4 Of The Most Important Blessings Life Gives You
Start writing a post

It's the holiday season, and with that it's time to release all that we are blessed with. Don't get me wrong however, this should be an all around year thing, but in most cases this time of year is when it tends to happen the most. So, I decided to jump on the social media bandwagon and do the same thing. Personally, I prefer to state my blessings once a day, and in person, not over social media, but maybe by reading this article, people will truly realize what they should be thankful for.

Without further ado, here are many of the blessings, or things that I am thankful for in my life.

First off, I am thankful for this life that I have. I was blessed with this life and I will never take it for granted. And neither should you. The simplest of things are the biggest of blessings, such as life, life is not simple by any means, but it's a simple term, and it's a huge blessing. We could not be here right now. We could not be living comfortably or not, getting to experience the things that we get to experience, being with our friends and families, smiling, etc. would not happen if we were not living.

I am thankful and blessed to have a healthy body, mind, and soul. I was blessed with eyes to perceive the world differently than the person sitting next to you. I was blessed with ears to hear the world's celebrations throughout the years. I was blessed with a mouth to speak my words and change the world. I was blessed with legs and feet to walk, run, and dance through life. Some people have a major disease and are stuck in hospitals for a very long time. It's time you thank your body for being healthy and keeping you alive.

I am blessed with the ability to go to college and make my dreams come true. Many people do not get the chance to go to college and get a degree, but I have the chance to, and I will always be grateful for that. Even though I am not having it handed to me, and I have to work very hard to stay at college, it's teaching me a lot of life lessons that I would not be able to have by not going to college. I will be able to work in my dream field after I get my degree and I cannot be more thankful for that.

I am thankful for having a roof over my head, having clothes on my back, and having food and drink in my stomach. As simple as that sounds, many people overlook the simplest of things that life brings. There are families in the world that don't have a home, don't have a bed, barely have clothes, and are starving. So with that you need to realize how privileged we(as humans who have these things) are have all of these things.

These are just some of the things that have blessed me and have made me more grateful and thankful in life. I hope you take time to write down at least three things you are thankful at the end of each day like I do. Have a great holiday.

Freshly popped buttered popcorn in your lap and a glass full of crisp Coca-Cola is at your side. All the lights are turned off and you are tucked into a cozy blanket. You have the whole day off and no responsibilities besides refilling your popcorn bucket. Now all you have to do is decide on what movie to watch, but you know one movie will not fulfill your need of relaxing all day. A movie marathon is the only answer to your problem.

What was usually buried at the bottom of my purse has now become a pocket essential — and I know I'm not alone in that.

I have been working at Dunkin' Donuts for over two years, and during this time, I have progressed from regular crew member to crew coach, and finally, to shift leader. Among my great skills involving the job is my ability to deal with stressful situations, including awful customers. My boss has continuously pointed out the fact that I am able to handle these people with grace and kindness. She herself often finds that she gets snippy with rude customers, but somehow I am able to keep a straight face through these tough times.

Let's be real here — sometimes essential oils and acknowledging all five senses (touch, see, hear, smell, taste) just don't cut it when you need to cope. It's those days when you have so much rage that you don't even know what to do with yourself, or those days when you physically cannot stop crying because of the most suffocating sadness, or all those other days when you are craving healthy coping mechanisms that actually work.

But before I let you in, we need to continue being real. I hope you are comforted with the knowledge that before I uncovered (or, even wanted to uncover) healthy mechanisms, I also went through my drought of horrible coping mechanisms. I have, and sometimes continue, to fall short of genuinely trying to help myself. It takes a lot of courage, and energy, to genuinely try and help yourself.
