Write About It Wednesdays: Thankfulness


In honor of Thanksgiving being TOMORROW I thought I would jot down a little list of all the things I am thankful for. Some may be considered unconventional, but none the less, I’m still thankful for them.

  1. My family, by blood, my marriage, and by choice. Those who are always by my side, through thick and thin.
  2. My education. It may be stressful, hardwork, and sometimes defeating, but the rewards are great, and I am insanely lucky to recieve the education that I have thus far recieved.
  3. Color. Because I couldn’t imagine a life without color, it truly beautifies life.
  4. Smiles. And laughs… and hugs for that matter. Nothing spreads joy quite like those three things.
  5. Water. I mean, without it we wouldn’t even have the ability to be grateful for anything.
  6. Airplanes. Without these magestic flying beasts, I wouldn’t be able to see the majority of my family… ever. And that, frankly would suck.
  7. My mountains. Those beautiful Blue Ridge peaks make me so happy that I live where I do.
  8. Bean Boots. My poor feet get cold so easily, and they keep me warm when I most need it.
  9. Seasons. All four of those great beauties. I could not fathom living in a place that didn’t experience all of the seasons.
  10. People who do the “dirty jobs”. The sanitation workers, the trash|collectors, the people who do the things that no one else want to do.
  11. Stars. For me, they’re a reminder of everything else that is out there. They put life in perspective.
  12. Bonfires. Friends, hot cocoa, blankets, smores, sparklers, and glow stick fights.
  13. Wildflowers. Because they’re like the paint splatters in the woods.
  14. My lungs. They keep me going man.

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving, spending time with the people you love. What are you thankful for? Let me know in the comments!

Peace out, enjoy life, and live the adventure!
