21 days of gratitude
First day is: Choose an experience from your life that was initially unpleasant and unwanted. Try now to focus on the positive aspects or consequences of this difficult experience:
So back in 2009, when I was a junior in HS, I had a huge meltdown and OD’d on some pills. This led to a horrible environment at home, since my parents didn’t trust me anymore and everything was awful.
I then went to boarding school, where I made a few life-long friends, and I also feel like I learned to be more mindful about my actions and their consequences.
Now I have a much stronger relationship with my family, especially my mother, and since I regained their trust, I feel like it’s stronger than ever.
I’m grateful for that
