Gratitude With a Side of Gravy

First of all I would like to say Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow bloggers and subscribers! Today is the perfect time to take a minute to stop and think about all the blessings in our lives to be thankful for. This is something I will admit I have struggled with, as sometimes I tend to be pessimistic and focus on what I don’t have rather than appreciating everything God has given me. I think it’s really important to remember that everyone is blessed in different ways and that you can’t compare your own blessings with others- it’s like apples and oranges.

I am so thankful for my loving family, supportive friends, and good health. I am thankful to have been given the opportunity to travel, follow my passion, go to school, work hard, and freedom to make my own decisions.  I am thankful that I was raised with strong beliefs that have shaped me into the person I am today. I am also thankful for puppies, sunshine, baking cupcakes, warm hugs, dancing in the rain, Christmas lights, laughter, high heels, piña coladas, sparkles, and of course this blog.

Every day you live to take another breath on this earth is a reason to be thankful. It’s so easy get caught up in the world and take your blessings for granted, but the more you take moments to be grateful for the little things will truly give you a fruitful and happy life. Wishing you all a wonderful and blessed night!
