My Gratitude List: 25 Things I’m Grateful For

Lifestyle, Ramblings 0 comments


I’m already listening to Christmas music, but don’t worry, I am still all for Thanksgiving.

In the spirit of Thanksgiving (and brightening up my week), I decided to make a gratitude list. Contrary to popular belief, Thanksgiving is not just about eating good food, watching football, and Black Friday shopping.

I often get distracted by life, as most of us do, and forget to appreciate everything great I have going on. Thanksgiving is a perfect time to sit down and reflect on everything in my life that I am blessed with. So, here we go!

My gratitude list:

  1. My family – I’m starting off with the most generic one, but it’s still true. I am so blessed to have such a wonderful family, no matter how dysfunctional they are.
  2. My friends – I would have nothing without them. My sanity would be gone.
  3. My education
  4. Google (how else would I get through college?)
  5. Coffee
  6. Sweaters
  7. Blankets
  8. Naps
  9. My bed
  10. Chocolate
  11. A great hug
  12. A lazy, rainy day
  13. My health
  14. Music
  15. Good hair days
  16. The little money I do have (college is rough folks)
  17. Pasta…….or carbs in general
  18. Netflix
  19. Dry shampoo
  20. The holiday season
  21. Good laughs with my friends
  22. Makeup – one of my favorite forms of expression
  23. Long, hot showers
  24. The food I’m about to devour on Thanksgiving
  25. An exciting future

(And by special request, I am grateful for Dane McConnell. I hope you’re happy Dane)

With Thanksgiving a short, three days away, I hope you all sit down and make your gratitude list. It opens your eyes to how much you have in your life to be thankful for.

Have a happy Thanksgiving!
