    I finished my first week back at work today.

    The job doesn't pay ****, and most people would hate doing it, but I really like it. The people I work with are insane, so I feel right at home

    I have been very blessed in my life.   I have always had more than enough.  I have never been hungry, or homeless, or unloved.  I am grateful everyday for all that I have been given.  Some people think I don't have much, but I have my health...

    I'm of the general opinion

    that things will always work out. Maybe not the way we hoped, but they will work out. But sometimes I'm trying to find a way, and I just can't see it. I keep trying to think of a solution, and I'm coming up with nothing. Every time that happens, one of the amazing people in my...

    Out with the old, in with the new.

    I thought I was attached to a place that I was working at, and they sent me to a new location. I was afraid of change and at first rejected the whole idea. But I didn't realize that everything would be fine and that sometimes what you thought was good, wasn't as good as it could...

    For the people I love

    who are alive right now. For all the chances we get to learn and grow. For the kindness of friends, family, and strangers. For the dreams that breath hope into our lungs. For even being able to feel grateful.

    Stop being ungrateful.

    – No matter how good or bad you have it, wake up each day thankful for your life. Someone somewhere else is desperately fighting for theirs. Instead of thinking about what you’re missing, try thinking about what you have that everyone else is missing.
