Just Thankful

We have all had our fair share of negative experiences; like when a family member perhaps died, or the person that we had feelings for didn't return the love, or even getting fired or turned down from a job.

On the other hand, we have also had tons of positive experiences, whether we may count those as the ones where we met a new friend, got into the college of our dreams, traveled to a new place, or even got to eat a warm meal at the end of the day. Earlier this week, my friend sent me a video on Facebook and I didn't actually look at it for a couple of days thinking it was just another meme that I didn't have time for. However, when I opened the video it was one of those experiences where you feel all warm and fuzzy and grateful for life.

It was called "Ten Signs You're Doing Well in Life (Even If You Don't Feel Like It)".

The first sign was if you have a roof over your head.
The second sign was if you ate today.
The third sign was if you have a good heart.
The fourth sign was if you wish good for others.
The fifth sign was if you have clean water.
The sixth sign was if someone cares for you.
The seventh was if you forgive others.
The eighth was if you have clean clothes.
The ninth was if you stay in faith.
The tenth, and most gratifying for me, was "if you're breathing today."


The little things are so easy to take for granted and it is so incredibly easy to get lost into the cold weather and dark days or whatever other troubles we may face. But the little things are what matter the most. How ironic that those are the things so easy to forget!
