I’m thankful for being able to take piano lessons
I am thankful for having four amazing friends to go out with! (I am also thankful for getting a free burger and for the nice guy toasting the bun for me because he felt bad since it was so cold)
I am thankful for being able to enjoy a nice meal out, vegetarian chimichangas
I am thankful for my friend being there for me and walking with me at midnight so I could let out all my steam to her.
And for those snowy days where it literally feels like a winter wonderland.
I am thankful for having a great relationship with my voice teacher. She realizes that I am hard on myself and knows how to raise my spirits.
I am thankful for having people who make me laugh and smile. I am not going to say names, but their presence always gets me happy!

I am thankful for being able to have more volunteer opportunities
I am thankful for my hot coffee in the morning.
These are just a few things and people that I am thankful for. It makes me realize I have so much and even though people may push me down I just need to think of what I do have. When I think back, this week was great, but I know there were a few rough patches. Those rough patches did frustrate me and I have dealt with them slightly, but not fully. I am one who gets scared and backs down. I never want to hurt others, so if someone is upset I usually try and adjust to their wishes. I think it is because I want to make everyone happy, but shouldn't I be doing things to make myself happy?? Obviously I do not want to be selfish and do things just for me, but my happiness is important too. Yes I should think before I do, but my actions should be for me as well.
Jealousy is dangerous and can lead to people bringing you down and trying to control you. This situation has happened to me recently. The worst part of it all is when I look back I did not do anything at all wrong I was just being myself. After I was confronted I felt like I was supposed to change. But I have come to the realization I shouldn't have to change how I act or what I do. I should never feel scared about what others are thinking of me or my actions.
