Being Thankful... The challenge and the beauty.
Seeing the glass half full vs half empty.
Living in Maryland hasn’t been easy for me. I miss having family nearby other than my husband and daughters.
I miss my childhood friends. I miss having a handful of people I can call if I need help. Many days I feel alone..
My husband has his family. My daughters have each other. The sisterhood they have is AMAZING and for this I AM THANKFUL.
Without having family nearby, I learned how to depend on me. I became stronger. I suffered loss. I learned not everyone deserves your attention. For these things I AM THANKFUL.
Maryland isn’t Minnesota nice... It’s Maryland. It’s raw, it’s pushy, it’s a different world. The differences between Baltimore & Annapolis cultures are even a learning experience......
You have to live here to fully experience it and relate. You have to live here without any adult relatives to completely relate.
I chose to stay here & raise my children, have an awesome career managing healthcare and an even better career teaching yoga throughout the DC metro. I met my husband in Maryland and a ton of amazing people who I’ve been blessed to work with & get to practice yoga with on a weekly basis. I’m not sure if my class knows how blessed I feel to see them on a weekly basis, learning together, growing together, simply being connected. I have a yoga family. For these things, I AM THANKFUL.
Im THANKFUL for ALL of my experiences the good and the bad. The GOOD ones allow me to be happy with amazing memories and the bad ones allow me to have empathy for others and be compassionate. I AM THANKFUL.
We have so many things to be thankful for but sometimes we get stuck & forget we are “Exactly where we need to be” so when I remember this... I AM THANKFUL 🙏🏼
This Holiday, lets INTENTIONALLY FOCUS on the GOOD, the POSITIVE, and allow ourselves to BE THANKFUL🙏🏼
🙏🏼 Namaste 🧘🏻♀️
