After a very busy and long week, I am thankful for… reflection.
Today as I spent much of the day up at the hospital waiting for yet another cannula to be poked in to my tough old skin (as I am often so boldly reminded), I had much time to sit and reflect while I waited to be called up for my CT scan. Reflect I did on the week that has been, on the feelings that emerge every time I sit in this seat and the things that lie ahead of my near future. I won’t deny there is an uneasy feeling that flows over me when I have too much time to think and often when this happens I like to dive head first in to magazines and the beautiful melodies of Angus and Julia Stone; my sanity saviors and my place of escapism. But today I couldn’t focus on these… So in acknowledgement it was time to address the thoughts that required reflecting upon. I realized that allowing myself these moments to acknowledge what has entered my world I give myself the opportunity to give thanks for what I have achieved, to be proud of who I am, to realize what I want and what I don’t want in my life and to move forward to the new challenges or experiences that soon follow suit!
I like the moments where I realize that life often gives you the helping hand to appreciate its possibilities and also reminds you that reflection gives you courage to be a stronger person… if you give it the acknowledgement that it deserves. I am grateful for reflection, in all its forms.
What are you thankful for on this beautiful Thankful Thursday dear Naked?
