I am Thankful for..

With Thanksgiving approaching, I noticed few of friends on my facebook are posting on  “what they are thankful for” each day and that’s what inspired me to write this post today.

What am I most thankful for?
 …I don’t even know where to begin or end because I am so grateful for each an everything, each an everyone in my life because its those moments, experiences, both memorable and painful ones I have had that makes me who I am today.

First and foremost is my wonderful family. I am here because of their constant love, support, & faith in me during my best & worst times. Thank you. Thank you. It means everything.

My amazing friends from all over the world. Though I feel distant from some of my very close friends, I miss them alot and I am very thankful that they are/were part of my life. They have always been there for me & I hope they always will. Wherever you guys are, I ♥ you all & each one you have made an impact in my life. 

My good health. There is nothing more important than being in a good health & free of any sort of illnesses. Sometimes even the heftiest bank balance cannot save one’s life from some of the ugliest diseases out there.  

My awesome job. When the whole economy was and is going through rough times, I was fortunate to have a job which sponsored my work-visa in order for me to stay & continue working in US as a dietitian. A career that I have always wanted and absolutely love. I am thankful for my job, my boss, and my co-workers. 

… there are countless other things I am thankful for-my abilities to taste food,  see things around me, smell perfumes, my car, hair straighter, internet, MAC products, three hole punch..the list goes on & on.
I get wrapped up more with these unnecessary, materialistic (well, they are very necessary) things and fail to appreciate that life offers much more than that. Call me selfish, materialistic but that is what it is. 

And the sad,pathetic thing is it takes some catastrophic events such as the recent hurricane Sandy, untimely death or terminal disease, or something unfortunate for me to realize that I am one lucky girl with an amazing life that I have to be very thankful for..every day!

What are you thankful for?

    So well written Dixya. Yes, it often takes catastrophic events such as Sandy, and sometimes an untimely death for us to be thankful for what we have, first and foremost, health! :)
