Gratitude Challenge: Day 20

The alchemists spent years in their laboratories, observing the fire that purified the metals. They spent so much time close to the fire that gradually they gave up the vanities of the world. They discovered that the purification of the metals had led to a purification of themselves..
- The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

A gratitude message to Myself

You can only take so much. But still it’s that much. It is uncommon for anyone to be able to handle what you always dread. When everything seemed too bad for a news. But still, you remain grateful.

You wake up sometimes thinking if you could be normal. To just get out of bed, work not for the money alone, love without the intention of hurting or getting hurt, and live for just yourself – even just for once.

But you are born to this world different. Apart. Extraordinary. Dissimilar. You may feel down about it sometimes, but regardless, you should be grateful.

I know sometimes you just feel like wanting to seek what you want, do it without worrying about others’ feelings, or struggling to do what’s right. What is perceived as right.

I know sometimes that you just wish that you won’t be the one responsible to hold things together, but just be a part of those which should be held.

Thank you for being such a tough b*tch. I am grateful for being you. Regardless. :)

Dear Dori,

You've come a long way. Congratulations on the tougher faith, loyalty, patience, courage and resilience manifesting in your life right now.

Be delighted in the treasures bestowed upon you of unwavering love, stronger bonds and family ties. Take pride in your commitment to relationships, priorities and work.

Continue to find blessings hidden in every adversity and ever grateful for the joy of accepting life as it is, as it happens.

Give yourself a pat on the shoulder for the little triumphs everyday where you've grown in character and wisdom.

Spread the love virus to practically every being you encounter and reflect the Lord's goodness. May kindness be your middle name.

Hold on to your dreams and keep focused on them as they are your driving force to wake up revved up in the morning.

Remain believing in yourself and relying firmly in the Lord's mighty hand to assist you in every endeavor.

You are a champion in God's eyes. Remember that always.
