me keep it... Just not in the cards for me. It will be a 6-8 week recovery period of little to no weight lifting 😥 but I am grateful to have an answer to my problems & a solution! Who else is missing an organ? 😜
I challenge you to stop & think about what your grateful for this week.  Comment below 🙏🏼

I'm grateful for the good and bad things in my life.  The influences--everything so far in my life that got me to where I am now. I'd do it all over again! All the people I've met and mistakes I've made. Until now I was just aimlessly taking classes and I didn't know what I really wanted to do. In the past year or so I've had some things happen to me that made me realize what it is exactly that I wanted to do, which is help people; to make a difference in someone else's life by the time mine's up.  That's firefighting for me. So I'm looking forward to that next stage in my life. That's what I'm grateful for.

Courage has an element of fear, and forging through amidst that awareness.Brave is young, a bit rash, all heart...I think bravery transforms into courage when its been in the fire long enough without bursting into flames... .

An extremely surprised @captain_teban  when they SAID "we love you" and thank you after the YLDC Batch 3 graduates sung in English. The nuns and the cardinal beamed, while Charles Bertille ( Fondacio Asia chairman ) said something to the effect of "who says teachers can't be rock stars?" .

Graduation day for the YLDC students of @captain_teban .

I’m grateful to live here in San Francisco. I’ve been living here for quite a while and especially at this time when prices are exploding.
I have a lot of gratitude.  I’ve won several lotteries in a row:
One, I was born.  Which is, you’re fighting against two-and-a-half billion sperm.  I’ve won. The one that made me. That’s one.
Second one is that I was born to two college-educated parents who stayed together. 
Third, I was born in the United States.  A politically-stable first world country.
It’s just a blind lottery.  Think about it. You did not enter it, but there you are. Nobody thinks of it as a lottery, but it’s true.  I had nothing to do with the circumstances of my birth, yet I won! What’s there not to be grateful for!

WEEK 2
52 Weeks of Gratitude Challenge
🔆
It's the beginning of March and here in Houston, Texas, we are starting to experience some spring weather and I am SO grateful for the sun to finally be shining...
🔅
Over the winter months, its SO EASY to let gray, cold, dreary weather impact how you feel. I kind of just feel a little grumpier, a bit more impatient and my motivation to do anything... goes WAY down.
🔆
Yesterday and today have been absolutely beautiful, and this week's theme is to be grateful for the weather.
🔅
It's also a good reminder that things aren't always 75 and sunny... (unless you live in Souther California then MAYBE you can argue that). We face "gray" weather, "cold" weather, big storms (like Hurricane Harvey this past fall)... but in the end... a few days later, the sun will peak out again or summer will come heating things up.
🔆
So, as I sit here and am BEYOND happy that I can sit outside on this beautiful ‪Sunday afternoon‬, I need to make sure that even on Thursday when it rains (forecasted but who knows...), I will be grateful for the weather... plus... I don't know about you, but I LOVE the smell of rain.

Yesterday someone said to me that she wished life would've turned out different. How sad is that!!! How sad it must be to think you aren't blessed with a new day to make life whatever it is you may want it to be. How sad it must be to feel like you don't have the power to make your life beautiful. Even sadder to be so blind you can't see how amazing life is at whatever stage you're in. At 35 i look around and the path hasn’t always been perfect but God has been good to me and always given me everything I’ve needed to make life beautifully mine. #PeaceOut35✌🏼 #blessed #happywednesday #SweatingOutTheBS #week1 #52weeksofgrateful

Even sadder to be so blind you can't see how amazing life is at whatever stage you're in. At 35 i look around and the path hasn’t always been perfect but God has been good to me and always given me everything I’ve needed to make life beautifully mine. #PeaceOut35 ✌🏼 #blessed  #happywednesday  #SweatingOutTheBS  #week1  #52weeksofgrateful

