If you are reading this, you are alive. If you are reading this, you are here on earth. If you are reading this, you have a reason to be thankful. I know that circumstances can sometimes create a place in which it is hard to smile. I know that, many times, you just want to ball up on the couch and cry or binge watch countless seasons of your favorite show on Netflix to avoid life (that is me), but don’t get caught up in it all — the mindset that you do not have enough and are always wishing for more — the mindset that constantly worries about what is next. Think about what you do have. Life. You somehow woke up today and had the ability to live. That, in itself, is a reason to be thankful. So grab hold of the ones you hold dear, and never take what you do have for granted because it means a whole lot more once it is gone. Why not appreciate it now?
