2013 -- week 48 -- thankful & november day in the life



this post has been really difficult to write -- clearly, as i've put it off for almost five weeks -- but it shouldn't be, because i have so much to be thankful for. maybe i take it all for granted, maybe that's why this post has been so hard to write. it's so easy to say you're lucky or blessed and to be quietly thankful for the things around you that make your life, your life, but to put it down in writing can sometimes sound boastful or arrogant. like if you put it all in words the universe will take it away from you for being so full of yourself. but i am lucky, as many of us are, luckier than we may deserve or than we realize, but lucky nonetheless. (whenever you forget this fact, look at this poster and remember that you, too, are lucky.) and therefore, i am thankful. i'm thankful for all of the large things that seem small, clean sheets, a stocked fridge, a warm shower, and the genuinely huge things too, namely, all of the wonderful people in my life. i love you too. and in case i don't say this enough, thank you.


something else i'm thankful for: celebrating my golden birthday in a fun place with fun people. 29 on the 29th: let the descent (rise?) into my thirties begin. there's a lot i want to get done before then, so here's hoping that this upcoming year rolls slowly along, no speeding and no accidents.


i'm also exceedingly thankful for the opportunity to go on adventures and explore with my boo, rcg.



what are you thankful for?
