They call it Thanksgiving because it’s the one day you are supposed to be thankful. One day isn’t enough though.
If you woke up this morning, you’re winning and you should be thankful. I am thankful for every day because every day that you are alive is a precious gift.
What am I thankful for? I am thankful for you.
Follow me on instagram – I provide daily picture proof that I am thankful for each and every day.
Reader Comment of the Day:

“I gravitate to B&D in waves. I come, I read, I let it germinate while I disappear, and then come back again when I feel I’m in need of an ass-kicking.
I’m back now because of NWR. Plain and simple, and I will be back more often.
Now, for the record, I’ve been here since about 2011-2012. Some site linked to your blog and I would thank them for it, but they were so immemorable that I honestly don’t even remember what they were called. And good luck finding anyone in particular through some “Top 5 books” list.
I have spent a long time reading you, and “getting it.” Only problem was that I never put it into action. I never got moving. I was convinced that just knowing it was enough, but it wasn’t.
This month, I have taken the first real step in moving forward.
In the middle of December 2014, I read something you posted, and it planted something in me. It solved all of my problems, except one. Moving forward. I was determined to believe that I could use my external world as motivation to get going. The more my life sucked, the easier it would be. Subjective, I know, but my life is, at this moment, awful. I can’t even get a 9-5. I can’t even get part time. But so what? I have an internet connection and I know a few things to get my started.
One of the best gifts you have given me over the years was mindset. I wish I had gotten it all together sooner, but you know, “Could have, would have, should have.”
I was hoping to use my environment as a motivator to get things rolling. I was an idiot. My life sucked before that and it didn’t help me any. I wanted it to get better, but I never did anything to make it better. Makes the ronin an even greater metaphor for what I should have been thinking.
You posted something on the 18th (Part 2 of “How to Stop Living Life in Black & White and Start Living Life in Full Color”), and since then, I am almost 2/5ths done with a project I’ve been working on since that post of yours I read in December of 2014. I’ve restarted the entire project on the 20th and am already further than I’ve ever been with it. When I finish, I’ll start on a new project. Easy peasy. Turns out “Reading to learn more” doesn’t count as progress, and I’ve learned more about it by doing than I have by reading. Of course, I’m sure you knew that would happen anyway.
PS: Thanks for sharing Marie Kondo’s book as well I haven’t read it yet, but there’s so much information about it on the internet that even that has been a boon to me.”
Thank you all for coming here and changing your life by moving forward. See you tomorrow.
