A Time To Be Thankful

I am incredibly thankful for a lot of things this year. One, I’m thankful that I’m here. I was watching a show called Lost Girl. There’s a line from a character who talks about how having life is so special. You have memories good, bad, and everything in between, but you have them. You have a chance to make them, no matter what you’re going through. No matter your hardship. You are living. I am living and that in itself is something to be grateful for. That one line changed me. Of course, I didn’t write the line word for word. it is paraphrased. It is definitely food for thought.
Then, I came across this quote. You open a door for someone. They respond with the common thank you. It is a sign of appreciation and respect in the act itself. It is the recognition of kindness being noticed. Showing others that they are thought of.. and appreciated is so incredibly special. Then you have the recognition of what someone else is doing for you. It’s always always always important to show others gratitude. It’s important to let them know that any act of kindness no matter how big or small is appreciated. It’s something that maybe is lacking–our outward appreciation of the positive actions done to us by others.
It’s Thanksgiving here. And I love reminding myself to tell people what they mean to me. It’s a practice that has given me a lot of meaning. It softens the soul, knowing that others care for each other. We are all meaningful and we are all important to others–even strangers. I rely a lot on strangers, family, and friends. There is no way that I couldn’t have all those people on my mind. Sometimes the people who have helped me the most in the last year has been complete strangers in my real life. People helping me into wheel chairs, opening doors, and helping me in any way they can. I’ve been helped by medical staff. I’ve been helped by friends who visit to raise my spirits. Even inworld, I see that same kindness. So I try to practice gratitude as often as I can. This year has definitely taught me that people help and aid others, even when they themselves are struggling and sometimes I am never aware of those struggles. I had a cancer patient open a door for me. There was no way that I could help her, other than show her my appreciation. The only thing she asked of me was to pay it forward to others. And I have every intention to do so.
So in the spirit of gratitude, I want to thank the designers and creators who work so incredibly hard to create these beautiful items featured in this photo. I want to start off with this fantastic dress. I can not gush enough about this dress. I love it… I really do. I think this may be one of my favorite dresses. I plan on wearing this again quite a bit. It’s just gorgeous and the detail is beautifully done. You can find it at Equal10 by Eliavah and it’s called Serenade. My hair is from SINTIKLIA and called Gigi, which is available at collabor88. You’ll have to hurry though, because before you know it.. the next round will begin. My flower crown is by Lode and it’s called Lilu, and you can find it at this latest round of the chapter four. Ali (the blond) is wearing the same flower crown, but in a different color, She is also wearing a top from moon elixir and it’s called night bloom, which is available at this months romp. It’s a really cute set with options to color the straps and remove the pom poms. Ali’s hair is from Rama and you can find it at Equal 10. There are some really great events and sales going on with black friday and a lot of them have already started. So get out there and bring a friend. Let the shopping begin.

Be kind to one another and show your thanks this holiday season. Happy Thanksgiving ♥♥♥
Cheers,
Violet XOXO
