30 Things To Be Thankful For

PEKIN, Ill., – The holiday season is coming up quick! Halloween has come and went, Thanksgiving is a few weeks away, and Christmas is just around the corner. Before you get too invested in planning family events and shopping for gifts, take a second to think about the things you take for granted everyday. Check out our list of 30 things to be thankful for.

30 Things To Be Thankful For

1. Good health - if you've got it, don't take it for granted. Not everyone does.
2. Sunshine - or clouds, or rain, whatever makes you happy! Weather is cool.
3. Hugs - hugs are just the best.
4. Books - or movies, or tv shows, entertainment for your brain in general.
5. Money in the bank - even if it's just $1, that's more than many people have.
6. Pets, or animals in general - affection from furry friends is one of life's greatest gifts!
7. Food to eat - knowing where your next meal is going to come from is a huge blessing.
8. A job - whether you hate it or love it, money to pay the bills is something to be grateful for.
9. Clothes to wear - trendy or not, at least they're clean and at least they fit.
10. Water - it's easy to forget that clean water is inaccessible to many.
11. Music - listening to it, making it, whatever you're in to! Music is good for the soul.
12. Sports teams - we need someone to cheer on or hate on, right?
13. Warmth - electricity and the ability to take warm showers are something we take for granted.
14. Laughter - the best medicine!
15. Your sanity - fleeting or not.
16. Service workers - waiters, bus drivers, postal service workers, all people we should thank regularly.
17. The ability to communicate - whether it's a phone call, an email, or snail mail, not everyone is capable of communicating with loved ones regularly.
18. Family - crazy or not, they've got your back.
19. Your freedom - being allowed to do what makes you happy isn't something that's possible for everyone.
20. Friends - who else are you going to complain to and do dumb things with?
21. A roof over your head - big or small, a place to call home is something to be thankful for.
22. Comfortable shoes - and shoes that fit!
23. Transportation - car, bus, train, or plane, getting where you need to go is a luxury for some.
24. Being appreciated - at work, or at home, knowing you're appreciated is always nice.
25. Partners - boyfriend, girlfriend, spouse, or best friend, having someone to lean on is something to be thankful for.
26. Chocolate - or your favorite sugary treat.
27. Kind neighbors - no matter how small of a role they play in your life, they could always be more annoying!
28. Coffee - just coffee. Caffeine in general.
29. Challenges - to remind you what it's like to overcome them.
30. Yourself! - There is no other you, and that's something to celebrate.
