"Because of you I can feel myself slowly but surely becoming the me I have always dreamed of being."
Today is my favorite of all the holidays. I don't find that we take enough time out of our days to give thanks for everything we have -- for the places we've gone, the lessons we've learned, the friends we've gained, the friends we've lost, the everyday blessings we take for granted, the roof over our heads, the life that we've been given. As humans, it's part of our nature to constantly seek more. Our current state is never enough -- there's always upwards and onwards; more depth, more breadth. And it's true: life has so much to offer, so in the numbered breaths we have why not grasp on? But as I've always been taught...in everything give thanks. So today, I want to thank all of you. From those who I now count friends to those who simply support me by reading my rambling thoughts and double-tapping a little heart on Instagram, I am truly so grateful to each and every one of you. It is because of you guys that I can be who I am today and pursue this blog and my dreams despite where I came from or how I started. I hope from the bottom of my heart that each of you has a wonderful Thanksgiving spent in the company of those you care about most, and that in some way or another, you feel cherished for what you've added into their lives because you have forever changed mine.
