I am a moody Gemini. There, I said it. I, Joey Glover, am a moody Gemini. Oooh that feels good to finally come out. 🙂 But it doesn’t make me a bad person…! And it certainly doesn’t make me ungrateful for all the wonderful things I have, or have had, in my life so far.
It’s always worth reminding yourself, that even when things go wrong; when life doesn’t go your way; or you find yourself distinctly unhappy, blessings should always be counted. The really hard times will come when you lose those blessings.
I am thankful for my parents; without their acceptance, support, understanding, not to mention their home, I would truly be alone. Knowing there will come a time when they are no longer here is inconceivable, despite my advancing years.
I am thankful for the love I have been fortunate enough to receive, in all its forms. The love of a partner is second to none, but I have much love from friends near and far, and from my family; some of whom I am so close to that I can’t imagine my life without them. I am blessed to have them all. Love itself is a blessing.
I am thankful for the love I have been able to give; it enriches my life, gives purpose and happiness. To feel love emanating from your soul is a wonderful thing. Those whom I love, or have loved, certainly know about it! 🙂
I am thankful for my friends for helping me weather my storms; for checking in, offering comfort or stern words as appropriate; for championing me when I feel worthless. Their selflessness and generosity, whether being a simple inbox message, or an arrival on my doorstep is forever appreciated.
I am thankful for my job. It may not be my ideal vocation, but it has enabled me to right the wrongs of my financial past; provided a lifestyle that I, and others, have benefitted from; and it gives me the freedom to work as and when I feel like it. Now that is a true blessing. Being self employed gives me the gift of time.
I am thankful for my auto-pilot, guiding me through my days, regardless of how I feel; bettering me now for the potentials of my future, even though some days, in this difficult year, I have wished I’d forget the significance of breathing.
I am thankful for my cat, for bringing me laughter, companionship and love.
I am thankful for my morals and principals. I believe they make me a good person, a better person. Regardless of how I feel about my own life it is never my intention to do wrong by people.
Be thankful for all.
