I am thankful for so many things. I’m not going to list them.

Some things I’m not quite thankful for, but maybe someday I’ll be thankful for the lessons they’ll teach me. Not yet though.

I don’t need to say publicly how thankful I am, for which things I am thankful, or adhere to some schedule to prove I’m thankful enough. I don’t have to be constantly thankful; I can say that sometimes some things suck. That doesn’t negate thankfulness for other things.

In a season where we’re bombarded with messages to count our blessings and insinuations that we aren’t grateful enough if we aren’t gushing our thanks and praise upon the universe, I say to just be you. You’re thankful for what you want to be thankful for. You don’t have to be thankful for everything or all the time and I respect that.

No one has to wear their gratitude like a sandwich board and parade it around for the world’s approval.

Happy Thanksgiving.

This is yeah write’s nomo Day 26.
