On a day like today, all I want to do it cuddle up, drink hot chocolate, and watch movies all day. Unfortunately, the weekend is over, and it is back to the real world.

It is always hard getting up on Monday morning, and I of all people complain about it..but what we all need to realize is that we are all lucky to have another day worth living.

Here is a list of ten things we should all be thankful for, even on the worst of days.

1. It is such a wonderful blessing to wake up another day, and take that first breath of fresh air. To look outside and see life everywhere is a true reward and we always seem to forget that.

2. We always seem to “hate our ex’s” but in reality, they have only made us the people we are today. Instead of bashing them and regretting the life you had with them, thank them for helping you grow and better understand who you would like to be with in the future.

3. Those annoying parents that you always seem to complain about? Those people brought you into this world, and understandably, at times they might be rough around the edges, but they love you. Just remember, it could be worse. I always find myself making snarky comments to my parents, and feeling awful about it later. Life is too short to hurt the people that you love, so never take them for granted.

4. The mistakes you cannot seem to get past. Certain mistakes that you have made in the past might have brought out certain characteristics that you might dislike or like about yourself. Those mistakes have molded you into the person that you are, regardless of how much you hate the sound of that. Mistakes have to happen or else you would never grow up or mature.

5. The silly fights that always get under your skin. As annoying as it may be, a little fighting every once in a while shows that you do have feelings, and that you do care. If nobody ever fought, we would live in a world of lies. People need to disagree. People need to have differences. Because from those disagreements and differences comes resolution, and resolution rocks!

Life is far better than I, and many others, deserve. Keeping track of what I am thankful for helps me put a lot of things into perspective. Hopefully from this, you too, can reminisce on what and who you are thankful for.

Recently I have started to miss my family very much. Being at school can be stressful, especially senior year, so I always find myself thinking about my family. I know that if I were home they would be able to help me, but the distance makes it hard.

I have realized that being away from them months at a time has made me realize how important they are for me. When I was home all the time I found that I took my family for granted.

So as I sit her writing this, I have come to the conclusion that my family, by far, is what I am most thankful for. They are always there for me, no matter what. Even when they do not agree with me, they have always proven to back me up 100%. I know that there have been times where I have not made the best decisions, but I always will know that my family will be there to have my back.

This month I would like to know what you are most thankful for. You can post it to the BareandMe Facebook page or you can post it in a comment. I know that I am always writing on here, so at times I get bored talking about myself. I would love to know what you guys think. Who makes you happiest? What are the things that you appreciate? Just a few sentences as to why this person has impacted you.

Let me know! Would love to hear.
