I have spent the last few weeks marvelling at all of the things for which I am thankful. Thanksgiving is fast approaching and while this post is rather timely, I wanted to write it not to jump on the gravy train, pardon the pun, (or don’t- haters gonna hate) but because giving thanks truly has been my saving grace over the past few months.
My religious beliefs may differ from yours, and that’s okay, but in constantly thanking God lately, I have felt much better about everything in my life. I say this knowing that this has been one of my most difficult years, but I am still here and for that, I am grateful.
Maybe you don’t believe in God. Maybe you believe in a different God. Maybe you believe in a Greater Power. I don’t know your beliefs and I don’t need to because no matter what you believe, being grateful for all that you have is the wise and healthy choice.
There have been a great many struggles that I’ve faced this year, but I won’t waste any more time dwelling on the past. I am doing my best to keep a positive outlook and remain thankful for EVERYTHING.
I am thankful for my employment, for the roof over my head, for my family and friends who love me and have been nothing but supportive in times of need, for the lessons I’ve learned, and for the fact that ABC Family has had a Disney marathon on all evening.
Sometimes, even the simplest things can make a difference. Be positive. Smile. Say thank you. Love your life, even when it gets difficult. I promise that it won’t stay that way forever.
Merry Thanksgiving to all and to all a good night. 😉
