Thanksgiving and a little reflection

By Veronica Basulto

It doesn’t feel like Thanksgiving. Those were the words that popped into my head when I first opened my eyes. I’m not living where I want to live, I’m not where I want and not where I should be as far as a career. I have to work… This sucks!

It didn’t end there. I got up to the dog pad dirty, the room a mess and I didn’t magically lose weight overnight, at least that’s what my reflection told me, and I was later reminded when I got out of the shower an hour later. Somebody STOP ME!!!

Why would I want to share this? Because it’s real. There are a large majority of women out there that can totally relate! I have to say that most of my days I wake up and feel happy. I’ve been down some rough roads and I’m sure you must have to. I’ve learned from some amazing people along the way. A lot of garbage has been dumped into my subconscious, but these individuals unknowingly counteracted that.

I sat back this afternoon and turned my thought’s around.

I am grateful that I woke up this morning.

I have a bed, warmth, and clean pajamas.

I have a kitchen to cook in, and food to cook.

I have a job that I get to go to.

I have the opportunity to continue persevering my career.

My health is good, and the list goes on.

We’ve got this ladies. There are blessing all around us and sometimes it just takes a little reflection to realize it.

Your sister and friend in the journey,
