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 362 of my 365 days of thankfulness.
Day 362 of my 365 Days of Thankfulness
On day 362 of my 365 days of thankfulness, I am grateful that the holidays are over and life is returning to normal. At this point, I don’t mind the everyday grind. I am looking forward to 2023. I feel like the coming year is filled with endless possibilities. It’s not my practice to make resolutions. I’m the sort of person who sets goals for herself. I’ve managed to accomplish I have managed to accomplish at least three goals I made last year. One of the challenges I made for myself was to end the year healthier than when I started. Rooster and I went to the gym six days a week, and we managed to cut sugar and most carbs out of our diet. Both of our numbers are improving. I also set a goal to edit the second book in my Henhouse Series and write at least one book during the year. Goal accomplished and more. I wanted to experience 365 days of thankfulness and write a poem every day. Wow, I am grateful that I am almost at the end of my year of gratitude.
This old lady is glad she achieved her goals.
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.
