Gratitude List for Thanksgiving Day


For a long time in my life I experienced some great sadness in my life.  I had fallen into some pretty bad habits, and overall I was not very happy. Then I heard about the gratitude list.  At first when I was in this depressive state it was hard to be grateful for anything.  But I had heard that people who were grateful and did this gratitude list thing were significantly more happy in their life.  So I began with just saying 5 things in the morning that I was grateful for.  As I began this exercise I was able to extend it throughout my day and give joy for the things that were happening exactly when they were happening.  I soon began feeling this funny feeling in my body that I couldn’t explain.  I hadn’t experienced it for awhile, but I thought that it might be joy, and it was.  Once I began to experience all of the amazing things that I had in my life, I was able to really experience joy.  It wasn’t based on what other people had and what I wanted, but what I had and what I wanted.  So today I am going to share a list of the things that I am grateful for. I would love if you could share some of the things that you are grateful for on this wonderful Thanksgiving day.
