Gratitude Challenge Day 4

“Write a short message of thanks for some of the “negative” things in your life.”
I’m thankful for my dad’s type A aggressive personality. I didn’t like it much when I was growing up that he was loud and controlling (he was never violent, just loud), but it made me learn to listen to people’s words and intent despite the way they are saying something. It makes it easier to hear what my kids are trying to say when they’re getting emotional, and it makes it easier to deal with prisoners (I work in a prison library) because I know how to respond to their words and leave emotion out of it when necessary.
