Being Thankful

I stumbled upon this article the other day, and have already looked through the pictures three times. I feel as though sometimes I become caught up in life, and need to ground myself. I need to remember what is truly important and how I should be thankful for everything I’m lucky enough to have.

Seeing other people in the photos in this article makes me so sad. It’s hard to see the many struggles that people face every day. It’s sad how so many of us are unaware of the daily struggles that millions of people around the world go through. It makes me want to help those in need, and make a difference, even if it is only small. I believe that every small contribution helps.

After looking through these photos, I also decided that throughout the month of November I will write down something that I am thankful for every day. This is somewhat because of Thanksgiving, and somewhat just wanting to be more thankful. Sometimes when things don’t seem to be going my way, I need to step back and be grateful for everything I am blessed with. My problems are very insignificant compared to the struggles that many people face around the world.
