Give Thanks

I believe that giving thanks should be something that happens on a regular basis. It’s not always easy to remember, and let’s be honest, sometimes it’s easier to be in an ugly, unthankful mood rather than look for the positive. I try to give thanks throughout the day, beginning as soon as I wake up, and ending as my head hits the pillow at the end of a long day. I find that when I give thanks for small things, those things grow, and soon, I have an abundance of things to be thankful for. Whenever things are a bit blue in my life, I take a moment and write a list of all the things I am grateful for. I’d like to share that list with you (in no particular order, I usually write whatever pops into my mind first):

– A healthy, loving support system

– Random strangers that smile at me in the street

– Health and healthy living

– Laughter

– Home

– Healthy relationships

– Challenges that make me stronger

– Opportunities that I am given

– The ability to work hard

– Good eye sight

– Working limbs and organs

– Coffee, and lots of it

– Really heavy books

– My jobs

– The gift of the written word

These are just some of the things I think about to help me see the good in my life. Sadness is easier because it’s surrender. It’s difficult to think positively. With work and effort, it becomes natural. Make gratitude and heartfelt thankfulness a part of your day, every day.


Cheers friends! Happy Thanksgiving (Or, Thanksgivukkah…)
