The holidays are one of my most favorite times of the year.  I’d be lying if I said that they didn’t bring me pure joy and happiness regardless of the things happening in my Life.  Seems like this year’s Thanksgiving sneaked up on me on though.  Quite honestly it seemed liked yesterday was the beginning of 2011.  Now here we are with November nearly behind us and soon in a little over a month a new year will be upon us.  A lot of things have happened this year both in my personal and business lives.  It has been an eventful year to say the least really.  One that I haven’t seen with so many change-ups in some time.  Although as we near the closing of yet another year i’m quite thankful and appreciative of several things.

Sometimes we tend to forget about the simple things.  The basics that make a difference in our lives.  Out of all the people I know and have met thus far there isn’t one person that comes to mind who may be as lucky as I am.  Even though this year has been a complete rollercoaster for me there were some good things that happened.

I’m thankful for:

  • My parents and close family that has stood by me thru thick and thin.  I’m truly blessed in that respect.  They have always shown me unconditional love and support regardless of the things happening in my Life.
  • New and old friends that won’t judge you.  This year has really shown me another side of various friendships.  It’s really true what they say.  Consider yourself lucky if you have one true friend in your Life.  I’ve become a firm believer of that.
  • New and old relationships.  Quite frankly I’ve met a lot of new folks this year alone.  Some of them I’d consider valuable acquaintances while others are simply a waste of my time.  Be careful who you associate yourself with.  Yet again during this past year I was reminded that people aren’t always what they appear to be.
  • New and old opportunities.  When one door closes another one opens.  That’s a saying I’ve been reminded of on several instances as well.  It’s amazing how things can change so quickly with a blink of an eye.

Wherever you may be during this holiday I would only hope that it’s being spent with loved ones and family.  Everyone deserves to be someone who cares for them or serves of any sort of emotional significance on this day.  It’s a celebration where we all come together to express our appreciation.  God speed and God Bless You all!

Happy Thanksgiving!
