20 Things To Be Thankful For In Life

by - Monday, March 27, 2017

Recently, I've been questioning life, why it was so hard for me. I mean, why is it that whatever you wanted in life are sometimes, most of the time rather, can't be yours. But then, I realized, sometimes it’s easier to focus on what we don’t have, rather than what we do have. It’s important to take time out and remember all of the things to be thankful for that many of us take for granted.

1. Good Health
- Always am. Even if your health isn’t that great, you likely still have some working parts to be thankful for.

2. Money in your Wallet
- Having just a few coins makes you richer than most people on Earth.

3. Good Friends
- Often, it’s the quality of friendships, not the quantity.

4. Your Parents
- Even if they’re dysfunctional, they gave you life. 

5. Weekends or Rest Days
- There's something magical about rest days. 

6. Learning from Mistakes
- If we never made mistakes, we wouldn’t learn much so it is one of those things we should be thankful for.

7. Having a Home
- Whether you live in an apartment, a mansion, or a tent, having a place to call home is something to be thankful for.

8. Ability to Read
- Not everyone can read, so be thankful.

9. Breathing Fresh Air
- Being able to step outside to breathe in fresh air is a good reminder how many little things we should be thankful for.

10. A Bed to Sleep
- A bed is one of those things that’s easy to take for granted, until you don’t have one.

11. Safety
- Being able to wake up without immense fear frees us up to really live life.

12. Time
- Although we often don’t think there’s enough of it, time is something we shouldn’t take for granted.

13. Clean Water
- Many people on earth lack access to clean water, mind you. 

14. Mobile Phones
- Not everyone can afford a mobile phone. So be thankful for having one even it's not an IPhone. 

15. Holidays
- Any reason to celebrate is something we should be thankful for.

16. Freedom of Speech
- Being able to express your thoughts and feelings freely should never be taken for granted.

17. Waking Up Today
- Simply waking up today means you have things to be thankful for. A chance for you to change whatever mistake it is you've done yesterday. 

18. Eyesight
- Being able to see allows us to view the world’s beauty. Living in the darkness is not fun, at all. 

19. Your Job
- For all the hard work you put in and for the job that pays your rent. It may not be the best yet, but it could help you get the best. It’s one door that will lead to another. It’s a door that you had to fight to get to. Be grateful the door opened.

20. Happiness
- Happiness is a misunderstood, often misquoted commodity. To be loved is to be happy, to be an artist is to be happy, to walk in a park alone with your thoughts is to be happy. Happiness is how you define it. Many people are robbed of their happiness for they often try to follow someone else’s definition of it. It’s a rare commodity today, one that the world is scrambling to own. Be grateful for your happiness.

There are still a lot of things that we should be thankful for. It's going to eat up too much of our time writing it, honestly. Now is the time for both of us to realize those things and be thankful after all. I thank Him also for making me realize it earlier. I also thank my family, my kids, my closest friends who are always there for me. Again, THANK YOU. ♥
