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

Day 20: Dance A rumba. A waltz. A jitterbug. A tango. A hustle. A Foxtrot. A jig. Whatever you call it, it's still dance. Dance comes in as many styles and techniques as there are ethnicities of people and each one is just as unique and vibrant as the next. Dance has been around for… Continue reading Month of Thanks: Day 20

Day 19: Food I am grateful for food and not just because it's required for survival or gives me energy, but because it's something that can truly be enjoyed in life. There are so many different ethnicities of foods, so many different dishes, and so many different twists to put on each dish. Two people can… Continue reading Month of Thanks: Day 19

Day 18: Handwritten Letters This is something that is so lost on today's generations what with the countless options for communication: texting, tweeting, instagraming, snapchatting. While these may be quick, they've lost meaning. They're not personal. Children nowadays don't understand the time and determination it takes to hand-write a letter to someone, the feeling of receiving a… Continue reading Month of Thanks: Day 18

Day 17: Color That's right. Laugh all you want, but I'm grateful for color. There are so many colors in the world, natural and man-made, and each one has its own personality. Each one says something different. Each one has the power to evoke emotion, spark a memory, and change the way someone feels, and it's just… Continue reading Month of Thanks: Day 17

Day 16: Time I am grateful for time. I constantly say 'I don't have time', which isn't true. I have lots of time. I just never have enough to fit in all the things that I'd like to fit in and, even so, I'm so grateful for the time that I have. Every minute is precious.… Continue reading Month of Thanks: Day 16

Day 15: Education I am thankful for education, my education and the opportunity for education, because the mind is a terrible thing to waste. There are so many things in the world to learn about.

Day 13: Diversity I'm thankful for diversity in appearance, beliefs, and everything because a world made of identical, grey, nonchalant people would be boring. (I've read enough Dystopians to know that. ^.^) There are so many unique people on this planet. Each one is molded by their heritage, friends, environment, faith. Each one has their own opinions,… Continue reading Month of Thanks: Day 13

Day 12: Pain Now, bear with me on this one because I realize this sounds strange. However, I'm grateful for pain. Pain is our body's alarm system. It tells us when something is wrong, when we're injured or unhealthy. Pain is there to inform us that we need to fix something so that we may become healthy again. Without pain, I… Continue reading Month of Thanks: Day 12
