10 Things I'm Thankful For

This Thanksgiving I'm thankful for a place to call home that has warm beds and food on the shelves and the good health of myself and all my loved ones. Sometimes I get caught up in the "I wish I had" or "If I had this I would be happier" but reminding myself of said things above keeps me grounded.

Zooming into my life a little more, there are countless other things I am thankful for, and wanted to reflect on them.

1. Having the means to educate myself. This year more than ever I have taken the wheel on this and hand picked exactly what I wanted to educate myself in, whether it was through reading books, researching on the internet, or attending conferences.

2. Being able to creatively express myself. I am free to write, design, play music, dance, craft, and bake.

3. Youth. I have all the energy and optimism in the world and a big life ahead of me.

4. I am strong minded. Strong willed. Gutsy. Bold. Spirited. Confident. Dauntless. I am in control of myself and no one can take that away.

5. I wake up in the morning without having to worry for my safety.

6. Being able to be home with Mira

7. Humor, laughter, jokes. One of life's best medicine.

8. The availability of whole food and vitamins. Also, dessert. All the things that make my body happy.

9. Access. To healthcare, to clean water, to internet, to clean clothes.

10. The fact that there are people out there that love me. At the end of the day, this is really all that matters.
