…and I told him I’m really grateful to be alive. If it wasn’t for him and my late mom I wouldn’t be alive. Seriously. I told my dad that I’m happy he is still around in my life. If both my parents were gone now I don’t know what I would be doing. Who would I turn to? I know I have my brother too but seriously with no parent…I would be more lost than I am now with my life.
I’m thankful everyday. Not just today on thanksgiving. And I already know that this day is a bullshit holiday. The very first thanksgiving was only colonizers who had just finished off killing 700 Native Americans and decided to have a feast afterwards. Fuck you and your fake holiday. What I’ll take from this fake holiday is recognizing more of what I’m thankful for. I call my dad every week and message my brother at least every other week. I wish my mom was around cuz I would do the same. On a thanksgiving day I’ll just reiterate how much I love everyone just as I would any other day.
What I did today actually (Japan time) was not do much during the day due to my menstrual cycle starting. But on my way to work I saw this homeless guy who I always pass by on my way to work. Finally it came across to me that instead of just passing him by I should buy a warm meal and drink for him. Today was extremely cold and I felt it in my bones. Although I’m still not doing so well for myself, he is doing worse than me. Why not buy a 300yen ($3-$4) meal for him. I can afford it and he would appreciate it. I got 3 free dinners this weeks. Why not give him something. I wish no one in this world is homeless but there are those who are.
Recently I’ve been reading a lot about many important topics and being more aware of things. I want to be more helpful to others. I feel I will be in the future. Today was a start. I have 2 more dinners to give away. The next 2 homeless people I see I will give them something because I know I can afford to give them at least a 300yen meal/drink.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING YALL (EVERYDAY IS A DAY OF THANKS)
