Thankful Thusday

Today in my Environmental Appreciation class we discussed, our environment and problems facing the situation such as, conflicting points of view, the government, religion...ect. But if we all just do the "right" thing, won't everything be okay? Won't everything turn out the way it is suppose to? The sad thing is, our view of the "right" thing differs. Some of us are never really taught to do the"right" thing. We don't realize our impact on our environment, the people around us and ourselves. Some of us don't see the power we truly have within ourselves, some don't see a problem and some of us are afraid of change. But, nevertheless, we are ruining the world we live in. There are a lot of things we could do to protect this sacred place. We could, use alternative fuel sources, solar panels, recycle more and protect places like tropical rain forests. The truth is, this has never been a major interest in my life. But I want to make the place I live a better place and even more I want to make sure that my kids, grand kids and great grand kids will be able to experience the earth as I have experienced. Today I am thankful for this beautiful earth that I live on. Without it, I simply wouldn't exist.
In relation, I believe we all have it within our selves to make a difference. I mean look at;
*Mother Teresa
*Martin Luther King Jr.
*My sweet momma.
*Lance Armstrong
*J.K Rowling
And so many more.
I think it is important to work towards what we believe in. I don't think it is necessary to "convert" someone to our way of thinking, but rather to influence people toward the common good. I am thankful for all those influential people in the world.

I am also thankful for the Lord today...and everyday. I am thankful for the morals I have made for my self, and those in which my parents instilled within me. I am thankful for the happiness that my parents have given me. I love them with all my heart.
In my favorite move, Legally Blonde, at the end, Elle Woods says, "It is with passion, courage of conviction, and strong sense of self that we take our next steps into the world, remembering that first impressions are not always correct. You must always have faith in people. And most importantly, you must always have faith in yourself." I am so thankful that I have the faith within my self to fulfill my goals and the faith in others to help me get through my journey as I help those around me through theirs. :)


  1. I have no doubt that your father is so proud of you and your mom is looking down with the most beautiful smile on her face. I love your thankful Thursday post, what a remarkable thing to be thankful for at such a young age. Although you have been put through many things, a young girls should never have to put through, I believe you are who you are because of it. You are STRONG, LOVING, CARING, COMPASSIONATE, AND A REMARKABLE YOUNG LADY. I am a grown women and your post inspire me so much to be a better person each day through God.

  2. Nicole, you have to tell me how to do my page like you with the multiple pictures in my title. I have tried, but I can only get one picture in it. I used Cutest Little Blopspot too, so it should be the same. Can you email me at when you get a chance and tell me how to add muliple pictures? Thank you! Chasity
