I want to begin posting more positivity things on this blog when possible, as I’m feeling much better and positive in my own life in recent weeks.  I hope you will enjoy this too and let me know below if you enjoy this content on my blog 🙂  Today I’d like to share a poem I wrote a while ago but which reminds me to be grateful for what I have in life, as well as life itself.  I hope you enjoy 🙂 ❤

Be Grateful

©The Strawberry Post

Be grateful for all you have,
For where you are in life,
Though sometimes you may struggle,
And feel it full of strife.

Be grateful for all you are,
For all that lies within,
Though sometimes you may struggle,
To raise a simple grin.

Be grateful for all you see,
For the world you live inside,
Though sometimes you may struggle,
And feel the urge to hide.

Be grateful for having life,
For being where you are,
Though sometimes you may struggle,
And feel yourself afar.

Be grateful for every day,
Be it good or bad,
Though sometimes you may struggle,
To overcome the sad.

Be grateful you are here,
Moreso when things are hard,
Though sometimes you may struggle,
Feel youself left scarred.

Feel gratitude every moment,
While life may take its toll,
Though sometimes it takes struggle,
To show beauty of your soul.
