These Are a Few of the Things I’m Grateful For

On this Thanksgiving Sujeiry thanks all of you and many more.

This holiday season my mom is meeting Boo’s parents for the first time! And my stress level is pretty high. Not only am I baking yummy, gingerbread whoopee pies from scratch for the first time, but I also have to be the translator for the night. You see, Boo’s mom is Vietnamese and doesn’t speak a lick of Spanish; and Mami is Dominican and doesn’t speak a lick of English – or Vietnamese!

Still, I’m excited. I have so much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. There are a many things I cannot share (yet) but I can tell you a few things that I am grateful for.

1. My love, as in Boo! I am so happy to have met him, fallen in love with him and moved in with him – all in a year and a half! And he reciprocates all of my feelings. He’s kind, thoughtful, funny, and so responsible and reliable. I can count on him, his love and his presence always. I am so blessed.

2.  My writers. Yes, the ladies that keep churning along! This digital platform/online magazine is like the Little Engine That Could. And I can’t keep it running or together without my amazing writers. Thank you for sharing your advice and love and dating stories with courage, humor and honesty.

3. Value. I have come along way regarding self-worth and self-love. I didn’t always stand up for what I am worth and now I do, even if it means losing an opportunity, a job or a relationship. I honestly don’t even recognize the woman I used to be; I’ve grown so much. I am so grateful for the lessons, the stumbles, and yes, the tough inner work that I had to do to get to this point: that’s happy and fulfilled.

4. Readers and fans. I hate the word fans, I really do. Cause regardless of how successful I am in the entertainment industry, I still feel like Sujeiry from Washington Heights. But, there isn’t any other word, so fans it is. And I am truly grateful to all who have followed my career, read every book and post, and who listen to me on radio and watch me on TV. I really appreciate your support.

5. Opportunity. As I said in the beginning there are some things brewing in my life. I just can’t share just yet! I am hoping to do so in a few weeks, maybe sooner. And, if it doesn’t pan out, well, I am thankful for the opportunity. I’ve learned that there is always an open door. And I am always willing, ready and grateful to walk through it.

Happy Thanksgiving, loves!
