Thankful- Everyday Occurrences to be Thankful for

The hustle and bustle of everyday life can really make one resentful, angry, or simply overwhelmed.  This time of year we are looking for reasons to be thankful.  Why are we just finding those reasons for the holidays?  Should we not be thankful for every moment of everyday?  I think we should. 
There are everyday occurrences that should bring forth feelings of thankfulness.  Today for example, you woke up to spend another day with your loved ones.  I am thankful daily for this opportunity to ensure my family knows how important they are to me.

I have been struggling financially with paying my student loans, my truck payment, and all of my personal bills.  I didn't know what to do except continue to struggle and pray that everything would turn out okay.  The stress this was bringing me was terrible.  I filled out an income based loan repayment and received the news yesterday that it was accepted and instead of 3 paychecks a month going toward repayment only part of  1 will.  Instant stress reducer.  I am thankful that I realized that I needed help and that I was the only one that was standing in the way.  I found a path and I chose it and the outcome is something to be thankful for. 

I am thankful to be here for friends and family and other people that cross my path.  There are things we all struggle with.  It makes us human.  Be thankful for your struggles because they make you stronger.  Be thankful for friends that give advice and support you.  
Remember- Your expectations on where you need to be in life are your expectations it may not be the expected plan that is designed for you.
