Every year when thanksgiving comes around I would say I’m thankful for my parents, thankful for food, and thankful for other things. Little did I know the meaning of thankful would add so much value to life.
I can only speak for myself. I grew up thinking that thanksgiving was all about eating food and sharing what I’m thankful for. Not till last year did it change for me. Last year was by far the hardest year I had. If you recall I had a post where I shared my hardship and I shared my feelings on how I might end up without a roof. So I truly understand the meaning of thankful.
We have everything so good around us that we forget to be thankful daily and we wait till thanksgiving to show it. Doesn’t that remind you of another holiday?
I would say thank you when I can and I would say thankful whenever I can throughout the year. I am truly blessed by whatever god their is. I have experienced so much love, so much happiness, so much pain and sorrow that have better me. Yes I am thankful for the pain in which it helped me grow and helped me appreciate the other moments. I remind myself of who I would be and where I would be if it wasn’t for what I have in life. I’m talking about the people that I have surrounded myself with. They have shown me kindness in ways that will make me cry if I try to express it.
I guess what I’m saying is, don’t wait till today to share what your thankful for. Don’t wait till today once a year to be grateful and cherish what you have. We shouldn’t live like that. Life is too precious to be bitter all year. Be thankful everyday. Be happy every day. Express your love, express yourself everyday, express the warm fuzzy feeling you get when you look at your significant other.
I always tell him, I am here only because you allow me to be here and I am thankful for that. I am truly blessed and truly thankful everyday.
So my suggestion is be thankful today and everyday thereafter.
