Things To Be Thankful For

Hello, everyone! Today is Thanksgiving for us Americans. Besides parades, feasts and football, the Thanksgiving holiday celebrates friendship and cooperation, and of course, giving thanks! It's about recognizing the things and the people that make your life awesome and giving them the credit they deserve. No matter what nationality you are, I think it's important to acknowledge just how great your life can be, even if you don't have a set holiday for it!

If you're at a point in your existence where things aren't going quite as planned it can be hard to see the good in life, and it's far too easy overlooking the little details that make life so magical. That's why it's my job to step in and bring you back to the basics! Here are a few of the most simplest (yet specific) things to be thankful for.

1.) Hands
Hands are great. Could you imagine putting your hair in a ponytail without them?! We'd literally be screwed if we didn't have hands.

2.) Pets
My life would be a lot less grand if it wasn't for these two. Whenever I get the chance to be around them, I'll take it. It's the biggest stress reliever in the world!

3.) A Full Fridge
Do I really need to explain this one?

4.) Shoes
Just shoes.

5.) Funny Text Posts
Everyone needs a chuckle now and then.

6.) Blankets
They offer a layer of warmth and protection from any ghosts, goblins or monsters you might face during your sleep. 3 cheers for blankets!

7.) Heat

8.) Sweatpants
If there's ever a weekend where I'm not in my sweatpants and slippers, it's not a good weekend. Could you imagine being stuck in uncomfortable clothing all day, everyday? I am very thankful for the genius that made sweatpants a thing.

9.) Lip Balm
Without it, the world would be a very chapped place.

10.) Health
This is something that most people take for granted. You're not gonna live forever, so enjoy your internal youth while it lasts!

11.) Talents
You may argue that you don't have a talent, but I'll tell you that's a load of crap. Whether it's something musical, artistic or simply the art of making someone feel better, we all have talents, and we should be thankful for them.

12.) Movies
There's nothing better than cuddling up in a BLANKET next to the HOT FIRE in your SWEATPANTS while watching a movie. It's one of my favourite things to do!

13.) Family
There aren't many people in this world that you can freely burp in front of. Be grateful that your family puts up with your shenanigans and decides to love you anyway!

14.) Eyes
There are so many beautiful things in this world and we're lucky we get to see some of them. Without your eyes, you would be able to read this post!

Those are just a few of the things we should be thankful for. Of course there are loads more, but I'd be here forever if I were to list everything. Thank you for spending your time on this little blog! I appreciate it a lot, and I am very thankful for you.

Happy Thanksgiving! (Or any other day).
