I am focused on me. I am strong. I love and am loved dearly. I am blessed. I live in success. I have 幸せ (happiness)~
I am grateful for all the lessons, tears, joys, and experiences I’ve experienced over the last few months. Little did I realize that it had been almost four months since I last updated my diary~ Although I still have been practicing appreciation and gratitude, I was not writing enough and took myself away from this website~ //>.<//
I am grateful for the conflict to resolve so neatly last winter~ I was having a hard time in school and was upset by how people could act in such malicious manners to save their own face despite purportedly wanting to help others. I didn’t want to be like them and felt disheartened by the pretentiousness that was around me. Just when I was about to give in to negativity, a client returned to tell me how much he appreciated my work and what I had done for him. His stories reminded me that my purpose was to help people, not to engage in petty manipulations or be troubled by trifles stirred by disingenuous people~ I decided to extend an olive branch and took a step back~ It initiated the resolution and the other person also apologized and made amends~ I am now at peace with what I did and was glad that I did not give in to darkness~
I am grateful for all his love, support, and affections over the holidays~ He took me out for lots of yum yums and got me gifts here and there, including this lovely card~ I still have one more present to receive and am waiting for the right now to pick it out myself as it is a personal one that he cannot gift without my choosing~ Little me feels loved \^o^/
I am grateful for my lovely friends and family who care and love me~ I miss my friends who are away and who I do not get to see often anymore but thankfully we are still connected and could talk/see each other via online platforms – hey, it’s better than nothing!
I am grateful for new opportunities to arise and how resilient I have become~ I noticed how quickly now I am able to recover from things that would in the past get me down and mopey~ I think after all these years of doing gratitude journals, my mindset has shifted and I suppose that is why I am always able to attract new opportunities so quickly~
I am grateful for new beginnings in the year of 2019 and all the happiness to come~
I pray that You will continue to guide me and bring me new blessings. Thank You for the year 2018 and may 2019 be my best year yet~!!!
In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen
