It’s Thanksgiving day and although I’m thankful every day. These last few months haven’t been how I thought it would’ve been and I found myself complaining or being ungrateful and that’s not something I was pleased with. It’s a good thing whenever we can sit and reflect and see where we were and where we are now. I find myself coming from a place of gratitude in recent times. While I can sit and talk about the many things I’m thankful for I came up with 5 things I find myself really thankful for these days.
This might sound cliche but believe it or not many of us go through life and not realize how blessed we are and how much we need to be thankful for the life we have. I know it’s easy to feel like life is just passing you by but really and truly I’ve learned that life is what we make it. This year I’ve seen my growth and although I have more growing to do I’m really thankful for the woman I’m slowly becoming. I have learned a lot about myself and not to sound narcissistic but I learned that I’m a pretty dope person; I have my flaws but I’m thankful that I’m able to recognize them and work on being an even better person.
Family and Friends
I am beyond thankful for my family and friends. I am blessed to have such a loving and supportive family; what else can I really ask for? I’m thankful to the people who I can really call my friend cause if this year has taught me anything when it comes to friendships is that not every friendship will last. That’s not a bad thing, it simply means as I evolve, some people just don’t serve any purpose in my life; so I’m thankful and blessed to be surrounded by incredible people.
I am thankful for my health. There was a time when it seemed like my health was going to get the best of me, BUT GOD! So today I’m extremely thankful for my well-being.
This year I took a leap of faith and embarked on a new journey to pursue a degree in Public Health. I absolutely have never been this happy about a decision I’ve ever made. I’m thankful that I have the opportunity to even attend school and to even have the option to pursue another degree because I know many who don’t have such privilege. I’m passionate about being an avid healthcare advocate. I’m really excited for this new chapter and the future is indeed looking bright.
Last but not least, YOU GUYS! I started this blog a year and a half ago not having a clue what I was doing and it truly warms my heart every time I get some form of support. Whether it’s through sharing, liking or commenting it doesn’t go unnoticed and for that I’m thankful for all of you. It’s really just the little things. I couldn’t do it without your support.
