Thursday Thankful List

Today, I am seeing life with eyes wide open by remaining thankful at ALL times. I’ve noticed a lot of people refuse to believe they deserve happiness and therefore, deserve to feel thankful at all times. I’ve noticed people who are selective about when to experience and showcase gratitude. What I also have noticed is that the only way to truly be able to notice all there is to be thankful for is by living life with eyes wide open. Actively rather than passively. Cheerfully rather than sullenly.

Trust me, I get it, I get it, I get it. There are always things that somehow bring us down, bother us, occupy our attention span and thought process. Today, I encourage you to combat every feeling of annoyance, sadness, overwhelming, depression by saying thank you. For anything, for everything. Seriously….try it.

There can {and should be} thankfulness in the here and now! Below you’ll find this week’s Thursday Thankful List as well as some lovely thankful lists from Twitter girlfriends. xx
