10 Things to Be Thankful for This Holiday Season

With the world such a contentious place these days, it is often difficult to stay upbeat and see the positive aspects of life. As the Thanksgiving Day holiday approaches, many of us are feeling less than thankful, but it is worth taking a step back to look at the big picture.
Even if you think things are going terribly and the world is headed off a cliff, there are still things to be thankful for in your life. Here are 10 things to be thankful for this holiday season. 

Your family - They may drive you crazy at times and even crazier during the holidays, but there is nothing quite as comfortable as being surrounded by your family members. 

Your friends - Having a reliable circle of friends is not something everyone can count on. If you have friends you can rely on this holiday season; you are truly blessed. 

Your faith - Whether it is traditional religious faith, a non-denominational feeling of spirituality or just a vague sense that someone is watching out for us, the presence of faith in your life is definitely something to feel thankful for. 

Your good health - If you have your health, you have everything. Being in reasonably good health is definitely something to feel thankful for this holiday season. 

The beauty of nature - Even if it is cold outside and the roads are covered with snow, there is beauty in nature. The holiday season is a particularly spectacular time of year and a great time to enjoy the wonders of nature. 

Your education - Those sunny days spent inside a stuffy classroom were not wasted. They laid the groundwork for your future success. Take a minute this holiday season to thank the teachers who helped make you who you are. 

Your challenges - It is our challenges that make us stronger, so give thanks for the struggles in your life. 

The beauty of music - Whether you are a fan of hip-hop, folk, jazz, classic rock or heavy metal, music is a great source of joy. So put on your favorite tunes and be thankful for the presence of music in your life. 

Modern conveniences - In holidays past, you would have been washing the dishes at the local stream and cleaning your clothes by beating them with a rock. Be thankful for modern conveniences, even if all those gadgets drive you nuts sometimes. 

Your ability to reason - The ability to reason allows you to put everything in perspective, and more often than not it shows you that things are not as bad as you think. Be grateful that you have the ability to reason and think things through. 
It is not always easy to be thankful, but if you take the time, you will find plenty of things to be thankful for this holiday season. The Thanksgiving Day holiday is a time for counting your blessings, and a time to give thanks for all the great things in your life. You can make this special holiday even more memorable by taking a step back and looking at all the wonderful things life has already given you.
