I’ve written on another blog about taking power away from yourself and giving it to some religious entity. In the real world, a person you should thank is yourself. Even if there is a God, you’re doing the real work. Thank yourself. Start appreciating yourself more. Stop reaching outside yourself to some figure in the sky and bring it back down here with you.
I am not anti-religious or anti-Christian. I am anti-beingthanklessforyourself. We forget all the power we hold inside ourselves because we give it away. We thank our parents for giving birth to us, we thank our boyfriends for being so supportive, our sisters for being so loving, etc. How about thanking yourself for doing what you need to do to live? For pushing through the obstacles and overcoming adversity to survive?
Look in the mirror some times and say to yourself, “Thank you for being so amazing.” It isn’t selfish or narcissistic to love yourself and take care of yourself. It’s what you have to do in order to survive in the world and help others. Without your health, you’re not able to take care of others.
Say thank you to you. You’re an incredible person. Stop hating on yourself. You’re made up of so much beauty. There’s only one person like you in this world, and you should feel liberated with it. Use it and show the world you are amazing, beautiful, and gifted. You’re the gift to this world, not the other way around. God didn’t do anything for you. You did everything for yourself.
Here I’ll start: “Thank you for being so damn beautiful, intelligent, and loving. Thank you for allowing me to see the inner strength and confidence you have for yourself. Thank you for being there, being you every day despite the odds. You’re strong, powerful, and exquisite. Stay strong. Thank you.”
