I am also grateful.
I am grateful that I have a job. I am grateful that I have a home that I love to go home to at the end of the day. I love that it gives me the financial freedom to sit here and do this and not worry about how to pay the bills. Even on the crazy days I am so immensely grateful.
I have a grateful heart.
I am grateful for my wonderful friends and my heart-soul family. The ones that effortlessly glide into my life and the ones that wiggle their way into my reluctant heart. I am grateful for the massive love I feel from them, the kind of love that smooths away the childhood wounds. I am grateful for the guys that take my friendship in stride, and don't ask all that much of me. I am grateful for the girls that put up with my fumbling attempts at being a good friend. I'm also grateful for you (doubly so) because you allow me an outlet for the things that are in my heart. I am grateful for those that are my comfort zone and those that try to push me out of it.
I am grateful for the moments that make me feel alive, blood-rushing, heart-thumping, the moments that bring life into intense focus. I am grateful for the quiet, lazy, moments that allow me the time to steep and soak in my thoughts. I am grateful for the work that I do in this space. I am grateful that I have managed to turn my life into a tool to help others.
I think that is the thing that I am most thankful for.
