The Important Things
On Thanksgiving and around the holidays in general, I try to reflect on the good people, the good days, the good things in life. We recently found out that my best friend's sister has Hodgkins Disease and it has really made me think and put my problems and frustrations into perspective. I got so annoyed the other day because someone almost hit my car, then screamed at me... I had to clean the house, and work.. yada, yada. Who was I to think that my life is so bad?! I am so thankful that I am healthy.. I have money for the necessary expenses, a roof over my head, loving friends and family, a wonderful future husband. So, this holiday season, keep the important things in mind and know that the traffic jam in front of you isn't the worst thing in the world (though in Boston we think that sometimes it can be). Smile.
