Today, I am so very thankful. I am thankful for each and every one of you. I have been struggling to no end with the desire to drink, but I have not given in because of the tremendous amount of support I have received! I have had so many people reach out to me to make sure I’m okay and to give me encouraging words. And for that, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Today, I am also thankful for rejection. I was rejected by a website, I will not mention who, but they told me that they don’t like my writing style and that I did not meet their expectations as a blogger. They did, however, offer me a chance to shoot a video on mental health in the youth for another position. I have yet to decide if I am going to pursue that opportunity or not. But the reason that I am thankful for rejection is because it helps keep me humble. It helped me see that not everybody is going to like what I have to say or how I say it and that is okay! Not everybody has to like it!
I am so thankful for so many things daily, but these two are what I am extra thankful for today.
