Happy Thanksgiving, to fellow Americans!
Embarassingly enough, it took me all day to remind myself what to be thankful for. I was in a pretty down mood as several attempts to make Thanksgiving dinner plans Thursday (today), Friday or Sunday all fell through due to work scheduling and conflicts. Along with a terrible work schedule this week, the sky decided to dump buckets of water and get me uncomfortably damp for work. Just little things that accumulated throughout the day made me bummed out and I felt like I had no one to support me or vent to, especially when it is a holiday you're supposed to be with family and friends.
Anyways, I gotta snap out of it. Today was just "one of those days."
So, my list of what I'm thankful for:
1. Health. I still have the immune system like I'm the runt of the litter, but I'm still here!
2. Family and Friends. They may be thousands of miles away, but regardless, I have them in the first place. I also have some wonderful friends in Singapore.
3. I'm in Singapore. How many people can say they are taking a risk and staying abroad?
4. I've been able to travel.
I'll try to focus on the good right now. The holidays seem to be a rough time for me being away from home. I think I might just have to accept that I won't have a festive holiday season this year.
