The little things

Thanksgiving: a holiday of thankfulness

What is there to be thankful for, though?

Work is busy and stressful

Life is difficult

And by the day, 

the world seems to only get worse


When counting your losses

Instead, count your blessings

Surprise yourself

With how many you’ll find


Count the breath in your lungs,

The steps that you take,

The days that you live

And the friends that you meet


Today is fleeting, 

Tomorrow is uncertain

Sometimes we can only appreciate

What’s been taken away

Appreciate where you are,

And find joy in the little things
