Thankful Thursday

Today I want to write about being thankful. It's something I am every single day because when you've gone through stuff you start to focus on what you have, instead of what you could have. Sounds stupid maybe, but I am really thankful and I do think that's based on what I've gone through in my life.

To start things off; I am thankful for the family I was born into, and the family that I've chosen. "Friends are the family you choose", and I have one amazing friend who I see as a perfect sister. Rebecca, I love you every single day and I'm so happy that you're in my life.
My family has always had ups and downs, mostly downs it seems like, but I am grateful for the members I've chosen to keep close to me. Some biological members have chosen to step back and go their own thing, which is absolutely fine, but it's hard to know that someone you used to be close with now sees you as not enough. However, this makes me even more grateful for the ones who have stuck around. Mom, Sebastian, Polly and dad; you all make my life better. Sometimes it's not always easy being close, but you all contribute with different parts that makes my life complete. And I really love you for it.

Polly, the bestest girl to ever exist. Not a day goes by where I don't think about you every moment I'm awake. You're the light that I look for as soon as I wake up and you're the last thing I hug when I go to bed, and my life got a whole new meaning when we got you. You're the reason I wake up every morning. And I know that you won't read this because you're not as smart as I am, but I also want to tell you that I created a youtube channel as well as an instagram account for you that I'll share in the next post.

My Asperger's. It's a weird thing to be thankful for but I think it kept me out of a lot of trouble growing up. I mean, it totally sucks, but there are some perks as well. For instance, after looking at the show that I mentioned yesterday, I could see myself in a different light. I've never been out at night, never gotten drunk or hung out with friends over night, haven't gone to a party or go clubbing (I'm sounding pretty boring), because I am not that social. I don't seek company, I am not interested in getting to know more people. And that sucks, but at the same time I've never sold drugs or gone to jail for thrills or abused someone because of group pressure. And that I'm very thankful for.

Based on how the world is right now, I am incredibly grateful for my bed, food and roof over my head. Many, many people don't have that security or luxury, and I am very thankful that I do. It can always be better, but it can always be worse as well.
