the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.
Sometimes I forget what goes on until I read back over these daily highlights and remember all the little things that made me smile. I took a few big steps this month, I did things that were really brave and I feel like I’m getting back to normal. When I say normal I mean the Chanelle who feels in control and thinks about her needs and wants. There are times I have felt pushed around and I no longer want that, badass Chanelle is coming out!
Here’s what made me smile in May:
