23 Things I'm Thankful for this Thanksgiving
Thought Catalog

This Thanksgiving I have so much to be thankful for. I have been blessed beyond belief this past year. I want to recognize the people and things I am so grateful for. During the year I may not acknowledge how privileged I actually am. However, I take nothing for granted.

1. My parents

I love you unconditionally. Thank you for all that you've done

2. My younger sister

No one knows how to make me laugh quite like you do

3. My grandparents

4. My extended family

5. My friends that became family

You know who you are

6. My hometown friends

Thank you for making this small town such a great place to live

7. My college friends

Thank you for some of the best days of my life. You will always be with me.

8. The roof over my head

9. The instructors at my university

10. My education

I was lucky enough to work towards a degree in something I love

11. The nights I laughed so hard I cried

I wish I could relive them all over again

12. My job

13. My coworkers

Thank you for everything

14. My new neighbors

15. My health

16. My families health

Above all else, I am beyond grateful for a healthy family.

17. My happiness

18. My family's happiness

19. Another day of being alive

Today will be a good day because I woke up and I was breathing

20. My faith

21. The experiences that shaped me during 2016

22. That I woke up this morning and I was able to see another day

23. Random acts of kindness

I'm also thankful for the smaller things in life. My coffee, the sun shining, my favorite song coming on in the car and so much more. This holiday season reminds those you love that you are grateful for them. I hope each of you finds at least one thing you are thankful for this holiday season.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.
