Month of Thanks: Day 30

Today is the last day of my Month of Thanks, which has been a great way for me to truly stop and think about all the things that I'm grateful for. Even with this being the end, I will not stop being grateful. There are so many things to be grateful for and thirty days is… Continue reading Month of Thanks: Day 30

Day 29: Hoods I'm going on a bit of an emo binge on this one, but I'm super-duper thankful for hoods on jackets, sweatshirts, whatever! I just love hoods! Hoods are great for when you want to hide from people. They protect your hair from the rain. They block out the blinding rays of sunlight… Continue reading Month of Thanks: Day 29

Day 28: Lotion This one probably sounds silly to some and the others are going to understand it completely. Lotion is one of those things that I'm extremely grateful for, especially as the colder weather starts to rush in at this time of year. I spend so much time outside. I spend lots of time… Continue reading Month of Thanks: Day 28

Day 27: Seasons I am grateful for the changing seasons, which I experience living full up here in the Midwest. Each one is unique. Each one has wonderful, and sometimes annoying, qualities, but each one shines when it's their turn and relinquishes its hold for the next. The changing of seasons, each with their extremes, keeps me… Continue reading Month of Thanks: Day 27

Month of Thanks: Day 26

Day 26: Thanksgiving Yum! That's the first thing we all think when Thanksgiving comes to mind: the food. The roasted turkey, the mashed potatoes, the soft, warm rolls, the green bean casserole, the dressing, and the pies and cobblers: apple, pecan, pumpkin. Mm! (I actually used to hate pie. :p I was a weird child. Haha!)… Continue reading Month of Thanks: Day 26

Day 25: Laughter Heh. heh. Hee hee! Ho Ho! Haha! BaHaHa! MWAHAHA! Laughter is awesome! Laughter shows so many different forms of happiness whether it be good or evil, boisterous or pitiful. The act of laughing shows us so much about someone. It can tell us what they're feeling almost instantly, or if they're faking. What's more… Continue reading Month of Thanks: Day 25

Day 24: Clean Water I am grateful for clean water. To many living in first world countries this may sound like a simple thing, but just think about the number of people in the world who don't have access to clean water. Their water is tainted, dirty, foul. It's water, but it's not clean. It's drinkable,… Continue reading Month of Thanks: Day 24

Day 23: Freedom I have to bring this up because I am extremely lucky to have the freedoms that I do. I have the freedom to say what I want, where what I want, act how I want, vote for whom I want, write what I want, read about what I want. My freedom has given me… Continue reading Month of Thanks: Day 23

Day 22: Smiles Alright. This one is both serious and silly, but think about it: Smiles are powerful. For someone who struggles with depression or a teenager who feels invisible, a smile could change their day, or even their life. Smiling is a non-verbal way to acknowledge someone, to greet them, to let them know that… Continue reading Month of Thanks: Day 22

Day 21: The 5 Senses I am grateful that I possess all five senses because I can't imagine a world without any of them. I rely on my sight to see the vibrancy and color of the world. I rely on my smell fill me with all the richness of the Earth. I rely on… Continue reading Month of Thanks: Day 21
