Thankful Thinking

Thursday, November 28, 2013

Since I am going home  for thanksgiving in 4 DAYS. I decided to do a "Thankful Thinking" post- and what does that mean? It means I am just going to keep this post as a draft till Thanksgiving (and today is Friday November 22), filling it with as many things as I can for which I am thankful for then I will post it on thanksgiving! So here I go making my list. Which I have a feeling will be a long one.

  • My Faith- God, Jesus, Angels

  • My good health so far this school year
  • My phone so I can call and text my mommy everyday
  • My laptop. Its a necessity to me and i am thankful for the hours i had at work to be able to pay for it
  • my favorite blanket that my grandma made me. Its my favorite and I am under it right now!
  • My bible. This should go up^ further next to church, but these aren't really in any order!!
  • My legs- for how strong they are and for the fact they carry me when I am rowing or urging or just walking to class
  • my arms & fingers and hands
  • I am thankful for having awesome college professors 
  • Hot cocoa
  • hot water for long showers after a intense workout 
  • HAIRTIES- so silly but with long hair its true 
  • I am thankful that my family is doing well (without me ahahha) 
  • I am thankful that my Grandma is doing better with her health 
  • For random "I miss/love you" texts from my good friends from home
  • I am thankful for my artistic capabilities
  • for the workouts that I do everyday for rowing
  • I am thankful my body is getting used to handling the workouts its now experiencing 
  • Sports bras and yoga pants are a must to be thankful for as a athlete 
  • headphones/earbuds 
  • MUSIC <3 <3 <3 <3 I would not survive workouts, or pretty much anything with out it 
  • Speaking of music I am thankful for my Hearing!
  • And my sight. Because even though being up at 5 is annoying when we get done around 7:10 its always super pretty outside 
  • my Thinking capabilities- where would I be without them?!
  • bed mattresses. So comfy and I appreciate them after I lay on a comfy bed after a intense workout 
  • my rowing coaches- they are super nice and very motivational 
  • song lyrics that seem to put my life into perspective 
  • my stuffed bear Valentine. (I have had him since 6th grade and he is something that I can't sleep without.)
  • the adorable ugly doll my best friend gave me a couple weeks ago. He's so weird but cute at the same time! 
  • I am thankful for being sore because it shows that I am actually doing something right for my body
  • I am thankful for the fashion industry in itself because It means I have a job with my degree 
  • I am thankful for nail polish- because I can't stand when my nails are not painted! 
  • I am thankful for my memories. Some good, and some bad but those moments made me who I am so for that I should be thankful 
  • My dorm room. Its small yeah. BUT I am about 98% sure that it could be ALOT worse if I had gone to a different college 
  • I am thankful for MAIL. I LOVE Getting mail while I am here at school. Checking my mailbox and having there be something inside just makes me so happy! 
  • Transportation. From getting home in our car to being able to go on the bus from school to the mall- I am thankful that its there and a safe way of getting around the city
  • Friendship. I feel like this goes along with having friends but yeah- for example my roommate and I had a bit of a argument yesterday but today (Sat. Nov 23) we are fine and like even took the bus and went to the mall today and it felt like we hadn't even argued about anything! I am thankful that we aren't still in angry mode. Ya know? 
  • Colorful pens! <3 Keep me organized and everything looking pretty 
  • My agenda- where would I be without you?

  • The feeling I get after a tough work out (my 5K today- Monday, Nov 25). The satisfied, exhausted feeling that I crave 
  • Germ-X... enough said
  • water bottles. I never thought much of this till I got here to school. The water in my dorm doesn't taste the best, and the water fountain I really like is a long walk down a couple of hallways in the dorm. So starting in October my parents have been buying me cases of water that I keep under my bed, and I normally drink 1-2 bottles a day which is good because you need to drink lots of water- but as a athlete they are SUPER amazing to have handy. I've gone through I think maybe 4 cases of 24 since october and AHH I just love having the water bottles so much. YES- I DO recycle them too :) hehe
  • I am thankful for the opportunity to row- its so weird of me to keep saying 'athlete' this and 'athlete' that but i mean... I am... its just weird to say. And So therefore I am thankful that I was able to join the team and am capable of keeping up with the other girls & I am just so thankful that I can really dive into this sport (HAHA) and do well in it. In high school I did sports yeah, but i never felt the way about those sports as the way that I feel about rowing. Its just so incredible for me and its crazy amazing. 
  • My voice- I had a speech today. -.- UGH but I am thankful that I have a voice to give a speech even though I dislike speeches ALOT 
  • My ever evolving case of wanderlust because it has me yearning for new things and new adventures that are bound to come my way 
  • The blisters that are showing on my hands where my oar sits. Its showing me that I am working hard at rowing. 
  • I am thankful for my Grandparents- My grandpas face when I gave him his birthday present tonight was priceless. 
  • For my BLOG & WONDERFUL readers!! <3 <3 <3 <3

Okay so it is now thanksgiving day! So HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!

Hope your day is wonderful- enjoy the time with your families :)
