I am grateful for the greater capacity for compassion and empathy that I’ve developed over the years. I feel better, more happy and free, because I am not chained to resentments and judgement the way I once was when I was younger.
I am grateful for the compassion and empathy that I receive from others. We all make mistakes and we all need a little leeway from time to time.
I am grateful too for the teachers in my life. Two from high school in particular come to mind academically, but I am also grateful for those who have taught me life lessons along the way. We all need good mentors so that we can reach our full potential.
