Thankful Thursday: a job

8:00 AM

Hi Y'all,
As this is the "month of thanks", I thought it would be great to take some time each week to remind myself what I'm thankful for. And, in case you were curious, yes, there is still one major holiday in between now and Christmas, it's called Thanksgiving.

For this first post, I'm thankful for my job. I currently work for a small boutique that sells Lilly Pulitzer. I'm extremely lucky because the store is expanding. Lots of other small boutiques in our section are closing/going out of business. That means, people are out of jobs right before the holiday season (literally one store is closing in two weeks!).

I won't lie, sometimes my job is stressful/anxiety causing (you're looking at a social introvert so when the store gets really busy I find that taxing), but that means that I have a way to provide for myself because our store has customers!

Plus, I could be like a lot of college graduates and not have any job at all.

It's a fun work environment and I get to work with a clothing brand I love on a daily basis!

What are y'all thankful for?

with southern grace,

I worked retail right out of college as well :)
Now I'm working in social media management so I am thankful for my job as well.

Your job sounds like fun! Even though I know from experience retail can horribly exhausting sometimes, it helps to be surrounded by beautiful things! Can't wait to read more of what you're thankful for this season. xx Merisa | Monogrammed Magnolias
