Wow as I type this I still can't believe that I'm about to turn 36 years old on Christmas. Of course Christmas is over a month away, but I do want to share a few of my thankful thoughts today.
Obviously this year isn't over yet, but it has been quite a year so far. This Summer I took time off my blog. I needed a break. At the time I was going through some things and I wasn't able to focus much on my content. I realized that's okay to take a step back. I think it's very important to prioritize mental health. Since the pandemic began last year I began making my self care more of a priority.
There have been times in my life that I have felt my faith being tested. Part of this year was one of those times. In life things may not turn out the way you plan, but you ultimately have control on how you react. Sometimes things throw you by surprise, but I've learned I can handle things better if I remain calm.
Despite a few setbacks I have so much to be thankful for. I try to focus on the good in life instead of the bad. I feel blessed that I have a loving mother who encourages and supports me in my endeavors. I'm blessed and thankful to have a home and basic necessities. During these times it's so important to be thankful not just for Thanksgiving, but everyday. I'm thankful for the brands that see my hard work ethic as a smaller influencer.
I always mention in my inspirational based posts that my religious belief are my own. As we near the holiday season and the end of the year I pray for the world. I pray for those who seek peace and happiness. I pray you have a wonderful ending to this year, and look forward to a bight and prosperous future.
