Life itself is a beautiful thing. I’m forever grateful for the chance to enjoy it.
I get it, there’s things that may not be pleasant all around us, but I try not to meditate pink those things. I know they there and a part of life. What’s more amazing that that negative is life itself.
We were created so uniquely different that getting to know others and learning from others is amazing. We like and dislike many different things. When I look around I see so many beautiful things in life to be thankful for.
I love nature. To see the trees, flowers, bodies of water is an awesome gift we were given. To see little ones grow is beautiful. I really do think life is a beautiful thing that we were granted.
What do you find that’s beautiful that you’re thankful for?
There are so many things for me to be grateful for everyday. Today I am thankful my body has been able to handle my surgeries.
I am not the smallest, or even the biggest person out there. I have many things I want to work on physically. With that, I’m still confident in who I am. The best thing about my body is that I’ve had a few surgeries in my adult years and my body was able to handle it!
I actually had three knee surgeries in three years and healed really well from those. To say I’ve put my body through some things to feel better and it has held up is a major accomplishment. I know many people can’t do it, so I’m very grateful I was able to handle them all.
What about your body are you grateful for?
I’m grateful for so many things each and everyday. I make it a point to be thankful for at least a minimum of three things each and every day. No matter how rough and crazy a day I may have had, there has to be something to be thankful and grateful for.
This month I’m especially grateful for the time I got to spend with my niece and nephew. They make any day all worth it. It seems that when I’m at my worst, they do something surprising and makes it all better.
I’m grateful for my mom. She’s always there to offer her support. It doesn’t matter if it’s a listening ear or a visit or a few words of wisdom. For all of that, I’ll always be eternally thankful for.
I’m so thankful the weather wasn’t as hot as it was last summer. I don’t do heat all that well. So cooler is most definitely better for me. Give me fall and winter anytime over summer. Sometimes here in the south fall isn’t much better than summer. However, winter in most situations are the best.
I’m grateful for my business coach. I was in a bit of a funk and just a brief conversation with her bought me back with a much clearer head and more focused and ready to go now. There’s nothing like having someone who can just listen and ask a few questions to get you back on the right track. She really is awesome!!!!
Those are a few things that I’m grateful for. Of course there are so many more, but those are a few that make the list quite often. So tell me, what are you grateful for? Please feel free to share.
Family is so important. I’m very grateful and thankful for my family. They are my rock. They support all my endeavors even if they don’t always understand. When I say family, I don’t just mean those though blood, but my close knit family of friends. Last year was a bit rough and my family, blood and friends, have been there by my side and shown support like no other. It’s times when you’re down or going through some things you find out who your family truly is.
Definition of Family:
a group consisting of parents and children living together in a household OR all the descendants of a common ancestor.
When I think of family of course I think of my immediate family and the extended family. Then I think of my friends that have been by my side like 2 flat tires!!! Yes I went there. I have my BFF in Utah, as well as my close friends here in GA. These ladies and gents have held me together when I wanted to fall apart. When I needed to scream real loud or just drink myself to sleep, (that’s only like 3 glasses) they were there for me. I like to think I’m there for them just the same way. To loose any of them would be so devastating.
Family is the one thing that keeps me sane when going through some rough times. When you have someone that supports your goals and visions without really understanding themselves, you have someone that is there for you. The question is, are you giving that same kind of support. I love to support those around me. It’s just as important to support those within your family in even more so. Doesn’t matter if their family by blood, marriage or friendship. Support is always the key. Yes, support, not excuses. Excuses are just that, excuses. I see them as reasons why someone doesn’t want to help. Yes, some of them are truly legit and I don’t ever want to take away from that. When I say I plan to do something I do plan to do it unless some unforeseen situation come up. I expect the same from others too. One thing I can say about my family, they are always on top of things. Very rarely, if at all, do I hear the flimsy excuses.
When it comes to family, what does it mean to you? What do you expect from family?
