Thanksgiving Friday: What I Am Thankful For This Week

The incidents mentioned in my last "Thanksgiving Friday" post are still fresh and as MH370 still remains missing, I continue to be thankful for the times I have boarded the aircraft and landed safely. Let us continue to pray and stay positive. 

Moving forward to this week, first on my Thanksgiving list is these Clinique Chubby Stick and Maybelline Lipstick. 

Having recently purchased the chubby stick (and spending a lot of money), I was very sad to have misplaced these 2 items. 

When I finally found them, I couldn't hold my excitement and started dancing and singing (yes, I am weird like that :D).

The second and the most exciting thing I'm thankful for this week is getting into the dance workout routine. I am loving and enjoying the moves so much, I look like a complete idiot sometimes :)  Do you love dancing? 

Dance Workout for Dummies

The instructor is very good at explaining and demonstrating the steps and guides you throughout the whole session, as if she is physically present in the same room as you.

This video includes basic steps. If you want to dance and exercise at the same time, I definitely recommend this. If you know of any other ones, please do let me know.

Thanksgiving Friday

Before you jump to conclusions, I am not thankful that this person died. Please let me make that clear before you start cursing me.

A close friend's, friends's sister (sorry for the confusion) was found dead in her bedroom in Goa. She left behind 2 kids. Incidents such as this makes me think twice of how thankful and grateful, I should be for seeing and witnessing another day. 

I have been blessed with another opportunity to make things happen and achieve my dreams. Unfortunately, not everybody is lucky.

That is why one of my goals this year is to be thankful for what I have and to make every single day count, will you?

  1. We could see the earth from satellite but we cannot find a plane go figure. Your lipstick is amazing that work out I need to try lol. Enjoy your weekend.

    1. I don't understand why there would have switches that cab be turned off so easily and allow the plane to disappear?
      In order t turn the switch off there should be a strict procedure, you cannot let it be so simple.

      People are getting desperate and I know the authorities are doing everything in their power to find the missing aircraft but I feel for the families. Nobody should be going through this horror and the pain.

      It's a matte one from Maybelline, I love the lipstick.

  2. Glad you are still doing these posts!

    I love finding things I've lost or forgotten about!

    1. It's one of my favourite lipstick, I was over the moon when I found both the items.

      Thank you. I am loving the Thanksgiving Friday series and the response to this has been positive as well so these posts are not going anywhere for now. xx

  3. U found these two back, that's great .. I get so restless when I loose my belongings..
    I need to give the dance workout a shirt as I have been a dancer all my school like, learnt classical and other dance forms..
    About the women found dead, it breaks my heart as I know how it us when someone leaves and you have so many thinking in mind that u wish u was able to tell him..
    Keep in touch

    1. Yes, I did, was so happy when I found them. I get all moody when I lose something and start bothering everyone :)

      You are classical trained?? wow, I love classical and tried few times when I was in school. I love dancing, but lost touch. Trying to get back into it and loving it. You should definitely give it a try.

      I completely agree, you are never ready for someone's departure, it's heartbreaking.

      Hope you are doing well.Take care xx

  4. Hello dearest Naaj, thank you so much for this post! It's is horrible what happened with the friend's sister and it's also a catastrophe that the plane is still be missing.

    Unfortunately I'm not able to dance, I don't know why, but maybe the Dance workout for dummies is helpful for me :)

    I'm thankful this week that I got surprisingly an interesting job-offer, which is still a secret, but a confirmation that I did a good job in the past :)

    Hope you enjoyed your weekend so far!

    Kisses from Bavaria/Germany, Rena

    1. It makes us appreciate the things and the people we take for granted.

    1. You are not alone Jho. Sometimes, I get carried away as well and concentrate on what went wrong so much that I forget to appreciate the good that came out of it.

      Thanksgiving Friday is about reminding us about these moments that we should focus more on the good.
