Thanksgiving Gratitude

Imagine how happy you’d be if…: 

  • You had a warm home to sleep in every night 
  • You could afford to put food on your table every day 
  • You had people who loved you and cared for you 
  • You had access to online learning in the palm of your hand 
  • You were able to enjoy some luxury items like TV, nights out and new clothes 

Oh what? You have all of those things, and more? Thankfully, most of us have a nice quality of life. We can sleep in our comfortable warm beds, after a nice hearty meal, have people we can talk to when we need it and plenty of other useful things in our lives.  

Though we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in Ireland, it’s a perfect opportunity to take notice of all that we have and be thankful for it. Maybe we’re struggling with our finances, maybe we’ve more credit card debt than we like or the mortgage payments are on the high side. For anybody that’s starting on a journey to become debt free or just get on top of their financial situation, we very often focus on the negative things. We wished we didn’t over spend, we wished we made better choices, we wished we’d been better at saving.  

But let’s take some time today to be thankful of all of the little things that we take for granted every day. Look around at all that you have, all of the people that you spend time with, all of the beautiful items in your home that you treasure, all of the advances in the world that have made our lives easier. Let’s be thankful for what we have.
