There is always something to be thankful for! Life is so much more worthwhile when you take the time to cherish the moments in life. Life is short, and full of ups and downs, but it’s up to you to make the best out of this journey.
1. Second chances:
No matter who we are or where we come from, we’ve all had a second chance to get it right at some point in our lives.
Turning points in our lives. The “Ah-Ha” moments where everything that God has been trying to reveal to you comes together and makes sense.
If you’re reading this you are blessed. Not only because you have internet access, but you are alive and breathing, and have a second chance to get it right.
4. Spiritual Growth:
Spiritual growth is when you are accepting these “second chances” and “revelations” into your life. God only works in you as much as you allow him. It’s always a choice.
5. For all the things money can’t buy:
Your friends, families, girlfriends/boyfriends, significant others, unconditional love, a genuine smile, an understanding heart, a heart-felt touch, reassurance, a support system, the voice of someone you love.
Be appreciative of your trials. We’re all afraid of going through life’s ‘downs’, but how can you truly know how far God can take you if you never experience trials. These are the moments that shape you, help you grow, and change you for the better. Tough times always reveal how strong you are, and how much God has your back.
Be thankful now! If you’re young, appreciate your youth. If you’re old, appreciate the years that God has given you to cultivate memories. You’re here in the now. Appreciate the now! Don’t always be looking for what’s going to come, appreciate whats going on in this very moment. So go hug your mama. Go kiss your grandparents. Make it right. Love while you can.
