Past Contributions

My goal for this site is and has always been to provide a space for positive thought. With the advent of FML, I realized, while everyone’s stories are funny, they aren’t exactly constructive. In my short time I’ve found that positive thought results in positive living. Please contribute when the feeling strikes you! Here are a few past contributions:

I am thankful for so many things — Mostly for God providing a way out of no way, shining light on areas that seem so dark, and keeping me safe even when I didn’t have the mental, physical or emotional capacity to do it for myself. I am thankful for being loved by others and being able to give love to others. I am grateful for the smiles that spread across the faces of the people I love when they are happy. Their happiness is for all of us to share. I am thankful for the lessons I have learned and the people who have taught me. I am thankful for the continuing opportunity to be stretched to new heights, depths and widths. Some learning is easy, some not so easy. It is often in our greatest moments of discomfort, embarrassment, and frustration that we learn the great lesson of humility. So, for those too, I am thankful. I am thankful for our leaders — all of them — who have decided to be the face of bravery and courage.

And, finally, I am thankful for God’s grace on my life — It is because I have been forgiven so many times that I have learned to extend that same forgiveness and grace and love to others.

I am thankful for a lot of things. I have had some bad events happen in the last couple of years. Regardless of the outcome of those events, I am very thankful for my family and friends who have supported me through my grief and have continued to show me that there still can be things to look forward to in life. I have tried to keep my head held high through it all and when I have fallen, my friends and family have been there to help me back up. No one should go through life feeling alone, and I know for sure, I am not alone. 
No one can ever know when our last moments will be for sure, so I think everyone should be thankful for the moments with the ones they love and make sure every moment is lived to the fullest. Thank you to my Super 7 and family! You are all family to me and I couldn’t stand tall with out you all!

When I think about my life, past, present, and future I always am deep in thought because of what has happened to me in my life and because I have no idea where I am going to end up. My past has really contributed to who I am and where I am today. Sometimes I dwell on the past, and its at those moments where I do the most reflection. There are so many people struggling and suffering from famine, being impoverished, and that have no parents to call or go home to. So I have to be thankful for my life… GOD puts us through obstacles because he knows that we are stronger than we think ourselves to be. Remember the saying… GOD will never give you more than you can handle…. and that’s a true statement. So as i wonder where I am going to be 10 years for now… I just hope that my life is set to where I can help people have the same opportunities that I did to be the best that I could/can possibly be. As for now, I am truly blessed to be living my life..

Honestly, I am thankful for life. I recently went to visit my uncle in LA who is passing from cancer. After interacting with someone who is at the end of their life, I found myself reflecting on my own life. Suddenly, the situations that I’d considered problems seemed so insignificant. I may sometimes struggle, but I’m here! I woke up this morning, some people did not. I’m breathing, I’m healthy, I am loved. I am truly blessed!
