Hello again world! It feels great to be back here but the long hiatus was much needed. I've finally gotten some personal things in order and it feels like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders!
Thanksgiving weekend has passed and it has to be one of my top ten moments of life! I celebrated with family, friends, and even a bunch of old classmates for my 10 year high school reunion! Yes I am getting old but fortunately I don't feel it just yet. There are a few more reasons but I can't list them until it's official.
So here are my tiny list of gratitudes of 2012:
01 // friends & family
I know for the past few years I've been MIA or distant from loved ones but they're shown me I can always lean on them for support. I don't know where I'd be without them and for that I'd like to say thank you to each one of them.
02 // creativity
Crafting has not only helped me financially but it's given me a way to express myself through words and photos. I just hope one day I can take my goals to the next level.
03 // electricity
I didn't know how precious light was until I went through Hurricane Sandy. I was very fortunate to only lose electricity for a few days and have any physical damage to the house, including my parents' place. There are many here in NJ who suffered much worse and I can't even imagine what they're going through. I can only hope we all can join together as a community and rebuild what we've lost.
04 // good health
I'm a few pounds above what I want to be but I'm still thankful to be alive and well. Now that I'm motivated to take care of myself, I'm hoping to cure my disease of laziness and procratination.
05 // brushing off the negativity from my shoulders
I started off the year with bad breakups in both friendships and relationships. It turns out these situations were actually blessings in disguise as I found myself more happier than I've ever been in years. Every day has truly been a learning experience and I'm so happy to live the life I've been given.
Well enough of my sappiness. I hope everyone got to enjoy the long weekend, even if you didn't participate in Thanksgiving celebrations. I'm looking forward to the next holiday now, Christmas!
