Thankful for the Sunset
Thankful for the sunrise
Thankful for the gloomy days
and every time the rain dries
Been feeling a little nostalgic today. The year is almost over, and every year around this time, I start looking back at everything that I was able to do this year. I also try to think back at everything I felt, all I learned, and every dream or goal I had and what I did to get closer to them.
I have made it a goal of mine, to always be thankful for today. Today is a gift, that not everyone has the chance to experience. But for some reason, we are still here, and we got to experience today. Sometimes I think to myself and try to remember the things that I try to avoid, like school presentations or anything that requires me getting out of my comfort zone, I think back to everything that made me feel uncomfortable or sad or even things that have made me doubt in myself, and I realize that I need to start looking at the bigger picture.
To be thankful at all times. It's hard. But it definitely changes our perspective on life.
Last Monday we took a spontaneous trip to big bear, and I had an awesome time! Captured a few memories there. We walked through Big Bear Village and crossed a few streets in an attempt to get candid photos, It was the most hilarious thing because we ended up walking back and forth the entire time. People must have thought we were crazy! We then walked along Big Bear Lake. The sun was just about right, and it was mesmerizing. I can't wait to go back. It's funny too because Big Bear is actually pretty close to where I live, yet I don't go there often. I will definitely need to go back when the ground is filled with snow.
Shoutout to my gorgeous mother-in-law and her friend who are such a joy to be around!
