Happy Thanksgiving!! Thank you for coming to my space on a day about giving thanks because I am extremely thankful to YOU. I am thankful that you are part of this corner of the internet and chose to be a part of my community. It makes me so happy each day realizing that I can be of use and inspiration to you.
This year, I want to shed some light into some people who have made it the best 2019 has to offer. And today, I am thankful to everyone who has helped formed into into a more confident and life-loving person. Here are some specific shoutouts:
Today, I am Thankful for my Family
This goes without saying, but I don’t thank them enough. Mom, Dad, Jason and Jody: Thank you. You are everything and your unwavering support of my endeavors mean I am fearless in what I go after.
My parents are the most supportive individuals I have ever met. The word “no’ never comes out of their months and every time I start doubting myself, they give me a million more reasons on why “I CAN”. I can’t thank them enough for all the hard work they put into ensuring that we are okay while downplaying their own struggles. Their selflessness always inspires me and motivates me to work harder.
And for Jason and Jody who I harp on daily to do more. Thank you both for not getting (too) mad at me when I challenge your decisions. I know I am a hard sister to deal with aha – but also, thank you for always being my support! You two continuously support my endless dreams and keep telling me to dream bigger. I know you two are my biggest blog readers and for that I am eternally grateful. I am also so proud of the two of you!
Today, I am Thankful for Alex
Alex’s support this year has been so unwavering and I have to say a big THANK YOU. I can’t believe that even after 5 years of knowing year other, we are still able to love and have so much fun. In this year, he has seen the rawest side of me and yet continues to love me. I have seen a deeper and even more hardworking side to him this year than any other and I am so proud of him for that.
His passion for working hard and creating goals has motivated me to find purpose in my life. I had so many moments of self-doubt this year and he has been the rock that brings my noggin back to home base, reminding me constantly of my worth. Alex, you are the diamond in the dust – I thank you every day for being my confiant.
Today, I am Thankful for my Best Friend Jules
I don’t get to see my best friend of almost 15 years often, but every time we talk, it seems as if we are brought back to high school Jenny and Julianna. Today, I want to THANK YOU JULES for being my soulmate friend, even from afar. Your support for my endeavors makes me believe that I can take on the world. Your understanding of my dynamics, insecurities and feelings, even without me having to verbally tell you, makes me feel heard and seen. Thank you for always taking time out of your day, no matter how busy, to help me in times of need. I am eternally grateful to have someone in my life as special as you. Sometimes I have to pinch myself realizing that someone like me can deserve someone as amazing as you. I miss you and hope to plan a trip soon!
Today, I am Thankful for New Friends
This online community is the BEST. Yes, that means YOU. You are my friend, so THANK YOU. This place wouldn’t exist without your constant support and love flowing into my comments section on here and on Instagram.
I have been able to connect with some AMAZING individuals who I feel as if they get what I am saying all the time. Being in the same industry makes it so easy to talk about all things content creation! I’ve been some amazing creators in real person and I feel as if some of them have since transformed into my really good friends. And then there are ones I talk to on Instagram as if we are already great friends and I can’t wait to meet them one day. Thank you, for spending time with me!
Today, I am Thankful for ME
I wanted to spend a lil’ bit of time thanking myself for being able to get through this year. It has been hard and I know at times it will get harder. But I have been able to get through it and come happier. I have realized the true people around me and I couldn’t be happier with who’s still here. Life isn’t about quantity, but quality of the people. I am strong and I am powerful – I do have the ability to change my future and I can achieve all of my crazy dreams!
Take the time today to thank yourself and someone else in your life. Too often we get wrapped up in the mundane things in life that we forget to say the simple words of “THANK YOU”. It may mean the world to the people around you! Anyways, have a great rest of your thanksgiving and I hope to see you back here!
A million and one thanks for reading — until my next lil’ thought then!
