What are you thankful for?

As Thanksgiving approaches, one will reflect on what they are thankful for. There are always the essentials: food, family, time and life, but each person has their own individual things to be thankful for.

Starting at a young age, I was interested in photography. It began with my father handing me his camera while out hiking. Now, I work full time and support myself with what I love doing most: shooting photos. If it wasn’t for the guidance, gifts and grace I was shown, I may not have discovered my passion, pastime and paying career.

Photography has taken me places and taught me to look at the world in a different way. It has also allowed me to pursue my studies more voraciously, as I have more time than I would if I had a typical part-time job. I am truly thankful for the opportunities I was given and for the efforts of those in my life that have brought me to this point. We all have something to be thankful for, no matter how small, so look inward.

The smallest things are sometimes the biggest ones to be thankful for.
