I am sitting at work, thinking about how I feel lighter. I am starting to enjoy this version of myself. I am changing so much and handling things differently than I used to. I am inspired to do more still. There's so much more I want to accomplish, but for once, it feels manageable. My therapist reminded me this week of how much I have been putting in the work, making me look back at how far I have come. I sometimes forget to praise myself because the changes have been gradual. It's been slow progress, so sometimes you don't recognize it. But I feel it today, and I am so grateful. I have a lot to be thankful for and a lot more to come to be grateful for. I feel excited for the next part of my life (even though I am still unsure where it's going). It feels full of positive, endless possibilities. It would make me feel scared in the past because I wasn't sure what was coming.
I encourage you to pick something that you can change your perspective on. How can you look at the problem as something positive to tackle? How can you shift your mindset, open your mind, change the filter and be inspired by it, grow from it, bloom from it?
