Another month in 2022 is in my rearview mirror on my road to express thankfulness. This adventure sometimes becomes challenging, but I’m discovering many things to be thankful for daily. 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 344 of my 365 days of thankfulness.
Day 344 of my 365 Days of Thankfulness
On day 344 of my 365 days of thankfulness, I am grateful that Rooster and I have been walking for a solid year. We started making the daily trip to the gym last year in December. The only times we’ve missed are when the doors are closed for holidays or the week when we took a vacation. We are reaping the benefits of regular exercise. All of our numbers are going down. Our goal is to go off all diabetes medication, and we are close. Neither of us has been sick since we started the routine. There are days when we don’t feel like going for our long walk around the track, but we get over that as soon as we start the process. Time flies so fast. I am grateful that we started seeing the benefit of regular exercise.
This old lady is glad she started walking a year ago.
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.
