Halfway through 30 Days of Tessism, gratitude can be found in a writer’s necessity.
Gratitude: Today I am grateful for having what Virginia Woolf described as “A Room of One’s Own” to contemplate and write. I remain ever thankful that I was born into this time and can experience so much that women before me could not.
In my literal room, I can plot and worry without interruption or explanation. In my figurative space, I can delve into my mind and express myself in any way I choose. Today’s gratitude is simple and quiet, the very way I like that “room”. I have room to be. I have choice and freedom of expression. Anything held back or put forth results from options I have thanks to those before me who paved and fought for a way. For that, I am grateful.
