The Gift Of Being

The gift of being…….human. I love to people watch. Lately I have not liked  what I have been seeing and experiencing. Last month I had a college student tell me “I am not like that.” She then proceeded to act like that type of human being. I was basically kicked to the curb to fend for myself. I never knew that I was being watched in the class until I received an email from my professor. Another student wanted my class notes because he had missed a class. I did not hesitate with sharing my notes because…..I am human. The gift of being has taught me that people will be who they want to be. I have no right to impose on their personal space. I can only be the best that I can be. My flaws are like excess baggage that carry a ton of stuff. I have had issues of being less than human. The gift of being human is like a treasure yet to be discovered. Recovery is one of the greatest gifts that life has to offer you. Take it. Hold it. Cherish it. You hold the gift of being……..human.
