words / being thankful

Another monday is here! I wish the weekend lasted longer because it was so nice to spend time with friends and family. I hope you all had a blessed thanksgiving surrounded by your loved ones.

Last week, I mentioned that I was going to move on thanksgiving, but there was a change in plans and the move was postponed to later this week! The house is pretty empty now, and everything is all packed up! While packing all of my things, I realized how much stuff I had! Most of which I don't even need... The quote I illustrated above really struck a chord with me, and made me realize how spoiled I have become, and i'm not proud of that. I'm not sure why I keep wanting things, when I already have everything I need right at my fingertips.

It is humbling to know that there will always be someone out there that is having a worse day than you, and that there is someone making the best out of what little they have, and finding true happiness. This makes me feel so thankful and blessed, and allows me to appreciate all the little things in life.

This week i'll be having an awesome giveaway from Pear Tree Greetings, just in time for Christmas! You don't want to miss it, so be sure to stop by the blog! Have a great day everyone! — Minna
