As Thanksgiving approaches, it’s only natural for me to think of all the things I’m thankful for. But I don’t wait till Thanksgiving week to think about them. I think about them daily. Literally every day presents something for me to be thankful for. Every morning I wake up in my own house. Thankful for functional lungs to breathe the air I breathe. To be able to move around and get ready on my own. To get in my car and go to my job to make money to pay for my car and house and food etc..it’s really the little things that matter the most. The things we often take for granted. But I’m sooooo very thankful for them. Even if I complain sometimes. Even if I want more sometimes. I really am grateful for what I have. And I’m grateful for all the people in my life. I cherish the relationships I have with my family and friends. Old and new. Every interaction we have, every laugh we share, every lesson learned. Good, bad, and ugly. I’m thankful for it all!! So I challenge you, not only for this week, but for for the rest of the year, for 2019, and for years to come, instead of focusing on what you and don’t have, consistently reflect on what you do have and be thankful for.
