10 Seconds of Thanks

The goal of this post is for me to be able to come back and look at what I’m thankful for. To have a visible reminder of the good in my life, rather than just trying to come up with it on the spot. So, without further ado, let’s begin!

  1. I’m thankful for my supportive parents and my caring siblings. I feel lucky to say I have a good relationship with them all.
  2. I’m thankful for the lifelong friends I’ve made along the way.
  3. For my dogs and cat, obviously. They provide me comfort in the simplest ways.
  4. I’m thankful for the random strangers that smile at me when I make eye contact. It really brightens up a gloomy day.
  5. For all the opportunities I’ve been presented with and the people who’ve pushed me in the right direction.
  6. I’m thankful I’ve made as much growth as I’ve had. Teen Maddie wouldn’t even recognize adult Maddie.
  7. Finally, I’m thankful for the people who do good just because. Strangers that help with flat tires, friends that provide support, siblings that will keep secrets, etc.

That was a bit longer than 10 seconds, but I was on a roll and there is no such thing as being too thankful.

Let’s move on to what was supposed to be the 10 second drawing, but really ending up being around 2 minutes.

It’s sideways, but you get the idea.

Needless to say, my high school art teacher would be proud. It looks just like me.
