Happy Thanksgiving from the Great White North!
As I sit here dabbing with my nectar collector (There is no better way, I’m hooked), inhaling a tasty Golden Goat hybrid shatter and coughing my lungs out, I take pause to reflect on my last year as I wait for my eyes to regain focus.
At first in my sober haze I didn’t think I have much to be thankful for. To be honest this has be a year of planning and not one of progress. Which is hard for me, I’ve been a busy fella and haven’t had a stagnant year since I was only 8. No joke.
But as my eyes clear after that first dab, I find myself looking at my beautiful fiancee of 6.5 years. If I have anything to be grateful for, it’s her. After my trucking accident last winter its been a difficult road to recovery, emotionally and mentally more so than physically. And even with her own personal, and often overwhelming issues, she pushes through and tries her best to help me. No matter how much I refuse to admit that i need it…
She’s not a risk taker, but I am. She has dealt with the reality that every job I have had, there was always a very real risk of not coming home. And the one time I almost didn’t, she still stayed and supported me, no matter the next venture.
I promised her I would find a safer job. So what did I choose? Entrepreneurship! Cause that’s a safe, secure option right?! We are only financially recovering from my last business being hijacked from us 6 years ago. Like I said, I’m a risk taker, it’s in my blood. She supports me regardless of the risk I take and the constant anxiety that comes with it.
I love her for it.
I’m going to be successful because she deserves it.
I’m thankful for her because of it.
I would love to hear what everybody else is thankful for this October. I’m sure a lot of you outdoor guys are pretty thankful right about now eh?
