I’m thankful for the freedom to set my own hours,
Thankful to use the full breadth of my powers,
Thankful for customers who provide me with work,
Thankful I can say no to serving a jerk,
Thankful for my team who helps me succeed,
Thankful to have “take a risk” as my creed,
Thankful I don’t need a boss’s permission,
Thankful to spend time fulfilling my mission,
Thankful for my family’s love and support,
Thankful I was born as the independent sort.
Most of all I’m thankful this Thanksgiving,
That I get to do what I love for a living!
