Oh wait, did I say all we are thankful for? Yes, I did! Hmm, maybe I should rephrase that. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, the day we remember a lot of nice things we are thankful for, and eat foodz galore.
Why don't we remember all we are thankful for, I wonder? I wish I knew. Perhaps it's that we have so much, and lose sight of the fact that it's not us who got us to that point. Maybe that's it, maybe it's not. Whatever the case, I believe we fail to remember all we are thankful for, even on this day where we remember much more than on other days of the year.
Today, I watched a video that Lauren from The Thinking Closet put in a subscriber email, and I can't help but share it with all of you peoples! Lauren said in her email that she laughed out loud. I was not expecting to laugh out loud myself, but guess what. I did laugh out loud!
For realz, this video just makes you want to laugh. It's so funny, and at the same time, gives you a new perspective on how and why you can and should be thankful. It makes you think outside the box. I love the part where he says sadness is good because it reminds you of what you care about! Ha! Amen, brothah!
So now, my itty bitty task for you, my dear reader, is to watch this wonderful video, and then tell me about something you are thankful for, other than, friends... family... food. Because let's face it, even though those things are wonderful, and yes, you ought to be thankful for them, they are just so stereotypical, and well, boring. I want you to tell me something think-outside-the-boxish that you are thankful for (feel free to comment on the actual YouTube video also. I don't want to take any comments away from him.). I hope this video will open your eyes to things you didn't even realize you were thankful for!
This is something else I am very thankful for. :)
So tell me, me what think-outside-the-boxish sort of thing are YOU thankful for?
