LIFE || thankful.

It's a good thing to reflect and see how many reasons there are to be thankful. I've been doing that a lot lately. Maybe because it's because of the approaching holiday season or maybe it's something else--I don't really know. What I do know is I have lots of reasons to be thankful right now, at this time in my life.

  • I am thankful that I am here at this time. I feel like this is a time for me to learn and grow.
  • I am thankful for a wonderful family.
  • I am thankful for a mother who raised us, kept us safe, taught us well, covered us with love, made us her priorities, and even spoiled us a bit.
  • I am thankful for my friends, near and far, who still talk to me even with my problems and lapses in communication.
  • I'm thankful for my sisters. We're growing closer everyday and I love it.
  • I'm thankful that I have my own place and can get the things I need.
  • I'm thankful to be able to be an artist.
  • I'm thankful that I had an opportunity to go to college and grad school.
  • I am thankful that there is love, of all kinds, in my life.
  • I am thankful that I am not where I was emotionally or mentally six months ago.
  • I am thankful that I started caring about me.
  • I am thankful for the tough lessons. They are not always pretty or packaged neatly, but at least I'm learning.
  • I am thankful for realization. When you open your eyes you can't close them to hide mess anymore.
