Ten Things I Am Thankful For.

I Fall, I Rise, I Make Mistakes. I Live. I Learn. I've been so HURT, But I'm Alive. I'm Human and I'm NOT Perfect But I'm THANKFUL!
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovelies over at The Broke and the Bookish.

Thanksgiving is truly on of my favorite times. 
I try to remember all year that I am incredibly blessed but sometimes real life becomes overbearing and I get caught up in that and forget to see that wonderful things I have. So it's nice to have a time of year dedicated to thankfulness.
My list of things I am thankful for is really endless.
Sometimes I forget that I have so much, but I've been trying to get better at that.
I even have a blessings jar on my bookshelf, so whenever I start complaining about petty things or forget to be grateful I think of a blessing, write it on a post it note and put it in the jar. That jar has filled up quickly.

always an abundance of things to be thankful for.

#1- My Family.
I'm thankful that my mom and dad had me. I'm kinda partial to being alive and such.
And I'm thankful for my older brother. Without him I wouldn't have had anyone to blame things one while growing up.

#2- My Best Friends.
They've seen me at my best, they've seen me at my worst. They still love me even when I crack terrible jokes or sing a little too loud and too off key. They get my pop-culture and fandom references. They are pretty much keepers.

#3- My Church Family. 
More people that put up with my weirdness and still love me.
Thanks, y'all :)

#4- My Job.
Even though I work in customer service and people drive me crazy sometimes 
Thankful!with all of their demands and complaints and how everything isn't
just how they want it,
I am incredibly thankful that I at least have a job.
A lot of customers aren't so bad and I have met some wonderful friends at my job.
Friends (and even one or two that turned out to be more than friends) that have changed my life
in one way or another.
But just so everyone is clear on this, the customer is NOT always right.


#5- Bookshops.
Forever making me a happy girl and constantly feeding my addiction.
Always opening doors to new worlds.
There's not a town in the world I can go to without seeking out a bookshop.

GRATITUDE: my morning coffee with Kelly. we talk about the upcoming day, hold hands, reminisce...

#6- Coffee Dates with my best friend.
Seriously, our Starbucks dates are some of my favorite times.
We have sat there for hours talking about everything. She lets me go on and on about the boy I like, she tells me about the horse she wants, we complain, we laugh, we talk about traveling, concerts we want to see. It's perfect.
I look forward to every single one of them.


#7- Writing.
Writing is one of my most favorite things and I am so thankful that so many people in my life
are so encouraging of my dream to write.
And though I doubt my ability and talent sometimes I know it's what I want to do.

It's hard to show people the change of thought patterns that come from within & mold & strengthen ur resolve-this is nicely stated ~ deb

#8- Change.
As scary as it is sometimes, change is really a beautiful thing.
And I am thankful for it because without it I would still be where I was a couple years ago, and that was a terrible                                            place that no one should ever have to be.

I do this! And have done it A LOT lately! Hemlock Grove, Orange is the New Black, scandal, revenge, long way down, long way round, new girl, top of the lake, Spartacus, game of thrones, true blood and now I'm on Miami Vice...going to watch all five seasons!! Golly, I love the 80s! And LOVE NetFlixing!    

#9- Netflix.
Colour me shallow, but I really am thankful for the invention of Netflix.
Whoever thought it up gets a cyber highfive.

#10- You!
Thanks..for coming to see me....plz don't ever stop...xo
My reading friend and blogging buddy.
Whether you are a new reader of this blog or if you've been with me since the beginning,
I am thankful for you.
You help make my blog possible and that makes you wonderful :)

Well guys, I hope everyone has an incredible Thanksgiving.
And if you don't celebrate it, I still hope you have a wonderful day and just remember to take some time to remember all the ways that you are blessed.

Happy reading, y'all!


  1. I LOVE the idea of a blessings jar. Really, it's brilliant. I've heard of gratitude journals, but a jar is more of a visible reminder of all you've been blessed with. Love it!

  2. Amazing list! I forgot to include my family/dogs on my list because I was too busy fangirling over a certain TV show that I'm thankful for and now I feel silly!

  3. Great list! I also work with the general public and they can be unbelievably frustrating! Netflix is amazing, where would I be without it?!? My TTT.


I love comments, so you should leave me one...or two :D
