Lately, I find myself complaining quite frequently. Whether it is about people or the clothes I am wearing, I find something to dislike about the situations I put myself in. But really, I am thankful for everything that this world has given me.
I am grateful for water. The water that cleans my soul of the dirt from my day. The water that keeps my skin glowing and my body fueled.
I am blessed for the music that you have gifted me. The music that brings my spirits up and gives me new ideas. The music that bonds my family together as we sit in the living room and discuss.
I am thankful to have travelled across the nation.
I am grateful for the friends that support me through thick and thin. Who fill me with laughter and joy.
I am thankful for my teachers who are guiding me through my adolescence, making sure I don’t screw up.
I am blessed to have been raised in California with the sandy beaches and the warm weather.
I am thankful for the food that represents my culture like the salty Filipino food that my grandmother would make me.
I am blessed for my rights in this nation as I am able to speak my mind and express my feelings whenever.
I express my gratitude to the land, the elements, and the people that surround me.
Thank you world.
