One of the people I follow on Twitter, @VoiceInRecovery, does a daily hashtag tweet where she asks people what they are grateful for. I always try to think of at least one every day. Some days are easier than others. My gratefuls range from minor things (like a nice cup of tea) to big things (like the incredible community in my home country of New Zealand).
In Australia and New Zealand we don't celebrate Thanksgiving, obviously, as it's a US holiday. However, due to the pervasive nature of US culture, it's impossible to avoid Thanksgiving. Even if we don't celebrate the holiday itself, it's still a good time to think about what we are thankful for.
So, here are things I'm thankful for, in no particular order:
- My family
- My husband
- My husband's family
- My fur babies
- My friends
- My ablebodiedness
- My home
- My car
- My job
I could go on and on. Once I start thinking about what I'm thankful for, the list becomes endless. I really am incredibly lucky.
What are you thankful for?
