Hi Everyone!

I hope you guys are having a great Thanksgiving week so far. This week I’ve realized how blessed and thankful i really am. I have such great friends, family, an amazing support system. This year has been very crazy. I’ve had some pretty bad days, but I’ve also had life changing amazing opportunities thanks to all of you guys supporting me throughout the years. I love this time of year, being able to give back and make a difference. Life gets so intense sometimes we forget everything we have and how beautiful life really is. The biggest thing I’ve learned this year is we don’t always get what we want, no matter how much you try for it. Sometimes God has a different plan. If you’re anything like me, it’s very hard to hear someone tell you “No”. When someone says i can’t do something, all i want to do is prove to them i can do anything i set my mind to. Sometimes you need to accept the truth God has a plan and if it’s meant to be it will happen. You can’t force someone to love you, You can’t make someone be nice to you. All you can do is be kind, be the bigger person and move on with your life. I know that’s easier said than done but, you’re worth amazing things. You shouldn’t be wasting your time on someone or something that doesn’t bring you happiness or respect you the way you deserve.

I encourage you to find love within yourself, within your life. This is the time of your life. You’re never too old or too young to make a difference. We’re all special, and different in our own perfect ways. Don’t forget to be grateful even for the little things we take for grated everyday.

Happy Thanksgiving!
