5 Things I am Thankful for #ThankfulThursdays

When 2016 began, I decided to make it my year of Unlearning, and all through it I let go of everything I thought I knew. I was so focused on my mission that I had no wish list in mind.

When I saw this week’s ThankfulThursdays prompt I paused and had to actually rewind to the start of year to think of the things I am thankful for, a wonderful exercise, as I realized I have a lot more than just 5!

But keeping the prompt specifics in mind here are the 5 things I am thankful for:

I am thankful for the year gone by: It was challenging, it was exasperating and as much as I grumbled my way through it, I know I  will look back at it as one of the years I will be grateful for. 2016 has given me fresh perspective, new direction and a wiser outlook.

I went self-hosted: After 12 years on Blogger I made an impulsive decision and within the span of an hour I was the proud owner of my own website. Best decision ever!

I took my Tarot Reading to the next level, by moving from a facebook page to finally getting my website, Card Talk. Do read your Tarot Forecast for 2017 , if you haven’t yet.

I wrote! For 2 back to back daily writing challenges and enjoyed myself thoroughly!

I met so many new people! Some have turned out to be wonderful acquaintances, others into great friends and a few into enemies *grin* but hey, who am I to argue with Sidney Sheldon when he says , ‘To be successful you need friends and to be very successful you need enemies.” *bigger grin*

Thanks to Amrita & Tina for hosting #ThankfulThursdays , writing for which I have become more conscious about the things to be thankful for.

  1. Can I steal the quote .I know it’s Sidney Sheldon’s .But seriously it’s the coolest quote ever.
    For me too 2016 was fantastic. Absolutely impossible. But fantastic.
    Being wiser is the best gift that time gives us.Thank you for being a wonderful friend and writing with me for #Thankful Thursdays

  2. I have concluded that I am an ungrateful person so I guess I would never be able to write posts like these but some of your learnings seemed like a page off my book. the year round up post for me is a lot about writing , for a change and people – as is every year 🙂
    I think as bloggers , every interaction with people makes us better , stronger , wiser or if nothing else – helps us make a connection.. wish you many new connections in 2017 and more reasons to be thankful for !
