FBFF ~ Gratitude

On Friday we all post our responses. It's s a fun, diverse and creative blog community! If you're interested in being a part of this fabulous group, head over to Katy's FBFF page for details!

Today's post is all about GRATITUDE. 
Prepare to gag a little. I am a touchy feely gal. 
Can't help it! :)

1.  When it comes to me personally – I owe a lot of who I am to:
My parents/family. We have been through so much over the years. I am so proud of my parents for working through their marriage and getting through so much that would have and has broken other families up. I am so proud of them!! They have taught me so much about work ethic and determination as well. They didn't come from families with money- actually very much the opposite, but they have worked SO HARD in life, and I am so proud of their accomplishments!! I have learned dedication, commitment, work ethic, love and many other qualities from them. Also, God. I am by far imperfect, and I am so blessed to be loved by my creator, so much, no matter what. 

2. When it comes to be professionally – I owe a lot of who I am to:
Well, I am in limbo professionally right now. But my college education {degree in Health Promotion & Education} is something no one can ever take from me. Also, some friends and mentors who have encouraged me through some rough years and really built me up! THANK YOU!!!

3. When it comes to the art of blogging, I’m grateful to these people for helping me through some rough spots:

4. One blogging challenge I’m grateful happened because it made me stronger was…
When my blog was still super new and my camera was stolen I reached out to Katy @ Modly Chic for some advice and she challenged me to step outside the box. Thanks, Katy!!

5. To my readers, I’d like to say…

I also love that you gave a disclaimer for possibly making someone gag too. LOL. Thanks for the shoutout! luv ya girl!
