Most of the time during this time of year, we like to reflect on the past year's acheivements, some of its disappointments and hope for a better new year. Here, I'd like to share a few things that I am thankful for.
A. I'm thankful that I am nearly flat broke, so I don't spend money on useless items that lose their charm in a few weeks
B. I'm thankful for not having the best of everything, because they are a LOT more expensive to replace.
C. Thankful that the things that mean the most to me, cost almost nothing at all.
D. Thankful that I have had my heart broken in the past, because I learn from mistakes and know what to do to keep my relationship strong.
E. Thankful that I know what it's like to want more, so that I work harder to get to where I want to be, and will appreciate it even more when I get there.
F. Thankful that I have challenges with my child that not everyone will get to experience, for it is those challenges that make me grateful for everything he does.
G. Thankful that I'm not financially well off, you can't miss what you don't have.
H. Thankful I live in a tiny house, less mess to clean :)
I. And I am truly thankful for the wonderful people that I have been blessed with to know in my life. They are my parachute when the bottom falls out, and the ladder when I need the extra boost. And if anyone says they are the wind beneath my wings, Imma slap you until your teeth roll :D
There are tons more things that I am thankful for, but that is for another day. Just use this to help you reflect on your personal reasons to be thankful. Remember, forget all the reasons why it won't work, and believe in the one reason that it will.
