I’m not American, so making a ‘Thanksgiving based‘ post today may get some heads scratching…
But I was looking at all the drama going on in the world. In the crazy world of politics. As well as the constant social media beef and arguments that seem to take so much of our attention these days…I thought it would be a good time to write down some things that I’m thankful for…
Hey, I could rant about how it’s not fair! And complain about the ills of humanity. And spend my time worrying about the weather…But instead, I’m going to take an inventory of things I’m thankful for.
I’m thankful for my Lord and Savior.
I have rarely if ever mentioned my faith on STEEM, simply because I feel there is a time and place for everything. If you wanna know what I believe, ask away but I will never force my beliefs on others. But on this day of thankfulness, and everyday for that matter, I’m grateful and thankful for my life!
Thankful for my family.
I’m beyond blessed and so grateful for them. My wife Theda, my sons Isaiah (on the left) and Matthew (on the right)…Plus with ‘a bun in the oven’ due next year…Family to me is everything! They are my foundation. And why I work so hard everyday. Without them, I have nothing!
I’m extremely thankful for my STEEM family as well.
The awesome people I met at Steemfest and throughout the adventures I’ve had here since I joined. You truly are the best people on the blockchain 🙂
Thank you so much for adding to my journey! With your amazing comments, engagement and support….You have made this such an adventure!
I’m thankful for everyone in SteemSavvy!
You have put a huge amount of trust on me and I look forward to serving you for the years to come. From everyone in the Discord community to the members working hard to get through the training….Thank you for believing in STEEM and bringing STEEM to the masses.
I’m thankful for the challenges!
This year has been bitter sweet for me. From massive life changes to challenges I never thought I could face, to becoming obsessed with STEEM and the opportunities here. I’ve had some huge highs and big time lows in 2018.
I accept it all though and welcome them!
I’m so thankful that each of these challenge have made me dig deep and find out what I’m made of. It’s been a rough 2018 but I’m so hopeful for the future and my STEEM journey has helped me through so much. I can’t wait for 2019 😉
I’m thankful for opportunity!
Being an entrepreneur your life can go through cycles. It’s a roller coaster for sure. But I wouldn’t change it for the world because every single day…I wake up and am greeted with OPPORTUNITY! I have the ability to create my own future through dedication and hard work. And thank is something each of us should be thankful for.
We create our future! We decide what we are going to do with the 1440 minutes we are granted today!
And oh yeah, I’m super thankful to Steemit Inc for this HUGE increase in my estimated account value today….Mighty nice of them huh, Lambos for everyone 😉
In all honesty though….
I’m thankful for so much!
I could choose to focus on the negatives because my goodness, look at the world and you’ll find them…But when we take inventory of everything we have in front of us and around us, being thankful and grateful becomes natural.
THANK YOU for reading my blog and I hope you have an amazing day!
One thought to “Thankful!”
As always, Jon, you hit the nail on the head… we can be “oh poor me” or we can be thankful for what we have… or don’t have… As bad as we may think things are, it can always be worse… looking for the positives gives us the strength to move forward…
