A week of thankfulness in review.
Novemeber 11: Veterans
I certainly do not always agree with why we go to war or the lies that get us there or what happens there, but I do support those who are willing to risk their own life and liberty for me and mine.
Most emotions to be had in the world are rolled up into that simple little word. And every single one of them has allowed me to grow, in every sense. Thank you, family dearest, for driving me crazy, making me cry (sometimes because I am laughing so hard), listening to me rant and rave, allowing me to retreat into myself, perfect the "look of death", develop my loud laugh, holding me down and tickling me until I lose my voice from screaming, and loving me.
November 13: Positive thoughts. I decided to take over the world. It is absolutely amazing the effect positive engery, words, thoughts, and actions have had on me in the past couple of weeks. AND on others.
November 14: Alone time.
For all of my love of social activity. I love being alone. I love the time it allows for me to retreat into my thoughts, have amazing dance parties to Robbie, craft, clean, write, read, and generally be/do whatever the hell I want.
November 15: T.W.G. (Time With God)
I've started attending a new church. They are genuinely the nicest people I have met. I'm still my cynical self. I have always had a relationship with Christianity where I'm on the run. There are times I'm running to it, but most often from it. I took it on in college the way I take on everything. Like a project. No surprise I have a degree in history and religion. T.W.G. and the church are accepting and emotive. I am accepting (but don't forget, cynical) and emotive about everything EXCEPT god, but there have been times when it finally breaks through and the feeling of love and acceptance is something I wish I always felt. I found that again this Tuesday. I actually cried.
November 16: Fitting into my skin. I feel like I'm getting it right more often, this being me thing. It feels amazing.
November 17: Laughter. I love laughing. I do it all the time. I have a loud laugh. Sometimes I think I should be Mrs. Claus. I love the freedom that comes feeling joy loudly! I am especially thankful for the times when there is someone next to me doing the same.
November 18: Natural Beauty. I am not a fan of snow, but I am thankful that I live in a place surrounded with so much natural beauty that even something I don't like makes me warm and fuzzy.
