What I’m Thankful For
Yes, Thanksgiving was last week but my brother’s birthday is tomorrow and it made me think. There are a lot of things I have in life that I am thankful for.
He has given me my path and a super cute niece and nephew who are the highlight of my life. I am theirs too if their faces when I come through the door are any indication (go here to read why they will be the only children in my life). I’m thankful for my little sister who makes me laugh on the regular even if she makes me sick when I come home. My family’s dog gives me the pet therapy I need and keeps my bed warm sometimes. I’m thankful for my parents, even though they annoy the crap out of me (like all parents do). I know I am lucky to have them in my life. Some
I’m thankful for my extended family too. They all have taken many different paths in life.
I’ve been lucky enough to receive aid to pay for all of my undergraduate
What I am also thankful for is my mental state. I am lucky enough to not have to battle serious mental illness every day. Of course, I have bouts of depression and social anxiety, but I am slowly getting a better handle on.
