Today I am thankful for reassurance. I am not sure about you, but there are moments when, despite having a strong sense of certainty that I am on the right path, with the right people, in the right place, doing the right thing, I occasionally become temporarily uncertain, or I allow the challenging circumstances of various situations to overwhelm me and cause me to temporarily avert my eyes away from whatever I am supposed to be focusing on. And in moments like those, it helps to have reassurance from those whom I know truly care for me and have my best interest at heart.
Let’s face it, we all have moments when we grow weary of pressing on through various circumstances, especially when those circumstances are not favorable and leave us with the sensation of endlessly fighting against a current that appears to be getting stronger and stronger by the minute. Receiving even the smallest amount of reassurance in times like those can mean the difference between giving up and taking those next leaps toward the finish line. Sometimes, that is all that it takes.
I am blessed to have wonderful people in my life who are so in tune with me that not only do they know when I need reassurance, but they also know the exact way in which I need it. And they take it a step further and actually provide me with the reassurance that I need, even when I was not even aware of the fact that I needed it. And, yes, there are times when my loved ones are either not available, or it is simply a moment in which I need to reassure myself, and, thankfully, for the most part, I am able to give myself the reassurance that I need, despite the presence of any feelings of doubt or uncertainty. And it was not until this very moment that I realized the depth to which my appreciation for reassurance runs. It’s funny how life can be like that sometimes. #lovebythedrop
