So it was Thanksgiving yesterday in America so I would like to wish a belated Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it.
Thanksgiving is a holiday that was originally celebrated to share thanks to the blessing of the harvest and the preceding year. Having had 500 views on this blog from America, which is a whole 6178 miles away from where I am currently sitting, I thought it would be fitting to share what I’m thankful for.
Just as a side note, I am, of course, very grateful and thankful for food, water, a safe home environment, education and things in which I might take for granted which are scarce to others in our world. These are six light-hearted things which are personal and specific to my life.
- First and foremost, I’m thankful to my friends and family who are always there to pick me up whenever I have a bad day or two. I’d be no where without them all, literally, and I can’t thank them enough for everything that they have done for me.
- I’m thankful to Musical Theatre for consuming me, quite literally. I don’t know what I’d do to pass time without my soundtracks, DVDs and tickets. And, it has introduced me to people like Celinde Schoenmaker who obtains such talent and is a real idol. Every single day, I watch or listen to something that is related to a musical of some sort. I’m obsessed. Like unhealthily obsessed.
- Cups of tea in my extensive collection of mugs. I am very thankful for mugs and teabags. I’m becoming very reliant on tea. I need several to function. Literally, nothing makes my day tick quite like a Disney or London themed mug of black tea with one to three sugars depending on the mood.
- I’m thankful for knitted clothing. Winter makes me happy just because I can wear my knitted jumpers without being met with the ‘It’s Summer. Why do you look like you’re off to battle the Antarctic?’ looks.
- I’m thankful for London. Mainly because it is my favourite place in the entire world and it provides me with the ultimate aspiration to live there and be a successful journalist… you know the story!
- And lastly, I’m extremely thankful to everyone who reads my blog. It’s scary to think I’m only 80 views away from 3000 and that it has been read in 44 countries. The power of social media. But it’s so lovely and motivating knowing that at least someone reads my blog posts.
Let me know what makes you happy and what you’re most thankful for.
