Finding gratitude in the middle of a shit storm is my super power

Good Morning world!

When life gets tough your going to need some tools to survive or you just might lose yourself in the midst of the madness.

As most of you already know I’m in the middle of my biggest life change ever, getting a divorce after being married to the same man for 17 years.

While at first it seemed really scary and absolutely impossible, now it’s exhilarating and it’s freeing. (This changes daily or maybe hourly)

But that’s only because I’ve worked my gratitude muscle so much that it’s one of my superpowers now.

I’ll let you guys in on a little secret………. Your supposed to be the hero of your own life.

There’s no one coming to save you or to fix you or to do the work for you. Your gonna have to get real with you, because your the one that’s responsible for you.

Gratitude is the gas that fills me up and gets me through, and it’s what makes me feel loved.

It wasn’t a muscle I’ve always had so I worked really really hard to make it stronger.

Want to know what keeps me going right now?

It’s the way that I see things and the way that I feel things.

I could be so sad and so angry that I miss out on the numerous blessing that surround me every single day and then where would I be?

More sad

More angry

More victim mode

More depressed

More anxiety

More drama for your momma

No freaking thank you πŸ™

I’m surrounded by love in the midst of the storm β˜”οΈ and it’s these very relationships that see me through.

If I’m having a bad day I will always receive a message from an amazing soul that chooses to show me how much they care.

Sometimes it’s the most random people that you don’t even know care about you, but they do. And when they are brave enough to tell you it will fill your heart up like no other.

Sometimes it’s a text from a friend in the middle of the day letting you know that they love you

Sometimes it’s a big fat hug

Sometimes it’s a letter in the mail

Sometimes it’s a parking place front row

Sometimes it’s gift left for you at work

Sometimes it’s a friend who listens

Sometimes it’s a long talk with your kids

Sometimes its crying with a friend

Sometimes it’s dinner someone else paid for

Sometimes it’s just a look and a smile and it lets you know they care

God is providing for me because I decided to take action and change my life.

I was brave enough to do things his way instead of my way.

I became my own hero.

I learned to love myself and change my life and so can you!

If you see someone having a hard time reach out and let them know you care, your message could be exactly that their heart needed today.

If you get a feeling about anything in your gut then listen to it. Don’t let your silly fears talk you out of it.

Thanks for reading my blog and supporting my dreams even in the middle of the storm

I appreciate you #gratitude


God Bless

  1. Awesome Tavia; we can pick ourselves up during tough times. The key is to feel whatever feelings are there; sadness, grief, etc… not bury ’em and they move along. Then, greater happiness is all that remains.

    1. Ryan you are exactly right πŸ’œ in the past I’ve pushed my feelings away instead of learning to process them πŸ’œ now I know they are here for a reason and they won’t last forever! Thanks for reading my friend
