Hi, I'm Kate.
I either like people too much or really not at all.
Comment me here.
"I think that the number one cause of pain on a humans heart is lack of gratitude. I know that sounds odd and a bit far fetched, but hear me out for a second. Most things in our lives come and go. A lot like a wave that stretches with the tide; we move, we make friends, we lose lovers, we pass through wonderful moments. For most of us we associate loss as a sad and horrible thing. Once something we love is slipped through our fingers we can't help but feel the empty hole in our lives where it once stood. Even when it's all said and done and we have finally moved on from whatever we have lost that was so beautiful, we still feel it. But I have learned the truth, a small and beautiful truth that has made my heart rejoice in even the most disheartening of times. The truth, that if we are sincerely grateful for the things we love most in this life...when we lose them, we can still function because we are simply grateful that we had them at all. It no longer becomes a question of why they had to go, it no longer becomes a fight to try and get them back.. Instead it's a warm comfort, because those memories that you have, you will never have to give away. You see, gratitude saves a broken heart. Appreciate what you have because then, when or if you ever lose it..you will be content knowing that you were able to share the times with it that you did. And when you look back on your life, and your hands drape across the fills and memories in your skin you will stop..... and smile."
