The sun will come out tomorrow, and when it does, I hope it brings a smile to your face.
Poetry by Leanne Rebecca Ortbals
Today is the day that Facebook feeds are cluttered with lists. We pick out five or six things we’re thankful for like family, friends, food, faith, etc. I’m not going to do that here. While I am thankful for my parents and my cat and my guitar and my favorite restaurant, today I want to reflect on something a little different.
Lately I’ve been working on loving myself and loving my own company, finding happiness in times of solitude. I went through a period where I lost my admiration for myself and so today, on Thanksgiving, I am thankful for me. I’m thankful for my strength to fight. I’m thankful for my individuality and my love for writing. I’m thankful that I know exactly who I am and I’m thankful that I love her. I am thankful that I am alive.
I pray that you never lose sight of yourself.
Happy Thanksgiving, friends.
I wrote this one quite some time ago, but since today is Twenty One Pilots titled poetry Saturday, it was time to revisit the filed away emotion. Find all my other TOP titled poems archived HERE and check back every week for a new one 🙂
