Emotional Baggage

Someone's (mine) thankfulness has no limits, let me explain you why. Yesterday I wrote a note on Facebook titled "I'm a Loser, Baby" - my thoughts on my weird love patterns. The analysis inspired yesterday's thankful post too. And today, after leaving a comment that made a whole lot of sense to me, Graham, my amazing blogger buddy, is my hero! His remark inspired my status update on FB, which in turn, inspired a very meaningful conversation with my girl pals Deb and Sarah. Right now I am so elevated, so encouraged and so thankful! I am thankful to Graham for always being very on point with his comments and bringing a fresh attitude; I am thankful to Debby for putting in so much into our today's conversation and taking the time to make me feel cared for; I am thankful to Sarah for never judging me and always cheering me up; and last, but not least, I am thankful for having all the emotional baggage that I have - without it I'd never be who I am today, and I'm kind of very fond of this person! THANK YOU!

  13. I feel very honored to be mentioned by name in your post, Julia. Wow. I feel the same way about your comments: always incisive and insightful, honest and fresh :) You give me better insights on things than my own local friends, and we've never met! How funny is that?

    Now I'm really curious what your FB message was.
