Things We Are Thankful For This Thursday: Happy Thanksgiving!
Today the U.S celebrates thanksgiving, a traditional holiday where people recognise and are thankful for all the blessings in their lives. Although not American, both myself and Jess are huge believers in being thankful for even the smallest things in life, as it is these that help you realise true happiness. It is so easy to caught up in the negative aspects of your life that you forget that much of what occurs in your day to day life is something to be thankful for.
Somehow we have forgot that being thankful is a great way to think positively, a chance to sit down and assess your life and most importantly – make you happy. If you only sat down and thought about all the positve in your life then why would you ever really be unhappy?
A great way of being thankful is literally to count your blessings so why dont you make a list of all the wonderful things in your life just like me and Jess have below.
The things im thankful for today are…
♥ The wonderful food that my lovely friend Charlotte, is preparing for us tonight. She lived in Michigan for many years and loves celebrating thanksgiving. The amount of effort she is has put into us experiencing it for the first time has been unreal so thank you Char, your a gem.
♥ My family. Last week my grandad passed away, it has been such a painful loss as he played such a huge role in my family. The support we have giving to each other and that they have giving to me has been second to none and I would never change them for anything.
♥ True friends. They are hard to come by so it is important to be good to them and they will be good to you. True friends are their for you, no matter what, good times and bad times, they will not judge you and will respect the decisions you make as you should with them.
♥ My partner and his wise and wonderful words, he always knows the right thing to say.
♥ All the bad things that happen in life as they make me appreciate the good times so much more.
