I forget sometimes how much I have and focus on what I don't have. That attitude tends to make life difficult for me and then I'm not the nicest person to be around.
In the last year I've had a lot of ups and downs, and I want to focus on the ups. I started a brilliant new job and i've learned so many things. I met several new people and said good bye to many other people. I've learned that I want to change many things about myself, and that I need to focus on making a good existence for myself. And I've also learned that it's easier and much to give than to always take. That sentiment may sound trite but I believe in it.
I've made mistakes and I just want to try and atone for those and forgive myself and hope others will forgive me. I've hurt people intentionally and unintentionally and again I've forgiven myself and hope those people will forgive me.
In a world that is always talking about what we're lacking, I want to focus on what I have and what I can give to others.
I am thankful for my life, my children, my family, my home, my job, learning opportunities, being able to love, being loved, being forgiven, forgiving, and most of all just being grateful for everything in my life.
