Give Thanks….on Thanksgiving

Image

With Thanksgiving next week, let us all take a moment (or two) to give thanks for the people, places, things, etc. we are grateful for (minimum of 10).

I am super excited about Thanksgiving! Besides my birthday, Christmas and New Year’s, it is one of the BEST days of the year! I am grateful for many things in my life, and I not only give thanks just on Thanksgiving, but every day. I think being thankful is an essential part of living. My list can on and on for hours, when I’m praying. But, I won’t be long-winded in my list for this post. 

I am ultimately thankful for God, who’s the head of my life, health and strength. If it were not for him, I do not know if I would have made it this far…with anything. I am thankful for life’s challenges, to the extreme! It is such a cliche` to say that I have been through many struggles, but this is true. I appreciate my past and what I had to go through to get where I am today. 

I am thankful for my family, my friends, and the different people that come and go on a daily basis. I feel that meeting new people everyday happens for a reason. They contribute to my life, somehow. I am thankful for my professors and my advisors along the way. I honestly need them to succeed! I am thankful for my organizational families, because without them our student organizations will not thrive. 

I am thankful for my education, with the most sincerity. I am a first generation college student and I plan to be extremely successful in every aspect. I am thankful for my college experiences, whether service activities, projects, and events. I am able to say that the majority of my resume` experience has been developed by volunteering. I have had the opportunity to participate in major fashion events (i.e. Miami Fashion Week) and events, such as Savannah’s Fashion Night Out and Actor’s Night Out. I have met some wonderful people, and have built relationships to last. 

Everyone has much to be thankful for everyday. It is by faith, strength, and bonded relationships that I am who I am, and how I will obtain the success I want. I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving (in advance), and to let everyone know to give thanks, not just on Thanksgiving, but each and every day. Be Blessed!
