"Thankful" (feat. Amoretto Shoes)
Happy Happy Thanksgiving. This is my 2nd Thanksgiving in this diary of mine. How the year has flown by so fast! I have so much to be thankful for. Really, you and I already know so much has happened this past year. What a blessing everything has been. This is the first year that we are not celebrating the holiday. Listen, my family is tired, we are so busy, and we would rather save whatever energy Thanksgiving would use up and pour that into Christmas. I am going to Black Friday with Dash still. That is one tradition that we are keeping alive. Other than that, we'll be sleeping and watching tv. I don't eat meat, so i'm all good with not having food here. I will miss the family this year, but hey, we had 3 parties last month and Halloween. Christmas is coming and we can see each other then. That doesn't mean I am not thankful for them. I am, I truly am. It's so weird being apart from the people I love. When i'm in SF for half of the week, I miss the kids and when i'm with the kids I miss my life with Courtney in the city. It's bittersweet, but I do get to have the best of both worlds right now. One day I will not have that. So i'm cherishing those moments. I've been thinking about everything that I've done since last Thanksgiving. The 22nd is an important date for me, as you know. I was having so much relationship problems last year and it was one bloated and depressing Thanksgiving. It is something that my anniversary actually falls on Thanksgiving this year. We are still not in the same location, but at least we are at a much better place than we were last year. I love you so much. We are figuring things out, but we are doing it together, even if it is from afar. I'm happy, you know. Well you already do, I wrote all about it on the page before this. But still, nonetheless, I am happy. I am grateful for the turmoil of my relationship that led me to surrender in March, that led me here. I am at the most raw and real point in my life, so far. I love walking around SF during Thanksgiving time. This is the first year that I actually stop to look around me. Everyone just seems so loving here around this time of year. I am thankful to have been welcomed with open arms to the SF social influencer community. A year ago, no one knew who I was. Now, I would say I built my name up over the last year and got mrdombaza though the grapevine. I can't really remember last Thanksgiving. All I remember was it wasn't memorable. This year obviously won't be, but at least i'll have black Friday. I did however take the kids to see Wreck It Ralph 2 today. That's kind of a celebration isn't it? I'm thankful for that and the amazing princess scene. Really, that was everything. I'm thankful for all the good that has come along this year. From adventures with Courtney, to becoming best friends with one of the coolest guys, my brother Dan, to getting mentored by Sam and expanding this world of mine, to working with some big brands and companies, to mentoring guys like my little bro Steven. Things like that, i'm so thankful for. I'm thankful that we have a roof over our head, considering all the fires around us. I'm thankful for another year fought with this illness. I'm thankful for a less drama filled and more love filled year. I'm thankful to be here writing that I am thankful. Because if things didn't change in March, this would be a whole other page. I can't imagine an alternate reality, where none of this happened. It would feel so weird, so empty. So thank you life, for finally giving me chance to feel thankful. I've always been thankful, but this year, I can hold onto it a little more tighter. I wonder what next year will look like. Will P be here? Where will we be? Where will I be in life? I don't know. I want to know, but in order for that to happen, I need to keep moving forward and gaining new things and people to be thankful for. My mind, my heart, and my eye opened up so much this year and I am just going to continue doing that moving forward. I'm thankful for this outlet that I have, this safe space where I can jot down my thoughts and share them in a personal, but not over barring way. It's been a good year and i'll say it one last time, i'm thankful for it all.
We'll see what happens now that Christmas is basically here.
It's about to get festive and even more thankful. I'm ready for my heart to feel so full of more love. Onwards.
