Sometimes in life, it's hard to be thankful.
It's really easy to look at all the things in your life you wish you could change. Life is sometimes complicated, isn't it? Sometimes things don't work out the way you planned or dreamed or hoped. Sometimes, life hands you lemons.
This weekend is Canadian Thanksgiving. This year, I am thankful for a whole lot. Of course, those who are dear to me are at the top of my list. But I'm also going to be thankful for my mistakes. My screw-ups, challenges, and dumb moves. There are plenty of them to be thankful for, after all.
Those mistakes have brought our family to the place it is today. They've placed us on the path to creating the life we really want to live and made us into the people we are today. Maybe it hasn't been perfect but I certainly wouldn't trade the people I share my life with for anything.
I am so thankful to have them.
Count your blessings and have the happiest of Thanksgivings!
