These past couple of years, I realized how I did not give my self the credit I deserve. Other people had higher regard for me than I did for myself.

I did not know how to pat myself on the back, for a job well done, for an accomplishment. It’s as if I was embarassed of my accomplishments, as if I did not earn all these, and as if I didn’t deserve all these. 

I’m catching up now, being thankful for small things and big things. I have a “happy yey clap” and I carry with me a gratitude rock. All these to assure myself that I deserve and caused everything that I have, all that has happened in my life. 

As part of catching up with my self and my self-esteem, I am celebrating 42 things I am thankful for in my life. These are the gifts, blessings that I now receive graciously in my life, that I value in my life!
