Feeling Gratitude

©Tracy J. Thomas, 2012. All rights reserved.

Although my life is currently the busiest it has been in a while I am feeling incredibly grateful. Grateful that I am able to wake up every single day and create art for a living. Trusting life enough to cast all other expectations aside and take that step off the precipice with faith was not easy. But doing so has brought me such a full and satisfied heart filled with great peace. Finally, I know my purpose in life.

My days are now ruled by writing and photography and creating. All the things my soul has longed to do since my childhood. I am finally free enough inside myself to bring this life to fruition. It is through these very gifts that I have been given that I was able to free the chains that bound me for so long.

Today I am grateful, as I am every day. Grateful for the gifts, grateful for the opportunities, grateful for the people in my life who have always cheered me on through the good and through the bad. Grateful for the chance to wake up every morning and breathe in a new day. Grateful for nature and all of its beauty. Grateful for the knowledge that through my words or one single photograph, I may make a difference in someone’s life. And that is all that really matters.

I wish each one of you a Happy Thanksgiving and hope you will carry a sense of gratitude with you beyond Thanksgiving day and into every day you receive the opportunity to open your eyes to a new dawn.
