This fall has flown by and it feels like Thanksgiving came out of nowhere. I have so much to be thankful for this year. The usual friends, family, home, and health, but this year also includes some unique things:
- I’m thankful that I had the opportunity to try my dream job. It didn’t work out, but not everyone even gets a chance to try. I’m grateful I was in a position where I could take the risk.
- I’m grateful for the lessons I learned this past summer while I was unemployed. It was truly a time to focus on myself and rebuild. While looking for a job of course.
- I’m always thankful for my friends but this year they really came through for me. People came out of the woodwork and supported and encouraged me through my job search. And you all! The readers! So many of you came through with words of encouragement when I needed it the most last summer! I know I say it all the time, but I really am surrounded by amazing people.
- This blogger community! Last fall I attended the MN Blogger Conference for the first time and discovered that there is a large and amazing community of bloggers all around me! Since then I’ve been able to attend several events, make new friends, and collaborate on projects such as MinsgameBOSS. Speaking of that community…
