Personal Diary: Happy Thanksgiving from Taylor

Wow! What a year it has been. I could remember like it was yesterday that I was sitting in an old office cubicle praying for more adventure in my life. (Like, really praying!) Needless to say, 2017 has been full of adventures, both good and bad.

As I was thinking to myself late last night and pondered over how I really feel like I have reached the place in life where I am living in the present and doing what I am made to do. (It only took 26 years, but patience is a virtue!) For so long, I was trying hard to find my place in this world and I was looking for it in all of the wrong places, people and things. About a year and a half ago, I decided to change that mindset and go for what makes me truly happy and to also just LIVE!

This Thanksgiving, I would love to express my gratitude to 50 things I love about my life. I hope you enjoy this blog post and that it gives you some inspiration to take the time out of your busy day to think about what you are most thankful for in your own life.
