What are you thankful for?

Every day I always go to work with my cousins. I tend to fall asleep every time we’re on the road but this morning, I felt different. I don’t know why but I feel so energetic and positive this morning.

Upon reaching Pasig area, I heard the girl on the radio saying that we should be thankful for all of the blessings that we have, regardless if it is small or big.

What struck me most is her last line before she played the music.. “How about you, what are you thankful for?”

I listed a couple of things I am grateful for today:

  1. Be able to face the struggle this day because I am awake.
  2. My furry baby, Princess (my dog).
  3. Arrived safe in the office.
  4. Those lovely flowers I see every day when I pass by the condo beside the building of my office. It’s so pleasant in the eyes.
  5. Graham balls(which will you see below); I missed this!image
  6. Kuya Traffic enforcer for helping me cross the street this morning because there are a lot of careless drivers.
  7. Good music playlist on my phone.
  8. Yummy breakfast.
  9. 1-hour happy lunch with my office mate who is dearly close to my heart (hi mommy Tashy!)
  10. Survived this tiring day! Phew!!!
  11. For having an awesome patience with people today.
  12. Kuya Shuttle driver who saved my favorite spot in front of the van.
  13. Arrived at home, safe.
  14. Sumptuous dinner made by my aunt thanks, Memet!
  15. Great WIFI connection at home (wow minsan lang maging mabilis ‘to okay)
  16. Supportive friends
  17. Being able to share this to you and express what I feel.
  18. You! Because you’re taking the time to read this.
  19. Despite a bit of misunderstanding at times, an intact family.
The lovely flowers I mentioned above 🙂

These are the few the things that I am thankful for today. I realized that even if you feel tired after a long day, counting all your blessings will make you feel happy. When I say “blessings” I don’t include material things, I count experiences, memories, and generosity.


See you soon,

  2. Thanks for the “like” and the “follow”! I’m enjoying poking around your blog. Love your thankful list here. This is something I try to do everyday…write down at least one of the many gifts from God in my life, big or little! I love the quote from Ann Voskamp that says, “Being joyful isn’t what makes you grateful. Being grateful is what makes you joyful.” 🙂

  3. Gem? What am I thankful for right now? Thankful for your visit. I like your post. A little note to add? Your blessings can be disguised in affliction. For it is in affliction that your spirit gains the power of love to survive against glee or gloom.
    In addition? Among the many things that I am thankful for with each breath that I take? I am thankful for you taking your time to write a comment on the writings. Welcome to come back for sure! 🙂
