“I am grateful for what I am and have.
My thanksgiving is perpetual…
O how I laugh when I think of my vague indefinite riches.
No run on my bank can drain it
for my wealth is not possession but enjoyment.”
- Henry David Thoreau
It’s that time of the year, the time where we talk about all of the things we are thankful for. Some people chose to Tweet, Facebook and/ or blog each day throughout the month of November. I am choosing to, for the rest of the week, blog and post on the many platforms I’m a part of the many things I am thankful for starting today with a few things I am the most thankful for; especially today.
As crazy as they can sometimes be, without them I wouldn’t be where I’m at. I’m thankful to have been raised the way I was. I’m thankful for the time I have with my family and thankful that they understand and accept my crazy, busy life these days.
Both old and new, without these people in my life… well my life would be boring, that’s for sure. Good friends are very hard to come by and I’ve realized in the past few months that everyone you meet isn’t looking for a friendship. I’ve also learned that this is OK.
I’m thankful to have had the opportunity to go back home after 3 years and spend 2 weeks with some old friends, drink some Bud Light and sing some horrible karaoke. I’m thankful that when I’m having a horrible day I know someone will be on the other end of the phone to help me see the silver lining.
I’m extremely thankful for those friends that motivate, inspire and help me when I’m at a loss for what to do next both in business and in my personal life. If I don’t say it enough, thank you.
These people are pretty awesome and for obvious reasons I am thankful for them.
This time last year I went to the hospital having a severe asthma attack and was hospitalized for 4 days. I am thankful for this experience as it gave me a reason to finally quit smoking.
I do believe everything happens for a reason.
