Only a week till I finish 365 days of thankfulness. I’m starting to reflect on this time and how beautiful it has been to see things in a different light. It’s time that I be thankful for a journey of thankfulness as I draw closer to day 365.
Some boys I know go on a trip once a year. This time they went down to Adelaide and made their way across the southern parts of Vic and back up the east coast to Syd. Their stories make me laugh and from what I can tell they have a very good time. I think for their own benefit primarily, they film their travels and make them into a mini movie. These boys put on a backyard premiere to show us their travels, wearing suits and all. I was impressed and thankful.
their trip last year. i didnt know them then but i think its pretty similar
I’m going to be home for a while now. There is going to be a little bit more routine, which I think is kinda exciting. That’s something to be thankful for.
It’s beautiful when family is not just a blood tie but rather a deep friendship. I got to share the night of my 355th day of thankfulness with my cousins, Monique and Simone. They gave me every reason to be thankful. We grew up with each other and I love them to the moon and back. The night was so much fun. The typical girls night…two chick flicks, plenty of chatting, ice-cream, lollies, and a great place to stay (Thanks Nan!!). I definitely had a good night. Thankful
There are people in this world with the most incredible hearts that seek to help and connect with the people placed around them. When these certain people recognise their gifts and see to it that the people around them are loved, good things happen. Chaplains are usually these kind of people. When a chaplain is present, they are there to care for the people around and tend to any ‘God’ issues. It’s a hard job to deal with people’s emotional and spiritual struggles and I have a lot of respect for those who put their hand up for such a task. Thankful for the hearts of such people
Losing hurts a lot and I lost again in my QS heat. Not my best contest ever. The pain comes from knowing that I could do better. It isn’t my surfing ability that’s the problem, it’s my own head. I don’t have that competitive drive. When I surf a heat I constantly second guess myself and always kind of shrink back. I haven’t wanted to go surfing just for fun for too long. Competing was making it feel like more of a chore. So now I am thankful that I am walking away from the contest for a little while. Who knows…maybe in a year, or two I might have another go but for now I just want to surf because I love it.
i surfed my pro junior heat and lost with one second to go. If I was the other girl I would have been so happy but this time I was the one to leave the beach disappointed. It was my last pro junior ever and I am pretty sure that is my worst result ever. First round knock out with nothing impressive to show. I guess that happens sometimes. At least I went out with a bang.
Surfest happens at Merewhether beach once a year. It’s a big contest, with a draw filled with big names. The first day of the event I didn’t have to compete. It was nice to just watch, chill out and have a couple of free surfs with no pressure. Thankful
Valentines day is a beautiful day. A day set aside to express love is one to be thankful for. I just hope that all the roses, chocolate hearts and fluffy toys that were given are part of an ongoing love. This was the first year of my entire life that I have had a valentine. I am 19 years old. It was a nice change and I am thankful.
