A friend of mine shared this yesterday on Facebook. I was moved by it, so I decided to copy it and play along myself. Since I have already written a post for day 1 and day 2, I will just answer those quickly.
1. A memory I am thankful for…remembering 4 of my great grandparents and well. I am thankful that that they were in my life and for long enough that I know what it was like to be loved by them.
2. A color I am thankful for…orange. It is my favorite color. As long as I can remember it has been my favorite color. It is bright and cheery and when I see things in orange I can’t help but smile and be happy!
3. A freedom I am thankful for….being a woman in 2018. Honestly, either 1 of 2 things would’ve happened had I been born a century or two earlier. Well, I wouldn’t have made it very long. Assuming I had the same personality, I probably would’ve been mistreated by society, my family, my school, my work and anyone else.
The other option for this would be, that my personality would’ve been stifled, so I wouldn’t have been able to be the person I am anyway. The loud, fun, energetic, open, honest woman that I am. I mean if we are being perfectly honest, some people look down on that still in 2018, so I know that I wouldn’t have made it in 1918.
Being able to work, vote, have opinions, get an education well these are all freedoms I am afforded in 2018 as a woman. I mean, if I am being honest it is gross that there was a time where woman couldn’t do all those things. Even more gross that in 2018 woman are still being held down in some capacities.
I don’t surround myself with people who can’t handle me as a woman, as a person!! I am me and I make no apologies for it.
What freedom are you thankful for??
