I am feeling thankful for my fiancé Bredan Fallis who showers me with love and support. With everything going on in the world I am grateful to have my friends and family who during the holidays share the same values and morals. I am thankful for my nephew Ikhyd as he is pure joy to be around. I am thankful to my girls here at HBFIT who work around the clock writing, exploring and living the wellness movement that is #HBFIT.
For me Thanksgiving is so much more than a day dedicated to good eats, it’s a day where I try my best to remind myself to step back and be grateful for the life I live. I am so grateful for my family and friends. I am so lucky to have people in my life that love me unconditionally. I am so thankful for my job, I am blessed to be able to work with people who inspire me everyday to be smarter and work harder. I am thankful to be able to live my life how I want to, a gift that is often over looked. I am so blessed and will try harder to be more grateful everyday of the year and not just take this one day to be thankful.
In such a fast-paced city like New York, it’s sometimes hard to stay aware of reality. I am so thankful that my family and friends encourage me to keep my head in the sky with my feet firmly planted on the ground. They push me to be my best while always reminding me of where I came from and how to be a good person.
I am also so grateful to have moved into a new apartment with my best friend Genevieve. Relocating is always unsettling but I’m so lucky to have ended up in the place that I am now with my favorite person.
Last but not least, I am so grateful to Hannah and HBFIT for allowing me to help run an operation founded on the celebration of balance, wellness and inspiring women leaders.
Wow – what a year! 2015 has given me so much to be thankful for. Every day, I look around and feel so blessed to have a roof over my head, clothes on my back and an opportunity to further my education in the greatest city in the world…and I know I wouldn’t be here without my support system. I’m so fortunate to have an amazing family that supports me through thick and thin – especially my mother who answers every stressed/excited/upset phone call. My friends, all from different backgrounds and even different continents, whose own hard work and dedication to make this world a better place and inspire me every day. I’m so blessed to wake up every morning knowing that no matter what happens, I have people who have my back through life’s many obstacles.
