256 // A Compete Wreck

Today I am grateful for:

  1. Family. I can’t say enough how lucky I am to have the family I do. It wasn’t just today either. There is so much love, support, and acceptance between us that I never feel alienated, ashamed, or afraid to be my authentic self. That’s more than so many people have.
  2. A good cry, a good laugh, and the healthy expression of anger. No emotion is wrong and certainly no emotion should ever be suppressed. Quite the contrary, in fact. Every emotion is information, communication, and motivation and the best thing you can do with each is accept it, embrace it, and express it.
  3. Having a lot more weekend left to go. So, today was tough. Today was draining, overwhelming, and just plain sad, but it not the end of the world, or even the end of the weekend. I’m grateful for time to decompress, to create, and to find joy before the work week.
