Our Appetizer.: Thankful Thursday Link-Up

Thankful Thursday Link-Up

Welcome to the first Thankful Thursday Link-up!
This link-up was created to reflect & approach what we have in our lives.

We live in such a busy world that demands so much for us. Sometimes we are so wrapped up on doing more and having more that we forget to appreciate the things that we always have. Today let's be thankful for what we have and reflect on these things as a way of impowerment to take steps to a more balanced and appreciative lifestyle.

I am thankful for:

- my health. As much as I always say I want to become healthier I am still so blessed to have the health that I do have.

- my family. I am the person I am today because of them. I aspire to be like them and to have to be able to provide my kids the life my family provided me.

- my guy. He is amazing and loves me unconditionally. Even though we are so far apart we are always find a way to be close at heart.

- my friends. These girls are the best girl friends a girl could ask for.

- my education. Without it I wouldn't have the job that I have or the career I am trying to build.

- my job. I seriously love my job, yes it's stressful but I love it. 

- this blog. It makes me reflect on who I am as a person. It makes me want to be a better person.

- the ability to travel. I love exploring new cultures and see new places. 

- memories. Somethings will never be forgotten and it's definitely best that way. The memories I've created with loved ones are like gold.

- wine. when all else fails, wine will always be there.

  2. This is such a great idea for a link up! My post was already written/not about being thankful, but I hope it's okay I linked up anyway! (You can delete my link if not!) I just started a link up, Fit Tip Tuesday, and I know how hard it is to start it off, so I'm happy to show my support! For the first couple weeks I was just happy to get anyone linked up, no matter what their post was about! I also recommend making a button so people can easily link back to your post! :)
