Everyday, I try to look back on the things that I am thankful. We lived in an extraordinary world and it’s easy to forget how blessed we truly are. Today, I’d like to take a moment to look back over the last year on what I am thankful for…
My health. I am able to run, enjoy yoga and continue to live an active, healthy lifestyle.
My family, which I was lucky enough to have add a new member earlier this year – Miss Audrey, my niece. They are an incredible support system, build me up when I’m feeling low, and always have a way of bringing happy tears. I’m blessed to have an amazing Memere, who I miss daily and has taught me many things in life.
Friends. Near and Far. When we get together it’s like a beat was never missed. Let’s talk about an incredible support system. Wow. Honesty, craziness, laughing until there’s tears and comfort. To new friends, connections and experiences. Forever thankful.
Opportunities. Where to start. An extremely large company purchased the use of a photo, shadowing and pursuing a photography “hobby”, trips to incredible places, randomly coming across beautiful places, doors open when you least expect them. Walk with one foot in front of the other, keep going no matter how difficult the road is. Keep going.
Music. Yes, you get your own category. I can never put into words what music does for me, nor the feeling of coming across musicians that completely blow me away. I’ve had the opportunity to attend many shows this year and it’s really helped to bring me to where I am. Nothing can replace the feeling.
My job, my car, my home. Never should these be overlooked, even if the job can be difficult at times. I am thankful.
Life events. Wow. 29 really surrounds you with life events. Marriages. Babies – my niece among many others who have brought a new beautiful life into this world and those who are on their way. We really are growing up folks.
Parts of the past twelve months have been pretty difficult. I know I’ve been pretty difficult. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your support, laughs, new friendships, honesty, experiences, opportunities and everything that goes with it. I will never be able to repay those who have been my constant support. I love you all from the very bottom of my heart.
Let’s all make a little toast, raise your glass to the trains that we’ve missed, the ones that we’ll make and to remember to be thankful for those around us daily. We never know when they may not be here. Don’t let moments pass.
What are you thankful for this season?
