9. How Did You Do and How Did You Feel
So last week the challenge was to give thanks to three people and this week is the follow up to that. I think I did an alright job at expressing my gratitude to three people in my life. I'm not the most upfront person nor am I emotional so I had a fear going into the challenge that the three people I was expressing gratitude toward would just laugh me off with something along the lines of, "haha okay Kate, thanks" but I was pleasantly surprised that they didn't.
In regards to how I felt, I think the best word to describe it would be relief. Once I got it off my chest just how grateful I am to have them in my life it felt like I didn't have anything to hide anymore. I spend a lot of time masking my emotions that anytime I'm vulnerable I get quite scared. Letting people know how I feel actually allowed me to feel lighter, if you will. I really recommend telling people around you how grateful you are for them. It's like releasing yourself from a secret in the best way possible.
Thanks for reading, xo, Katelyn
