Quote of the Day: "Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it." - William Arthur Ward
This weird thing happens to me when it comes to gratitude.
Sometimes it just feeling like I'm bragging or being cocky.
I have had this problem when I get concerned about what others might think.
Which is absolutely silly when it boils down right?
Because what other people think of me is none of my business.
But with years of social conditioning we don't want to look too good and we don't want to look too bad.
We want so badly to fit in. To not break the mold so to speak.
But you know what? Fuck it. I'm not trying to be average.
But the difference is I'm not trying to be better or worse than anyone else.
I'm trying to be better than the "Me" that somewhere along the line I was told I was.
I'm not trying to fit into any mold. I'm trying to make waves. I am not a tree. I can move in any direction I want.
But I will always remember my roots. Where I came from. And I will never go back there.
