What Are You Grateful For?
Today I want to show some gratitude for all the people and life experiences that have helped me grow into the person I am today.
First off, as a mommy, I am so grateful for my parents and all the parents that have shown me that we're not all perfect (hell, none of us are when it comes to parenting), but we learn from our mistakes. I have realized through certain people and experiences that it is okay to make mistakes, learn from them. As long as your kids are happy, healthy and getting what they need, that is what is most important.
Next, as a single woman/mom, I am grateful for past relationships. If nothing else you have all shown me what I don't want, and a little of what I do want. We can learn so much from past relationships... if we want to. You all have also shown me that being alone is okay too. While it may not be what I ultimately want, it is OKAY!
For my kids, I am grateful for their dad. That was hard to type... Just sayin'. Regardless of my personal relationship with him, or any past incidents between the 2 of us, he is still a great dad to them. While we may not always agree on parenting styles or the like, our kids are AMAZING. And that is because of the both of us.
As a blogger, I am super duper grateful for all of you that read my crazy ramblings. You truly are awesome. Blogging is my outlet and my safe place. I know it looks weird saying this as this blog is new, but for those of you that read my old blog, you will know that I have been around for a while. Over 15,000 page views, over 200 posts, and over 140 followers. Not too shabby if I do say so myself. My goal is to do even better with this one, and you can all help out. Share the Monkey love all, share it!
Last but not least for today, I am grateful for all of my family and friends who support me in more ways than they will ever know. You are all my rock. No matter where I go, I will always take you with me. I love you all to pieces.
Now, I want to hear what you are all grateful for today. Please share in the comments section.
Love you Monkey Manics!
