It’s gratitude season for me. I have been recognizing all that I am blessed with and how, no matter how severe my depression and challenging motherless daughter journey gets, I have so.many.blessings. And what is wonderful about this realization is I am taking action. I’m not letting the realization just float by. I am calling family and telling them how much I love them, telling them what they mean to me. We so often get too busy and disconnected and assume our loved ones know how we feel about them. These are actions you take at the end of life or when you’ve been diagnosed with a fatal disease. But I’m choosing to do it now. If ever there was a time we need to touch base via phone calls, not texts, it’s right now.
So I challenge you to call at least one person and tell them how much you love them and what they mean to you. Trust, the good vibes run both ways.
