This may be a shorter blog post but it is all good. It is just going to be a vomiting of words. Here we go.
A few weeks ago I was working out in the morning. Every time I work out I need to have headphones in. The music helps me drown everything out and I a focus on my goal for the day. I was on the bike at my local Snap Fitness while I had a time of reflection of how things were going in my life.
It was the first time, in a real long time, that I felt peace.
I felt happy.
I felt warm.
I feel good about myself; physically, mentally and spiritually.
I feel I am learning to love myself again.
I am loving my job again.
I am loving my calling again.
But, not only that, I feel love from others. This is something that I have struggled with a lot.
There is are people I want to thank:
My parents: You both know the ups and downs I have had in the recent months. Thank you for letting me find myself and giving me the space I needed as well as the time and day of being able to talk to you both.
My sister: Thanks for being someone I can just gripe at. I know that I can be the annoying older brother. I do know that whenever we are together somehow we always get one of those belly laughs. You are going to be great at what you do.
My bosses: I have already spoke to them about this. Thank you both for being great role models. Thank you for being great mentors. Thank you for being a listening ear. Thank you for giving me space and thank you for checking in on me even though I probably did not want it. Thank you for your support. Lastly, thank you for being awesome friends.
Supporting cast: This is a huge list. I am sorry I am not listing you all individually but you know who you are. Thank you for your constant prayers. Thank you for the conversations even when I did not want to have them. Thank you for the counseling sessions. Thank you for the unconditional love that I needed.
I am blessed to have all of you in my life. I blessed to receive the grace and love that was offered to me without me asking for it. You all have shown me first hand how the Prince of Peace comforts, unconditionally loves, and stands side by side with us.
Thank you. I just felt like I need to say this to you all.
