Thanksgiving : Overall Gratitude

Thursday, November 24, 2011  at 8:31 PM

I stumbled upon this old post of mine just now, which has a list of what I wanted to have that year. It has been more than a year now, and seeing this post made me smile, because I can't believe I managed to have not only one, but both of these cameras (they were both gifts) without me really remembering I had such a wishlist. I forgot I even made that post! (By the way, I am now giving away the other camera, because I only need one... I hope I granted someone else's wish!)

However, I am not here to talk about material things. This is just an interesting example of us not knowing that we have already received what we have actually wished for before (subconsciously or not), without us really remembering we did make that wish.

It's THANKSGIVING DAY today, and I have so many blessings to thank God for! Looking back, some of the simple things or events which I may have not noticed before, turned out to be part of a huge blessing. We take certain things, situations, and people for granted, yet they are placed there because they are the keys to the ultimate gift. We also make wishes, and it's either we have already received them and did not notice them, or we may not have received them, but we have received something better. 

I own a GRATITUDE journal, where I place all of the blessings I want to receive, and also write what I have received so far. I opened it recently, and I am very overwhelmed that I have received so many blessings.

People might say, "I envy you. You have so many blessings."

All I can say back is, "Well, look at what you have and where you are right now. You've been blessed with many things as well! You got your family, friends, opportunities, and even you, yourself, are a blessing to all of us." (Yesss lalem.)

Everyone has so many things to thank for! And not everyone has what others have, because we have our own aspirations, values, philosophy, beliefs, personalities, goals, etc. Comparing what we do not have to what others have would do us no good, because we're meant to have what we have and we will have according to our own desires and dreams.

So I would like to thank God, and everyone who has touched my life.

 Hey, I'm thankful I met YOU.

Happy Thanksgiving Day! :)

First of all, congrats sa bagong layout. Ilang dekada na ba ako nawala? LOL

Secondly, ikaw na ang maraming thankful for something. Ikaw na ang nagte-thanksgiving, pengeng turkey. Lasang manok din ba iyan? :D

Seriously, I am reminded to be thankful for what I have. Like yourself I also make lista all the blessings I received at wala akong masulat. Juk!

My heart is really thankful that I have good health, I have friends, family and I get to enjoy my life eventhough I don't have all the bested material things in the world. Kapag pala thankful ka in every small details na pwede mong ma appreciate nag ma-magnify yun sa personality like You.
