Day 13 - 30 Days of Gratitude Challenge: What Challenge or Obstacle Are You Grateful For?


Thank you to everyone who read yesterday’s entry. Your support means so much to me and I’m glad it means something to you! As long as I help one person, that really is enough for me! This 30 day gratitude is to show you that even through your hardest moments, you can see the positive side.

Today’s journal prompt is: What challenge or obstacle are you grateful for?

I’ll keep todays entry short, since yesterdays was quite lengthy!

  • When I used to work at the bank I was working as a full time lender in the home loans department. The job was stressful and it came to a point that I didn’t want to get out of bed everyday. So I asked to be demoted back to my old job as a customer service representative. This meant that I had to work part time. I lost a lot of self confidence. But if I didn’t ask to go back to my old role, I never would’ve been in the job I’m in now. I had time to myself to really focus on what I wanted to do with my career since I wasn’t working full time at that point. Today I get to write content for my clients and this is something I really enjoy. I’m grateful for the challenges I faced at the bank because it set me up for what I was suppose to do.

  • My first relationship. I was feeling quite unhappy towards the end and it had nothing to do with my boyfriend at the time. I just felt the things I wanted to do, I couldn’t do in a long-term relationship. For my own personal reasons, which I don’t need to justify, I decided to leave the relationship. It was so hard at the time because we’d already been together for four years but I’m so grateful for those years we had together. If I never met my boyfriend in uni, I never would’ve travelled to South America, or even known what being with a partner was like. If I didn’t decide to leave the relationship, than basically everything else that happened after that time would’ve never happened. I probably wouldn’t be here writing this entry today. I’ll always be thankful for him and I don’t have any regrets. This was a big challenge for me because I was scared of the unknown.
