The best things in life are often times magical. Children,pets, good health, and perhaps a job we can be proud of, are all things we may have in our lives to be thankful for. Every day when I wake up I am surrounded with such blessings. Although, it is unfortunate that we sometimes take the things which are most precious to us for granted. I too am guilty for not appreciating what I do have, instead of only concentrating on what I don’t have. We are only human after all.
I will begin sharing what I am grateful for, and perhaps all of you out there can also be thinking of what you are thankful for as well. First and foremost I am thankful for my children. I am so grateful that they are healthy, and even though as kids cannot be happy all the time, they are in fact happy for being loved, and taken care of. The second thing I am thankful for are my fur-babies. The cats, and dogs may not know it, but they too are healthy, happy, loved, and they make my heart happy. The third thing I am grateful for are my friends. Outside of my family circle, I have the greatest friends a girl could ever have, and I am quite fortunate that I have people in my life I can lean on if the need were to ever arise. Finally, I am thankful for the courage I have to chase my dreams. It took so many years drowning in my fears, and allowed myself to believe that I would never achieve them. Now, when I look at myself in the mirror I see the magic within, and I know that believing in myself is the greatest gift I could ever give to not only myself, but to others as well.
It is not always as easy as it sounds, but if you look at what is right in front of you, I mean really look, you will see the magic you have been blessed with too. No one is ever completely blind to what’s in front of them, but sometimes it can be hard to face head on. Some people are not as lucky as you and I may be, but it is not the only reason to give up if you feel as though you have nothing. We all have something to be thankful for. All you have to do is at least name one, may it be your good health, or a great job, whatever you can look at and say yes I am thankful for, and fill in your own blanks. Life is all about discovery, find out who you are, say it out loud what you are grateful for, and then you can finally see that you are not alone. You do have something, or someone in your life that you can proudly say you are thankful for who or what which is in your life.
Life is never perfect, no matter how hard we try. We may find ourselves even lost at times, but don’t give up. The answers or guidance we seek may have been right there in front of us all along. You must believe in yourself, be thankful for what you do have, let magic take its course, and always dream big.
