Thankful Thursday: Carbmonster Guest Post

Good morning!  Today is the last day of vacation.  I know, super sad.  However, I do have one more awesome guest post for you from one of my favorite bloggers - Katie at The Carbmonster (seriously the best blog name ever).  

I love reading Katie's honest and hilarious posts.  I really feel like I know her in real life.  <3

I will see you guys tomorrow with a vacation recap and more pictures of a baby on a beach than you thought were humanly possible.  

Thanks Katie!

Thanks for asking me to guest post for Thankful Thursday while you're on the road.  I love coming to get my daily dose of Ina!  Those sweet cheeks always make me smile. Writing a Thankful Thursday post made me realize how much I take for granted all the awesome blessings I have in my life!  It is definitely good for the heart to slow down and take time to be thankful! Here's my list (I'm going to limit it to 5 or we'd be here all day!):
{1} Family.
Buddy, the 120 pound lapdog.
My biggest supporters, the ones who catch me when I fall and lift me back up.  And my Bud, my cuddlebug.  Best things in life: free hugs and wet puppy noses.  
{2} Health.
I spend so much time focusing on the outside, I forget how thankful I should be that I am healthy.  Time to love my body instead of criticizing it.  
 
{3} Financial stability.
Finally paid off my credit card after four years of drowning in interest charges.  I'm still in shock when I see that zero balance (and have to resist making it rain with dollar bills).
{4} Job.
I really don't realize how lucky I am to have job security.  Even with government furloughs and other instability, I have always felt like my company will take care of me (which is a huge difference from the large corporation I used to work for).  Even though I'm not hopping out of bed to get to work every morning, I will be more thankful to sit at that desk!
{5} Blogging.
I've been struggling with depression for several years and it's led to a huge battle with using food to hurt myself.  Instead of keeping everything bottled up, I've been able to use the blog to journal and learn more about myself, the things I need to work on, and learn to love myself at any size.  
The most amazing gift has been all of the support I've found through my bloggy friends!  I never feel judged, but accepted unconditionally.  This community is awesome <3

What are you thankful for?

  1. Those are great things to be thankful for! Financial stress can make life pure poop. I'm so happy for you that you've gotten or of that debt.
