What am I Thankful For? Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is less than a week away and I couldn’t be more thrilled about this fact. Thanksgiving is often over-shadowed by Halloween and Christmas which is a bit unfair if you think about. Halloween is the time of year that people dress like complete maniacs, stalk their neighbors down for candy, and scare them self half to death with haunted houses and scary movies.  Christmas is the time of year when people celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ and spend countless hours in shopping malls trying to find the perfect gift for their loved ones.  Both holidays are great but Thanksgiving is important too.

The reason Thanksgiving is important is because it is the one time of year that a person is required to ask them self; what am I thankful for? As a young American woman, it has become extremely easy for me to complain about any and everything. I could go crazy-nuts about things that aren’t even that big of an issue.

This year I have actually thought about the many blessings that God has given me. And a lot of them involve my beautiful family, the genuine friendships I have developed with people over the years, and fashion in America. My family is number one in my life and without these people I wouldn’t be who I am and because I love who I am; I love my family.  My genuine friendships inspire me to keep following my dreams because all my true friends support me and encourage me to follow through with my long term goals. Fashion in America is beautiful because it allows everyone to express themselves freely. This world is a place full of restrictions but here in America a person can walk the streets with no dress code.
