Always thankful

It’s funny to think that it takes a holiday  — where we all gather to eat a lot of food — to think about what we are thankful for.

When really, we should be thinking about these things, these people, on a daily basis.

We should always be thankful. And, not only that, we should always give thanks.

But, life happens. We get busy. We’re trying to tackle the ga-zillion things on our to-do lists.

So, no matter where you are or what you are doing, stop and think about what you’re thankful for. It doesn’t have to be right this second. It doesn’t have to be tomorrow. But, when you have a chance, do it and you will be happy you did.

 

– Making new friends as an adult.

 

– Maintaining strong relationships with old friends as an adult.

 

– My nearby family and the fact that I will get to see 99 percent of my extended family this Christmas and New Years.

 

– My tenacious attitude that won’t let me give up on my marathon goal of sub-4 hours.

 

– My healthy body that allows me to run whenever I want to.

 

– This one person who is always there for me.

 

– The means to travel.

 

– The wonderful city of Seattle.

 

That is a full list. I could go on and on but I am full and I haven’t even had Thanksgiving dinner yet.

My life is full and I am very thankful.

(And, thank you for reading this).
