Thankful Thursdays. 🙏

Most days I wake up early, bubbly, and full of energy....but there are those rare days, where I just want to stay in bed and curl up in a fetal position. Ignore the wrld.
[hibernation kinda day with my dinosaur themed bed sheets]
Today was one of those mornings. I was thinking about my parents (who both passed late 2019), COVID turning the world upside-down, my 10 years at a company that's now non-existent, and a trail of shittery one after another. Like dang, 2020 does suck. 🥺
Many of you message me and share the same sentiment. All of us coming from different countries with our own personal battles this year. Some in worst conditions due to their country and the lack of government assistance. Don't give up.
When I feel crappy, I stick my ten fingers up and count my blessings. A finger down for every blessing counted.
- I woke up in a soft, warm bed and my squishy pillows.
- I walked to a fridge full of food with options to cook/eat whatever my tummy desires.
- My water runs clear and clean.
- I have a phone and good wifi to write this post.
- My two friends' birthday today and I can afford to buy them gifts they deserve.
- My big brother is smiling today despite dealing with severe PTSD.
- I can see the blue skies after weeks of hazardous smokey-air.
- Despite dreading schoolwork, I am able to get a good education and continue to learn.
- I get hugs and doggy kisses every morning from my fur-babies.
- I'm alive and healthy.
If you can even get to one fist, you are more blessed compared to many out there. Remember that.
Smile. Appreciate. Woooosahhhh.

This is... amazing
@Rei_90 i just made chocolate chip cookies and thought of you. they did not look as appealing as yours but with chocolate it is hard to go wrong. i made them in the microwave at work. #nobake
@Rei_90 PLZ CHECK MY DM
@Vick953 thank you
@andrewcrules so very true. we all have our own challenges so support and encouragement is crucial during these times.
you stay strong too!
@Khelayni really? well i'm happy you took the time to even read it. welcome sweety.
hope your day ended well. much love.
I think about these things when I watch yt videos of poverty-stricken nations or warzones. The condition of people there, esp kids is heartbreaking.
Thank you for writing this post as it reminds all of us to be grateful for what we have! People need to be less greedy and more empathetic & thankful.
@chewie aww that is so cute you thought about me with choco chips cookies. hehe!
as long as it is edible, i am down to eat anything. share please.
@sup you are welcome and thank you for reading my post.
yes. it's very sad. i been to countries with limited resources, economic crisis, and corrupted government....so that gave me a reality slap after being in the U.S so sheltered. my perspective on life and the world changed completely.
if people can't travel, i wish they would watch yt (as you do) and see that people are suffering outside their bubble. it will really help people be kinder, more respectful, and grateful.. right?
anyways, sorry to rant. good day and happy saturday!
