“Gratitude Unlocks the Fullness of Life.”

Thankful Thursday Week 4 is here! This week was VERY busy. The week before my finals. A CRAZY week at work with our Spring Auction on Saturday. Overall it was a GREAT week, just very busy, but I enjoyed it and was able to catch up on sleep at the end of the week.

Thankful Thursday Week 4

Monday, April 17th, 2017

Today I am thankful for those who believe in me. Most of you probably don’t know, but video production is my main passion. I LOVE blogging and sharing my thoughts through written words. However ultimately video and film is what I really want to pursue (hence my major being film and media studies).

I haven’t started sharing any of my film work because it just isn’t where I want it to be yet. I still don’t have a nice camera and am saving towards that goal (hopefully very soon!). Then I will be starting my YouTube channel and sharing my journey with all of you.

A lot of people don’t really understand my passion and the goals I have. They don’t think they are realistic or achievable for a small town girl like me. Well today I had a long talk with my boss (who has worked in the film industry for a long time) and hearing from him that he believes in me is HUGE. I am now doing a video project for the him and the radio station I work at and am so excited!

Lesson Learned: Those who don’t understand your passion may doubt your goals, not because of who you are but because they don’t get it. Ignore them and show them that you are more than capable! Surround yourself with those who do believe in you and those who continue to push and inspire you!

Today I am thankful for progress! I hit 1,000 total views on my blog today. I know that is not very good for 3.5 months of blogging, but I am so proud of myself. My progress is steadily growing and even if it is very slowly, I am still so happy and thankful! I have learned SO much in these past 3.5 months with so much more to learn. So excited for what the future has to bring!

Lesson Learned: Any progress is still progress and is always better than nothing. I have a hard time comparing myself to others, but have been focusing on competing with myself instead. Every month I have improved and that is what matters! I am better than I was yesterday. <3

Today I am thankful for rain. Now I absolutely LOVE sunshine, but rain once in a while is SO relaxing. We haven’t had rain in so long and we don’t really get it that often. I enjoy storms and rainy days.

Lesson Learned: Some days the weather sucks and sometimes it is “perfect”. Either way, we can’t control it. Enjoy the beauties of each season and all-weather.

Today I am thankful for a place to go home to. This week has been CRAZY at work. Extra hours, busy ALL day long, just plain crazy. Having a place to go home and finally relax is just an amazing feeling. It’s often something I overlook, but I really am so grateful for it.

Lesson Learned: There are SO many things to be grateful for on a daily basis. Having a home is a BLESSING.

Today I am thankful for the ability to have a job. I had to work an extra 3 hours today and 5 hours tomorrow, on Saturday morning… GROSS. However, I am lucky enough to even have a job. I know multiple people who don’t have jobs for various reasons and if it was up to them they would have one. Yet it is still something I overlook every day.

Lesson Learned: Again there are SO many things to be grateful for everyday. Having a job and the ability to have a job is a BLESSING. Even though I complain about my job often, I still need to be grateful on the daily!

Today I am thankful for traditions. I was able to be a part of a long tradition for the first time and I also took part in a repeating tradition that my brother and I have had for years.

This morning I participated in my first Radio Auction at work. It was “organized chaos” and surprisingly I had a lot of fun. I enjoy that kind of fast paced environment.

After work I headed to my parents to meet up with my brother. We headed to Minnesota to the iMax theater to see The Fate of the Furious. We go see each new movie of the series in the iMax theater, now that we are older. When we were younger we just saw them at the theater haha.

Lesson Learned: Value every tradition, big or small. They are a comforting thing in life that we should be grateful for.

Today I am thankful for my immediate family. I’m always thankful for them, but today I especially was. I stayed the night at my parents last night after the movie. Slept in. Then enjoyed my coffee and talked with my mom. Then I cooked out with my dad and brother for lunch. It was a really relaxing day and I loved it.

Lesson Learned: Enjoy time with your family every chance you get and cherish every moment!
