Thankful Thursday: What I’m Thankful for this Week

imageSometimes we find ourselves in situations where we really need to be honest about our intentions.

For all of my talk about self-awareness, there are still certain areas in my life where I have trouble being honest with myself.

I call them triggers.

This past week brought back some of those triggers.

It always amazes me how traumas from our past can so quickly trump common sense. My experiences have roots in my heart and in my mind, and no matter how hard I’ve worked to weed them out, they creep back in and cause me to question who I am today.

And that’s what matters. Who I am today.

Who I am in this moment.

But I can still be grateful for who I was then.

I can still appreciate the journey that brought me to who I am right now.

Triggers be damned.

And in true cosmic-coincidence-style, fate threw me this bone this morning as a reminder of what I know all too well. That “click” that locked things in place for me in the past, and thankfully, it resounded loud and clear this week.
