Thankfulness (Praise even when you don’t feel like it)

So if I’m honest, I’m not the most thankful person on this planet. In fact as a 24 year old, I find myself in a great place to live with awesome roommate dudes, have a good paying job, have really awesome friends, and family that love me and support me. I have shelter, clothing, money, a car, an iPhone. 


I find myself complaining way more than I should just about stupid stuff, and it could be about how my job is “too hard.” Or I may complain about what someone said to me and what I should’ve said to them. Anybody else know what I’m talking about?? Y’all better unless y’all are perfect.

Let’s be honest for a minute, being thankful can be hard, and I think because we get so used to things, we take things for granted. We take a lot of things for granted, such as people, little moments (day to day moments), we just take life for granted. Do we ever just stop ,and just take a moment or just have a moment to be still ,and just be thankful. 

Being thankful is hard, but it’s possible, every morning when I wake up, I just say: 

“Father in Jesus name, thank you for waking me up this morning, thank you for Your grace and your mercy.” 

Obviously I’m a Christian so it would make sense for me to say something like that. When you wake up, what are you thankful for? What are you most thankful for? 

I know for me most mornings are hard to get out of bed, and go to work. Mornings are challenging, but its so worth it. 

All that to say that even when its hard to get out of bed during the week to go to work or you find your week being difficult to be thankful. 

Be thankful even when its the hardest to be thankful, or praise even when you don’t feel like it. 

Stay awesome everyone! Love y’all
