This isn’t normally the kind of post I write, but I wanted to take the time to think about the things I’m thankful for this Thanksgiving.
The past 2 years have been a rough one for many of us.
One thing I’ve come to find out through my 21 days self-growth challenge is how important it is to find things to be grateful for.
It’s not just about being thankful and grateful one day out of the year. You have to be thankful for the little things that happen to you everyday, not take life for granted.
Now let’s get into the things I’m thankful for this Thanksgiving 2022.
- Lessons Learned
- Personal Growth
Things I’m Thankful For
The thing I’m most grateful for is my family. They’ve always supported me through everything. They push me to be my best version of myself. They don’t hesitate or question when I need help with anything. I moved with my family to our new home in Florida a couple of months ago and it’s been a huge transition for us. I’m so grateful I get to spend my life with someone so wonderful, caring and attentive. I couldn’t be anymore blessed.
I’ve been lucky so far this year and haven’t had any colds, flu, or any type of sickness. I have to be thankful for my health this year. This is something I take for granted at times, and when I’m thinking of things I’m grateful for, this always comes to mind.
Another thing I’m grateful for is my opportunities this year. I’ve had the opportunity to triple my salary this year and work for a company here in Florida that appreciates their employees. I’ve had the opportunity to start this blog. I’ve had the opportunity to spend more time with my family. This year has been full of opportunities for me.
At the time, it’s hard to be grateful, but looking back I’m thankful for all of the lessons I’ve learned. When I was going through a hard time, there was usually some sort of lesson that came out of it. Whether things happen for a reason or not, there is usually something that can come out of it. Everything happens for a reason at the time they are meant to happen and reveal themselves.
These past months I’ve spent a lot of time on my self growth and loving myself more everyday and that gave me a lot of time to think and experience new perspectives. In a way, I started a personal growth journey. I read a few self help books and I really feel like I finally accepted myself for who I’m. I’ll keep developing and bettering myself, but I’m grateful for my growth this past year.
Cooking. Traveling. More family events. Trying new things. I’m thankful for all of the adventures this year has brought me. I can’t complain one bit about the everything I’ve experienced.
My favorite adventures this year have been exploring Florida, outdoor Yelp Elite events, trying different cuisines hosted by Yelp, exploring the beaches in Fort Myers and Central Florida. There are too many adventures to name, but these were some of my favorites that I’m thankful I got to experience.
Of course I’m thankful for much much more, but these were things that came to mind first.
I hope everyone has an amazing Thanksgiving!
Remember to be thankful everyday, not just TODAY.
