This is a little different to my usual blog posts, but I actually think it is the most important I’ve written so far.

It won’t be as long and as wordy as usual, but is more potent than most I write.

This specific blog post is really simple yet so meaningful.

It was inspired by this song and these words.

This is to you…..

“Thank You”

If I’ve ever put you through hell
Only called when I needed help
If I’ve only thought of myself
Couldn’t find the words to say what I felt
If I’ve ever lied to your face
Shut you out to keep you away
You’d always give and I’d always take
Yes, it took some time for me to say

Thank you, thank you
For seeing the best and the worst of me
The angel underneath
Thank you

When I had trouble finding my way
You showed me I am not my mistakes, no
And that dreams are meant to be lived, not to be chased
And our hearts get stronger after they break

So thank you, thank you
For seeing the best and the worst of me
The angel underneath
Thank you

Cause I wouldn’t be here without you
How could I ever doubt you
Slamming doors didn’t stop you
Oh, you made me face up to
I wouldn’t be here without you
How could I ever doubt you
I was running wild, a reckless child
I’m sorry if I let you down
If I ever put you through hell
Only called when I needed help
Yes, it took some time for me to see

Thank you, thank you
For seeing the best and the worst of me
The angel underneath
Thank you
Thank you, thank, thank you
Thank you, thank you

To all of you who have ever written a note of support.

For all of you who have forgiven me for my imperfections and failings.

To those who allow me to show up as I am and for you, that is enough.

To those who have supported my journey of self discovery, who have been cheerleaders of my sometimes crazy and costly ideas.

Mostly, thank you to my husband who has seen “the best and the worst of me and the angel underneath”.

It has been a rough and painful journey at times, but absolutely completely worth it.

Sorry to the people who may have been hit by the debris as my shell cracked.

Sorry to those who have been hurt by my humanness and blindness.

Thank you to anyone who has ever come along to a workshop, a retreat a talk, an adventure with me.

Thank you for the support.

Thank you for the uncertainty.

Thank you for using your life to make a difference in mine.

Thank you for holding space for me to grow.

Thanks for the laughs.

Thank you for trusting me with your story.

Thank you!

Thank you!

THANK YOU!

Jen
