Today is Thanksgiving Day in Canada. As I've already said, it is not really celebrated around me, it's mostly a day off work!!
However, this year is the first year that I reflect on what I want to be thankful for.
A lot of things have changed in my life since last Thanksgiving. A year ago, I was not out to anybody, yet I was preparing for my first coming out (I had actually planned on coming out to my parents on Thanksgiving night.... before backing up).
I am first thankful to me to have had that determination to go forward in my life and do the unimaginable. I am thankful for the lucidity I had to realize that I was not so sure of who I was after coming out to my parents. I am thankful to have done what was necessary to dig in my soul to understand who I was. I am of course thankful to my parents for their acceptance of me. I am thankful to the internet to have made me discover a lot of things about homosexuality and to have found people like me. I am thankful to my counsellor for helping me connect with my emotions. I am thankful to my cousin Sandy for being so exceptional. I am thankful to my friend Jack for still being the same friend. I am thankful to have created this blog and met a lot of great people through it and even becoming friends with some of them. I am thankful for this new network that I don't think I could live without it, now that I have it.
All in all, I'm thankful for the progress I've made during the last year.
I wonder what I'll be thankful for next year :)
