Thanksgiving Already?

November 21st, 2011

I am having a hard time grasping that Thursday is Thanksgiving and that we are knocking on the doors of the last month of the year. For me, this year has flown by with warp speed and even though I feel as though much has happened and I’ve accomplished a lot- I can look back and also see things that I haven’t accomplished. It’s crazy really.

I am definitely thankful for so much in my life- for the great friends that I’ve been blessed with- even though I don’t always have the opportunity to connect with them as regularly as I’d like- (something I want to work on changing.) I’m grateful that I’ve been able to rid some toxicity out of my life and while that may not seem like much to some people- try having to deal with it fairly regularly and see what a huge weight it lifts from your shoulders when you no longer have to.

I’ve felt at times as though I am a hamster on a wheel- constantly moving forward but not really feeling as though I’m getting anywhere. I know that isn’t actually the case- but it sure seems like it at times. I’m grateful that I at least have that opportunity.

There are good things happening- and I’m grateful- my new business will be featured in two local newspapers on Wednesday after an interview and small photo session last week. It caught me completely off guard, but I welcome the publicity and hopefully will bring me some new business and open new doors for me. While in the midst of a panic about the entire thing and thinking I wasn’t ready- everyone kept telling me I was, while I was convinced I wasn’t. They were right and I’m grateful for their believing in me even when I wasn’t sure about it myself. The love and support means more than words can explain.

I really have so much to say- and finally I am caught up on the Photo 365. I have last weeks pictures to share tomorrow and then I will be up to date and that makes me happy as it’s not always playing in the back of my mind as one of those things I need to get done.

What is everyone doing this week for the holiday? We aren’t celebrating big until the weekend, but I’m looking forward to it. Pumpkin cheesecake will be on the menu.

For those of you who visit this little space please know that I haven’t forgotten your blogs- I am hoping that as I gain traction and have a little more time that I can read you more regularly- and see what has been happening in your lives.

Happy Thanksgiving week.

What are you thankful for?