✨52 Week Gratitude Challenge✨
This week I joined a group of women in expressing what I am most grateful for each week for a year. 
#️⃣Week 1- Why I joined this challenge? 
This is a chance for me to stop & reflect on everything that is going right in my life. The power of positive thinking is an incredible tool. I hope to evolve my thinking, how I carry myself, & how I express myself on a daily basis. 
This week I am most thankful for the job opportunity I was offered on Monday & get to start on Saturday 🤗♥️
Comment below & tell me what you are you grateful for right now🙏🏼

Week 1: Why am I doing this Challenge?
💕
Although I am very grateful for MANY different things in my life, I’m not always actively expressing my thankfulness for what I do have. It’s very easy to be grateful when everything is going well, but what about when things aren’t going in your direction? This is when I need it most. I am doing this challenge to focus on practicing gratitude as a REGULAR habit, so that when I need it most - when I need to take a step back and realize the good in front of me - I can do so.
🔸
I also believe that in creating a new habit a sense of community or surrounding yourself with like-minded people goes a long way. This is why I started this group - so we can all lean on each other, learn and share as we each make it through our challenge… as well as hold each other accountable. What’s even cooler - everyone is on a different week - so the stories and sharing is going to range on different topics.
🔸
I’m beyond excited for this - for this new group and everything good that’s about to come out of it! ALREADY SO GRATEFUL.

I think of life.  I’m grateful for my family and I’m grateful for the experiences I’ve had.  I’m grateful for mindfulness. I’m grateful to have participated with this group called IBME, which stands for Inward Bound Mindfulness Education.  They teach teens how to incorporate mindfulness in everyday life.  It teaches you how to pay attention to being present in the moment. To quiet the mind.  To just stop. 
MIndfulness is being able to bring into focus the little things--for instance, an act as simple as walking down the street: noticing the ground, noticing your shoes, noticing the sound they make as you walk along the pavement, the air maybe brushing you, maybe there’s a breeze, maybe it’s raining, maybe it’s hot, maybe it’s cold.  Mindfulness is appreciating all these little details.  I’m grateful for this practice.  There’s so much to learn and there’s a lot of beauty you can bring out. Mindfulness is such a positive tool to combat ignorance.  In my practice of mindfulness, I’m grateful for the things I’ve learned about myself.

Late post: running into these places never fails to make me smile #52weeksofgrateful #findingjoyeachday #heartstrong #healthyliving #bangkok ... And gentle reminder to all:  #nostraw is the best choice if you forgot your eco-friendly one 😅🌿
Tulips in February in Vientiane are not the easiest things to pull off but the Team clearly has a few hat tricks left, including a surprise home delivery. #52weeksofgrateful #howtonotlovethem #proudtobelao
7 a.m. Monday kickstarted with a challenging flow class at #yogaelements I probably managed 50% of the asanas 😅 but am happy to just be here #52weeksofgrateful #healthyliving #findingjoyeachday

Gratitude.
Right now I’m grateful that I am basically retired.
I worked as a hospice chaplain for almost twenty years and found that to be very good work.  It meant a lot to me.  It seemed to fit my personality, and my gifts and things like that. 
I provided spiritual care for patients who were nearing the end of their lives.  Chaplains in that role are not usually promoting any particular religion. (We may have our own specific religious faiths but we don’t try to proselytize or change anybody’s mind about their religion or their faith or even if they have a faith.) My job was to provide spiritual counseling.
It’s a fairly broad term because a lot of people are reflecting on their lives at that time -- they’re looking back over their lives -- they may be afraid, or anxious; or worried about their families.  My job was to be with them during that time. 
I’m very grateful for the people I met.  In almost every instance, there was something about the person’s life that I wanted to take with me, you know -- whether they were curious about life, or they lived their full life, or they just loved their family, or they found fulfillment in the work that they did -- whatever it was, there was something about their lives that I really wanted to emulate.  Be more like them. 
When I left that work about a year and a half ago, I found that I had a lot of grief still stored up, even though I took care of myself.  It was hard work.  I took a lot of time to reflect on my life and I was grateful for that time. 
I’m grateful for this time.  The time to explore this stage of my life.  I took a photography class and now I’m learning how to work my camera.  And things like that.
I’m grateful for this opportunity to look forward to, as people call it, that “last third” of my life.  And I’m grateful I have the time and resources to be able to do that. 
I’m grateful it’s been a FULL life.

