This year I've got a lot to be thankful for...
2016 was a big one for me. I got married (twice, once surrounded by friends, and once surrounded by family), moved to a new continent, went to see a therapist to help me with my anxiety for the first time, taught new students, visited 5 continents (America - USA, Asia - Thailand, Africa - Morocco, Europe - Spain, and Australia!), finally am in the process of getting my English teaching credentials and started this blog!
2016 was a spectacular year and I'm positive that 2017 will be equally filled with challenges, exhilarating moments, moments of reflection, losses, gains and self-discovery. I've found someone to keep by my side who loves me, but also motivates me to be a better version of myself.
I'm thankful for all the sacrifices my family has made to get me where I am today and to all my teachers who inspired me to travel, to question, to explore and to learn.
While this year's Thanksgiving won't be my normal event, surrounded by old and new friends or family, it will be taken as a moment to pause and think about all the amazing things in my life.
Happy travels, and Happy Thanksgiving!
