I've been feeling pretty melancholy lately--I sort of feel like a stranger in my own life. I think a lot of that comes from the constant motion that I am in and the constant learning that my brain is working so hard to streamline and make use of. I don't feel that I have a definitive role in life--being a student will do that to you--and I really just want to know where I'll be and what I'll be doing (and to have that be consistent for more than a school year's length of time!).
I hate to say that I'm not feeling thankful today, but I guess I'm just still working on getting out of my rut and feeling happy. Maybe I shouldn't equate thankfulness with happiness, but when I'm not feeling happy, it's easy to forget what I'm thankful for. Of course as I sit here I know that I am thankful for many things and people, so don't think I'm here on my end of cyber-world feeling too depressed. It's been a down week--we all have them, and I'm not going to only write about the good things in life; that would be really annoying (and fake) of me!
So, let's cut to the chase. I'd appreciate it today if you told me what YOU are thankful for. I'm hoping your thankfulness will rub off on me in the hope that, as I start another week, this one goes a little better than the last.
