Happy Thanksgiving! / by Chel Wolverton

1558887280_00cbdb46dc.jpg Things I am thankful for:

My family, for understanding who I am and supporting what I'm doing. It doesn't get any better than having a clear understanding with your parents and know that they support you choices.

I'm thankful for good friends among them Whitney Hoffman, Bryce Moore, Anji Bee, Ed Roberts, and Bill Walker.

I'm thankful for Chris Penn and his wonderful mentorship, a year ago, wow. Thanks for waking me up and giving me a hard shove in the right direction.

I'm thankful for knowing Matthew and having his music in my life. It's gotten me through so many moments and amazed me to work for him and with him over the past few months.

I'm thankful for @pistachio, @fastag and their two daughters. She happily brought me here and had faith in me and what I wanted to do enough to support it by being my first major client. <3

I'm thankful for processes and the changes that have happened this year. Even the extremely painful ones that have taken a part of my heart. The difference in myself is pretty amazing and though it took a lot of hard work to get here I don't regret a second. Not even those days with four hours of sleep. ;)

I'm even thankful for Twitter, which has helped me open up and make others laugh and gives me the ability to help others on a daily basis and interact with a group that is a part of my life now. Thank you for making my conversation flow.

And with that I'm thankful for social media and the community that it has formed. Giving, exchanging ideas, expanding on them, acting on them, helping others, pushing each other to believe the difference we can make and loving each moment.

Thankful for tiny fingers, warm hugs, sweet kisses, laughter, and those moments that make all the difference in the world in life when we share them with our family and friends.

If you've benefitted half as much as I have this year from the changes in your life, you are a very lucky person.
