Kalli's Story - My way of living

Here is an inspirational story of gratitude from Kalli.

So I used to not be grateful for anything. I grew up in a family that did not love or want me and I found it hard to connect with God.

Every day was a struggle for my young self, but instead of growing up listening to my family that I wasn't worth anything, I told myself every day that I was my Daddy's little princess, he just didn't know it yet.

As I got older I got tired of waiting to hear this from my dad and I actually taught myself that happiness doesn't come from others, it comes from my own willingness to love myself.

From that day forward I told myself, that no matter how mean my family got, I was the best damn thing this world has ever seen. No one was like me. I was unique.

I wanted to start practicing gratitude because I started to fall back into a pattern of self-loathing and depression. I thought why can't I have what that little girl at the store has with her family?

I decided it was time for me to take one day at a time and start loving myself again. After writing my affirmations out daily I realize that I am still "the best damn thing in this world".

I found the Gratitude app in the Google Play Store and thought I'm going to give it a shot. What's the worst that could happen with a gratitude app? You want to know the answer? I figured out my character defects.

I use this app every day. I swear by it as I swear by the Bible. This app has really changed my perspective on how I look at myself today and how I look at others.

I know now today that everyone is the best thing that could've ever happened to this world. Thank you for letting me share!
