I am thankful for this amazing life. For a giving, faithful God who has so far blessed me with 7,143 new mornings to live. For clothes on my back, food in my stomach, and the comfort if a roof over my head and blankets wrapping me each night. To my unconditionally loving, providing and supportive family. For an exceptionally extraordinary love, with an amazing individual who makes me better. For each person that The Lord has hand-made, and placed into my life; even strangers who share smiles for a split-second. And I am thankful for the person I have become. No longer am I the girl in my past. No longer suicidal. I am alive. No longer drunk, high, or drugged out. I am sober. No longer depressed, hating the world. I am happy. No longer looking down, but up to The Lord and straight ahead of whatever He holds for me. “I will wash my hands in innocence, and go about Your altar, O Lord, that I may make the voice of Thanksgiving heard and may tell all of Your wondrous works.” (Psalm 26:6-7) Happy Thanksgiving everyone! 💕

I think it’s unconditional love when you still love them every day, just as much as you did since day one… No matter how much pain they’ve put you through.
"No you fool!! You could fall!!"

Every single word of this.
It takes a MONUMENTAL effort every single day not to let myself give in to these habits and I am still working hard on it. Everything about this photoset is accurate to my internal monologue, including the spectatoring. It’s so so hard to actually let myself enjoy anything (let alone sex) because I’m constantly worried about how I’m positioned and how my clothes look on my body. It stinks.
I didn’t care or think about myself in that way until after I was in a relationship with someone who treated me like a sexual object for the four years we were together. I’m glad to see this because I’ve been doing all this and I know it’s bullshit but it’s like I can’t help it…it helps to know that not alone in it I guess.
During a robbery, the bank robber shouted to everyone in the bank: “Don’t move. The money belongs to the State. Your life belongs to you.”
Everyone in the bank laid down quietly. This is called “Mind Changing Concept” Changing the conventional way of thinking.
When a lady lay on the table provocatively, the robber shouted at her: “Please be civilized! This is a robbery and not a rape!”
This is called “Being Professional” Focus only on what you are trained to do!
When the bank robbers returned home, the younger robber (MBA-trained) told the older robber (who has only completed Year 6 in primary school): “Big brother, let’s count how much we got.”
The older robber rebutted and said: “You are very stupid. There is so much money it will take us a long time to count. Tonight, the TV news will tell us how much we robbed from the bank!”
This is called “Experience.” Nowadays, experience is more important than paper qualifications!
After the robbers had left, the bank manager told the bank supervisor to call the police quickly. But the supervisor said to him: “Wait! Let us take out $10 million from the bank for ourselves and add it to the $70 million that we have previously embezzled from the bank”.
This is called “Swim with the tide.” Converting an unfavorable situation to your advantage!
The supervisor says: “It will be good if there is a robbery every month.”
This is called “Killing Boredom.” Personal Happiness is more important than your job.
The next day, the TV news reported that $100 million was taken from the bank. The robbers counted and counted and counted, but they could only count $20 million. The robbers were very angry and complained: “We risked our lives and only took $20 million. The bank manager took $80 million with a snap of his fingers. It looks like it is better to be educated than to be a thief!”
This is called “Knowledge is worth as much as gold!”
The bank manager was smiling and happy because his losses in the share market are now covered by this robbery.
This is called “Seizing the opportunity.” Daring to take risks!
So who are the real robbers here?
