Thanksgiving is a time of year that most people get together with family, friends, and everyone becomes ‘thankful’ for what life has given them.
According to the historians, Canadians have celebrated Thanksgiving since 1578. It began as a time of celebration a successful harvest, but has since evolved to become a day of being thankful for more than just food.
It’s important to remember to be thankful everyday, not just during Thanksgiving!
What am I thankful for?
A lot of things have happened in my life this year that I am thankful for.
First, being Canadian is something I’m extremely grateful for. Our country holds vast beauty, diversity, and inclusiveness. The healthcare system we have is not perfect, but things could always be worse. It truly is a gift to live in Canada.
Support. From some of the most amazing people in my life. In the last year I cut so many people out of my life, but when one door closes another opens, and it brought true support, and friendship with it. I’m also thankful for my health, and the wisdom I have learnt from the many experiences throughout my life.
Within the last year, I worked so hard and built my platform Maritime Nightline from the ground up. What started as something that was for fun, now has become something I work hard to keep up. I have grown from an audience of 3,000 views in a week, to launching my website which now averages 50,000 views a week. I’m grateful everyday for the platform I built, the doors it has open for me, and the supporters that have supported me along the way!
I could go on, and on, but this article would turn into book.
So let’s hear from you, what are you thankful for?
