25 Things I’m Thankful For

In honor of Thanksgiving, I wanted to do a post where I list just a few things I’m incredibly thankful for. Now, I know that pretty much everyone does posts like this around this time of the year, but I think that it’s important to keep remembering everything that we have to be thankful for, especially with all of the crazy stuff that has been happening around the world. I encourage you to sit down and do the same. It really puts things in perspective and always makes me feel better. So, here we go!

  1. My family: Despite all the ups and downs we face, they’re always for me no matter what, and I’m so incredibly grateful for that.
  2. The close relationship that I have with my family: I know a lot of people who, for whatever reason, does not like or have much to do with their family. I’m lucky enough to have a good relationship with most everyone in my family, and it means a lot to me.
  3. My boyfriend: I really don’t know what I would do without him. Just like my family, he’s always there for me when I need him, and I know he would do absolutely anything for me. I’m very lucky to have someone like him in my life.
  4. My boyfriend’s family: They’ve been very supportive of our relationship, and I’m so happy that he is able to enjoy the same close relationships with his family that I have with mine.
  5. My faith: Probably more than anything else, I am eternally grateful for my faith. It was the reason I was able to get through depression the first time around, and I know it won’t let me down this time.
  6. My friends: Through losing certain friends, I have come to realize how incredibly special and important true friends are. They are a really amazing blessing.
  7. My blog: I love it 🙂 I’m forever grateful that I have a place to go when I’m feeling particularly stressed, happy, anxious, excited, sad, etc.. It has made a huge difference in my life lately.
  8. Every person who has visited my blog: Seriously, thank you so much! It really means so much to me, and I would gladly do absolutely anything I can for you guys.
  9. My health: This is something I think so many people, especially me, take for granted, but it really is a blessing to have good health.
  10. My family’s health: Kind of going off of that, I know some people who are spending the holidays in the hospital with their sick mom, dad, grandmother, etc., and I really can’t imagine how hard that must be. I’m very grateful that everyone in my family is healthy and home, and I hope that those that are not have a speedy recovery.
  11. My counselor who has helped me through some really rough times: My counselor is an absolutely amazing lady. I’m not sure where I would be today if it wasn’t for her.
  12. My ability to go to college: Sometimes it’s easy to forget with all the homework and studying just what a privilege it is to go to college. Many people never get that opportunity, and I really am grateful for it (even though I don’t show it as much as I should).
  13. I have a place to live: This is something else I definitely take for granted, but there are so many people that don’t have a home to spend the holiday season in.
  14. Safety over Thanksgiving
  15. My dogs: Love my puppies 🙂
  16. The support I’ve received from my family: Over Thanksgiving, I had a conversation with my aunt who offered me so much support and love when it comes to me and my boyfriend. I really can’t describe how much it meant to me.
  17. The volunteer program I recently got accepted into at the local aquarium
  18. The amount of free time I’ve had recently to pursue different interests
  19. The college group I’ve started attending and the way they have made me feel welcome and included
  20. My country: Even though it can be a little crazy at times, I’m forever grateful that this country is still my home.
  21. The soldiers putting their lives on the line and being away from their families in order to defend my country: I know multiple new wives (I don’t know any husbands, but I’m definitely sure there are some) who are not spending their first Thanksgiving as a married couple with their significant other because they are off defending the country. I’m very grateful for their sacrifice.
  22. The public service people who keep us safe: All of them put their lives on the line as well to protect us, and I’m thankful for all they do.
  23. I have enough money to provide for my needs and then some
  24. The chance to start over in a new apartment in the Spring
  25. My relatively good grades this semester: Definitely needed some good grades to boost my GPA a little.

And that’s my 25! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!!
