50 things to be grateful for


With Thanksgiving just a day a way and the Christmas season right around the corner, we think it’s important that we start spending more time with gratitude…but not your typical gratitude. The kind of gratitude that isn’t seasonal or time-based. The kind we can start to foster not just for the rest of 2018 but for the rest of our lives.

On the most recent “What We Said” podcast by Jaci Smith and Chelsey Curtis, you can catch a glimpse of the not-so-usual things they are grateful for. If you’re interested in the entire episode, listen through. But if you are just interested in the gratitude section, go ahead and skip to the end. Jaci and Chelsey talk about being thankful for things (aside from the obvious family and friends) like the internet, bad experiences that made them stronger, clean water to drink, and even for each other.

This episode sparks a unique way to think about gratitude. So here’s a few things you can be grateful for when you’re feeling a little less than blessed.


  • Family
  • Friends
  • Spouse/Boyfriend or Girlfriend
  • Water and food
  • Home
  • Money
  • Air conditioning and heat
  • Your couch
  • A pet
  • TV and internet
  • A bed + the ability to sleep in that bed
  • Use of all your extremities
  • Holidays
