A little late....but still THANKFUL.....

I realize this is a bit late for a Thanksgiving post but time has definitely escaped me..It always seems to happen to me about this time of year....I get swept up in the hustle and bustle of back to back holidays and lose all track of time..However this post has been on my mind even prior to Thanksgiving and I didn't want to forget to post about a few of the things that I am thankful for in my life....First and health...I remember when I was a little girl my grandpa would tell me, "if you don't have your health, then you have NOTHING". He would remind me of this occasionally throughout my teenage years and into my adult life..I would always nod and think "yeah yeah," but never really put too much thought into it until recent years when I became obsessed with fitness. He was right...You could be the poorest person, but if you are healthy you are richer than the wealthiest man. Having your health is everything! And I am so thankful to be mostly healthy...This saying that I heard years ago from my grandpa is always in the back of my head, and on days when I struggle to be active I can hear the voice louder and it pushes me to get moving! Along with my health, I am so thankful for the loved ones that are in my life, be it family or friends. I have some very amazing people in my life, that each have something to offer and make my life that much richer. Beyond that I am very thankful for my job, especially in today's world where employment is not guaranteed, nothing is definite, and so many are barely getting by paycheck to paycheck. I am thankful for my drive and passion in fitness, and that I finally found my calling, and am determined to be an advocate for it and contribute in a positive way to society to impact as many lives as I can......I am thankful for all the moments that have led me to this moment and this place in my life to share with the people I love. I am just THANKFUL for all the blessings I have been given......big and small
