I saw Miley Cyrus post this quote on instagram today and I haven’t stopped thinking about it. I like to have 3 things that I am thankful for every day. Giving thanks for the things you are grateful for is definitely an important part of life. Too often we go through life wanting more. Social media is incredible in the sense that we can so easily share information and experiences with other people but at the same time it is easy to look at other peoples lives and be envious of what they have.
We each have a cards that we play in the game of life. We have our ups and our downs. Just because you’re on a lull doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be thankful for the things you do have. I am not saying that the negative things happening in your life don’t matter because they definitely do I am just saying that even when everything seems to bad simple things can make you happy too.
Maybe you’re driving to work and you see a bird that is rare. You can be thankful to mother nature that she provides us with simple moments of beauty. Be thankful that you have food on your plate, public transport, a job. Be thankful for the friends you have, that you have connection to the internet. Be thankful that society is so much more accepting than it once was. There are endless things to be thankful for even in your darkest hours.
Next time you’re having a bad day I encourage you to think about the good things and be thankful no matter how simple a change in mindset can really help get you back to a positive frame of mind.
Today I am thankful for the amazing friends that I have. I am thankful that I have 3 nutritional meals. I am thankful that I live in a country that so widely accepts diversity and I am thankful for you reading this blog. I hope it helps you see a brighter day.
