It seems like , almost every holiday, Thanksgiving or not, makes me realize even more all I have to be thankful for. Good people, a roof over my head of course and the luxuries of all that great food. But that’s the obvious stuff. Now that I think about it there’s so many special things I over look. It’s important to be thankful for the little things too, especially the easily taken for granted ones.
For instance what about life itself. That’s obviously something to truly feel blessed with but a lot of times I forget about how easy it would be for it all to be taken away. Yeah, I know what your thinking. That sounds pretty grim for a post about Thanksgiving but it doesn’t have to be. Utilize the silver lining of the situation, being thankful for a every breath can cause each moment to feel that much more valuable. Also, it can be pretty beneficial to live each moment like it could be your last. Tell people how you feel and do things you’ve always wanted to do and you’ll notice how the quality of your life will improve.
When I say this I want to make sure this isn’t taken the wrong way… Just because you know that any moment might be your last doesn’t mean you should constantly dwell on it. You can’t waste away your life doing that.
Use it as an inspiration. Live life to the fullest and put one-hundred percent into everything you do. Don’t be afraid to be vulnerable sometimes and daring. Honestly, I think it’s the best thing when people live life deeply, emotionally, and passionately. It makes them that much more authentic and unique.
So I know that this post may be kind of broad and covered a lot of different points (maybe a bit scary..) but I hope what I had to say makes sense and maybe you take my advice with a grain of salt.
xxx, Happy Thanksgiving.
