Not doing much exciting this New Year's eve... normally don't . Normally an introspective time for me and even more so this year.
My life has never been without numerous and @ time seemingly insurmountable struggles. But I learned the practice of gratitude and in difficult times it has been my strength. Because in the end, the struggles gave taught me invaluable lesson and made me who I am ... and I am pretty happy with who I am ...
My greatest lesson i learned was that it was still possible to find joy a midst the storms ... Thank God for that ... had I waited for the storms to pass ... I would be miserable and bitter. I am not sayin there weren't times I didn't get the "poor me"s or "why me"s but practicing gratitude it's gotten easier to let it go and look for the lesson... learning to dance in the rain!
My New Year's wish to all of us struggling with whatever our struggles are!
Sincerely ... Christine
