It’s that time of year… Thanksgiving is right around the corner. It’s reflecting on what we’re grateful to have in our lives and spending time with family and friends. I feel like most of us forget most of the year what we’re actually grateful for. Because nowadays we’re always competing against someone else to get something better than what they have or we just simply forget. I’m a part of that, but I reflect on some days of what I'm grateful for throughout the year… it’s a 50/50 scenario. But anyways, here’s what I'm grateful for.
I’m grateful to have a family that loves and supports me through everything I do. My family means the world to me, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Even when we all have our differences at some points, we’re still together, happy and alive. Thank you for giving me memories I’ll never forget. My parents are my rocks, and I’m forever and a day grateful for all that they’ve done for me. I don’t know how I would ever repay them for going through all the tears, fights, and laughter that I put them through. Thank you guys for always being there and loving me unconditionally for the past almost 20 years. I don’t know what I would do without you guys. Love you, mom and dad.
I’m grateful to have a boyfriend who loves me for me and allows me to go on rants whenever something is bothering me (most of the time it’s about me losing at 8-ball or any game really) or letting me talk about conspiracy theories. But I'm more grateful that we have such an open and honest relationship. Not only is he my boyfriend, but he’s also my best friend, which makes me super grateful. Thanks for sticking around the past 8 years.
I’m grateful for my friends. They know how to make me laugh until my stomach is killing me. I love our talks about such random topics and learning what their thoughts are on that conversation. Or them coming to me for makeup advice. I’m glad we never have any fights because we tell each other what’s up. I’m entirely grateful to be around them because they influence me to do better as a person, and they influence me to buy cookie dough at times … that’s a whole different article. Thanks for being there, friends.
It might be “shocking” to some people, but I’m grateful for all the people that left my life as well. They are really the ones who showed me who I am as a person. They all made me stronger, which made me the person I am today. Whether that be ex-friends, ex-boyfriends, or ex-family members, They all put me through situations I never thought I would be in and now here I am, surrounded by wonderful people who don’t put me in bad situations. Granted, I don’t talk to any of the people that left my life, but I still wish them the best.
Thank you for reading this article, and I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving. Stay tuned for my next article! :)
