Ten Things I'm Thankful For

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I thought this week I would write a post about what I am thankful for.

Too often, people get caught up in the happening of their lives, and don't have the time to give thanks to all of the wonderful parts of their lives. I often fall vicim to this as well because my life has been insanely busy with just starting college, and trying to figure out how to manage all of my time. I think it's extremely important, though, to step back and be thankful for all of the good in our lives - it not only puts things into perspective, but I find that it also helps life seem a little easier. Suddenly all of the hard parts of life are easier, because you see life isn't all bad after all. 

Ten Things I'm Thankful For
1. My family
2. My friends
3. My animals
3. Being able to go to college
4. Having a home to go home to during the holidays
5. All of my favorite books
6. Coffee (I am a college student after all...)
7. Having a mom who taught me how to cook for myself
8. Living in a place where people can practice any religion they choose
9. The holiday season
10. Harry Potter, because why not?

Even if you don't celebrate Thanksgiving, this time of year is a great time to step back and reflect on all of the good things in your life. Everyone has something, and honestly it gives you the warm-fuzzies that are so often associated with the holiday season (and who doesn't want warm-fuzzies?!).

What are you grateful for?

Thank you so much for reading, and I hope you have a great day! :)


  1. Great post! I don't celebrate Thanksgiving because it's not a thing in my country but it's nice, as you said, to step back and thank God, the Universe, your family, whatever you believe in, for having what you got. I won't sit down at the table with my family, eat turkey and thank everyone but I'll sit down in my bed and think about all the things I'm grateful for. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts! x

  4. These posts are just so nice. They let us know that bloggers have a bit more depth to them than just being into fashion or whatever. Really nice post.

  5. I'm thankful for the holiday season as well. It's so festive around this time of year, I can't help it.

  6. This is a really great post - we often feel like what we have is normal but it actually isn't. I'm also very grateful for family, friends and a country where you can believe whatever you want.
