Victim to Grateful

My mind was wondering tonight and I had some thoughts and aha moments (I love those).

Am I being grateful?

I had an awakening to the idea that I was allowing myself to be the victim in some areas of my life. Not just allowing, but choosing, to be the victim in some areas of my life. (what?! that’s not who I am, but it is me and part of my growth.)


“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” ~ Melody Beattie

I was focusing on the lack for what I want and allowing negative thinking and feelings to circle through my mind. Feeling that I’m not worthy, I’m not loved, I’m not deserving.

Even though I know I am worthy. I am loved. I am deserving. I am love.

Yet, I was allowing myself to be the victim of those feelings of unworthiness in thinking about what I want and why I don’t have it. I was not taking responsibility for what I want.

I was choosing thoughts of being a victim, and not choosing positive thoughts of gratitude.

I have so much of what I want! Why was I choosing to focus on what I don’t have?

I choose gratitude! I choose positive! I choose to be grateful for everything that I do have! Grateful for everything I do! Grateful for everything I experience! Grateful for who I am!

I am deserving! I am loved! I am worthy! I am love!

Are you being a victim, or are you being grateful?

YOU are deserving! YOU are loved! YOU are worthy! YOU are love!

Live Your Truth!
