If I've learned anything in my 38 years, it's that a grateful (and gracious) heart can take you pretty far. Often farther than you'd think. Sometimes it's no small feat to remain thankful for what you've been blessed with in life (if you're reading this blog, I can practically guarantee you have a *lot* to feel blessed about), but it's a vital and important skill to cultivate.
Crawling into bed and knowing you have a warm place to sleep at night.
Opening the fridge and knowing - even if you don't feel like breaking out a frying pan - you not only have food to eat, but options to choose from.
Waking up in the morning. That's it. Just waking up! That's a pretty awesome thing, actually.
I hope you're able to enjoy time with friends and family this Thanksgiving holiday. Remember to check in every now and again to remind yourself that life, and all its imperfections, is worth feeling grateful for.
