I will appreciate my blessings.

I am eating healthier trying to live longer. My illness is hard for me. I like myself despite my difficulties. I appreciate what I have. I try not to covet my neighbor’s things. I realize everyone has problems. Things may appear one way but I was healed by God one day. I know I have come a long way. I can see God’s hand when I look over my life. He is so good. I can’t change the past. I live in the present because I only have the time I have left. Health is important. I try to make healthy choices if and when I can. I like myself. I am not conceited don’t get me wrong but I am so comfortable in the skin I am in remembering hard experiences that were hard for me as a child. I know no one can take my soul away from me. Writing is something I really love.
