Giving Thanks

Last Thanksgiving I posted about what I was thankful for, and thankfully I still feel the same way. Here’s that list, and more:

I’m thankful for my family – my friends – my soulmate. I’m thankful to have two wonderful dogs – to be from Tucson – to have the opportunity to travel. I’m thankful for the roof over my head – for my education – for Mexican food. I’m thankful to have a diverse group of friends – to have access to healthy foods – to have health insurance. I’m thankful for my youth – my health – my unique perspective. I’m thankful to be employed – to be in love – to have a best friend for a sister. I’m thankful to be a woman – to have supportive parents – to have creative outlets. I’m thankful for the hurdles I’ve overcome. I’m thankful for a bright future. I’m thankful to have so much to be thankful for.

I’m thankful to have people I can confide in. I’m thankful to have the option to do anything I want with my life. I’m thankful for my smart and unbelievably talented friends and family who have helped shape who I am. I’m thankful for how beautiful the world can be. I’m thankful that I live in a country where people can protest freely. I’m thankful for the small acts of kindness that strangers share. I’m thankful to have people to spend Thanksgiving with.

What are you thankful for?
