Since today is Thanksgiving, I wanted to take some time to slow down and reflect on the things I’m thankful for. This is something I haven’t taken the time to do since grade school (I’m kind of ashamed to say that actually). Honestly, I never focus enough on the things that I’m thankful for. IT’s far too easy to focus on the negative things in life. Well, this year, I’m determined to focus on the good things in my life.
So here it is, a list of just a few things I’m very, very thankful for.
My little family
I know, this one was pretty predictable. but what can I say, I love my family 🙂
Obviously, I’m incredibly thankful for my partner Tyler, and our son, Walter. The two of you have healed me in ways you’ll probably never understand. I know I don’t say it nearly enough, but I love you, and I’m so unbelievably thankful for the two of you.
My work family
I’m so blessed to be able to work with so many incredibly strong woman. I’m thankful to have you ladies as my co-workers and I’m even more thankful to be able to call you my friends.
My mother and my mother-in-law
Mommy, I don’t think words can express how thankful I am for you. You’re my confidant, my therapist, and my best friend. I love you more than you’ll ever know. I’m so grateful you’re a part of my life.
Laurie, thank you for welcoming me into not only your home but also your family. I know I’m not the best at showing it, but I love you so much, and I appreciate everything you’ve done for me.
You’re the strongest person I know. You don’t always see that, but I see it and I’m so thankful that I have someone like you to learn from.
Ending toxic relationships
I’m not going into too much detail because it’s still a holiday, and people are supposed to be happy on holidays 🙂
I’m thankful I learned my self worth, and finally chose my emotional well being over family. I’ll leave it at that.
I hope you all spend today surrounded by positivity and love. Eat lots of good food, and make sure you take a second to be thankful.
