Hi from California friends! I just wanted to put a little Thanksgiving message on this blog. I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday or if you are abroad and not celebrating having a great day just the same! It’s kind of cool when you think about it that as Americans we have decided to dedicate an entire day to the virtue of gratitude. We don’t do that for other virtues such as fidelity, trust, honor, etc but we set aside a whole day to think about all the things we have to be grateful for.
I for one have much to be grateful for. I made this video for youtube where I talk a little bit about Thanksgiving in the Thanksgiving Tag.
Mostly I am thankful for the life I have. I know that sounds cheesy but it is true. My life is far from perfect but I think it is pretty great. I am so thankful for my job. I love being able to work from home and not have to be stuck in a cubicle all day. I love being able to go outside and listen to music and not have a boss looming over me everyday. It’s a pretty great gig.
I also love my current employment. After working in accounting for a decade it has been so wonderful doing something creative each day. I also love the challenge of learning to work in marketing. Each day I do something different and new. How many jobs can say that? Certainly not accounting! That’s for sure!
I am also thankful for my home. I never thought I would be a home owner but I’ve now been one for 3 years. I love my house and still feel it is the most Me place in the world.
I am thankful for my roommate of 3 years named Regan and for her putting up with me!
I am thankful for my blogging and youtube channel. It has been such a positive experience and helped me interact with some amazing individuals. I seriously love you guys more than I could have imagined.
I am thankful for my faith and that no matter what is thrown at me it stays strong. I see people wilt and lose their faith and it makes me so grateful I have been able to remain steadfast.
I am thankful for great literature, art, music, dance and movies. I am thankful a new Star Wars movie is coming out! I am thankful for Disney and Pixar and all the artists/authors who dare to put something out to the world for all of us to enjoy/judge.
I am thankful for my friends and family and all the love and support they show me.
I am thankful for open water swimming and all my swim friends.
I am just thankful to be me and to be alive and living this strange life of mine. Thank you all for being a part of it.
Now on to Christmas!
