So in order to try and practice self love daily, I made up some journal prompts for myself based off what I felt I needed to reflect on and a little help from google lol. One of these prompts being, “What am I grateful for?” Expressing gratitude is imperative on a self love journey because it helps you see the brighter side of things. I tried re wording that sentence a bunch of times but honestly, that’s the best way I can put it. When we’re constantly talking negatively to ourselves we leave no room for gratitude, only room for pity. I like to call it victimizing yourself. Stop unnecessarily making yourself a victim. You aren’t your trauma.

This morning was a horrible one trying to get through to the unemployment office. I was never able to but I sort of found a solution. Anyways I chose one of my easier reflections because I have to write out content for my blog after this and I don’t want to overwhelm myself.
What am I grateful for?
I said that I chose this reflection because it was easy. But it’s not a coincidence that I’m sitting and writing about what I’m grateful for after whole woe is me tantrum I threw on Twitter this morning. I was complaining about not being able to get in contact with unemployment thus absolutely no income. But nonetheless there are people out there right now who are in much more dire circumstances than I am right now.
I am grateful for for my health. I am grateful for my bed. I am grateful that despite money I still have all the tools I need to create content, grateful for the friends I still have despite my many disappearances, and grateful that I still have food to eat.
There’s definitely more but that’s everything that I could think of off the top of my head and that’s ok.
