A hell of a lot to be thankful for.

It’s Thanksgiving.

And that’s got me thinking.

I’ve got a lot to be thankful for.

Like really, A LOT.

Last year I was sick and this year I’m not.

I mean, for the past decade I was sick.

Basically my whole life I was sick.

Very sick.

Horribly sick.

And now I’m not.

I try to explain what that feels like to people and always

ALWAYS

fall short.

The best I can come up with is it feels like I just got superpowers.

Wicked superpowers.

Try to shoot me

and the bullets will bounce right off.

I went from feeling like I was on death’s door everyday

to having fucking superpowers.

So yeah, that’s a lot to be thankful for.

I wake up everyday with energy.

With joy.

With superpowers.

My house is always clean now

(because I have the energy to clean it.)

My laundry is always done

(because I have the energy to do it.)

My dishes are done

My kitchen is clean

My house smells nice

I have a part time job

I’m going to school full-time

AND

I just wrote a novel

(all because I have superpowers now.)

I no longer want to kill myself.

I no longer feel sad for no reason.

I no longer feel anxious for no reason.

I no longer feel mad.

Or crazy.

I’m happy.

Genuinely Happy.

AND

I have superpowers.

I have a partner that I love.

I have two cats.

One dog.

A great, big, supportive family.

A mom.

A dad.

A sister.

A brother.

A sister-in-law.

A brother-in-law.

And a whole lot of extended family.

Seriously, the best family in the whole world.

I love them.

I would die for them.

They are awesome.

Did I mention I have a great family?

A supportive partner.

I’m feeling pretty lucky.

And I have superpowers

.

What are you thankful for?
