I appreciate my mom for thinking about me always and being so patient and understanding with me. I appreciate her recently taking on most of the workload in the house (due to certain circumstances) without complaining even once!!! I appreciate always having someone to listen to me and my meandering thoughts, both in this community or in real life.
I appreciate my lecturers' patience and trust in me. I'm grateful for having my own bed to sleep in. I'm so happy that I still get to have moments of true happiness and excitement. I'm thankful for recently being able to calm myself down first before entering spirals of anger and anxiety. I'm thankful that I still have a rational head on my shoulders despite everything. I'm grateful for losing the weight I gained from another time in my life -- it really feels like I'm shedding those memories and the me from then to become a new and better person. To becoming whole!
I hope everyone who reads this finds something in their life to appreciate too <3 I'll be sending all of you good thoughts and I hope you find whatever you're looking for on this forum, whether you are fully aware of it now or not. I hope that you not only realize the good in you but also continue to spread your love and positivity with the people around you. : )
