As Colby from The Giving Lens said on Facebook, “While I have serious issues with the founding of this holiday, especially in light of what is happening with the Dakota Pipeline protests, I do appreciate the idea of being thankful and mindful of the world around us.”

There is always something to be thankful for and Thanksgiving is the best time to remember, thank and appreciate the many blessings that life brings you. 

From family, friends, my dog, traveling, new adventures, good health, etc. I have a ton to be thankful for! If I have to pick just one thing this year though, it would be Colorado. Yes, that’s broad but it’s true…


I’m thankful for living in such a naturally beautiful, energetic and adventure filled state.






I’m thankful for getting to spend more time with my mom, sister and brother-in-law (although I do miss my dad and brother).



I’m thankful for finding my tribe and the most incredible friends, who have become family.




I’m thankful for saving, making a commitment and now owning my own Jeep/CO adventure car.


I’m thankful for my design job in Boulder and all the freelance opportunities that keep lining up.
I’m thankful for so much more, but those are a few things Colorado has made possible and brought into my life!

I also want to THANK YOU for following this journey, spreading kindness and sharing your feedback. I’m grateful you stumbled upon Adjust Your Focus® and am excited to continue this journey together.

What about you, if you could only pick one thing this year, what would you say you’re most thankful for??

Wishing you and your loved ones a very Happy Thanksgiving!
