Hello hello! I know what you are thinking- who are you and where have you been? Honestly, I’ve been busy and life happens so I’ve had to put my focus on other things BUT HERE I AM. ALIVE AND WELL.
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I want to take this time to reflect on a few things I am thankful for. I love this time of year because it is filled with so much love, joy and happiness. The things below help get me through every single day and I wouldn’t be who I am without them.
- My support system – There are so many people in my life who are there to support me through everything I do and I honestly wouldn’t be where I am or who I am without them. Whether it’s my mom, my close girlfriends or my boyfriend, I am constantly surrounded by people who love me and want whats best for me.
- My body– I have had a love/hate relationship with my body for quite some time but it still provides me with the ability to do everything I love- running, hiking, weight lifting etc. I push it so much and it bares through it all. I am beautiful. I am strong. My body works wonders.
- Earth and its beautiful creations– Earth is beautiful and it provides us with so much. Here are some delicious creations provided from the fruits of this lovely planet. (I’m 100% a foodie and will love food till death do us part.)
4. You– Because you took the time to read this which means you’re still invested in Squats Over Sweets although I have been MIA for quite some time and I appreciate that so much. Knowing you’re interested in what I have to say and how much I’ve grown means so much.
Thanksgiving gives us a little reminder that we should think of the things we are thankful for but I make a point to think about these things every single day. A good friend once told me that I should think of three things that made me happy each day right before I fall asleep at night. It really helps put reality in check and I highly recommend you try it!
Be thankful. Be grateful. Be you. Be kind. Love always. Give graciously.
