1. Aware and appreciative of a benefit; grateful.
2. Expressive of gratitude: a thankful smile.
In the last year I have changed my job, my home, my friends, my commute, my perspective, my mind, my hair and my goals. Goals became incredibly short-term, not my usual planning ahead. My hair is officially growing out all of the color and the longest it has ever been. My mind really is a muscle and it seems the more you dump into it, the harder it is to be clear (work in progress). My perspective is an evolving script at the moment, not really sure the theme just yet. My commute went back to car / train / subway / feet as it was many years ago. My friends, just as I expected are epically amazing, they are my family I was responsible for creating. My home is one I lived in many many many lives ago and although not ideal at times, it’s an incredible gift to be warm and safe and loved unconditionally. My job was once a stationary activity in the country and now is an ever-changing combination of consulting. I seem to thrive on some level of “too much.”
With all of this change, I cannot help to think of how AMAZING it is to be able to do all of things I have done. I stood up for myself, I survived heartbreak, I committed to the non-profit world, and I created nourishment for the soul and the stomach. Looking back, despite the curveballs, it’s all good.
I am ridiculously full of thanks.
I am thankful for my family, anyone that has come in contact with them falls in love, too.
I am thankful for the ability and gift to do my job, and what lately are three jobs all at once.
I am thankful for the lack of tears lately, with such a year of change, I was gunning for a Kleenex commercial.
I am thankful for being reminded that I deserve the best.
I am thankful for “THE feeling,” I do believe universe, I do believe.
I am thankful for teaching, mentoring and learning.
I am thankful for Stupid Cancer, the organization that has redefined my commitment to the young adult cancer movement. My own healing has continued from during the path and we are making other journeys less lonely, painful and intense. A true gift, increasing the success of a cancer patient.
I am thankful for our home being intact after Hurricane Sandy and for all of the people who are (and have been) helping those impacted by the intensity of Mother Nature.
I am thankful for safety.
I am thankful for life.
I am thankful for all of you that are reading this. I have taken for granted that there is people on the other side of this page. I am rededicated to this place.
From my family, to yours, have a very Happy Thanksgiving.
