About Me

I'm an east coast girl making my way through life. I have a love for cooking, fitness, and really anything that can bring me happiness. Living my life for the next day and on a search for whatever my happily ever after may be. Life's too short to be unhappy right? If you navigated your way here, stay awhile! Have a nice day!

Day 3

Day 3...look at me go! I honestly thought I would have taken the lazy way out of this by now but writing about something I'm thankful for each day is actually really refreshing. It puts things in a new perspective I'd say.



Something I'm thankful for is my health. I feel like when you're well and have no sickness or injury you completely take your health for granted. I know that I do. But when you think about it, there are so many people in the world that aren't healthy mentally or physically, and that is very limiting for them. For me, I have no sickness or disability that restricts me from anything. A lot of times I just ignore that I'm lucky for that - but imagine if you couldn't walk or couldn't see, or even if you couldn't really think all too well? It's scary, and it's unfortunate that no one really is thankful for their health until it's too late. For me I don't want to wait until it's too late. I don't want to take my health for granted and then one day be hit with a debilitating sickness. I'm so thankful that I was born healthy and have grown up healthy, only suffering a few injuries and quick sicknesses. I'm thankful that if I want to walk outside on a sunny day I can, and I'm thankful that I can see everything outside and really capture everything in it's natural greatness. I'm thankful that I can breathe on my own, that I can exercise healthily and happily, and that I don't have any problem with my health to worry about everyday. I really do salute people that have a health issue that causes them to miss out on things and that also restricts them from doing certain things. I think those people are so brave that they have become mentally tough enough to endure anything - maybe that's why they are the way they are...because God knew that they had the strength to handle it. Health is something so overlooked and I truly am thankful that I'm healthy and happy, and I hope all of you guys start to value your health more (first step is quitting the tanning beds!) Don't wait until it's too late to value your health - every little step counts along the way.

  1. I like this idea of blogging of what you're thankful for. So true, we often forget about all the things, like health, that we just take for granted. You inspired me to try and eat healthier :)
