7 Things I’m Thankful For This Year


Written by:

Hey guys! It’s me, Bigfoot Kal. Long time no see! Life has been absolutely CRAZY for me lately. I can’t even remember the last time I posted on the blog…but I’m back baby!

Spending most of my year at the Kalidy office got me thinking about what I value the most in my life. Thanksgiving may have already passed but it always inspires and reminds me to be thankful for every day of my life. Life is short so we need to take in every day as much as we can!

Here are the seven things I’ve been the most thankful for this year.

Kalidy Homes 

Okay, okay. THIS is a given. I spend most of my time here but I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else! Kalidy Homes provides second chances to all Oklahomans looking to own their dream home. I’m thankful that their office is my HOME. This is a place where I’m accepted and not feared. I’m able to bring a smile to everybody’s face and just relax when I need to.

I’m thankful that I can roam the office without anybody yelling at me. It only happened one time when I knocked some coffee over and blamed it on someone’s imagination. (Would anybody really notice??) I’m thankful that I get to meet new people every day. I get to take “bigfoot” naps and take selfies whenever I feel like it. (Btw, “bigfoot” naps are like cat naps, I’m just a lot bigger than a cat.) I’m thankful for my brother from another mother, Sabih, and every single employee. Kalidy Homes is just the most amazing place in the world.

Great, NOW I’m getting emotional and I’m just getting started. Moving on…

Oklahoma City Thunder 

THUNDER UP!! I have been actively following what the Thunder has been doing for I don’t even know how long. I follow them on Twitter, watch every single one of their games, and try not to embarrass myself in public when I’m at a game. You have to be careful when sitting at their games because most people aren’t seven feet tall like me.

I’m thankful for the joy the Thunder brings to Oklahoma City. Every single team mate does so much good for the local community. They’re awesome role models for people wanting to do good in the world. The actual games are SO much fun to watch because they’re full of energy. If you live in Oklahoma, everybody needs to go to a Thunder game at least once during their time here.


Y’all know that I need to brag about myself for a bit. I think I’m absolutely hilarious and wise at the same time (how is that even possible…?) so I share my funny knowledge on Twitter.

I’m thankful for Twitter! It’s very fast-moving and interactive. I have met SO many amazing people who share my values and interests. I’m thankful for those wonderful human beings who make life worthwhile. Twitter helps me step out of my shell and connect with people around the world. LIKE, WHAT?! That’s freaking awesome!!

The Great Outdoors! 

My goodness am I thankful for the great outdoors! I’m literally always doing something that involves nature. I’m climbing trees, climbing the Kalidy office building and hiking through some of Oklahoma’s great parks. My personal favorite places to hike through are the Turner Falls area and the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge. 


Weekends are the best. I can sleep in, goof around on my phone, spend time with Sabih, climb trees, and go hiking and/or camping if I feel like it. I’m thankful that weekends even exist.

They give me plenty of time to relax and do whatever I need to do. I sometimes feel like I never have time for anything during the week (who doesn’t?) and the weekends just make life a little bit easier.


I’ve always been thankful for food. It’s literally the greatest thing on the planet apart from the Thunder and Kalidy Homes. Some of my favorite spots to grab a bite at in the OKC metro are Big Truck Tacos, Empire Slice House and Bricktown Brewery.

If you have any recommendations on where you think I should go, let me know! (See what I did there?) I’m always looking out for new restaurants to try out!


Last but not least is how thankful I am for the great state of Oklahoma. Some may say that “Oklahoma is okay.” Um, I think Oklahoma is GREAT! There are several reasons why Sabih and I have chosen to stay here, grow Kalidy Homes and raise his family.

It’s very affordable to live here. They say it has to do with Oklahoma’s recession-proof economy. OKC contains a very diverse population filled with humble and friendly people. I’m told it has a very low crime rate and excellent school systems. That’s pretty hard to come across if you ask me! There are SO many reasons why Oklahoma is such a great place to live.

I could talk al’day about the things that I’ve been thankful for this year. There has been so much happening but I’ll just share these seven for now.

Well, I’m off to do some hiking and take selfies for Twitter. I’ll write another blog post next month, so you’ll definitely hear from me again!
