Warning: Large doses of corny optimism, inspiration, and self-reflection ahead. Proceed with care.
I was going through my Tumblr feed the other day and I found this, I did not write any of it and I wish I could cite it but there seems to be no source or indication as to who may have come up with it. However, I think it would be a fun idea to try and self-reflect and to try and come up with your own.
Mine was: I am thankful for my annoying adorable kitten that cries for table scraps all the time because it means that I can afford to eat and then give away some.
“I am thankful for…
The taxes I pay, because it means I am employed.
The clothes that fit a little too snug, because it means I have enough to eat.
My shadow that watches me work, because it means I am in the sunshine.
A lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning, and gutters that need fixing, because that means I have a home.
All the complaints I hear about the government, because it means we have freedom of speech.
The parking spot I find at the far end of the lot, because it means I am capable of walking and I have been blessed with a car.
My huge heating bill, because it means I am warm.
The lady behind me in church who sings off-key, because that means I can hear.
The pile of laundry and ironing, for it means I have clothes to wear.
The alarm that goes off in the early morning hours, because it means that I am alive.”
