One thing that I love about the Holiday season is it reminds me to be thankful for everything I have, and being thankful makes for a happier life. Thanksgiving is always a wonderful beginning to this amazing season and a great way to start it off, by remembering all of the things we have to be thankful for in our lives. Thanksgiving this year was one of my favorites ever because I was able to spend it with an amazing group of friends and family. I was reminded about how thankful I am for my awesome group of friends and my best friend in particular, who is always there for me no matter what the situation. I am thankful for absolutely everyone in my family for always supporting me and making my life fun and interesting. I am thankful for the ability to have a great dinner with people that I care about and food that tastes amazing. I am thankful for all of the opportunuities I have been given in my life and all of the different people I have had the pleasure of meeting.

I am thankful for the ability to help people and make other people happy because there is nothing better than that. There are so many more things to be thankful for that I cannot possibly list them in one day, but just thinking about all of the things I have to be thankful for makes my a happier person and teaches me to be greatful for everything I get. I think that this holiday season we should all remember to give thanks for what we have, be greatful for what we get, and don't be mad about what you don't get. The holidays have changed from a time of just being with the family, enjoying each others company, and getting a few meaningful gifts, into a materialistic season where people are more concerned about getting everything that someone asks for than being there with them and making meaningful memories. Take time today to remember all of the things you have to be thankful for and to brighten someone elses day by giving them your time.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy
https://www.pexels.com/photo/shallow-focus-photography-of-yellow-sunflower-field-under-sunny-sky-1169084/

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
