Day 145 of my 365 Days of Thankfulness

Another month in 2022 is in my rearview mirror on my road to express thankfulness. This adventure sometimes becomes a challenging task, but I’m discovering so many things to be thankful for each day. Focusing on the positive despite all the tragedy in the world makes me happy. It motivates me to work toward a positive change, and being grateful drives away fear. I can see so many potholes in the road, but I start my day searching for the blessings in my life. These events or things might seem small and insignificant, but they add up to a giant pile of happiness at the end of the road. I am inviting you to come along for the ride. Why don’t we all travel the road of gratefulness in May? This post covers day 145 of my 365 days of thankfulness.  

Day 145 of my 365 Days of Thankfulness

On day 145 of my 365 days of thankfulness, I am grateful I knew Yacky Byers. He was a unique individual and a true character. The best storyteller I ever met and a connoisseur of trivia with a biker’s heart. Born on Halloween and passed on Friday, 13. Enough said. Rest in peace, Yacky. We will all miss you. This world was a better place because you were here.

This old lady was sorry to see him go.

This old lady has learned thanksgiving is a matter of choice. Don’t let anyone tell you differently. Even in dark places, it is good to seek the light. My blessings may not be the same as yours because I’m old. I bet if you dig deep, you can come up with something to be thankful for today. Don’t neglect to see the good things right in front of your face because you hear the world is falling apart. Let me tell you a secret. The world is always falling apart when you focus on the doom and gloom. You won’t always find thankfulness an easy road, but it’s an adventure we can all take together. What are you thankful for today? Leave a comment, and bless my heart. I  am not being sarcastic when I say that. I could use the encouragement as much as the next person.

    Thank you so much! I needed to hear these words. I have to keep reminding myself that I have a great life no matter what the world outside looks like, or my struggles. But we forget sometimes and get sucked into the gloom around us and challenges we face.

    Your thankfulness posts have been inspiring to me. I’m thankful today for this post and for my life🙏🏽
