I have so much to be thankful for every year and I’m excited that this year there isn’t an exception. So many times in our lives we lean on others in our times of need. However there are many of us who don’t have people to lean on. I’d like to personally thank those who have extended themselves to me in the past year.
I’ve had a lot of difficult circumstances to deal with the past 365 days. Some of the things are things that I brought on myself and others are things that should have been thwarted and I let them carry on far too long.
My daughter is making terrific progress as she has now grown into a great 6 year old version of myself. It’s crazy when looking at her how much she looks and acts like me. Her mannerisms and everything are so much like mine at her age that it feels as if I am peeking back in time and looking at myself experience life all over again.
I know it’s going to change for her eventually:
- because she is a girl
- because times change
- because eventually she has to take on a few of her mothers traits as well.
That being said, I’m incredibly thankful for her and all that she gives me. She’s a ray of light to my gloomy days. She’s my best friend when I need to escape being an adult for a few hours and she’s also reminding me that some things in life are easier to figure out than we allow. We spend far too much time overthinking and over analyzing things instead of living and enjoying the things that are in front of us.
I had some great times this year with some great people. I don’t have all of those people in my life anymore but I can say that I don’t regret one single minute of the time we spent from the weight room to life lessons. Happy Thanksgiving.
