Totally joking with the title of this blog post haha! Anyways, I had the sudden urge to write about what I was thankful for. Of course like everyone, I am always thankful for my family, friends, health, the fact that I get to do what I love everyday, etc. But I wanted to write about some other things that I am grateful for that are usually seen as a negative and how changing your perspective can change it into a positive one. So here it is 3 things I am thankful for.
I’m thankful for heartbreak - Now, this doesn’t have to mean heartbroken by a person. Even though I have had my fair share of heartbreak. You could be heartbroken because you didn’t get that job you wanted or that you didn’t reach a certain goal. Whatever it is having my heart broken has taught me a couple things. One being, that some things aren’t meant for you or that people/experiences sometimes have an expiration date. And that’s ok. For example, a friendship that I cared about and wanted to maintain but didn’t feel appreciated or loved back. Which, you can’t expect everyone to treat you the way you treat them. But that heart break taught me that it’s ok to let go of things that aren’t for you anymore. Another thing heart break has taught me is that I’m stronger than I think. As harsh as it sounds, sometimes you just gotta move on and know that everything will work out!
I’m thankful for failure - I’m sure like most people… no one likes to fail. I think for me it’s a pride thing. You don’t want anyone to know that you failed at something. BUT WHO CARES?! “We learn from failure not from success.” So whatever you feel that you failed at, have it teach you what you’re passionate about or inspire you to do something else that you love!
I’m thankful for my stubbornness - So, I turn 26 this year. Whoop-whoop! If you don’t know, I don’t have a full-time job; I have three part-time jobs that I love very very much. Like most parents, my mom/dad have encouraged me to get a full-time job so I will have health insurance. Literally, when I turned 25 they were already bugging me about finding a full-time job. And of course, that is the more convenient way of having health insurance but I realized I wouldn’t be happy doing that. I know this is cheesy and cliché but life is too short to not do what makes you feel alive! Bet on yourself and be stubborn with accomplishing your goals! I may not be rollin’ in dough right now but I know that with hard work and a happy heart I will be successful.
So there ya go! I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Give extra love to your loved ones! Also, I’d love to read what you’re thankful for! Leave a comment down below (:
