It’s Thanksgiving in America today and that means I finally have free time to get on this blog. First and foremost, happy Thanksgiving to all my readers! This holiday shouldn’t be the only time we actually stop to think about what we’re thankful for. I was listening to the radio on Monday and the dj was jokingly talking about how he had to work in the UK one Thanksgiving and they thought it odd that we make a holiday just to give thanks when thanks should be given everyday. This statement does make a point, but I think the Thanksgiving allows us a break from our busy schedules to actually spend time with those that we’re thankful for. As for this post, it will mainly be a reflection on the past year, what I learned, and what I’m thankful for.
As I am every year, I am thankful for the health, happiness, and prosperity of myself, my family, and the family of my friends. This year was a big year for me. It was a time where I transitioned from being a student with limited responsibilities, to an unemployed adult, to an employed full-time adult. Throughout this year, I faced many challenges and learned many lessons as a result of these things. The most important lesson I learned from these experiences is perseverance. Even when things look bad, as long as you keep at it, you will eventually pull through. This applies to life, work, and relationships. At the end of the day, nothing comes easy in life. Nothing in life happens the way we plan it.
So once again in the nature of Thanksgiving, I would like to thank all of my friends, family, and coworkers for their support and friendship. I wouldn’t be where I am today without having been exposed to the people, places, and experiences I’ve been through so far. Happy turkey day, don’t get too fat!
Thanks for reading!
