Today and every other day of the year I am grateful for simply being alive, having a roof over my head and food in the kitchen. It has been an incredibly rough year and I am so grateful that we are finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. We are healthy mentally and physical, are working towards improving our lives and it fills me with hope.
Even on the worst days I am so lucky to have such an amazing family and support system. I don’t know what I would do without my amazing partner who feeds my soul and will literally be feeding me today as well! Tess you are the most wonderful partner in life I could have ever imagined. Everyday when I wake up next to you I am comforted with our connection, understanding, equality and passion that exists in our relationship. You are my rock, my best friend and the love of my life. I am thankful for our 3 boys who are becoming incredible men. I appreciate everything about them from the way they fill our home with energy and laughter, the unconditional love they have and show us through their bear hugs and I love you’s on the regular, and that they are so strong mentally and physical and always willing to reach things on the top shelf for me. I am also very thankful for my parents and grandparents for being there for us, helping out when they can, being awesome Grandparents to the boys and for always having the time and the love to give. Last week I attended a psychic/medium party and was not only provided with some insight on my personal journey that I needed so immensely but also was contacted by my Dad in a way that made me feel full and connected even after 11 years.
I am very grateful and appreciative for my new jobs. I love working in such a strong woman empowered business with some really incredible ladies who I feel after only a month get me and appreciate me. I am remembering how great I am at my job and that confidence boost is a gift from the universe. I also am getting an opportunity to be exposed to a diverse number of cultures and am learning a lot about the human condition. I am using my sociology degree in a way I never expected and it feels great. I have also been given the privilege to work part time for a local real estate agent, giving me the creative marketing work that I love. She is not only fabulous and kind but also trusts me and allows us to have an open and honest dialogue when it comes to her business.
Lastly I am so eternally grateful for all of you, my readers, friends and chosen family. You have all been there for me so much over the last four years through my struggles, victories and failures. I learn new things from you everyday and know my life wouldn’t be the same if I didn’t have my blog, this outlet to help empower women and fulfillment of my passion. I am so privileged to consider some really incredible retailers, designers, models and bloggers my peers and love being part of this community. Thank you for that.
Oh, and I’m thankful for my fabulous clothes, that I black eyeliner, lipstick and cupcakes!
What are you Thankful for today and everyday?
With Gratitude and infinite X’s and O’s,
