In The Fashionista's Closet: Thanks For Everything

So apparently Oprah (my Aunt O in my head) has launched a

 I love the way that Oprah has a way of making you think of things bigger than yourself.

So I thought that I would play along:

Thank someone who gave you an opportunity. That one's easy. Definitely the principal at my school. She took a chance on me when I was looking to prove myself to anyone who would give me a shot. She has been such a great example of leadership and I love working with her.
(P.S. She doesn't know about my blog that I know of so I'm not kissing up!)

Thank someone who taught you something. My students. They have taught me to (try) and be patient and to be resilient. Kids don't hold grudges but plenty of grown-ups do!

Thank someone who probably thinks you’ve forgotten all about them. My ex-neighbor and friend. She was a constant of strength for me when we lived near one another and although we no longer live near one another I think of her often. I can never repay her for all that she has given me. She seemed to have some type of Juanette ESP because she always knew when I needed a friend and would call or pop up when I needed her most. Her advice to me about anything that I was going through? Pray first before you make a decision. *I tend to react first.*

Thank someone who forgave you, or gave you a second chance. God. For Grace. Over and over.

Thank someone who taught you something. To C. For teaching me to enjoy the moment. And to chill out (my brain works overtime I've been told.) I'm still working on turning it off.

Shirt: Thrifted
Necklaces (2): H&M
Skirt: H&M Conscious Collection
Bracelets: Sam Moon, Forever 21
Clutch: Can't remember
Shoes: Jessica Simpson

I love this concept, I think that it is important to be grateful and show it to others.
Who would you like to thank today?
