If you’re following this blog, you know I’m participating in the ‘30 Days of Truth‘ project I’ve seen on other blogs. It’s helping me commit to posting every single day, since I’m also taking part in The Daily Post project.
Day 07 → Someone who has made your life worth living for.
I have to confess – I’ve sort of been avoiding this post. Honestly, I don’t know how to respond to it. So, I guess I’ll just respond in my own way, not necessarily according to the title – these challenges are just a guide anyway, right? Right.
I don’t think anyone has ‘made my life worth living.’ If I required someone else’s presence to need a reason to live, what would be the point? I’m glad that I live, and for my life, even with all it’s MANY faults and shortcomings. I’m grateful to my spouse, the love of my life, who gets me even though she doesn’t get me, if that makes sense. I’m grateful to my true friends – the number may not be huge, but they know who they are and what they mean to me. And I’m grateful that I know what I mean to them.
I’m grateful to the teachers I come across – random strangers, friends, acquaintances, coworkers, and so on. I’m grateful to those people I learn from, and as long as I see another person during the day, I’m bound to learn something new about the world.
No one person has made my life worthy. No one person has made it any less worthy. The people I hold close in the dark hours are the people that enhance and enrich my life, and help make it all that it is.
Sorry, I hope this isn’t any less astounding than you might have been hoping for – under the assumption you seek anything profound in these posts.
I’m grateful to myself, for seeing what I’m worth, even in those moments when I don’t feel all that worthy. I make my life worth living for, and the people I love enrich it in various ways, adding something spectacular that I couldn’t dream up on my own.
