Day 277 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 tragedies in the world makes me happy. It motivates me to work toward positive change. 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 June? This post covers day 277 of my 365 days of thankfulness.  

Day 277 of my 365 Days of Thankfulness

On day 277 of my 365 days of thankfulness, I am grateful that my numbers were good during my six-month doctor’s visit. My A1C is 5.9, much better than it was when we started our diet and walking routine. I am bragging, but I am happy that I am getting healthier. This experience has taught me that the little things we do to improve ourselves ultimately add a lot to our quality of life. I believe everyone can take steps to improve their life. The weird things that have happened over the past couple of years with the virus and the lockdown taught me to take control of my fitness. Big pharma and the healthcare system don’t have all the answers. Most of the time, they don’t want to teach you how to get well. They only want to prescribe another pill. I am grateful I learned to take control of my health.

This old Lady is getting healthy.

I have 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 before your face because you hear the world is falling apart. Let me tell you a secret. The world always falls 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.
