Some people might think my life is boring. I really don’t goout. I don’t drink. I don’t like places with lots of people very much. I don’t even really have friends that I hang out with. I have my family and my work. 🙇🏻♀️
But I am continually amazed at how much I enjoy my life. 🙆🏻♀️Even in this crazy day and age.
To be honest, I used to be a self harmer, and I struggled every day for years and years with debilitating depression and pain. I spent most of my time trying to figure out how to harm myself. 🙍🏻♀️🙎🏻♀️
Then I started looking for light in the darkness. Becoming comfortable with the darkness as my friend rather than my enemy. 👯♀️
And I started learning Chinese without expecting it to help, but it just happened to change my life. 🥰
And last night I giggled my way to sleep because every single student I spoke with yesterday made me laugh, taught me something, shared with me about their life...and I was bursting with gratitude. 😅🥰
It’s the simple things;
It’s the moments;
It’s the people whom I speak with who are across the world from me, learning and struggling every day;
It is this life that I cherish.
It was given to me, and I am learning every moment how to give thanks and govern it wisely. I am scared, imperfect, and a fumbling mess most of the time. But I am loved. I am cherished. And Because of that I can also love and cherish others.
So I just wanted to share that today. No real reason. I hope someone out there is inspired to keep making the darkness their friend and settle into who they are no matter who that is.
You are all you need to be.
You are here.
What a beautiful treasure you are. ❤
