I know it's been a while since I've written anything here, but I really felt it necessary to express today what I'm thankful for. This year has been an amazing year. Though filled with many challenges, it has been one of the best years of my life. Things have changed drastically for me from the date I started this blog to this point in my life, and I could not be more happy with how everything has turned out.
I am so thankful for many things that have happened.
-The help I got from my mom in getting my own house. Without her help I wouldn't have been approved for the necessary credit, and I wouldn't have had a place to live and save enough money for a significant down payment. There were of course other little things along the way as well that I would've had some trouble with had I not had her and her fiance's support.
- My friends/family. I am sure I've said it before, but I'll say it again. Because you're not related to someone by blood certainly doesn't mean they aren't family. I can think of a couple of people specifically that feel more like family to me than almost any of my real family ever has. The opposite holds true as well. Just because you are related to someone by blood, doesn't necessarily mean they could be considered family. Regardless, I know I am lucky to have the friends that I have and the immense amount of support and understanding they have given me, whatever the situation might have been.
-There is also one other extremely important and life changing event that happened this year, which I am incredibly thankful for. My boyfriend is many things to me. He's my best friend, soulmate, support, and one of the only people in this world that I know I can rely on. As time has progressed everything just keeps getting better. Being with someone who truly understands you and you can relate to in every way, I realize that is something not everyone is able to find. There's no one in this world that I'm closer to or more grateful for. No one who treats me better than he does, and whom I respect more. Without him I would be lost. Because of him, I am able to truly understand what it means to feel complete.
Though there are also many other things I am thankful for, I felt that these three things were very critical factors in what has made my year so great so far. We still have challenges ahead of us in many ways, and always will.. but I hope that anyone reading this knows that life can keep getting better. Sometimes you just have to let go and let it happen. :)
A year ago today I would've never had the slightest hope to have such an amazing life.
Thank you all for reading! I hope you have a great Thanksgiving with your families!
