poem ~ I say Thank You

I say Thank You
for my challenges,
For in them I find
the strength and ability
I wouldn't have known did reside.

I say Thank You
for the heartache,
For in it I find
the depths of compassion
And understanding each time.

I say Thank You
for the waves of perfection, 
For in it I find
and see life is about balance
So truly divine.

I say Thank You
for all the rejection,
For this won't define
the status of my life
Or the dimensions I climb.

I say Thank You
for all my fears,
For in them I find,
more courage to fight
For this unique dream of mine.

I say Thank You 
for all of my flaws,
For in them I see 
the truth and vulnerability so raw
That abounds yet it completes me.

I say Thank You 
for my insecurities,
For they help me to be
more accepting and loving
Of this person I can grow to be.

I say Thank You 
for all the pain in my life,
For through it I find
I have a choice
To overcome all of this strife.

I say Thank You 
for all the misunderstandings,
For in them I find
a chance for connection
And a new perspective to find.

I say Thank You 
for the vast darkness,
For in it I look
knowing that this 
Is when light shines the brightest.

I say Thank You 
for another layer of growth,
For in it I find
that life will expand
When gratitude is the method of focus.

I say Thank You 
for I don't just have to cope,
For in it I know
the path to more
Of an abundant life isn't beyond hope.

I say Thank You 
for everything in my life,
For in it I find
all of it has a reason
And a meaningful purpose.
