Demi Lovato's Thanksgiving Message

It's been a big year for Demi Lovato. She opens up about what she is feeling thankful for.

Last year, Demi spent the holidays at a treatment center, where she was working hard to recover from her eating disorder. In this post for Seventeen, she talks about how she is in a healthier place today and why she feels grateful for all the gifts in her life:

"Going to treatment was a gift and I believe it saved my life. I learned how to be strong and healthy even through struggles. It also helped me open up about my issues and share them with others. Knowing that my family, friends and fans accept me for who I am is the greatest feeling ever...

I am so thankful that I am healthy and happy this year. I no longer take things for granted, like my family, friends, fans and career. Each day is special to me and I take each day one day at a time.

Sometimes people get busy and forget to enjoy the moment - but I know I will not do that this holiday season. I have worked very hard to get to the place I am today and I am going to enjoy every minute of it! I wish all of you a very happy and healthy Thanksgiving."
