I'm thankful for...

Today is not Thanksgiving day, however, everyday I try to remember what to be thankful for. Especially on not so fabulous days. Maintaining a positive attitude I feel is key in order to pursue any goal in life. Maybe, I am too optimistic and naive, but I rather be in this state of mind, than be know as a 'debbie-downer.'

When I get in my bitter-salty moods, the only way I can snap out of it, is to write down what is important. Truly important. Not my favorite Bratz doll, although I do find them amazingly beautiful. Not my build-a-turtle with diamonds and pearls, even though she is truly fabulous. Not my cellphone or any other electronic device, making my social world fairly easy.

If I stripped all the accessories, decorations, or anything else I truly do not need in order to live, what am I ultimately thankful for?

I try not be cliche' with terms or statements that lack meaning. Such as just writing 'life.' Be thankful for life, yes, but I find that too broad and does not really grasp the core of the exercise. I would prefer writing down, 'being thankful for living a life where I never had to worry about my basic needs.' I have received many wants in my life that I have convinced myself to be a need.

But, I truly cannot say that I lived a life and did not have to worry about the necessities, food, clothing, shelter, and love. If anything, I have had only options for each of those categories. So, even though I didn't have a fabulous day mentally, I know today was probably worst for someone else in the world.

To be thankful for list

Even though I am the biggest cheerleader and motivator for my life, I too, have to sit back and remember what is really important. Cliche' Alert: I have to remember that plans are wonderful, but I have to take one day at a time.

I'll share with you my first three:

1. Living a life without worry of receiving my needs.
2. My curly hair.
3. Another day to pursue my dreams.

 I hope you take the time to discover what you are thankful for.

Here's to always being your BEST, even on your not so fabulous days!
