Howdy! WELCOME to another Motivational Monday. Can you guys believe November is almost over? Thanksgiving is suddenly upon us. This means I get to take a break from school and spend some time with my family. I’m so excited.
“There is always something to be thankful for,” but this week, those things are especially obvious. Take some time to really appreciate all that you have to be thankful for. With the gratitude journal I started on the last Motivational Monday (and hopefully you did, too!), I’m really seeing things everyday that I’m thankful for!
And hey, even on the bad days, at least you woke up in the morning… At least you got to visit my blog… At least you get to be you!
For me, I’m thankful for so many things, but here are just a few.
I’m thankful for my family!
Even though I’ve moved away from them this year, I feel like I’m learning to appreciate them more. Absence really does make the heart grow fonder. I’m thankful for their support and all they do for me! And even though my extended family is far away, I keep them in my heart and know they’re thinking of me!
I’m thankful for my wonderful boyfriend who constantly encourages me in all I do.
Even when he doesn’t always understand why I am the way I am, he supports my dreams and goals! He’s my biggest cheerleader. Plus, he’s really cute!
Super thankful for my friends, both new and old.
At college, I’m making new friends and I’m so happy to find new people to get to know. My views are constantly challenged, and I’m exposed to so many new things. Old friends remind me of where I’m coming from. Reconnecting with them and staying in touch fills my heart with joy.
I’m thankful for the education I’m receiving.
College is an opportunity that not many people get. The fact that I’m able to learn advanced information so that I can help others in the future is incredible!
I’m thankful I have so many things to be thankful for! What are you thankful for today?
