Member Update: Saying Thank You


With Thanksgiving having just passed, and the year quickly coming to a close, I think it’s fitting to take some time to reflect on what you are thankful for and who you are thankful to… and then to say thank you!

I’ll go first…

This year has had some definite bumpy spots. Some very trying moments for the people I love most. And some of them have left me wondering if there were things I could have done differently. But then, when I really dig into what’s happening, I realize that I’m lucky. Hard times happen. They happen to everyone no matter how nailed down and responsible they are. And I’m blessed to have people in my life who trust me enough to help them manage their burdens. I’m so very thankful for that.

When people you care about struggle, it isn’t easy. And I’m also blessed to have some wonderful people in my life who reach out to me regularly to make sure that I’m taking care of myself. I’m thankful for each and every one of them.

Professionally, I have some awesome and amazing people who routinely push me to take risks, believe in myself, and strive to hit my full potential. I mean… how lucky am I?!

Like I said, I think it’s a good thing to actually say thank you to those people who have helped you out in the past year.

And on that note, I want to say thank you to you… the person reading this. I love being part of the Wealthy Web Writer community and I appreciate you for being here, for reading my ramblings, and most of all, for having the courage to go after your dreams. It isn’t always easy, but it’s a beautiful, brave thing to do.

All right, your turn… in the comments below, share what you’re thankful for in this past year.

  • I am thankful for family. Family is why I get up every day. I am grateful for the love they share with me and each other.
    I am thankful for the work which sustains us month after month.
    I am thankful for my spouse and all the hard work she put forth to make our family & life in general what it is for us.
    I have much gratitude for the very close friends I have. I don’t have a lot of friends but we are close and have been for decades.
    I am thankful for the writing opportunity that AWAI has introduced me too.
    I am not a paid writer yet; but I will be with the help & opportunities brought to us through AWAI.

  • Grateful to family and friends for their unflagging support and love.
    Grateful to live where I do and wake up every morning to drink in a beautiful view in all its moodiness.
    Grateful that I found AWAI and have become a learning maniac under their professional guidance. Thanks to all the people involved for putting up with me!
    Grateful for my health, this second career as a copywriter, and the all the opportunities that are out there.
    Grateful for this supportive group and your willingness to share. Thank you!

  • I wake up with an attitude of gratitude! I am thankful that although I lost my home and everything back in 2017 during Hurricane Harvey that I am still pushing forward! I am grateful for the things that I have and even for the things that I had if only for a short period of time. I take time out to enjoy the moments……such as watching a butterfly float by or seeing my granddaughter’s eyes light up when we come to visit! Although I am struggling financially right now I know that it is only temporary. In the bible in Ecclesiastes 3:1 it says ” To everything there is a season and a time and purpose under the heaven”! Just like the winter, spring, summer, and fall the things I go through won’t last forever. This is why I’m thankful every day! Even on a cloudy rainy day, behind those clouds and rain the sun is still shining!!! I’m thankful for AWAI for introducing me to a new adventure! So to all of you, here’s to an enjoyable end to 2019!

  • I am thankful for all the amazing people in my life. I have a great family, great friends, as well as people that trigger me, which forces me to grow as a person. I’m thankful for all the great opportunities coming my way and for all the stumbling blocks. Each time I stumble, I get just a little bit better. I’m so thankful for the person I have become and the life I get to live each day. Tomorrow is promised to no one, so I am thankful for today.

  • So when I applied for job at the beginning of the year, as I walked in and I said to myself they can only say you were not chosen for the position. Well it went from there, past the test and was hired, along with 300 other peeps trying to get hired.

    My family and friends are the part of my life that makes me grow and to continue to strive towards our adventures, but the grandchildren are the ones that get explore my ventures with outdoor nature and creatures that are unique, especially when you run into a crocodile that is a memory you cannot forget, but luckily we enjoyed that venture.

    AWAI, when i found myself reading for 2 whole days and asked myself, “do I love reading Awai” well yes I do, so is it worth it, YES. And then being connected Wealthy Web Writer even more inspiring also to learn and grow, even though I have not found my niche, yet that my fault, maybe I have to many do not know which one to pick.

    That is what I am Thankful for this year, and exciting to continue to grow, be inspired and meet new peeps.
