What I’m Grateful For


Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you have a great day, whether you celebrate the holiday or not. Personally, I am beyond excited to get three days off from work and school, although I do have plenty of projects to keep working on!

I never was a huge fan of Thanksgiving, especially since the focus always seemed to be on the food. Even prior to becoming a vegetarian, I wasn’t overly fond of most of the food options (I know, I know-I’m very picky). Thanksgiving isn’t completely about the food, however, and I do love the opportunity to consider what I’m thankful for!

In the future, I would like to get in more of a routine of writing down what I’m grateful for. Even if it’s small things that might be overshadowed by the negative events that happened that day, there’s always something to be thankful for! I think it’s beneficial to remember that on both a daily and a yearly basis. The daily things might be meeting up with a friend for coffee or a good tip I received, and the yearly ones are the ones that happen regularly throughout the year. This post includes some of the things I have been thankful for in 2019.

What I’m Thankful For


Happy Thanksgiving everyone! While many people travel to be with family on Thanksgiving, I always spend the day with my parents and my brother. This year, my mom is cooking for Thanksgiving (with a little help from me), although in the past we spent dinner at places like Golden Corral and Cracker Barrel.

I’m not overly fond of Thanksgiving food, so I try to spend the day focusing on what I’m thankful for. Life can be hard sometimes, so it’s always nice to think about the positive things in life! As for me, I’ve been struggling with finding myself and getting a job suitable for my college degree. Fortunately, these aren’t the most troubling issues a person can have, which is why I feel like I have a lot to be thankful for.
