This past year has been one of the hardest of my life- but suddenly everything Ive ever wanted seems to be coming true all at once.
Sometimes horrible things have to happen in such a way as to open the door for something wonderful- if youre poor, struggling, depressed… dont give up
Soon youll be thanking god (or whatever higher power)
that you had faith.
I just wanted to make a place to share thankfulness.
Its important to me to remind myself what im thankful for- maybe youll share yours too
Im thankful that I have the parents I do- although they can be awful and controlling theyve pushed me so hard that Ive learned not to compromise my happiness to satisfy other people. its made all the difference.
Im thankful for the good fortune ive had to meet the amazing friend i have
Im thankful for my healthy husband and son
Im thankful for my dog! (best friend)
Im thankful for the internet and its fantastic way of exposing me to new ideas & cultures
Im thankful for terrifying horrible uncertainty & existential possibilities that fill me with energy and vitality!
Im thankful for one pushy friend who preached to m about vegetarianism until i finally tried it (which resulted in me losing 50 pounds & now im healthier than ive ever been)
Im thankful that I have the freedom to decide who im going to be every day
My bicycle! & the freedom of the midnight moonlight ride!
Im thankful for you, dear reader :)
When i have something i really want to say I usually write it here.. HE always makes me feel a little less alone in my worldview. You heathens are fantastic. thanks.

@mamacoya, this would be good for me right now because I’ve been kinda ungrateful in general lately.
I’m grateful for being able to afford healthy food and the ability to cook.
I am grateful that I’m not a pack a day smoker anymore.
