Moving on . . . to Gratitude

Sometimes, you just gotta move on…

either from friends or a situation. This time is just one of those times for me. The situation had become unhealthy and simply wasn’t worth the effort. After months of stress and concern, it was time to leave.

The situation and the people involved don’t deserve the effort of further discussion, and so I’ll move on to gratitude. Yes, as I’ve gotten older, I realize more and more just how important gratitude really is. All too often, I have not truly appreciated my blessings until they were gone. I have been blessed with so many positive people and situations, and I will admit that at the time I was too caught up in my own preoccupations and problems to really stop and understand just how much of a blessing they were in my life.

Well, no more. I’m moving on…leaving a bad situation and moving on to gratitude. Now, I’ll admit that my choice leaves me and my family in a bit of a precarious situation, but we have each other. And I feel a stress has been relieved from my life.

So today I woke up and thanked God for this day. I snuggled with my honey and realized just how blessed I am to have him in my life. I don’t know what tomorrow may bring, but it’s got to be better than the past few months.

And that’s something to look forward to.
