negative stuff.....i thank you.

Here i am again....time to catch up on the Gratitude Challenge!!


Day 4: Write a short message of thanks for some of the negative things in your life. 

Um...okay? This might require some creativity...ha! Here we go...

Dear weight struggle,
Though we have continued to fight for most of my life, i am sorta kinda just a little extremely thankful for you. I have learned so many things in this journey that i likely wouldn't have learned any other way. I have found the importance of eating clean, I have broken bad habits & I have learned to enjoy the gym. If i'd never had a reason to learn those things, i probably wouldn't have. So thanks. And, also? I will win this!! :)
NOT yours truly,
Melissa

Dear fear, doubt & worry -
My youth pastor once taught me that FEAR stands for False Evidence Appearing Real. I never forgot that. Unfortunately, I don't think i'd know the peace & contentment that is found in Christ if it wasn't for you rearing your ugly head. So thank you for coming to my life. And thank you for leaving it. Because i know that i will have the things i am afraid of not having in God's time.
Good Riddance,
Melissa

Dear klutzyness,
Thank you for keeping me humble. But i mean...back off, already!
Thanks.
Mel

Ok, i'm not sure if that was EXACTLY what the creators of the Gratitude Challenge had in mind, but....yeah. That's all i got. ;) HA!

  1. I love the FEAR thing. I've never heard that. I don't know how people go through life without the peace God provides!
