I suppose the thing I'm most thankful for this year is my friends. The past year included some of the hardest things I've ever had to deal with. I had a three month long anxiety attack, the ending of the three year relationship by the girl I wanted to spend the rest of my life with, and the death of my baby nephew all along with the normal disappointments one encounters day by day. My friends have been a constant well of support and I can't thank them enough for that. My friends are at the top of my thankful list this year. I keep the ones I like.
I'm likewise thankful for the tremendous amount of growth I've gone through in the past year. I sought help to get myself out of the anxiety attacks (which started on Thanksgiving of last year), I quit taking Benedryl, I got over the end of the relationship better and quicker than I expected, and I started my business which is growing very nicely. I got myself a brutal work ethic. My cooking has vastly improved. Looking at all of this compared to last Thanksgiving I can only attribute all of this to my faith. Because I sure as hell wasn't that strong.
I'm thankful for my family. I lucked out with families. At least as far as my immediate family goes.
I'm healthy too. That's good. And intelligent. And unbelievably handsome.
In short, I'm thankful because things could be much better, but I'm often aware enough to realize how much worse they can be.
Let's eat.
