Things I’m Thankful For This Year

Hello all!! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your kin. As I sit here at work, I just want to share with you all what I’m grateful for, because after midnight I’m singing nothing but Christmas carols lol.

This year, I’m grateful for my life. I’m thankful for the life of the people I hold near to my heart as well as the life of someone I’m missing dearly right now, my nana (grandmother). I didn’t think about how sad the holidays were gonna be this year without her until a week before today. I’m thankful for the years I was able to spend with her and that she is watching over me still from Heaven.

Another thing I’m grateful for this year is love. Not love in the romantic sense, but the growing love I have for myself in the present and who I want to be in the future. Despite feeling discouraged in more ways than one, I loved myself enough to not give up and keep going as well as loving myself enough to be real with myself on some things. I’m also grateful for the love people in my life who have shown me. My 26th birthday just passed and I would not have made it if it weren’t for my dope support system.

Lastly, I’m thankful for being awkward and dope at the same time. I used to be afraid to take up space and thought my “extra-ness” was bad. I’ve now come to realize that it’s not. Nothing about me is normal or will ever be normal. I wasn’t made to be normal, I was made to be me. That’s who I’ll choose to be for the rest of my life.

Ok, now that I’ve gotten that off my heart, Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! Enjoy your friends and family and put some mac and cheese to the side for me. What are you grateful for this year? Leave a comment. *hugs* Love you guys!
