Thanksgiving is a day where we all gather together to be thankful for the blessings we have in our lives. We’re thankful for the food on our table, but we’re also thankful to be blessed with wonderful family, friends, community, and good health. Most of us have these, but we take them for granted on most days.
I may not be swimming in money or living in a mansion, but I do have the best of everything that I do have. I have a loving family that I got closer with now that I moved back home. I have a wonderful boyfriend that brings out the best in me (and loves me when I’m hard to love!). I have amazing friends that I know will always have the best times with. I am living the dream at my amazing job with coworkers that I love. And I’m thankful for all the things I can do because of the opportunities that I can seize as they come along.
So it’s nice that we have a day just to give thanks and to be grateful. But really, we should be thankful for what we have everyday - to be thankful of the past and lessons we learned, to cherish the present, and to look forward to the future that we may enjoy.
Like Oprah Winfrey once said, “Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”
