I am sure there are plenty of posts floating around telling you to be thankful this holiday season.
I say, screw that.
Be thankful all the time!
I read something the other day that hit me pretty hard;
“If you woke up this morning with only the things you thanked God for last night, what would you have.”
That morning I would have had nothing.
That’s not good, Kristen.
I guess in the face of something like that you can either be like, “ooh, I suck, blah..blah” or you can change.
I chose to change.
Each day I acknowledge what I’m thankful for. I remind my husband and family what they mean to me. I thank God for the strength he gave me to endure the day and all of the blessing he has brought into my life. I pat myself on the back and thank my body for carrying me through the day. I take a good look around at all the STUFF I have and remember that I am one blessed lady.
It’s not about things or money – it’s about the quality of your LIFE.
Be thankful for what you have, and be thankful for what you don’t have.
Work to achieve your goals and pray for strength when you are faced with struggles.
Life is a gift in itself, don’t waste it.
Place no trust in tomorrow.
