2020 has definitely been something else. So many events happened that we never would've imagined happening. This year has been tough, unpredictable, worrisome, and honestly, it's been cruel.
We have experienced wildfires, protests, murder hornets, a presidential election, and of course, a worldwide pandemic.
In March, our lives got flipped upside down. We all went in thinking the lockdown would last a few weeks, maybe a month or two, but who would've thought we would still have restrictions going in November. Some states are even in lockdown again. Life just isn't normal, and who knows when things will be "normal" again.
It can be tough to find things to be thankful for with such a crazy, negative year, but there are! A lot of it can come from changing perspectives too. Instead of thinking, "Well, we're stuck in the house again", you could start to think of it as, "I have a roof over my head where I'm warm and I'm safe."
Here are some of the things we are thankful for:
Being of good health
Clean water to drink
Cute pictures of animals
Books to read
A comfy bed to sleep in
Delicious food to eat
Being able to go on walks and breathe in the fresh air
Technology that allows us to stay connected with others
Having the opportunity of taking a step back and looking at life.
YOU! Our listeners!
Please remember that no matter what is going on in life, there is always something to be thankful for! With so much negativity all around us, look for all the small positives.
