Thankful Thursday

As the weeks of Thankful Thursdays go on, I half feel like I'm running out of things to write. I don't want to write about the small, seemingly-insignificant things that I appreciate, I want my posts to have depth and meaning (and an element of humour as well). But in all honesty, how many "big" things can I be thankful for before I start sounding corny or insincere?

So this week, I'm thankful that I have a good job. Those of you that know me might remember that this time last year, I was in a miserable position at work. I was in a job that was a bad fit right from the start, and there wasn't anything I could do about it. It was a very tough few months, but then I moved into Internal Audit, and despite everything that you've heard or said about auditors, they're a really good group! The work suits my nitpicky personality, and I continue to learn new things all the time (which is an important element of a job for me). I'm happier than I was a year ago, that's for sure.

So while this isn't a huge, meaningful relevation, it's still something that definitely makes me happy.

Your reasoning is why I don't do the Thankful Thursday thing... I think it would come off poorly after a while. However your Thursday posts are always good :) I'm glad you are in a good place :)
