Generally, I am full of gripe and negativity in my posts...at least it seems so to me. But I try to always find my thanks on a daily basis. If I didn't or couldn't, well, life would be over.
I am very thankful for the life I have thus far. Despite any fear or insecurity, I see that I have gained wisdom with every moment that I have lived. I look to the bigger picture and figure that this is what I have to experience in order to be the best person I can be by the end of it all. So, I guess I see this part of my life as preparation for the next stage, whatever that may be.
New opportunities have to top this year's Thanksgiving list. Without them, there is nothing. I fear loss so much that I sometimes avoid opportunities. Lately, that seems to be my motto in living. Thankfully, the Universe is loving enough to kick my ass and force me into them. And, I rarely go willingly into them; but I find myself there all the time.
I guess I shouldn't look at these movements forward as loss. If I leave a friend or love behind, I should realize that for that period in my life I learned from them to move to the next. If our paths are meant to cross again....they will and it will be better the next time around.
New opportunities. I wish them upon you as well. Don't be so mean to yourself that you're not happy with them. The fear is ok. It's expected. But there is reward in them. I promise. Examine your life before the opportunity. Were you happy? Were you complete? Give yourself the benefit of the doubt that you will do wonderfully in this time of change; and at the start of the next new opportunity, you will be an even grander you.
Happy Thanksgiving, lovies. I do love you in all that you are. As imperfectly perfect as you are. Here's to new opportunities and your strength to face them head on....willingly or unwillingly.
