Being Thankful Beyond The Usual Stuff…

Being Thankful Beyond The Usual Stuff…

It’s November and the most thankful time of the year. So many people are doing the 30 day challenge of everything they are thankful for all over social media. I mean I get it but it’s all the same. I’m thankful for my family, friends, pets, house, car, job and drunk uncle Louie. I know you are thankful, I know you are grateful and it’s the Thanksgiving season but can we please switch it up?

I’ve challenged my blog group and my social media friends to join in being more creative. It’s a given that we are all thankful for the good things in our life like the list above. But let’s get crazy and list stuff we might not really think about being thankful for. Be humorous and fun. We all love our children and are thankful for them but can’t we be thankful when they move out? Live their own lives and produce grandkids for us? Can’t we be thankful for the extra room in our homes now that they’re gone? Lower utility bills and grocery bills? I know I’m thankful for all that.

We are thankful for our jobs but can’t we be thankful for paid vacations, sick days and the boss getting rid of that mean girl receptionist at the front desk? Can’t we be thankful for the cocktail lunches and the upcoming Christmas party? Maybe be thankful for a raise or Christmas bonus. Or be thankful the economy is good and you can find a new job if you need too.