Lunar New Year in Bangkok for a fresh perspective. This is where our spirit of exploration really bloomed as we embraced our non-linear life. This City of Angels has changed in fifteen years, and so did we...still there is this sense of familiarity and acceptance each time we cross paths. For this, we are grateful. #maviesurreal #lesaventuresdesvillars #breathe #52weeksofgrateful #trustthejourney .

The rose vine in the garden was a wild one, creeping up the wooden fence and tangling with whatever was in its way. It broke last year and I was devastated, as it only had one strong branch.
.
Still, I kept its dried thorny limbs gracing the fence in memory of its defiant desire to be itself...I visited it yesterday, an odd Valentine's gesture. She was blooming in this curious shade of peachy pink. I'm still wondering if she'll extend a branch that will insist on being a vine again.
.
For now she gave me a new lesson on thriving despite being harshly torn off its path. Winter never lasts forever.

Just finished an hour of drills. Coach tells me to just serve slowly so it goes smack centre. I did. Then I mixed it up with my faster shots that kisses the lines just so ... It spun out once in a while but I saw my coach smile as he realized my serves were better #playtheedge #risktaker #bounceback #heartstrong #52weeksofgrateful #lifelessons .

And yes, there is something immensely therapeutic with whacking fuzzy green balls 😂💪👊🎾

But having spent a few childhood summers in the farm in San Antonio, I gravitate to natural remedies and traditional medicine, semi-instinctively "getting it". Still partially converting @captain_teban from the platoon of doctors he calls family 😉. #eastmeetswest .

Cris. 
I am grateful for my wife, Lynde. When we met 26 years ago, neither of us were looking for a relationship.  I was divorced at the time, and it was just one of those right-time-right-place kind of things.  Lynde was working part-time as my boss’ secretary.  We struck up a friendship and to this day, we are still best friends!
My gratitude story has to do with a car accident I had back in 1998. I was terribly injured and needed spine surgery.  Lynde saw me through all of it.  She helped me out in my darkest moments and I am grateful for her strength. 
It’s hard to imagine life without Lynde. She has been my rock!

At 10 I was reading novels far above my age group. At 20 I was discovering feminist essays. At 30 I found short stories. In between there was always poetry (and children's stories) ... Now in my 40s, I hear the conciseness in this literary form better. It captures what needs to be said --- the balance between an economy of words and depth of emotion

#lalunasangre was a no show in Vientiane. Instead I was given the gift of a cold spell (17C) and strong gusts of winds blasting through the open wooden windows of the yoga shala, mingling with Toshi's steady, calming voice.
.
As we approached 8:29 p.m. we were in shavasana. Surrender. Let go. The ground supports you...and the heady scent of #damadenoche trailed in with my #exhale .

Toni.
I am grateful for the role that my higher power, which I call “God” plays in life.  I am grateful that I am aware of this so that when times are hard, I need not be afraid or in fear.  I am grateful that I am heavily into faith; and that I am blessed with this because I get through the tough times a lot easier than some.  That is a huge blessing.
Actually, I have strengthened my personal relationship with God since my ex-husband left me about two and a half years ago.  We were married for 13 years. I didn’t want to be with anyone else and I still don’t.  I’ve had to depend on me and guess what?  It’s totally working! 
I am grateful for the fact that you’re sitting across from me, asking me that question because it then brings me back to go over my gratitude list.  And how do you not feel good after that!
