Thankfulness vs Stressfulness
Enter [what’s been on my mind]
Many of the things that I’m thankful for also tend to stress me out.
Blink [see a new perspective]
As an avid list maker, I recently made two lists.
The first list: ten things that stress me out.
The second list: ten things that I am thankful for.
In comparing the two lists, I noticed crossover between them. Because while family and friends stress me out, they are also the source of my deepest gratitude. And yes, finances can definitely be stressful. But at the end of the day, I am so thankful for the roof over my head and the resources I have access to.

This Thanksgiving, keep your stresses in check. Chances are they might also be what you’re thankful for.

“I am so thankful I have a daughter. She is the greatest gift God has ever given me. But having a daughter is also stressful because I have to make sure she is taken care of, and I am responsible for her growing up to have strong values and work ethic. Plus, make sure that she is good to others and is a contributing member to our society.”
