Most of the time on Thankful Thursday’s I write about the things I have. Things like time, a great family, or even a microwave.
Those things are great and I’ll continue to be thankful for them, but today I would like to take a different approach.
Too often I worry about the things I don’t have. Things like a million dollars, a fancy car, or a million dollars (did I mention that one already?).
But when I stopped to think about it, I realized I am actually very lucky for the many things I don’t have. I may not have it all, but it turns out that isn’t such a bad thing.
Here is a list of things I am thankful I don’t have.
I am thankful I don’t have…
- to worry about where my next meal will come from
- a serious illness
- to live paycheck to paycheck
- excessive debt
- a dangerous neighborhood
- to get up at 3am
- to take a cold shower when I do get up
- dial up internet
Those are just a few of the things that I am grateful I don’t have. I bet if you think about it long enough you can make a pretty good list of your own.
