I was visiting a number of blogs earlier today and chanced upon a couple of posts on goal-setting or bucket list for 2017 and I cannot help but feel great that a lot of people are including “be thankful” and “be grateful” in their lists. I would like to believe that nothing could go wrong if we include gratitude and thanksgiving in our plans. We ought to make it a personal goal to be mindful about being grateful and thankful at all times. Keeping an attitude of gratitude, after all, entails a big amount of conscious effort to continue to focus on what’s good and what’s positive whatever life throws at us. And, sometimes, the only difference between a good and a bad day is our attitude towards it! Now, more than ever, we need to persevere to always see the good in people and situations. Gratitude also allows for more blessings and happiness to fill our lives!

Today I am thankful:

  • for love and intimacy :heart:
  • for the magnificent sun finally chasing the gloomy rainy weather away
  • for the incoming opportunities for my blogs
  • for precious time spent with my boys  :heart:
  • for the lovely little wild flower Jared picked to surprise me when I got home  :rose:
  • for the time to rest and relax when I need it most
  • for the opportunity to catch up with mum blogger and pr friends
  • for coffee  and tea {especially during those very cold mornings}
  • for The Goo Goo Doll’s song, Boxes
  • for “me time” in the morning
  • for the marching bands and colorful processions at yesterday’s fiesta
  • for my new notebooks!
  • for those grocery errands that I enjoy the most
  • for ginataang tulingan  :-D 

How about you, what are you thankful for today?

Spread the love
