God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say “thank you?” ~William A. Ward
I will admit that I am sometimes bad at gratitude; such as I am bad at being optimistic. These are things that I have to work hard to remind myself and my brain about. I am prone to anxiety and catastrophizing if I don’t work hard to remember the good things in life. And if I don’t remind myself that everything is going to be ok.
But I am thankful because I am lucky to have many wonderful people in my life. So in the spirit of Thanksgiving (despite some of the horrible history behind it) here are some things I am thankful for in no particular order:
- My family
- My brother
- My significant other (boyfriend, whatever word you wanna use).
- My friends
- Words & writing
What are you thankful for today? How do you show your gratitude? Happy Thanksgiving.
