As God be my witness, this year has been super crappy; even the bubbly me hangs her head and sighs when I look back on this year and see the misses –
- Got unceremoniously dumped! (Yay!)
- Much awaited Promotion did not happen and in fact went to an office slacker
- More rejections on publishing front
- More financial strain due to some unforeseen expenditure by parents
So really, on this glorious gratuitous day, I sit back and think, well do I really have anything to be thankful for? I mean my God seems to be on vacations here…..
But then is life really that bad???? Yeah! Pretty Much!!!
However I can still hang on and that in itself is a cause for celebration! Besides, it is absolutely ungrateful as my flatmate tells me to forget all the brilliant things in my life just because some setbacks.
Therefore, here’s to being grateful –
My people – family, friends and more who stood by me and held me through some fun adventurous nights (irony intended)
My books – Oh! Such joy to just read through the night; to escape to a world where life is so much better and see things in a different light!
My blog and followers – The joy of coming home and seeing a like/comment or a follower – only a blogger would know the high of that comes of it! Besides, so many people whom I call friends, I have met thanks to blogging – could there be a better incentive than that?
My Job – I cannot believe I wrote that! But let’s face facts – there are plenty of people out there in the world who would kill for a job like mine! Comfortable, secure with a lot of job satisfactions – I mean the Project Manager me quite likes doing Projects!
My Hope – I know this is intangential, but I cannot imagine living through my life without any sense of hope! I felt like that for a couple of days and they were not good – felt like I had lost all sense of joy! As long as I have the sense of hope I know I will survive, no matter how low life gets!
On that brilliant philosophical note, I end this blog!
A very happy Thanksgiving to all of You, regardless of whether you celebrate this day or not! You have no idea how much you’re reading through this or stopping by my blog means to me. Thank You for being a part of this adventure with me!
