Happy Thanksgiving everybody!
I know this is technically still a couple of days early, but I figured that Random Sundays was just the perfect opportunity to write about this!
So Thanksgiving is supposed to be all about being thankful for what you have – but sometimes, it can be quite difficult what, exactly, you do have. So I figured that I should lead by example – and tell you what I’m thankful for!
1. I have a roof above my head
Especially with the cold days coming on, that’s definitely something to be grateful for!
2. I have food on my plate
Every single day – and I never have to doubt that.
3. I have books
So many of them.
Like, seriously – it’s probably kind of ridiculous.
But it’s also one of the things I’m most thankful for as well!
I seriously have some of the best friends one could ever wish for.
They know me, they get me – and somehow they still want to listen to me.
They listen to me, they help me if I have any problems, but they’re also happy to watch Disney movies and endless episode of Say Yes to the Dress.
What more could I need in a friend?
I have a lot of family, great family, smart family, annoying family – every single kind. And that’s just my sisters!
No, but seriously – family is definitely something that’s really easy to take for granted. So you know what? Give someone in your family an extra hug today!
Yeah, sure, I’m constantly stressed because I have so many deadlines. But you know what? That means that I actually get to study!
What’s more – I get to study in a country where going to college is not something that’s going to leave me with debt until I’ve approximately reached the age to retire, so I’m definitely thankful for that!
7. The bf
I have an amazing bf, who is patient enough to deal with all my weirdness, who loves my cooking, who’s cute, doesn’t mind giving me all the fleeces every single night because I’m cold again, and is just generally an amazing guy – definitely something to be grateful for!
I find it so incredibly normal that I have internet – that I get to connect with my friends even though they live hours away, that I get to read fanfiction, that I get to watch people’s lifes through their vlogs – that I even get to have this blog!
Not everybody has that luxury – of having internet at all, of having uncensured internet, … So it’s definitely something we should take the time to be grateful for!
9. My oven
I absolutely love baking, and since September I’ve had my own oven. Which means I get to bake what I want, when I want it. I absolutely love the opportunities for trying new recipes that gives me, and it was the one thing I insisted on wanting this year, so I’m definitely thankful for that 🙂
10. I’m alive
I exist, and I’m young, and I get to do with my life what I want to do with it – even if that statement is slightly less true for my generation than it has been for some of the previous ones. But you know what? I’m still alive. And that’s a pretty darn amazing thing to be thankful for.
What are some of the things you’re thankful for? Be sure to let me know below!
