Thankfulness comes in so many forms. It can be something small or something grand. What I have found is that practicing thankfulness forces such a positive outlook in life that it is hard to think differently. Could you imagine if everyone in this world was a little more thankful for what is in front of them?
As an international traveler, I have learned to be thankful for the country we live in (even with its political craziness). Coming home to a place where I can drink the water out of the tap is something many people may take for granted. As a registered nurse, I am thankful to connect with people in some of their most humble moments. As a mom, I am thankful to have been blessed with an amazing young lady for a daughter. As a life partner to my significant other, I am thankful to have a found someone to share this life with. As a runner, I am thankful that I can. My father can’t run because of a form of muscular dystrophy. As a jewelry designer and artist I am thankful that I am able to put a smile on women’s faces after completing that amazing goal.
Happy thanksgiving everyone. Don’t forget to be thankful, even for something small.
