When I heard this prompt, I knew how easy it would be choose many things to be grateful for. Yet, I was thinking about a post from another Get Messy Girl, where she writes about being happy or sad. What she is really happy about or really sad about. So for this month’s prompt I took the more philosophical approach.
I have been thinking over that and asking myself questions: What am I thankful for? What am I truly happy about? Or sad about? Where does happiness come from? What is better happiness or being content? That is when I realize one sentence could sum up all of that. If you can’t be happy about the basics of survival (food, water, shelter—no matter the condition), then nothing will make you happy because you don’t appreciate the basics. Everything else in life beside food, shelter and water is extra. You don’t need the extra to get by, really—they just add to life. Those have been my thoughts for the past month and I plan on sharing a full post on all these thoughts next week.
P.S. It's my 10th week! Yay. =]
