Today, I’m thankful for life! Even though it’s sometimes smooth, sometimes rough, sometimes makes you laugh, sometimes makes you sad and depressed, but that’s how the meaning of life works. Just like everything has two sides, in everyone’s life there’s darkness and sunshine, but whatever life gives us is an experience. It can be a great chance to learn from the experience, then that’s going to become a priceless wealth for us.

There are many things in life that I am thankful for. I am thankful for all the wonderful things in life and for all the things that I have. Being born here on Earth and having to live wonderful years, I am so thankful for all of it. Half of the things in my life were not so good, and I was not very grateful for it, but other than that, everything has been good. I'm sure that many people have several different things that they are thankful for, and they have different reasons why they are thankful.

I am grateful that I am alive and breathing. I think of all my friends who have passed away— and how they no longer have the joy to experience what I am experiencing. Whenever my life feels shitty— I just remember how much of a joy it is to be alive. There are a ton of things I could complain about in life. There are so many negatives. But why focus on the negatives in life? Life is short. No matter how happy or “successful” someone may seem— everyone has skeletons in their closets, suffer, and have problems.

Overall I am extremely appreciative of the greatest secret around us. What is the greatest secret to you? Is it the way that we believe and how we are persistent? Is it how any challenge or fear can be overcome and confronted if we are brave and do what we know is right? Maybe it is the way that one drip of water can ripple and show how Karma is true and all of our actions are consequences. It could be the way that the tree of life tells what we were and what we will become because each leaf represents each one of us differently. Or is it the way that wonder separates the stars and how the window of opportunity with the stars that shine like sequins on a black velvet sky will open to everyone who wishes to reach for, follow, and catch whatever dreams that he or she has forever been wishing for? To me, the greatest secret is everything. That is why I am grateful for everything and everyone that life has made me cross paths with.
