With Thanksgiving only a few days away, I wanted to share a few photographs I snapped, along with some gratitude quotes that I find very inspirational.
I have to be honest and say that giving thanks is something I need to continually be reminded of because it flows in and out of my consciousness.
When things are going smoothly, I sometimes take my blessings for granted because, well, things are going smoothly. But then when my life unexpectedly takes a sharp turn and drives down a bumpy road, I'm either jarred back into remembering all the things I have to be grateful for because I'm suddenly humbled, or they elude me while focusing only on the bumpy road.
So what I try to do at the end of each day, is take a few minutes to recall all that I am blessed with and say THANK YOU. Sometimes I remember to do that, but then some days I forget. However, I am getting better at making a conscious effort.
I sincerely believe that when I am more aware of my blessings, I'm happy, whether things are going smoothly or not.
It's just a matter of me remaining aware.
So here are some of the things I say to myself...
And I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of YOU for being present, because you too are one of my many blessings.
Thanks everyone and have a Happy Thanksgiving Day!
(((((((( Y'all ))))))))
Update: Because of the Thanksgiving holiday and tomorrow being Black Friday (a very early work day for me), I will be posting again on Monday. Thanks so much for your understanding and patience. Have a beautiful weekend, everyone!X
