Even in the darkest times, there is one small thing to be grateful for. Even if it’s just because you’re breathing today. Even if it’s just because you know your mom has dinner waiting for you. Every day you can find tiny things to be thankful for that will make your day better as a whole. Here are some little things to be thankful for and to remember this Thanksgiving.
1. Your job
Even if you hate it, it’s giving you a way to live and could potentially be opening doors for you in the future.
2. Your family
Whoever you consider your family to be, whether it’s your best friends or blood relatives – they’re always by your side.
3. Your pets!
(If you don’t have a pet, I’m sorry) but from goldfish to ferrets to dogs and cats – these animals are always so excited to have you home.
4. You’re breathing
Yeah, our health can get real sucky sometimes. But we’re here and that’s all that matters for now.
5. The opportunity to learn
Whether you’re in school or just googling questions to gain some knowledge – the opportunity to learn is always at our fingertips.
And while there are many things I could say I’m thankful for, these top 5 are humble reminders to not live with such high expectations that we always consider life a disappointment.
