Reaching back to who I was
Even as I must continue forward
Going to take my licks as they come
Especially when I have earned them
Teaching and learning and always still yearning
To be more than I once was.
This might be strange, but I’m grateful for the feeling of regret today. I won’t go into why, but I am grateful for the ability to feel this emotion, just so long as it doesn’t accidentally take over my life.
Check out the original Thankful Thursday.
Of all the times this year that I have pulled my hair out over things, wanted to scream in frustration (and actually followed through on that desire), wanted to throw things (but didn’t, because no matter how I throw it, it always ends up hitting me), I am grateful for the ability to feel.
Even when it’s just feeling like I’m going to be sick.
Because not feeling is scarier than feeling like you can’t contain yourself within your own skin.
Check out the original Thankful Thursday. (I will update the link later, when I’m done with my Nanowrimo writing for the day…or possibly some time next week. Things are busy here.)
