Appreciate Life: Ten Things to be Thankful for Today

First and foremost, Happy Easter to my fellow humans who celebrate and acknowledge this day! I know that if I were at my mom's, we'd be celebrating today with the family, dying eggs, and partaking in an Easter egg scavenger hunt! I can honestly say that my mom has always made holidays fun & enjoyable. If you don't celebrate Easter for the religious aspects of it, that's okay, too! I'm sure you'll find some take aways from this #lovenotes anyway.


It's still so easy to view life pessimistically right now. I can't even blame you--I find myself questioning how can we see good in any of this right now? It feels like the world is falling apart. Just as easily as I find pessimistic views on everyday life, I find optimistic ones to balance them out. What I appreciate most about the Easter season is the significance behind it. If we take out the religious aspect for a second, it boils down to us bettering ourselves as humans. We give up or acquire a new skill during the time of #Lent to better us in longevity. I'm not sure about y'all, but I am always looking for ways to better myself! This is something we can do regardless of the day and season.


Today, we're appreciating life and appreciating the sacrifices that have been made and continue to be made for the betterment of us all. Here are my Top 10 Things I'm thankful for today.
