How to be thankful .

I’m sure everyone has been in a position where they feel like they have nothing to be happy about, where they wish they had more. I’m sure that is normal for everyone.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had days that I’ve felt this way. Life just seems so hard sometimes that you feel like there is nothing you can do but be negative about it. Again, I’m sure everyone has had these days.
Well, I have learned (and still learning) to be more humble and thankful for what I have instead of what I don’t have.

Change your way of thinking in a hard situation (I know, that seems almost impossible to do), sit down, relax and just think… Think of what is putting you in that mood and then think about what you have to be happy about such as family, good friends, animals who just absolutely adore you. (Mine are obsessed with me, they follow me to the bathroom) I guarantee that the list of what you should be happy about outweighs the other list.

Think about what some people don’t have who would be happy to have what you do. 

Be thankful for the loved ones in your life. (Even if they drive you nuts)
Be thankful for your animals who show you unconditional love always.
Be thankful for having a job. (Which we all know is really hard to find)
Be thankful for living and breathing.
Be thankful for your babies.
Be thankful for being the good person you are.
Be thankful for little things.


I am thankful to be able to pay my own bills.

I am thankful for my husband and everything he has done for me and continues to do for me.

I am SO thankful for everyone who already loves our baby as much as we do.
