As I embark on a new chapter in my life, I realize that I have a lot to be thankful for. I have always had a roof over my head, clothes on my back and food in my stomach. I have a family that loves and supports me. And for the past 3 years, I have been employed by an incredible company and worked with amazing people.
Although things in my life haven't gone according to plan after graduation, I have been blessed with amazing opportunities that a lot of people cannot say. I've traveled and met amazing people. I have something that I'm passionate about and am pursuing. I'm in a much better place financially then where I was a year ago.
I know that in the day to day, it's hard to remember how fortunate we all are. Someone pisses you off, you get overlooked for your hard work, you get a paycheck and you feel like it disappears all of a sudden because of the bills, you see something on the news that makes you question humanity. But everyday of life is a blessing and I will try to remind myself of that everyday and not only on Thanksgiving.
