What I'm Thankful For This Year

Reflecting on a year that was, to be honest, really challenging.

* This is my last post before taking a break for the holiday. We’ll be back with more Spilled Milk on Monday, December 5. *

Taking a moment to share my gratitude with you all. It’s been a tough year for me, and for a lot of people. I’m always working toward a regular gratitude practice— taking moments to recognize the great things in my life, of which there are many.

But I also want to acknowledge those who the holidays are hard for. People who feel “othered” in a room full of relatives. Those who are alone this year, or are missing the person/people they love the most. I see you. I am you.

I want you to know: It gets better. In the meantime, reach out to a friend. Do something kind for someone else. Take care of yourself.

Big hugs to you all.
