Thanksgiving…A Day for “Giving Thanks” for all we are given to be truly thankful for. This special day is set aside once a year for us to make sure that we take some time to really remember all that we have to be thankful for even if we try to do it throughout the year. This one day where we spend time with those we love and reach out to those we aren’t able to physically be with.
I want to take a moment to acknowledge the things I am thankful for:
- My family and friends are first: I have surrounded myself with some amazing people. Some have been with me for my entire life and some only a short time but I feel as though I have known them forever. We choose the people we involve ourselves with. If you have people in your life the bring you down and carry only negativity with them you need to look at yourself and wonder what is the positive things about these people that keeps you keeping in touch with them. There must be a reason you choose to continue to have these people have a hold on you. Maybe it is that you are there to show them that there are good things in the world and they need to find their positives. You may also not be allowing yourself to let go of the negatives in your life completely yet, if this is the case you truly need to think how damaging that energy is to you.
- My career and passions: I am thankful for the gift that I have been given to be “The Fixer”. I love being able to go in to an assignment fix the problem someone has and then move on to the next assignment. I love my writing and my photography for the gifts it allows me to give to others and in return to myself. I am so thankful to have found a balance in my life when it comes to these things in my life. I truly hope that my writing and the pictures I share are a gift to others and that they can help a few to find the positives and beauty in the world they may have missed until that moment.
There are so many things I am thankful for and I would just bore you in time writing about them all so I will spare you all. Just remember that you all have something to offer to this world and you need to find it and be thankful for it, whatever that gift may be. I treasure my friendships be they in person or online, I am truly blessed to have been given the opportunity to meet some amazing people and to learn more and more about them and in return more about myself and who it is I am to become. Open your minds to all the possibilities and truly be THANKFUL for all you are given. HUGS to you my friends!! Happy Thanksgiving to you all!! ~Vix~
