Thanks, Day 152: Being Thankful is Super Important

Sunday, June 1st, 2014

12 days since my last Thankfulness post… sorry… I’m struggling with staying on top of this because our family has struggled through much of the past few weeks with emotional crap related to all different types of stuff. But being thankful is probably most important when we’re feeling like crap, right?

Remembering things we’re thankful for helps put things in perspective.

For example, when our friend passed away recently at only 34 years old, I realized how thankful I was for my health and, even moreso, for solid people in my life to lean on. Without being able to lean on each other, these tragedies are much, much harder to take.

I’ve been annoyed about many different issues, angry at several different people, and tired of many things going on around me… but I’m here, I have two beautiful kids, I have an awesome wife, and I have tons of other family and friends that matter much more than the people, places, and things that are pissing me off. Not to mention, I have a roof over my head, a great landlord, a decent playing job, and means to support my family and then some.

Being thankful is a great practice for keeping things in perspective. Being thankful can get us through the day.
