I cannot believe that Thanksgiving is tomorrow!! This entire year has flown by so fast. And, as it has mostly sucked, I thought it would be good for me to sit and actually write out what I’m thankful for. The exercise will remind me that, no matter what, there’s still good stuff happening.
As always, these are in no particular order:
The first thankful I have is my sister. I cannot imagine my life without her. She’s my best friend, confidant, partner-in-crime . . and partner-in-wine.
My second thankful are all my friends.Whether I see you all the time, occasionally, or hardly at all know that I am so glad to have you in my life.
My next thankful, is my amazing daytime job. I love it and not because I have my own office, my own business cards, and my very own work cell phone. Nope, it’s because it’s an amazing organization and the people are . . . well, amazing.
Next, I’m thankful for my health. Yeah, I know, how sappy, but it’s true. I’m able to get up everyday to go and do what I want. I know people who aren’t able to do that. So, I’m really lucky.
I’m very thankful for my cat, Maeve. When I’m down or feeling a bit blue, she’s always up for snuggles and kisses.
I’m thankful that my doctor has finally, finally helped me get my depression under control. Now, will it be like this forever? I know it won’t since depression is like any chronic illness. It needs to be monitored and I need to be more aware, but right now I’m out of the hole and feeling better.
Which leads me to my next thankful, no matter how long I’ve ignored my writing, it’s there for me. I’ve started working again and I can say that feels good.
