Heart Happy Vol. 3 – Thankful

What’s making my heart happy this week is a whole lotta thankfulness. Maybe it’s a little holiday cheer and the feeling of Thanksgiving right around the corner but I can’t help but feel so thankful this week. As I mentioned last week I have a little bit of news…. next Wednesday is my last day at my full time job. I’m diving head first into self employment (just in time for Black Friday!) and I couldn’t be more excited about it! Following your dreams can be an exciting and scary thing but the more I work, the more I want it and the more motivated I am to go after it. I’m thankful for so much right now but the thing I’m most thankful for at this moment is my people.

My parents who all year have been saying, “that’s great and all but don’t quit your job,” last week told me to follow my heart. And my sweet brother who stops by the shop when he sees my car late at night and asks if there’s anything he can do to help.

My best friend and partner who’s right by my side through everything. The ups and downs of owning a business are very real, lots of late nights, lots and lots of work and more stress than we would like to admit is totally worth it when we’re dancing around after a successful event or high-fiveing after nailing our holiday photoshoot! We work hard, we celebrate hard and there’s no way we would make it without each other.

And all my other besties who inspire me, motivate me and most of all cheer me along. I feel more than blessed to have a group of friends who do nothing but build each other up, help each other out and make me laugh until my stomach hurts.

When I think about what I’m most thankful for every single time it will be my people.  The people who love me and the people I get to love back. My cup overflows.

And as for you, I hope you too have people you’re thankful for this time of year. Make sure to soak them up, tell them you love them and remember to enjoy your time together! Everyone is dealing with all kinds of “stuff” and I encourage you to be a little light to those you love this holiday season! Xo, love bugs!
