20 Nov 2019IDEASBY SweetEscape

SweetEscape is an on demand photography platform that can capture any moment, any time and any where you would like. For some of us, life might have been an easy ride for the most part or so far so good as they would say. But maybe for others, life has been otherwise, and sometimes it gets a bit difficult to be thankful after the many obstacles and challenges that have come your way. The circle of life continues, and you’re bound to have those ups and (unwanted downs). A little but useful tip for you is to try to change your perspective and instead of feeling repressed at how life has been treating you lately… find those little but meaningful things to be thankful for. Perhaps you're thinking, "How can I be thankful when life gets hard?". Our answer to that is simple; gratitude even for the smaller things in life will turn your world downside up in no time. SweetEscape is here to remind you of 5 reasons to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.

1. You’re alive and well

Surviving isn't easy, and it takes the mind, body and soul to be able to get through our entire lives. Be thankful that you've lived this long, and that you get to see another day! Whether or not life is hard at the moment, know that life in itself is a process of learning, growth and so much more. Being thankful doesn't take much of an effort if only you are willing to try to build that new habit. Start your day by being thankful that you're alive and well to conquer another day.

2. Ohana means family, family means nobody gets left behind

Before everything else, you should always remember where you came from. No matter how far you’ve made it in life so far, you should remember that the very first people to care for and nurture you in this lifetime… are none other than your own family. Whether it be your parents, siblings, or extended family - they’re your family and, you know as they say, blood is thicker than water. Look back on the days when you were younger and the world seemed like such a scary place for you to face. Who was there to take care of you during those times? Perhaps it was always your mom or dad who was always by your side, and for that, you should be thankful for them!

3. Your furry friends

If you happen to have a little fur ball or pet in your lives, then consider yourself blessed! They may not be human beings… but they are capable of giving you so much love and affection, not to mention, loyalty for a lifetime. As a matter of fact… it’s been proven that for many cases, your pets are more loyal to you than humans are. Feelin’ thankful yet? You better! Think about it. Who is always there to greet you happily every time you come home from work everyday, and never complains or gets tired of being left alone at home? Give your pet(s) some love and affection to thank them for all those irreplaceable moments of companionship.

4. Your human friends

For as long as we’re alive and on this planet, we’ll be needing friends and our networks to keep on going until our time comes. Sometimes your family or significant other aren't enough, and you just need those extra special people who would see you in a different light. If you are blessed with special friends and friendships that have been going on for years and perhaps even decades, you should be extremely thankful for these friends of yours. Friends are easy to make, but it's the real ones that are hard to find. When you've already gotten that person, thank them for having been there for the many times you were down.

And last but not least… remember to thank

5. Yourself!

Why? Because you’ve made it this far in your life, and wherever you are right now isn’t for nothing, we assure you! You have a purpose in this life, and for that, be thankful that you’re still able to do the things you to, need and want to do. It's always so easy to look up and see those who seem more better off than you. Maybe they've got that dream car you've always wanted, or maybe they live in the kind of house you've always pictured of living in. The more you think in that manner, the more life will seem to crumble down. Don't forget to look at the less unfortunate every so often, and you'll be surprised at how much you'll be thanking yourself more.
